Sniper List: Jonathan Should Be Held Responsible If Any Harm Befalls Buhari – Fashakin

Jonathan-and-BuhariFormer spokesman of the defunct Congress for Progressive Change (one of the legacy parties that merged to form the All Progressives Congress), Engr. Rotimi Fashakin, has warned that the presidency would be held responsible should any harm befall former Head of State, Gen. Muhammadu Buhari (rtd).

Fashakin was reacting to a tweet by former Minister of Federal Capital Territory, Malam Nasir El-Rufai, on Thursday that top politicians as Buhari, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, Governor Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi, Interim National Chairman of APC, Bisi Akande and himself are on the purported political watch list of the presidency.

“I am number seven on the GEJ (Goodluck Ebele Jonathan) sniper list, so I will only worry when GMB (General Muhammadu Buhari), Asiwaju (Tinubu), Amaechi, Akande, etc, are killed”, he tweeted.

Fashakin, who said the former military Head of State’s camp was not surprised that the General’s name was on the list, stated that Buhari got 12 million votes on the platform of CPC, a 10-month-old party at that time, and had since then remained a nightmare to the President.

He said, “Everybody knows that the name of Gen. Buhari conjures fear in the heart of the President. That is why they would rather wish that he is no longer in the equation. El-Rufai cannot be far from the truth when he asserted the VIPs that are in the wanted list. He is totally correct.

“Jonathan’s presidency should tell us why (former Chief Security Officer to the late Head of State, Gen. Sani Abacha, Hamza) al-Mustapha is being kept in the Army.

“One of the things that will be giving the presidency sleepless nights will be how to rig. They used some incumbent governors to reduce the vote of the CPC”.

The defunct CPC spokesman added that former President Olusegun Obasanjo’s letter to Jonathan did the nation a great service, adding that the President’s response did not erase any doubt.

He expressed his suspicion over the reinstatement of al-Mustapha into the army after 15 years in detention. He said it might not be unconnected with the watch list as alleged in Obasanjo’s letter.

“Knowing al-Mustapha’s antecedent as one who superintended over Abacha’s killer squad, why shouldn’t we be apprehensive that this government is trying to play with fire”, Fashakin said.

He also said it was the duty of the Nigerian state to protect Buhari, as a former Head of State.

Fashakin added, “It will be a shame to the Nigerian state, if the amiable General is allowed to be taken out just like that. It is not for him to protect himself; it is for the Nigerian state to ensure that the dastardly plot does not succeed because he has served Nigeria meritoriously. It’s a good thing that Nigerians have been put on notice. So, if anything happens to Buhari, we know that direction we should be looking at”.


  1. When Gods judgement begins no man can stand against it, i am that i am knows who is who. This is falacy, buhari is very close to his grave, if the God decide about his death you cant stand against it, no one should hold jonathan responsible, there is no space for criminals he must remain as president, leave jonathan alone. If you are a sniper that is your business we nigerian dont want to know, which of nigerian have you assisted,? politics is a game we all understand that, but let God arise, let his enemies be scattered, jonathan must remain as the lord has demanded unless he decide not to rule. But no one can defeat him, he wont rig any election. Proper election must be conducted unlessnigerians decide you cannot decide for nigerian, repent Gods justice will arise if any thing should happen to jonathan, and is going to be a very long justice, and all of at the cabinet wont have peace, God rule nigeria not man. For peace to reign, we must abide with the rules and regulations that guide this country and this country national anthem …. O God creation direct our noble course guide thou our leaders right , help our youth the truth to know in love and honest y to grow and leaving just and true to build great lofty heights attain. To build a nation where peace and justice shall reign.

  3. It is El rufai who is planning asssasinations……I wonder why he has not been interrogated.At least to make the sniper list public……this man is high on cheap drugs…………………..

  4. The hit-list that obj n apc are ranting about is their dirty linen because Al’mustapha is the only nigerian that have their records, that’s why they wanted to eliminate him. GEJ was insulted as a minority,but the day he freed Al’mustapha was the day every politician saw their days numbered,pdp’s problem started and as you can have it apc became clueless. But hey, one day al’mustapha will grant interview to CNN and not BBC hause service. Read between lines if your wise
