General Muhammadu Buhari (rtd)

By  Chuks Okocha       

The Federal Government Monday replied the former Head of State and the Presidential Candidate of the Congress for Progressive Change (CPC), General Muhammadu Buhari, call for a revolution, stating that the alleged revolution comment would consume him first.

The former Head of state was quoted as saying that the PDP and its leadership do not accept social justice. “If there is no social justice, it is a question of time, there would be revolution in one form or the other. After the last general election, we went as far as to the Supreme Court, but after that, see what happened in Kogi, Adamawa and Sokoto states during the bye-elections. We believe that PDP leadership is not prepared for real democracy and social justice. And I hope they will be strong enough to go through the consequences of their injustice.”

Buhari also said the money expected to educate children, build roads, hospitals and provide the required security was being siphoned abroad urging Nigerians to rise against corruption, saying: “By 2015 whoever stole public funds has automatically sentenced himself to death.”

But the Minister of Information and National Orientation, Mr. Labaran Maku, who spoke when he and members of the PDP in Nasarawa State visited the National Chairman, Alhaji Bamanga Tukur, said it was those who call for revolution that would be first to be  consumed in the process.

According to him, “We have heard them talking about revolution, but it will sweep the other side first. CPC isn’t organised anywhere. You can see from Kaduna, to all the other places, CPC isn’t an organised party.”

On the loss of the governorship election by the PDP in the state, the Minister said: “We were robbed in Nasarawa, we won a clear election; none of us here is happy. We won, but lost in the court.

“We won clearly, there is no doubt about it. So, you can see that you cannot have twenty-four members in the House of Assembly and you say we lost the general election.. We should reclaim Nasarawa; it is too close to the Villa to be left to the opposition; we cannot allow that.”

Earlier in his speech, Tukur had urged the party in the state to eschew violence and preach peace as this is the only panacea for development and investment.

According to Tukur, “There is hope for our country; we came with a new zeal, we came with a new determination and commitment to ensure that our party, the greatest party in Africa take the lead. With the kind of support I have seen here today, we can achieve more.

“We have a very clear manifesto for our people in order to assist our people take the advantage of the development fortunes that is in our country today, to make it better,” Tukur told the visiting Nasarawa State PDP delegation.

Also, it described the Buhari’s party, the Congress for Progressive Change as a disorganized party that is not capable of doing any meaning thing, referring to the  poor electoral outing of the party in Kaduna state and other states in the last general election.

  • Labaran Maku is just a praise singer to Jonathan,both of them have no direction,Maku is not even ashamed of saying that the PDP was robbed in Nassarawa state,he should keep quiet and continue singing as he is just an opportunist. I always feel ashamed of having such a person as my country's image maker. He is just a sycophant.

  • They did not address the issues raised by Buhari, rather the reply is full of trash and empty claims. Are Nigerians not suffering? Are they not looting the country blind? Those who disallow peace reforms often pave ways for violent revolution

  • i supported Buhari for revolution. PDP as a party is a corrupt party and evil. we had several stealing issues, but no action could happen. We need opposition party as president in 2015. PDP should go to hell and one day nemesis shall fall upon them.

  • Labaran Maku is a political light weight whose words about Nasarawa should also be taken lightly. Him and his ilk will not succeed in reclaiming the State. Tanko Almakura is a performing governor and has opened the eyes of the people to what good governance and accountability really is. The shoes the CPC government is adorning is already an over-size for PDP and their thieving click.

    We are already witnessing the revolt of the poor and PDP's self denial will not help them. Politicians are now scared of visiting their constituencies for fear of assaults from their people, jungle justice is on the increase everywhere as the citizenry have lost confidence in our law enforcement agencies and the judiciary etc. If this is not the begining of revolution, what is it?

  • The federal government should order the arrest of Mohammed Buhari and prosecute him for his inciting comments on the government of the federation.His activities are amounting to treasonable felony and attempts to overthrow the government. No matter the lenth he will go, his time of governance of nigeria has passed. he will NEVER be the president of nigeria come 2015, Except there is no God, but we know there is the almighty God incharge of the affairs of nigeria. Buhari should stop parading himself as a sacred cow of nigeria. The Abba Father (The Universal Theocracy leader of the Whole World, The King of Kings and The Lord of Lords is already in charge of the entire Human race including the Nigerians he has been killing with his Boko Haram activities. Nemecess will soon be cought up with him, it is just a quation of time.

  • One could clearly see the despiracy of our past Generals like Buhari in ruling at all cost to further deteriorate the Nigerian economic and developmental growth by calling for revolution. It was not Buhari that really did all the good governance during his ruling time but IDIAGBON of blessed memory but Buhari now claiming to be the saint in attempt to siphon what IDIAGBON did not allow him to do. Why not proffer solutions or expose if sincerely you have evidence of mismanagement in the present and the past Governance in order to bring development to the country instead of the deterioration that your call for revolution will bring. You are a disgrace to the true Northerners and to all the former Presidents of Nigeria with this your call.

  • It is not enough to chastise Gen Buhari over the situation in the country but PDP Govt must appreciate they are very unpopular amongst Nigerians at the moment and if they continue like this something will give sooner than later.The issue of monumental corruption that affect always members of the same party in all sectors of the economy is very unfortunate,or how do we reconcile that most high profile monumental corruption cases involve PDP Members and FG appear to be protecting them? Nigerian people are tired of excuses in completing the NIPP Projects and continued darkness after Trillions of Naira has been sunk into projects that should not take upto Two Years to implement.How do you reconcile that Niger Republic built brand new Refinery and our president went to commission it while we are importing refined petroleum products and paying superflous sums as subsidy to oil rogues that are members of PDP too.This Govt is going the way of NPN Govt as at 1983 before they were toppled and it is behaving like Emperor Nero who was singing poem while Old Rome was on fire.GEJ should please confirm that he is not interested in 2015 Presidency to avoid scuttling even his first term.The Govt cannot allianate itself from the people

  • As an opposition party leader the retired General Muhammadu Buhari is doing his right obligatory
    for his party and entire Nigeria as a whole and I congratulate him for voicing out the truth for the
    nation and we need people like him not on religious level who will summon himself to fight for
    injustice in the country. Is not his first time in office we need a powerful opposition to balance
    the way things is done in our system of Government.The world is modernizing each an every
    day so that we can forget doing monkey business.
    What inspire me about General Muhammadu Buhari before was that he was a good
    administrator in some ways with hash laws and some unlawful restrictions of people and in some
    cases as a military rulles so human right record can not be perfect in doese days of aging
    and therefore we should also now that his economic obligations was exelent which he nearly
    resolve our dept with the IMF and the world bank.Not forgeting General Muhammadu Buhari
    and his counterpart introduce an austourity measurs which is the same as President good
    luck Jonathan fuel and kerosen subcidy so therefore I have not seen any wrong doing yet but
    we need opposition activist in other to develope, matually in a good proccess. After all a
    good administrator should always be allowed to remain our piller of hope for the country.
