Jonathan’s government is “the biggest Boko Haram” – Buhari

by Hauwa Gambo

 

The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) can call him frustrated all they want, but perennial candidate for president General Muhammadu Buhari will not be shutting up anytime soon. Speaking yesterday in Kaduna when members of his party (Congress for Progressive Change) visited, Buhari not only predicted crisis in the next election, but pointedly blamed President Goodluck Jonathan for the insecurity in the country. in Kaduna yesterday when he received a delegation from the Niger State chapter of the Congress for Progressive Change, General Buhari said also that the next general elections must be free and fair or else there would be serious crisis in the country.

“I will like to quote Professor Ango Abdullahi that said there are three Boko Harams, including the original one led by Muhammed Yusuf who was killed and his supporters tried to take revenge in attacking the law enforcement agencies and politicians,” Buhari said.

“There is another developed Boko Haram of criminals who steal and kill, while the biggest Boko Haram is the Federal Government,” Buhari claimed, without expatiating on the third category.

He also responded to criticism that Northern leaders have not done enough to help solve the problem. “Since the leaders now don’t listen to anybody but do whatever they wish, there is nothing the North can do,” he said.
Not surprisingly, his comments soon turned to politics and matters of his personal ambition. “In 2015, there must be a free and fair election or there will be a serious crisis,” the general and former military head of state said. “God willing by 2015, something will happen. They either conduct a free and fair election or they go a very disgraceful way.”
On the subject of his contesting for the presidency in 2015; a subject over which he seems to have deliberately been ambiguous in recent times, he didn’t offer much clarity yet again, implying that he is still considering a position on whether or not to stand for election in 2015. “That was what I told those who have visited me in the past but the press wrote that I said I have changed my mind about re-contesting,” he said.
His guests were certainly happy to hear this. According to Umar Shuaibu, chairman of the Niger State chapter of the part, “We were apprehensive when General Buhari posited that the 2011 elections were the last he would participate as a candidate. To us that was akin to a father deserting his children at the utmost time for their need for direction. However, we received with joy the recent assurance of General’s resolve to continue in politics to the end of his life.”
Over to you, PDP.

  1. Buhari what u mean to say is"if I don't win the election of 2015 I will cause violence in Nigeria".That is an illiterate and "boko haram"approach to democracy.Be rest assured that God loves Nigeria and will not allow it to be ruled any more by a MISANTROP FUNDAMENTALIST AND EXTREMIST LIKE U.
