2015 elections: We Are Battle Ready — Buhari

 

After a careful reflection of the outcome of the April 2011 general elections, former  head of state and Congress for Progressive Change (CPC) presidential candidate, General Muhammadu Buhari (rtd), yesterday concluded that the 2015 general election will be a “fierce bloody battle”.

He said, “We have decided, together with the party leaders, that by the year 2015, God willing, it’s either the government does justice in the conduct of elections as always claimed by them or it will be a fierce bloody battle.”

He expressed hope that the alliance talk between his party and ACN will yield a positive result.

Buhari spoke in his Kaduna office when he received his party officials from Niger State who paid him a courtesy call. ‘‘The biggest Boko Haram is the federal government itself,” he stated.

According to him, the magnitude of corruption and insensitivity in Nigeria’s leadership is legendary but there is a storm of awareness “God willing, by 2015, something will happen. They either conduct a free and fair election or they go a very disgraceful way,” Buhari said.

On whether he would contest in 2015 or not, he stated that the party faithful should organise themselves while he re-considers his position as to whether he will or not. “That was what I told those who visited me in the past, but the press wrote that I said I had changed my mind about re-contesting.’’

Speaking on the subsidy probe, the general said that the current leadership of the country has destroyed the petroleum industry.

“This kind of thing can only happen under the type of Nigeria’s current leadership. Nowhere in the world can such things happen now and nowhere in the world can government increase the cost of petroleum product by more than 120%; it is most insensitive. Besides the air people breathe, the next important thing to them is petroleum products.

“I personally asked the FG then to sign the contract for Warri and Kaduna refineries, 100,000 barrels each; more than 20 depots, more than 3,200 line pipes and there was even a time we were exporting 100,000 barrels per day of refined products, but this current leadership has destroyed the industry.

He told his visitors: “I thank you for your unity and the cooperation given to us in Niger State, particularly CPC loyalists in the state. I am also happy that those elected under the CPC are doing their best and their actions are telling well on the party and on the country in general because they are meeting the mandate given to them by the electorate.

“This is why I told all our party members across the wards in the country that, by the year 2015, Nigeria will turn to Igabi or we should all forget about the election totally so that we know we are slaves, God forbid.”

Buhari on Boko Haram

Buhari stated that northerners were doing their best on the issue. “Don’t forget that the police and military are not under northerners’ control, so the only thing they can do for now is to talk.

“If the leaders in government do not listen to advice, then, the northern elites can do nothing. The only thing they can do is to unite and speak with one voice and they are already doing that,’’ he said. “Since the present government claimed to be elected they should ensure that they protect lives and property of the citizenry because it is their responsibility to do that. If you notice, I did not comment on this insecurity problem but if I may quote a respected elder Professor Ango Abdullahi, he said there are three Boko Harams. There is the original one led by Mohammed Yusuf who was killed and his supporters tried to take revenge against security agents and there is another develop Boko Haram of criminals who steal and kill after which they give out statements that they are Boko Haram, and there is the biggest Boko Haram the federal government itself.

“I agree with him and I believe him because, if you listened to the Hausa Service of the BBC, you would hear what the police and military are doing to people in Kano. They go into their houses, rape their women and steal their property.”

Earlier, in his presentation, the chairman of the CPC in Niger State, Malam Umar Shuaibu, who led other party officials to General Buhari, urged him to reconsider his decision and contest the 2015 election.

According to them, “it is unfortunate that life today in Nigeria is tantamount to living in a jungle where the strong freely consume the weak, without justice to the oppressed.”

“Despite out abundant natural resources, the greater majority are living in abject poverty,” he said.

The party officials and their supporters, in the hundreds, sang Buhari’s praises, telling him that his refusal to contest in 2015 would mean a disservice to the country.

  • It is an established fact that the PDP has finally made Nigeria to faint after having beaten a terrible sickness into her. Thus, no one would want the country to die the way things are going on.
    Saving Nigeria at this point in time lies with God. No one one knew that our dear Late Musa yar’adua would not live to complete his good work. He was cool, sensitive and wise. His administration was not built on a noisy and boastful beginning. May his soul find a perfect resting place with God.
    Now, who is so confident of tomorrow, let alone 2015 that would challenge the will of God ? If the death could snatched a cool-headed leader, who does not that the arrogant would trap him and cause his untimely woe ?
    Now, a crowned head only owns the palace. The palace and the crown with their user are made by God. Therefore, Buhari would lead again if God wants it to be so. Base on my personal observation, General Buhari has the confidence to lead Nigeria, but he is too noisy to listen to people and plan well. I hope he could change.
    In short, the will of God will prevail. May He take charge of everything in Jesus Name. Amen.

  • Buhari became full God is seen u. Leadership is from God ,if God did not give u check your heart and secret intentions . I don’t agree with PDP’ but u also has some issues to settle with God.

  • Well, good Nigerians knows that most of you saying that your god may take the life of a man or kill him, who feel the pain of his citizen and want to be a solution, are the evil behind doors. If you people are not why killing a man without a trial, or if pdp claim a saint why be afraid for his contesting which is not close? ask yourself these question and no if you are right by your action.

  • I hv gone 2ru all of ur comments. But sadly the only 1 dt made a little sense wz dt of Amuchi kelvin. Despite the situation in Nigeria people are still putg sentiment in their jugement. I don’t gv a damn wht ur tribe or religion might be, because even if U’re a malam or Reverand father u knw quite well dt it’s nt possible 4u 2 2ro away constitution and rule ds country wt ur religious book. Wht’s paining me d most is, d extent ignorance in our people. They alwz C tins 4rm d tribal or religious point of view. They don’t look at personality. Provided u’re Nigerian nd U’re willing 2 bring a positive change, i hv nt C anytin wrong in it. Bt if we’ll keep on behavg ds way, so i can say we hv a long way 2 go. Fellow Nigerians, are we d only multi ethnic, multi religious or multi cultural country on ds earth?. Why can’t we C around us nd learn. Every country’s trying 2 contribute in d Global upliftment. Bt we’re here killing ourselves and allowing our merciless elite 2 continue playing wt our lives. Or do U tink now obasanjo hate Gawan because of his being a norther?. That will never be whenever they meet, they shake hands, embrace nd convers. Up there, they knw no such difference as being a Hausa, Yaroba or Igbo. Talkless of southerner, Eastner, or Northerner The only difference dt matters to them is dt of have and have not.These so call elders of ds country are very much united. Whenever two elephants are fightg it’s only d grass dt supper. Look at d situation around U, all those dt are loosing their lives in ds rampant attacks are masses. These elites and their children are alwz safe. Therefore, fellow Nigerians, we d up coming youths, d responsibility of making ds country great which our useless elders fail to, will soon fall 2 our hands. Wht’re u planing to contribute, or are u jst like them. Therefore, u better stop condemig urselves nd focuse at d task ahead. I am urging U to look in to d history and learn hw our great fore fathers ( Awolowo, Sardauna, and Zik) lived their lives. United we stand divided we fall.

  • Well, my fellow Nigerians we should remember not to our own will bt the will of God the Almighty. So we should pray may God spair our lives ameen.

  • wow, am highly disapointed with u guyz. Upon all what pdp has brought to dis nation yet u ar backing them. Well am nt surprise u are doing dis because d bad ones are ur people. But remember God is all wise and all knowing they can not decieve God. And by 2015 God shall bring them to justice.

  • u bastards, sons of bitches mostly born out of marriage, religeously weak and brain washed by the pdp. We are ready 4 u. Buhari 2015 insha Allah.

  • @Liman are you a gay that you say Buhari fuck you? I believe you are so much educated, when people make statement, you must learn to weigh such statement. The man has spoken his mind.
    The government and affairs of the country is in our hands and we keep saying we are being victimized, by who? our own person, then we are idiots.
    What is Mr President doing ? Only to send militants abroad in the name of schooling, however, they only go there to cause mischief and disgrace to the country.
    We should not be blind to reality, because of our selfishness.
