Critics of Buhari’s presidential ambition ‘agents of corruption’ — Tsav

Muhammadu Buhari, APC presidential candidate

A former Commissioner of Police, Abubakar Tsav, has dubbed those urging retired Maj-Gen. Muhammadu Buhari not to contest the 2015 presidential elections “enemies of Nigeria”.

Mr. Tsav told the News Agency of Nigeria on Saturday in Makurdi that those opposed to Mr. Buhari’s participation in the electoral process were political saboteurs and enemies of the country.

“Such persons are either agents of corruption or are corrupt themselves and dishonest.

Buhari has been tested four times and each time he proved that he is honest and incorruptible.

“He was military governor but never stole a dime; he was minister of petroleum still he never stole as head of state, he never stole, instead, he introduced discipline and orderly behaviour in society,” Mr. Tsav said.

The former commissioner dismissed allegations of religious extremism against the former head of state, saying that his driver is a Christian till date.

Mr. Tsav, who is also an anti-corruption crusader, said that Mr. Buhari had no house either in Abuja or Lagos or in any part of the world.

He said the country needs honest politicians like Mr. Buhari to restore its lost glory, regretting that the country had “slided into a culture of impunity with top government officials siphoning public funds without shame’’.

Mr. Tsav criticised the recent arms deal in South Africa and the involvement of highly placed Nigerians, stressing that the country needs an upright leader to redeem its battered image.

    The problem with Buhari is that he is too old and too incompetent especially in the crucial area of control and management of men and resources.

    Sheik Ahmad Gumi to Buhari:

    “Sir, your weakness is not in your past impeccable record of accountability of public wealth and the fight against corruption and indiscipline. Your weakness is in your inability to control men”.

    IBB to Buhari:

    “Let me at this point attempt to make you understand the premise upon which it became necessary to change the leadership.

    The principles of discussions, consultation and co-operation which should have guided decision-making process of the Supreme Military Council and the Federal Executive Council were disregarded soon after the government settled down in 1984.

    Where some of us thought it appropriate to give a little more time, anticipating a conducive atmosphere that would develop, in which affairs of state could be attended to with greater sense of responsibility, it became increasingly clear that such expectations could not be fulfilled.

    Regrettably, it turned out that Major-General Muhammadu Buhari was too rigid and uncompromising in his attitudes to issues of national significance.

    Efforts to make him understand that a diverse polity like Nigeria required recognition and appreciation of differences in both cultural and individual perceptions, only served to aggravate these attitudes.”

    Atiku to Buhari:
    “I believe that the next president of our country, who by the grace of God will be produced by our great party, must be someone who is a unifier, bridge-builder and not someone who bears ethno-religious bias. Above all, he must embody a vision of a Nigeria for all.”

      Where is Gumi’s frank message to President Calamity Jona?

      You are afraid of the man GMB. You are most likely one of those preparing to go to exile in 2015. Because in that year nigerians with their votes will enthrone good governance, security of lives and property, accountability, orderliness and all those tendencies that edify a people. And because you and your ilk cannot survive decency you will be forced to run away from Nigeriia. I dey laff o!

  • Mr. Abdin

    Buhari no doubt is a great leader but now he should please step aside for other aspirants so that he can be the father of the nation.

    • Enemona

      We need a great leader not a great father!

    • Tonnero

      What do you mean? Why do you want a great leader to stand aside while you use mediocre leaders especially in these trying times for Nigeria. It is like going to play against Barca but using your second eleven!

    Four people runs this country from the comfort of their homes, they install whoever they like to be president and use money to buy conscience of many ethnic groups, ironically, the money is being generated from the resources of the nation and from underneath the land where those people that hated the four people lives, those four people will not allow GMB to rule because of their fear of losing their grips on the nation and fear of anti-corruption crusade that GMB might launch against them, so they will prefer their representative (GEJ) and his world Bank attache (NOI) to carry on, using whatever means in their power to do so, the four people are corrupt, and i am still wondering why some ethnic and religion jingoists in our society haven’t turn against them yet despite their history of atrocities in the country, but why should GMB of all people with nothing but goodwill for the nation be castigated?, my brothers and Sister, the following four people have committed religious and ethnic atrocities in Nigeria than anyone, and they are still alive and yet you see them as untouchables, TY Danjuma, Abdusalami Abubakar, Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida and David Mark. These four people will do anything to make sure GMB never gets there so that Nigeria can never be free from their grips.

      This space is not for scammers. Everybody here can afford credit. But for some people especially those who vehemently oppose GMB’s aspiration, it may be useful because for them even life is a scam

    See who is talking, supporting Buhari means he wasn’t corrupt as a police officer?

  • growthengine

    Tsav, that is a blanket statement. You are being fanatic about Buhari, that is very dangerous, he is free to contest, but we will not vote for him, how does that make people agents of corruption.

    There is a better way for PDP to come back to into prominence.
    1. Leverage the current battle against corruption by prosecuting and eliminating every corrupt element in your ranks. Make it your goal to outflank APC by showing a level of transparency that is even more credible and provable.
    2. Fighting against biometric voting is a non-starter. Embrace it. It is the only effective tool against election rigging in a transparent election.
    3. Demonstrate that you care for the common man in states controlled by PDP by setting an example in governance that would be the envy of other states.
    4. Have a clearly defined ideology that can be can be clearly articulated and contrasted with that of your political antagonists.
    5. Be the peace maker between the the north and the south by seeking common grounds and eliminating the divisive politics of ethnicity. Groom leaders that are fluent in Hausa, Yoruba and Igbo.
    Nigeria would be a better place if you make emerge as the new PDP with these attributes.
