Group alleges plot to assassinate Buhari

Muhammadu Buhari speaking at Chatham House

The Buhari Vanguard, a group supporting the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Muhammadu Buhari, has accused the Nigerian Presidency and the ruling Peoples’ Democratic Party, PDP, of a sinister plot to assassinate Mr. Buhari.

Mr. Buhari, 73, is the flag bearer of the APC in the March 28 election.

In a statement on Monday, the Buhari Vanguard said they had become “extremely concerned” over the safety of the APC candidate.

“We cannot close our eyes and pretend that we do not see danger. We suspect that the PDP and the Presidency must be up to something sinister and may just be watering the ground for a soft landing when it is finally executed,” said Jasper Azuatalam, chairman of the group.

“We express fear that some people may be targeting to assassinate Gen Muhammadu Buhari and turn round to claim that it is their prophecy fulfilled.

“We have not forgotten that late last year, Gen Muhammadu Buhari narrowly escaped death when his convoy was attacked by a suicide bomber two days after he accused the Presidency of not doing enough to ensure the security of lives and properties of Nigerians.

“President Jonathan set up an inquiry into the attack, but we have not heard anything about the inquiry till date.”

According to the group, the recent paid advertorials on national newspapers by some prominent PDP members predicting Mr. Buhari’s death are part of a plot to test the waters before carrying out their motive.

“The spokesperson of the President Jonathan’s 2015 campaign has severely turned into a prophet of doom by prophesying the death and incapacitation of Gen Muhammadu Buhari,” Mr. Azuatalam said.

“They have forged false medical reports claiming that Gen Buhari has a terminal sickness. They have spread rumours of death and incapacitation about Gen Muhammadu Buhari when there is no sign of fever in Buhari.”

The group wondered why eyebrows are being raised over Mr. Buhari’s health after he had contested in three general election and “remained healthy and strong”.

“One cannot but imagine why the Presidency and the PDP is trying to convince Nigerians that Gen Muhammadu Buhari cannot live up to four years if elected president of Nigeria this year,” said Mr. Azuatalam said.

“The Presidency and PDP have publicly announced that the fate of Umaru Musa Yar’adua will (befall) Gen Buhari. The latest is that they have started predicting those who will take over office from Gen Buhari, if he is elected as President of Nigeria and dies like they have predicted.”

The group called on Nigerians and the international community to “keep an eye” on the Presidency and the PDP regarding Mr. Buhari’s safety.

“The PDP and Presidency have almost exhausted all avenues to stop Gen Buhari from contesting the 2015 general elections, now they are scheming to scuttle the whole election in its entirety.

“Who can tell if the only option remaining to stop change in Nigeria will not be to assassinate the Presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Gen Muhammadu Buhari.”

    By God grace their wish will befall their candidate not the General.

    They would all rot and die in prison after election #March4Buhari

    • CHRISTOPHER AGBO

      #March4Buhari, may God bless you.

  • tundemash

    Nothing is beyond the nest of killers; if they can assasinate their own, why not the symbol of opposition and change. Russia just did same 2 days ago and the PDP rogues might want to copy that solution.

  • trippi

    Who will wan a kill a an already semi dead man… His ancestors are already calling on him…

  • bobjk

    Adam b, are you the Gateman in hell?

  • share Idea

    GEJ has said that his presidential campaign does not worth the blood of any citizen more so his main rival. Please can we stop heating up the polity. The main question is…, where is APC presidential candidate? Remember that Buhari said in London that he’ll make NNPC and Custom accounts open to the public but there is a saying that says charity begins at home, let him be open to Nigerians with his personal activities. Is he still on a working visit in UK?

    • wheingo

      You are so controversial, yet you keep on contradicting your self you mentioned “his personal activities” and you still want him to make it open to the public. Language my friend, anything personal remains personal.

      • share Idea

        So for citizen to know whereabout of his supposed leader (president) is being controversial. Can you be real for once and acknowledge that Buhari let you guys (his supporters) down on this, just like the way he handled his certificate issue.

    • Mosaku 147

      The General is now on a working visit to cleanse your parents head.olosi.

  • Victor Gee

    APC the noise makers and false alarm raisers

    • Mosaku 147

      Victor Gee the king of mumu kingdom.

  • Mr. Abdin

    The desperation of the PDP is too much and hopefully it will not lead to what the group is accusing them of.

    • CHRISTOPHER AGBO

      Don’t say that, if it leads to that, we don’t know what they might do to Buhari

  • Victor Gee

    What is APC hidding in Buhari’s health.

    • wheingo

      Ask your noise makers in the PDP the likes of FFK and Co they seems to know much better about his health status.

  • Jaspa Matanga

    For the all the period GEJ has been in power, no body has been assassinated as was the case under Obasanjo. GEJ is a God-fearing man who God has anointed to transform Nigeria. He did not muscle into the Presidency by his powers like Obasanjo, Buhari and others but by divine providence which has sustained him and will continue to sustain him till 2019. GEJ does not need to and will not shed any person’s blood to retain the Presidency till 2019. The wind-bags kicking up this shindy should go to the law enforcement authorities if they are serious. Otherwise let them shut up and let us enjoy the Fresh Air from GEJ.

    • wheingo

      Look at how you easily forgot history, let me take you back a little bit… what would say then about Gen Azazi who mysteriously die together with Patrick Yakowa Kaduna state Governor the, in a copper crash sometimes after saying PDP is boko haram? The murder is so open and easily point the person responsible for that.

      • CHRISTOPHER AGBO

        Tell him bro, 13,000 Nigerians have died under PDP’s watch

    • CHRISTOPHER AGBO

      Okay, lets move away from assassinations, lets look at the economy, the insecurity, the education, the healthcare, the transportation, all these sectors have been crippled under the administration of Jonathan, the economy has collapsed, Naira is being devalued, Boko Haram has killed over 13,000 Nigerians and counting over 4 years under the administration of Jonathan, the universities in Nigeria have gone on strike, the teachers have not been payed, the students are at home doing nothing, the infant mortality rate has greatly increased under GEJ’s administration, cholera has ravaged Zamfara, the Lagos-Ibadan expressway is now on almost a daily basis a location for motor accidents, the Niger bridge have not been completed, how many lives have been lost on roads alone under GEJ’s administration?, #BUHARIforpresident.

    • NoMoreKindergartenPresident!

      Which of the gods anointed GEJ to transform people into thieves, Nigeria into darkness, accept and give bribes or believe that stealing is not corruption? Certainly not my Jehovah God. Are you saying that jobless applicants killed while queuing for jobs in Abuja and those who died at GEJ campaign rally at Port Harcourt do not have blood in their system? GEJ’s wife and Wike have already killed over 30 people in River State through some thugs and ex-militants. May God transform your life with Boko Haram, power failure and all the failed policies of GEJ

      I believe you are what Funso calls you,omo ale.

  • evi

    Apc should look for another lie and propaganda to spread. This one won’t work. Their has been no political killing under Jonathan .The attack on buhari was set up by buhari to remove suspicion form him that he is the sponsor of boko haram .Jonathan that was stoned in katsina and all his billboards destroyed in the north has not complained about assassination it is buhari that is terminally sick. If they claim Jonathan wants to rig the election to win, why would he kill buhari as well when buhari already has one foot in the grave?

    • wheingo

      And yet he may live much longer than you, be careful death doesn’t care about age, fame, power, money or what so ever you may say. The only thing is when is time for you to die you die and you can die today mr. Evi.

      • evi

        Buhari has already wished death on himself by lying that he wants to be assassinated. Time will tell whether he lives before me or you.buhari’s illness is more from all his past atrocities than anything else. Nobody wished death on Yardua before he died, buhari should stop allowing tinubu use him for his own selfish ambition and concentrate on whatever health issues he has.

        • Mosaku 147

          I pray for you this night; whatever health issues you ascribe/wish Buhari will be the potion of you and your entire household. I want to hear your big Amen please.

          • egufe akuya ewu

            amen for evi….

        • Separate Us…

          Remember he contested 3 times without Tinubu

    • stabod

      Dealt has no repeat for age.

  • Peter

    APC is a party of dangerous murderers. In fact PDP is a more decent party, with most of their members looking well-fed unlike the APC with a bunch of hungry looking persons. Take a look at Buhari and his vice presidential candidate; what of Tinubu ati El Rufai ati Liar Mohammed. They all look mean and sinister. They are like this because of their desperate urge to grab powers from Jonathan. Desperate people with evil mind are always restless, mean and haggard. So if you are looking for people with murderous intention and who may be dreaming to assassinate Buhari, search for such persons in APC.

    • egufe akuya ewu

      people like your type are smiling and suffering under pdp……and suffering and smiling……it is possible you are even dieing slowly wherever you are now…….pray that you attained or surpassed BUHARI’s age….in fact you will not even cross 45yrs….you are gone…chikina….even tomorrow…God’s Time is the Best…..

    • Omotolaaraujo

      You like the fat, rich ones of which you cannot see their disdain for average Nigerians.

  • dd

    Nobody will kill him. If his doctor has certified him to live few days before living this world please cry to to your allah as GEJ cannot give aged people extra life. No need to put someone natural death on another person because is prediction his now carrying weight in a hospital in London where your grandpa Buhari is under intensive care.

  • dd

    When Fayose predict something after the wife had viewed the future people don’t take him serious. I was when he told news men he will win and Fayemi’s wife said never. Now they are there. He is saying Buhari is sick and now the the doctor is seeing the end of the aged general, you people want to put the blamed of half-dead grandpa on Fayose.

    • progress

      The God almighty is a jealous God, especially when being compared to his own creation. Fayose may be your god. But God almighty surely has the final say and may he disappoint fayose and his followers who now claim to know what the future entails.

      • dd

        Your problem is that you are as blind as Mohammed. Christ in us the hope of glory.Ability to see the future is our inheritance in Christ Jesus. Never think that your new prophet Mohammadu Buhari will live forever. He will go as everyman. Stop being too emotional about you newly found messiah.

        • stabod

          Remember that you will also return to ground.

    • Odogwu

      And you and imbecile Fayose surely will die before the general, mark my words dullard!

      • egufe akuya ewu

        fayose will die before he gets to BUHARI’s age……his generation will also die before they get to BUHARI’s age…Amen…

    • wonderboi

      So you believe that goat called Fayose, who knows beforehand that the election will work in his favour because the president had assured him military will be fully deployed and all what it takes to win the election will be given to him anyway, lets wait and see what will happen next..Ebora -owu said he will know what to do after presidential election and am sure Fayose can tell his experience in OBJ hands just wait and see as things unfold

    • Titi

      there is nothing like prediction when u were sure u were going to rig an election, it is the same when u plan to kill someone and predict he was dying, nothing intelligent about that. but u have forgotten that death is the one thing that defeats science

    • Concerned

      He knew he would win because he rigged –
      His foresight of GMB ‘s demise is likewise because he has bad intentions towards him

      But by God’s grace it will not come to past

    • Onike24

      Satanic predictions

  • dd

    Becareful when you want to stop a man called Goodluck. If you think I am lying go ask Alameseya and Yar Adua. Now you can see that the aged general is really sick of postrate cancer in an hospital in London. Please when he dies naturally don’t put the blame on the man who foresaw the event. God killeth and he maketh alive.

    • Odogwu

      As he turns to Badluck anything he touches abi, including our national economy. That it why we have decided to send him back to otuoke to go and show the Badluck to ogogoro and fish.

      • King Carlos

        God bless you. Father Mbaka said the same thing.

    • wonderboi

      He need to tread carefully though and am sure the mafia are waiting to deal with him i bet you they are just watching & waiting for him to exhaust all his presidential power,.

  • Yusuf

    the leaders of first republic were not popular in their various region, Sardauna and Balewa were seen as elites and were facing the strong movement of ‘talakawas’ (the masses) lead by Aminu Kano, Akintola was also facing stiff opposition from Awo’s men in the west, but yet their brutal murder tore the country into two. Killing ‘our last legend’ will certainly tear this country into peaces.. I pray no one will contemplate this

      Don’t call Buhari a dying man cuz you are not God. He has never told anyone he is sick. Been older than you doesn’t mean he will die before you. Don’t follow in PDP footsteps and deceits.
