Former Military Administrator of Ogun and Rivers States, Group Captain Sam Ewang (retd), has said former Head of State and All Progressives Congress national leader, Gen. Muhammadu Buhari (retd), has the requisite qualities to pull the country out of the woods.
Speaking at the inauguration of Buhari Friends Organisation Network, weekend, Ewang warned that the country would be worse for it if President Goodluck Jonathan is re-elected for another four years in 2015, as according to him, “he (Jonathan) does not have the capacity to lead the country for another four years”.
He said: “I have been talking to my friends in the PDP and they are listening. It is true that one of us from the South-South is occupying the position of President today. But it is not about brother, but about the capacity to lead.
“We did not know him before giving him the mantle of leadership. He would have been there for six years by 2015. He has done his best. You cannot give what you don’t have. We know Buhari and what he can do. I can assure you that Buhari is the only person who has what it takes to stop the corruption and insecurity in this country”.
The former military governor lamented that Nigerians are yet to know the quality of the person of the Buhari, while pledging his total support to the APC chieftain’s presidential aspiration in 2015.
Also speaking at the occasion, former Deputy Governor of Bauchi State, Alhaji Garba Gadi, said that Buhari remains the only man standing in terms of ability to provide good leadership in the country.
While naming two categories of Nigerians that do not want Buhari’s emergence as president – they include those who have stolen the nation’s wealth and are afraid of being probed by Buhari – Gadi assured that the APC will form the national government in 2015.
National Coordinator of the Buhari Friends Organisation Network, Athanasius Okon, said that the organisation was formed based on the resolve to set a template for leadership recruitment across the country with emphasis on selection based on merit, capacity to perform, will power to enforce laws and the provision of essential services and security for the citizens.
