The debt that Buhari owes to himself | The Guardian Nigeria News


In two previous presidential attempts by President Muhammadu Buhari, he met with failure. Then he bet on his cult supporters in northern Nigeria. At the time, Buhari was the embodiment of the fundamentalist, Spartan and pious Muslim. His failure in these presidential electoral adventures has shown Nigerians that no part of the country can go it alone. Even despite the unbalanced unitary constitutional electoral arrangement, sectarian permutations failed candidate Buhari. As is happening right now, the Buhari Mafia realized that their political policy as conceived was unrealistic and unattainable. They then wisely contacted the right people, agreed to terms, made concessions, ultimately leading to the historic Nigerian merger that defeated a sitting president for the first time in Nigerian history. While the gentleman’s agreement that won the political establishment in the Southwest has not been made public, it is safe to say that Buhari’s cabal conceded reasonable positions to its political partners.

As the Buhari administration enters its final 18 months, all expectations are now set as to whether the president will honor the final step in the deal of supporting the presidency of a member of the Bola Tinubu group as his successor. . Much to the satisfaction of the Tinubu Group today, Tinubu’s ouster as a running mate in 2015, now makes him eligible today due to Buhari’s poor performance over the past six years.

Unlike 2015 where we saw him as the messiah, the current economic depression we find ourselves in makes every member of the Buhari regime ineligible in 2023. All the more so due to banditry, kidnappings and the Boko Haram insurgency. ongoing in parts of northern Nigeria. Moreover, this administration has alienated itself from sections of the Nigerian people by its impunity, the failure to respect the federal nature of its appointments and the trial of Nnamdi Kanu, Sunday Igboho and Omoyele Sowore for treason.

But the presidency is Hobson’s choice for Nigeria in 2023. For those who may have forgotten, please juggle your memories with the following. The main opposition party, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), is a gathering of thugs. Read the revelations during the trial of President Goodluck Jonathan’s National Security Advisor Colonel Sambo Dasuki. 1: I acted on the instructions of Jonathan — Dasuki. 2: I didn’t give the order — Jonathan. 3: I collected 350 million naira from Dasuki for consultation — Iyorchia Ayu. 4: I only raised $ 30,000 from Dasuki, not N100 million — Bode George. 5: I received 4.6 billion naira from Dasuki for spiritual purposes — Bafarawa. 6: I received 650 million naira from Dasuki for my burnt down office today in Abuja – Obaigbena. 7: I received 2.1 billion naira from Dasuki for advertising — Dokpesi. 8: I received an additional 100 million naira from Yuguda — Bafarawa. 9: I gave 100 million naira each to Odili, Jim Nwobodo, Bode George and others, Yuguda.

Others include 10: Jonathan asked me to exchange 10 billion naira in foreign currency for the delegates of the PDP — Dasuki. 11: My boss asked me to get $ 11 million from the Central Bank of Nigeria, Dasuki’s accountant. 12: I have been ordered from above to pay 13 billion naira to Tompolo for the land of the Maritime University — General Manager of NIMASA. 13: 950 million naira was shared in my house — Shekarau. With all this looting, some people are still screaming, no sign of change yet. There must be consequences for these crimes or Nigeria will disintegrate. Over $ 20 billion unpaid into the Federation account, if nothing is done by 2015 Nigeria will know what the economic crisis is – Emir Mohammed Sanusi11. “Whoever wins in 2015 will never find it easy to govern. Over 30 trillion naira is mismanaged, missing or missing under Jonathan ”—Prof. Charles Soludo.

“For seven months, the NNPC did not put money into the Federation account, as sitting governor when I called, Minister Dieziani Allison Madueke refused to answer my calls” – Godswill Akpabio. “I told them to save but Jonathan had no political will to do it, that’s how we wasted our boom” – Okonjo Iweala. “Jonathan was a blessed ATM machine without a secret ID number” – Bala Mohammed. Alex Badeh hid $ 32 million in a toilet pit. Among the missing funds, 15 billion dollars were found Dieziani Madueke; $ 15 billion was missing from the arms fund; 10 billion naira given as a gift to PDP delegates. So, poverty has not only happened in Nigeria, the PDP has plundered Nigeria into recession. With the above, Buhari will be doing himself a favor by handing over the baton to an experienced group that could deter Nigeria from descending into lawlessness. His insecurity challenges force Buhari to honor his pact with the Tinubu group as unsullied members of the merger party All Progressives Congress.

It is in the best interests of the stability of the country that the CPA survive Buhari. The South West remains the cornerstone of the unity of Nigeria. The news in the South-East, the North-East and the Center-North portends dangers with the antics of the separatist movements which are becoming more relevant and daring every day. The implication is that if Nigeria’s cohesion is poorly managed, there may not be a governable country called Nigeria in 2023. Worse yet, if Buhari is ill-advised to remove fuel subsidies in 2022, which ‘he should have done in 2015, his successors might not find a country to rule in 2023. With Buhari’s nepotism, there is an urgent need to deepen national unity hard hit by banditry and Boko Haram. The remaining 18 months are too short for this government to create a meaningful legacy for Buhari. Time is running out for the cabal to forge a new alliance.
