Buhari’s supporters, Jonathan’s sympathisers clash in London

Some supporters of the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Muhammadu Buhari, and a group of Nigerians allegedly sponsored by the Nigerian government on Thursday clashed at the premises of Chatham House, London, where Mr. Buhari delivered a lecture.

Mr. Buhari, a retired major general and former military head of state, was invited to Chatham House to deliver a lecture entitled, “Prospects for Democratic Consolidation in Africa: Nigeria’s Transition”.

However, before he arrived for the event, some protesters gathered in front of the venue placards and chanting songs in protest against the the APC candidate.

The anti-Buhari demonstrators bore placards with the inscriptions such as “Buhari Belongs to the past: The past can’t belong to the future of our children”, “A dictator hiding behind another pastor cannot be a democrat”, and “Nigeria will not return to the past.”

Others wore T-shirts with inscriptions such as “Diaspora says no to a tyrant.”

However, to counter the protest, the members of the United Kingdom chapter of the APC also mobilized to the venue to confront the the PDP supporters during which a verbal clash erupted.

The pro-Buhari elements had placards bearing messages such as “Nigerians deserve better than 16 years misrule,” and “Vote Buhari/Osinbajo.”

Frayed nerves between the two camps were however calmed by officers of the Metropolitan police who patrolled the area.pro_Jonathan-protesters_Jide_Adeniji

The media had reported ahead of the event that the campaign organisation of Mr. Buhari’s main challenger, President Goodluck Jonathan had earmarked $20,000 to hire protesters in London against the APC presidential candidate.

A memo entitled “The Chatham House Rally: March Against Dictator,” which emanated from the campaign’s Assistant Director, Civil Society and Support Groups (Diaspora), Peter Mozie, said the money would be spent on mobilising the crowd, refreshing them and defraying other logistics.

Meanwhile, the spokesperson of the Peoples Democratic Party Presidential Campaign Organisation, Femi Fani-Kayode, denied mobilizing the protesters to embarrass Mr. Buhari at the event.

“My attention has been drawn to a story that I am renting a crowd to embarrass Gen. Buhari at Chatham House later today. It is a lie,” Mr. Fani-Kayode tweeted.

Prospects for Democratic Consolidation in Africa: Nigeria’s Transition, By Muhammadu Buhari

Permit me to start by thanking Chatham House for the invitation to talk about this important topic at this crucial time. When speaking about Nigeria overseas, I normally prefer to be my country’s public relations and marketing officer, extolling her virtues and hoping to attract investments and tourists. But as we all know, Nigeria is now battling with many challenges, and if I refer to them, I do so only to impress on our friends in the United Kingdom that we are quite aware of our shortcomings and are doing our best to address them.

The 2015 general election in Nigeria is generating a lot of interests within and outside the country. This is understandable. Nigeria, Africa’s most populous country and largest economy, is at a defining moment, a moment that has great implications beyond the democratic project and beyond the borders of my dear country.

So let me say upfront that the global interest in Nigeria’s landmark election is not misplaced at all and indeed should be commended; for this is an election that has serious import for the world. I urge the international community to continue to focus on Nigeria at this very critical moment. Given increasing global linkages, it is in our collective interests that the postponed elections should hold on the rescheduled dates; that they should be free and fair; that their outcomes should be respected by all parties; and that any form of extension, under whichever guise, is unconstitutional and will not be tolerated.

With the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989, the dissolution of the USSR in 1991, the collapse of communism and the end of the Cold War, democracy became the dominant and most preferred system of government across the globe. That global transition has been aptly captured as the triumph of democracy and the ‘most pre-eminent political idea of our time.’ On a personal note, the phased end of the USSR was a turning point for me. It convinced me that change can be brought about without firing a single shot.

As you all know, I had been a military head of state in Nigeria for twenty months. We intervened because we were unhappy with the state of affairs in our country. We wanted to arrest the drift. Driven by patriotism, influenced by the prevalence and popularity of such drastic measures all over Africa and elsewhere, we fought our way to power. But the global triumph of democracy has shown that another and a preferable path to change is possible. It is an important lesson I have carried with me since, and a lesson that is not lost on the African continent.

In the last two decades, democracy has grown strong roots in Africa. Elections, once so rare, are now so commonplace. As at the time I was a military head of state between 1983 and 1985, only four African countries held regular multi-party elections. But the number of electoral democracies in Africa, according to Freedom House, jumped to 10 in 1992/1993 then to 18 in 1994/1995 and to 24 in 2005/2006. According to the New York Times, 42 of the 48 countries in Sub-Saharan Africa conducted multi-party elections between 1990 and 2002.

The newspaper also reported that between 2000 and 2002, ruling parties in four African countries (Senegal, Mauritius, Ghana and Mali) peacefully handed over power to victorious opposition parties. In addition, the proportion of African countries categorized as not free by Freedom House declined from 59% in 1983 to 35% in 2003. Without doubt, Africa has been part of the current global wave of democratisation.

But the growth of democracy on the continent has been uneven. According to Freedom House, the number of electoral democracies in Africa slipped from 24 in 2007/2008 to 19 in 2011/2012; while the percentage of countries categorised as ‘not free’ assuming for the sake of argument that we accept their definition of “free” increased from 35% in 2003 to 41% in 2013. Also, there have been some reversals at different times in Burkina Faso, Central African Republic, Cote D’Ivoire, Guinea, Guinea-Bissau, Lesotho, Mali, Madagascar, Mauritania and Togo. We can choose to look at the glass of democracy in Africa as either half full or half empty.

While you can’t have representative democracy without elections, it is equally important to look at the quality of the elections and to remember that mere elections do not democracy make. It is globally agreed that democracy is not an event, but a journey. And that the destination of that journey is democratic consolidation – that state where democracy has become so rooted and so routine and widely accepted by all actors.

With this important destination in mind, it is clear that though many African countries now hold regular elections, very few of them have consolidated the practice of democracy. It is important to also state at this point that just as with elections, a consolidated democracy cannot be an end by itself. I will argue that it is not enough to hold a series of elections or even to peacefully alternate power among parties.

It is much more important that the promise of democracy goes beyond just allowing people to freely choose their leaders. It is much more important that democracy should deliver on the promise of choice, of freedoms, of security of lives and property, of transparency and accountability, of rule of law, of good governance and of shared prosperity. It is very important that the promise embedded in the concept of democracy, the promise of a better life for the generality of the people, is not delivered in the breach.

Now, let me quickly turn to Nigeria. As you all know, Nigeria’s fourth republic is in its 16th year and this general election will be the fifth in a row. This is a major sign of progress for us, given that our first republic lasted five years and three months, the second republic ended after four years and two months and the third republic was a still-birth. However, longevity is not the only reason why everyone is so interested in this election.

The major difference this time around is that for the very first time since transition to civil rule in 1999, the ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is facing its stiffest opposition so far from our party the All Progressives Congress (APC). We once had about 50 political parties, but with no real competition. Now Nigeria is transitioning from a dominant party system to a competitive electoral polity, which is a major marker on the road to democratic consolidation. As you know, peaceful alternation of power through competitive elections have happened in Ghana, Senegal, Malawi and Mauritius in recent times. The prospects of democratic consolidation in Africa will be further brightened when that eventually happens in Nigeria.

But there are other reasons why Nigerians and the whole world are intensely focussed on this year’s elections, chief of which is that the elections are holding in the shadow of huge security, economic and social uncertainties in Africa’s most populous country and largest economy. On insecurity, there is a genuine cause for worry, both within and outside Nigeria. Apart from the civil war era, at no other time in our history has Nigeria been this insecure.

Boko Haram has sadly put Nigeria on the terrorism map, killing more than 13,000 of our nationals, displacing millions internally and externally, and at a time holding on to portions of our territory the size of Belgium. What has been consistently lacking is the required leadership in our battle against insurgency. I, as a retired general and a former head of state, have always known about our soldiers: they are capable, well trained, patriotic, brave and always ready to do their duty in the service of our country.

You all can bear witness to the gallant role of our military in Burma, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Sierra Leone, Liberia, Darfur and in many other peacekeeping operations in several parts of the world. But in the matter of this insurgency, our soldiers have neither received the necessary support nor the required incentives to tackle this problem. The government has also failed in any effort towards a multi-dimensional response to this problem leading to a situation in which we have now become dependent on our neighbours to come to our rescue.

Let me assure you that if I am elected president, the world will have no cause to worry about Nigeria as it has had to recently; that Nigeria will return to its stabilising role in West Africa; and that no inch of Nigerian territory will ever be lost to the enemy because we will pay special attention to the welfare of our soldiers in and out of service, we will give them adequate and modern arms and ammunitions to work with, we will improve intelligence gathering and border controls to choke Boko Haram’s financial and equipment channels, we will be tough on terrorism and tough on its root causes by initiating a comprehensive economic development plan promoting infrastructural development, job creation, agriculture and industry in the affected areas. We will always act on time and not allow problems to irresponsibly fester, and I, Muhammadu Buhari, will always lead from the front and return Nigeria to its leadership role in regional and international efforts to combat terrorism.

On the economy, the fall in prices of oil has brought our economic and social stress into full relief. After the rebasing exercise in April 2014, Nigeria overtook South Africa as Africa’s largest economy. Our GDP is now valued at $510 billion and our economy rated 26th in the world. Also on the bright side, inflation has been kept at single digit for a while and our economy has grown at an average of 7% for about a decade.

But it is more of paper growth, a growth that, on account of mismanagement, profligacy and corruption, has not translated to human development or shared prosperity. A development economist once said three questions should be asked about a country’s development: one, what is happening to poverty? Two, what is happening to unemployment? And three, what is happening to inequality?

The answers to these questions in Nigeria show that the current administration has created two economies in one country, a sorry tale of two nations: one economy for a few who have so much in their tiny island of prosperity; and the other economy for the many who have so little in their vast ocean of misery.

Even by official figures, 33.1% of Nigerians live in extreme poverty. That’s at almost 60 million, almost the population of the United Kingdom. There is also the unemployment crisis simmering beneath the surface, ready to explode at the slightest stress, with officially 23.9% of our adult population and almost 60% of our youth unemployed. We also have one of the highest rates of inequalities in the world.

With all these, it is not surprising that our performance on most governance and development indicators (like Mo Ibrahim Index on African Governance and UNDP’s Human Development Index.) are unflattering. With fall in the prices of oil, which accounts for more than 70% of government revenues, and lack of savings from more than a decade of oil boom, the poor will be disproportionately impacted.

In the face of dwindling revenues, a good place to start the repositioning of Nigeria’s economy is to swiftly tackle two ills that have ballooned under the present administration: waste and corruption. And in doing this, I will, if elected, lead the way, with the force of personal example.

On corruption, there will be no confusion as to where I stand. Corruption will have no place and the corrupt will not be appointed into my administration. First and foremost, we will plug the holes in the budgetary process. Revenue producing entities such as NNPC and Customs and Excise will have one set of books only. Their revenues will be publicly disclosed and regularly audited. The institutions of state dedicated to fighting corruption will be given independence and prosecutorial authority without political interference.

But I must emphasise that any war waged on corruption should not be misconstrued as settling old scores or a witch-hunt. I’m running for President to lead Nigeria to prosperity and not adversity.

In reforming the economy, we will use savings that arise from blocking these leakages and the proceeds recovered from corruption to fund our party’s social investments programmes in education, health, and safety nets such as free school meals for children, emergency public works for unemployed youth and pensions for the elderly.

As a progressive party, we must reform our political economy to unleash the pent-up ingenuity and productivity of the Nigerian people thus freeing them from the curse of poverty. We will run a private sector-led economy but maintain an active role for government through strong regulatory oversight and deliberate interventions and incentives to diversify the base of our economy, strengthen productive sectors, improve the productive capacities of our people and create jobs for our teeming youths.

In short, we will run a functional economy driven by a worldview that sees growth not as an end by itself, but as a tool to create a society that works for all, rich and poor alike. On March 28, Nigeria has a decision to make. To vote for the continuity of failure or to elect progressive change. I believe the people will choose wisely.

In sum, I think that given its strategic importance, Nigeria can trigger a wave of democratic consolidation in Africa. But as a starting point we need to get this critical election right by ensuring that they go ahead, and depriving those who want to scuttle it the benefit of derailing our fledgling democracy. That way, we will all see democracy and democratic consolidation as tools for solving pressing problems in a sustainable way, not as ends in themselves.

Permit me to close this discussion on a personal note. I have heard and read references to me as a former dictator in many respected British newspapers including the well regarded Economist. Let me say without sounding defensive that dictatorship goes with military rule, though some might be less dictatorial than others. I take responsibility for whatever happened under my watch.

I cannot change the past. But I can change the present and the future. So before you is a former military ruler and a converted democrat who is ready to operate under democratic norms and is subjecting himself to the rigours of democratic elections for the fourth time.

You may ask: why is he doing this? This is a question I ask myself all the time too. And here is my humble answer: because the work of making Nigeria great is not yet done, because I still believe that change is possible, this time through the ballot, and most importantly, because I still have the capacity and the passion to dream and work for a Nigeria that will be respected again in the comity of nations and that all Nigerians will be proud of.

I thank you for listening.

      • Guguru

        Wahala,

        I agree.

  • Damilola Oluwadare

    I live in the Diaspora. These so-called Jonathan supporters should be careful. They can carry on their protest, but they should please NOT put Diaspora on their protest. Why? They represent themselves. They do not represent Nigerians in the Diaspora. And more importantly, these Jonathan supporters should wish for themselves and their families at home and in the Diaspora what Jonathan had unleashed on Nigerians where the average Nigerian lives on $2 a day. Please you are Jonathan supporters, YOU DO NOT represent Diaspora. Leave Nigerians in the Diaspora out of your Jonathan chop chop.

    • bugwu

      You are not the only person that stays in Diaspora. GEJ is already on his way to winning the election let General Buhari continue wasting his time there where he will not get a single vote.

      Hopefully Goodluck Jonathan will be arrested when he leaves office for the massive corruption under him.

    Jobless miscreants on Amnesty Program gathered to embarrass themselves for a pot of soup, see them like dirty people in Oshodi motor park instead of the UK… take a monkey out of the forest but you never can take the bush out of the animal. Nobody with self-esteem would collect $20/per head to go stand in the cold to demonstrate for continuation of corruption and insecurity, which are the hallmark of Clown Prince of Otuoke’s corrupt Govt… and, no responsible Nigerian in diaspora would accept money from a junkie like FFK to do his biddings, only the desperado and shameless thugs. These are the faces of losers because at the time Buhari spoke at the Chatham House, responsible folks were at work earning decent living. These are ex-militants from the Niger Delta, hopeless lot… lazy drunkards. Aborigine Animals!

      @Wahala. You just made my day and am very honest about this. Some of us in Canada are also very disappointed with the so-called Jonathan’s supporters parading themselves as Nigerians in London. They look more like motor park touts……despicable to say the least

      • Wähala

        Yeah, right! When Obasanjo came to talk to us with MD Yusuf in Germany shortly after leaving office, we shifted the meeting to 8pm so people didn’t have to miss work just to listen to an old warlord, those people in that gathering are most certainly jobless touts loitering around the UK… a hooker even came all the way from Manchester to share her contact details to strangers. Watch the video and cover your face in shame even though you may not know anyone in there. They’re definitely Amnesty Program ex-oil bunkerers and killers. Criminals!

  • Omooba Adekunle Orafidiya

    Those anti-Buhari words resonate with me. Is IT (Buhari) a tyrant? Yes. Is IT a despot? Yes. Does IT belong to an oppressive and wicked era in our nation’s history? Yes. Did IT not defend vile Abacha as squeaky clean? Yes. Did IT serve a rogue Abacha regime as Chairman of PTF? Yes. Did IT abuse ITS office by handing virtually everything over to ITS in-law’s Afriprojects? Yes. Can IT fight corruption after ITS campaign and upkeep have been bankrolled with the proceeds of corruption (involving the likes Bola Tinubu and Rotimi Amaechi? No. If I was anywhere in the London area, I would have joined the anti-Buhari protests.

    • Ola

      Does it (omooba Adekunle orafidiya) have a brain…no
      What does it have inside its skull… Cotton wool
      Is it a sycophant and obviously hungry…yes

  • Traditional

    This Premium Times no get shame at all? So PDP’s crowd are not PDP supporters? …and you referred to them as ‘sponsored’ but you clearly referred to the APC ‘s crowd as supporters. This is mumuism and bad belleism of the highest order. Those who misrepresent facts are liable to go to hell. PT be warned!…Duncee or any other parasite will not govern my resources anymore. Those days are gone.

    • Wähala

      The shameless are those jobless Amnesty Program miscreants standing in the cold for a pot of watery soup.

      • Walter

    • dd

      U never cry for your father dying of poverty due to laziness and you are crying for old sick general.

      • Walter

        Ode. Where are you? Still in the country right? When you’ve come out of that disease called poverty that you are trying to infect others with, let me know. I’ve known poverty and i worked hard to get out of it. And my father like you so blindly stated doesn’t even know the word poverty because he found a way out of it unlike yours.

  • bugwu

    Premium you were paid to write in favour of APC or what??? Your story is not balanced you took side with APC. Any way by 28 march when GEJ wins all these will stop.

    • burning spear

      For 2 days now, I have thought about everything I held Buhari at high esteemed thinking that he was being victimized by the lucifers in PDP, but I was wrong. I have come to a solid conclusion that he has been lying to us, his ardent supporters. I am ashamed to say this, but I must say it. I must describe Buhari in 6 words:
      1. FRAUD – he entered the army without any certificate but rose to the rank of Maj-General taking salaries and pensions which he didn’t merit.
      2. COUPIST – he was the arrowhead in ousting Gowon in 1976 as well as Shagari in 1983.
      3. LOOTER – I now believe the $2 billion in midland bank Fela sang about.
      4. BIGOT – He jailed politicians that are not from his ethnic group or how could one explain why Shagari wasn’t jailed but Ekwueme was. He feels so proud that he executed 76% of PTF projects in the north, neglecting even our Muslim brothers and sisters in the Southwest.
      5. LIAR – He maintains that Abacha didn’t steal just because he followed Abacha and looted Nigeria dry. He claims to have N1m in his bank account, yet his children are in the UK schooling where millions of naira are paid as Tuition fees.
      6. FORGER – this one is causing me depression. I can’t believe that Buhari has no single certificate, instead of him to open up, he went and forged one.
      We have no option than to stick with Jonathan till 2019.
      Buhari has messed us up wallahi!

    “Sharia should be introduced in full across Nigeria. I will continue to show openly
    and inside me the total commitment to the Sharia movement that is sweeping
    all over Nigeria. God willing, we will NOT stop the agitation for total implementation
    of Sharia in the country. It is a legal responsibility which God has given us, within the
    context of one Nigeria, to continue to uphold the practice of Sharia wholeheartedly.
    What remains for Muslims in Nigeria is for them to re-double their efforts and educate
    Muslims on the need to promote the full implementation of Sharia law.”

    …….General Muhammadu Buhari

    (2001)

      @ REPEATER STATION,

      Though this statement is senseless in a multi-religious country like Nigeria,
      but at least, Muhammadu Buhari stands for something. How about the useless
      Christian Pastors in Yorubaland who stand for nothing apart from the tithes they
      pocket, leaving Yoruba Christians leaderless and without any sensible direction
      at a time of genocidal Islamic Jihad? Because of these un-principled Pastors, it is
      now a matter of time before Nigeria is seized by force and declared an Islamic State.

      None of these useless Christian Pastors in Yorubaland ever makes any sense to me.
      In fact, none of these useless Pastors will go to heaven – none! With their addiction to
      10% tithes, they have turned Christianity into a religion of slaves and beggars of Muslim
      rulers. I think None of these Pastors should be spared when Boko Haram invades Yorubaland.
      All of these useless Pastors should be beheaded so that God may be exalted in the deserved
      punishment for those who steal by selling the Holy Spirit.

    For 2 days now, I have thought about everything I held Buhari at high esteemed thinking that he was being victimized by the lucifers in PDP, but I was wrong. I have come to a solid conclusion that he has been lying to us, his ardent supporters. I am ashamed to say this, but I must say it. I must describe Buhari in 6 words:
    1. FRAUD – he entered the army without any certificate but rose to the rank of Maj-General taking salaries and pensions which he didn’t merit.
    2. COUPIST – he was the arrowhead in ousting Gowon in 1976 as well as Shagari in 1983.
    3. LOOTER – I now believe the $2 billion in midland bank Fela sang about.
    4. BIGOT – He jailed politicians that are not from his ethnic group or how could one explain why Shagari wasn’t jailed but Ekwueme was. He feels so proud that he executed 76% of PTF projects in the north, neglecting even our Muslim brothers and sisters in the Southwest.
    5. LIAR – He maintains that Abacha didn’t steal just because he followed Abacha and looted Nigeria dry. He claims to have N1m in his bank account, yet his children are in the UK schooling where millions of naira are paid as Tuition fees.
    6. FORGER – this one is causing me depression. I can’t believe that Buhari has no single certificate, instead of him to open up, he went and forged one.
    We have no option than to stick with Jonathan till 2019.
    Buhari has messed us up wallahi!UMAR

    All that APC have said about PDP has so far proved right.

    1. They said Jonathan is planning to postpone election eventhough PDP denied it as untrue, the election was postponed
    2. They said Jonathan and Fayose are planned to rig the Ekiti election through militarization, PDP denied, but not only was the election militarized, APC leaders were arrested in droves and the election rigged, now we know.
    3. APC said, PDP was planning to mobilize people to embarrass Buhari, Fani came out to deny it but what happen today, TAN and other PDP miscreants were there.
    4. APC told Nigerians more than a year ago that Jonathan and PDP were playing with Nigerians lives using BH, they told Nigerians that Jonathan will will BH to achieve some political end, what is happening now? Jonathan has suddenly release money to buy weapons just 6weeks to the postponed election.

    Who says PDP have Nigeria interest at heart?

    WHAT GOODLUCK JONATHAN DOES NOT KNOW

    Yoruba Christians are too mentally shackled to be liberated; they can’t think.
    They are brainwashed by their naive Pastors that leadership is for Muslims.
    Yoruba Christians can no longer think by themselves – they are useful idiots.

    They’re sent to expensive schools just to mimic foreign phonetics as workers –
    with coat and tie – to begin to prostrate for mostly illiterate overlords as masters.
    Their criminal Pastors imply to Christians that suffering is equal to Christianity.

    A good deal of flogging is ahead for all these irritating Christian Pastors soon.
    Anyone really thinking of saving Christianity must ignore Yoruba Christians.
    They are hardly of use even to themselves. They are the wretched of the earth;
    more naive than sensible and wholly lacking in self-confidence as human beings.

    • Kashanu

      Excuse me,

      I have been thinking of this thing for long. There is something wrong with us Christians.
      Why must a true Christian need President Jonathan before he or she rejects Sharia law?
      Why must a true Christian need President Jonathan before or she rejects Islamic Jihad?
      Can’t we think by ourselves? Should we wait for political party to beg us to avoid genocide?
      If we need 7 billion Naira bribe to be begged to save ourselves from Jihad, we are not well.

      • Repeater Station

        “Sharia should be introduced in full across Nigeria. I will continue to show openly
        and inside me the total commitment to the Sharia movement that is sweeping
        all over Nigeria. God willing, we will NOT stop the agitation for total implementation
        of Sharia in the country. It is a legal responsibility which God has given us, within the
        context of one Nigeria, to continue to uphold the practice of Sharia wholeheartedly.
        What remains for Muslims in Nigeria is for them to re-double their efforts and educate
        Muslims on the need to promote the full implementation of Sharia law.”

        @ Madam Flora:

        Nigeria is almost an Islamic state since there is no opposition from the Yoruba Christians.
        What a shame! But once Islamic State is declared, every Pastor must be publicly flogged.

        in perfect peace. That is where me i stand on the matter. No long talk.

If people had demonstrated against Jonathan, the news would have been “massive demonstration against Jonathan in London.” London demonstrator against evil Bokohari are described by Nigerian “journalists” as commercial sex workers. The fact is that commercial sex workers have more honour than the so called Nigerian journalists who are now Bokohari’s and Thiefnubu’s lap dogs – no thanks to the dollar promise to Lagos editors.

  • burning spear

    A group, which identified itself as Northern Christian Leaders Eagle-Eye Forum, spearheaded the meeting at the International Conference Centre, Abuja, where Buhari and Osinbajo were in attendance.

    Some of the Christian leaders who openly protested the action of the patrons of the group, alleged that they were deceived into attending the meeting.

    They alleged that the organisers told them that the meeting was put in place to enable the clergymen take up Buhari on some topical issues but lamented that it “turned out to be total declaration of support for Buhari.”

    While some of the aggrieved pastors stormed out of the meeting, others stayed till the end.

    They were however shocked when contrary to the organisers’ promise to give each participant either N50,000 or N100,000 (depending on the locations from whence they came), the funds released by a governor who bankrolled the meeting, was between N3,000 and N5,000. Some of the pastors said that the money given to them was not bribe but welfare package and insisted on collecting it.

    It was learnt that the governor, whose identity was not disclosed, bankrolled the meeting with N500million.

    In his address at the occasion with the theme: “Declaring Total Support for General Muhammadu Buhari,” the chairman of the Forum, Pastor Habu Aminchi, promised that his group would not only work for Buhari but would deliver 85 percent Christian votes in the North for the APC candidate.

    However, some members of the group staged a walkout of the hall when Pastor Aminchi declared in the course of his speech that the Forum has endorsed Buhari for the presidential election.

    The angry pastors said that they were neither involved in any meeting where such a decision was reached, nor were they informed about such a position to suggest endorsement of any presidential candidate or party in the forthcoming general elections.

    Meeting initiated by Ango Abdullahi

    Pastor Aminchi stated that the group used to work for the ruling People’s Democratic Party, PDP, but that “what we are passing through today as a country made us to change our mind.”

    According to him, the idea to convene the meeting came to him after Chairman of Northern Elders’ Forum, NEF, Prof. Ango Abdullahi, called him on phone and invited him for a chat.

    Pastor Aminchi said that after his meeting with Prof. Abdullahi, he became convinced about the credibility of Buhari’s candidature against all the propaganda, an indication that all the negative media reports about him were all lies.

    • Musa Abdul

      Are you one of those Pastors? If not, you mean Nigerian Pastors cannot come out to speak for themselves? The Nigerian Pastors that I know will always speak for themselves. The people you are addressing are too informed to be deceived. Please stop harming yourself by peddling lies against men of God.

      • True

        Oh really? It’s now a case of peddling lie against men of God that they attended meeting with Buhari and shared ‘mobilization/transport’ money? But you believed Jonathan bribed them when he was alledged to have given ‘mobilization/transport’ money. You are a comedian.

    PDP apologists are always speaking with forked tongues even when the truth is staring them in the face. Ever since GMB landed in London the rumour mill has been sent into overdrive that he was dying from prostate cancer and needed urgent medical treatment. And as the days drew nearer to the 26th of Feb, they started baying ferociously that GMB was bedridden in a London hospital and incapacitated to speak. Much to their chagrin, GMB spoke to a packed audience in Chatham House after their campaign of calumny failed to deliver the death knell.

    The truth is that ‘dumb million’ Nigerians have already made up their minds who will earn their votes come 28th of March, so no amount of negative campaign against GMB will dissuade them from voting him en masse.

    They think very well too, and they investigate facts in details, but there’s another thing O!
    I think there are some hardened Jihadists inside their newsroom. These Jihadists are mean.

    They are exposing Goodluck Jonathan but they don’t ever like to expose Muhammadu Buhari.
    Is that a good thing? For five months now these Jihadist-journalists don’t investigate Buhari.
    We are asking Buhari to show simple WASC certificate but Buhari cannot show it up till today.

    Do we now need a Sovereign National Conference just to see Buhari’s WASC certificate?
    What sort of thing is this for God’s sake! People just want to see ordinary photocopy of his WASC.
    Is that asking too much? But see now, the Jihadists in Premium Times don’t even want to investigate.

    Number 4 on the list of major concern is a contradiction. Do these men not know that trying to reduce cost of governance and renumeration of public officials is the major cause of the fight between PMB and the Senate? up until now the Senate has failed to comply with TSA order by federal gov’t. If this letter is an attempt to advise PMB to close ranks, salary reduction of public officials is something that shouldn’t be advisedon d table, no matter how laudable it is. Politicians, especially our Senate, will do everything to resist PMB if he were to try to reduce their salaries. These guys need to think more and harder for solutions to the Nigerian conundrum. The problem is not ordinary. I agree that PMB needs to realign with tinubu.
