Former Nigerian Head of State, Maj. Gen. Muhammadu Buhari (rtd), Has Accused President Goodluck Jonathan Of Waging A War Against Nigeria
The former Nigerian Head of State, Maj. Gen. Muhammadu Buhari (rtd), has accused President Goodluck Jonathan of waging a war against Nigeria by using the “common wealth to subvert the system”. In a statement entitled Pull back Nigeria from the brink, issued on Monday in Kaduna in northern Nigeria, Buhari noted that whether or not Jonathan is aware of the development, what mattered most is that it is happening under his administration.
He warned that the development which was aimed at turning the country into a one-party state” did not augur well for democracy.
The former military ruler lamented that the recourse to impeachment as a punitive measure against â€œout-of-favour governors was an indication that Nigeria was gradually drifting into anarchy.
He disclosed in the statement that he had in his private capacity discussed the current situation with President Jonathan but regretted that nothing had been done to check it.
Buhari explained that he did so because, as a former Nigerian leader, history would never be kind to him if he sat back and watched it to continue.
