Lawmaker, Kassim Mohammed Kassim has said three former Nigerian leaders were already searching for President Muhammadu Buhari‘s successor.
Kassim, who is the chairman of The Democratic Youth Congress said former leaders Olusegun Obasanjo, Ibrahim Babangida, and Abdulsalami Abubakar were involved in the search.
Kassim, a member of Nasarawa State House of Assembly representing Akwanga South alleged that they were uncomfortable with Buhari’s stance on corruption.
He said this in an interview with Punch in Lafia on Monday.
He added that such moves by the former leaders was an “act of betrayal”.
“What have Obasanjo, Babangida and Abdulsalam Abubakar bequeathed to this country as leaders, if not corruption, nepotism, underdevelopment and values laced with mutual distrust and suspicion which has further compounded our journey to prosperity as a nation.
“Enough is enough. We Nigerian youths have allowed such leaders to mortgage the future of this country.
We, Nigerian youths, would henceforth use any civil and political will to resist such attempt by past leaders to … determine the common destiny of this great nation,” he said.
