I am writing this because Buhari has returned a bill to the legislature for the federal government to take over water ways and acres of land around it. In essence, he wants to secure all land around rivers in Nigeria for his Fulani kinsmen to live and breed their cattle. A move that would strip many communities of their right to the farm lands.
