Amid the hardship in Nigeria, Deji Adeyanju, a sociopolitical activist, has slammed the religious leaders in northern Nigeria over their silence during the administration of former President Muhammadu Buhari.
He was reacting to the remark by the Emir of Kano, Aminu Ado Bayero, that First Lady Remi Tinubu should tell the president that Nigerians are hungry.
Bayero spoke during the opening of the Faculty of Law at a private university on Monday in Kano State.
According to Bayero: “The hunger and starvation didn’t start with this government, but the situation has become more alarming and needs urgent attention.”
Reacting, Adeyanju posted on X: “Emir of Kano to Remi Tinubu: ‘Tell your husband Nigerians are hungry’. May God bless Sarkin Kano. But why did all the religious and traditional leaders in the North refuse to speak truth to power like this during Buhari’s eight-year disastrous regime? Not once did they speak truth to power. Sanusi Lamido Sanusi that tried, he was removed as king.”
