100 Jonathans Cannot Be Compared To Buhari – Tam David-West

Published

on

Tam-David-West-480x300Former Petroleum Minister, Prof. Tam David-West, says the only reason Governor Rotimi Amaechi of Rivers State is being harrassed by some political forces is his refusal to be anybody’s ‘Yes man’.

Prof. David-West, speaking on a radio programme in Port Harcourt, also asked President Goodluck Jonathan to be wary of the Ijaw leader, Chief Edwin Clark and leader of the Niger Delta People’s Volunteer Force (NDPVF), Alhaji Mujaheed Dokubo-Asari. He said neither of them had the powers to make him win the 2015 election.

David-West showered encomiums on General Muhammadu Buhari, who he said stood tall when compared to President Jonathan in terms of achievement as Nigeria’s leader.

According to the former minister, Amaechi has had to fight alleged injustice of ceding oil wells belonging to Rivers State in the Kalabari axis to President Jonathan’s Bayelsa State.

This, he said has not gone down well with some people.

He added: “I am not a politician. No amount of money in the world can make me to change my mind. I support causes, not persons. What has Amaechi done wrong? He has not done anything wrong. Professional praise singers are making millions of naira through the crisis.

“Those who said Amaechi has received N2.4 trillion since he became Rivers governor, without commensurate projects on the ground, are talking rubbish. The Kalabari people fighting Amaechi are not serious. They are not more Kalabari than me. Amaechi has not disappointed Kalabari people.”

Pressed to assess President Jonathan’s achievements, he said: “I am an unapologetic critic of President Jonathan. I do not support you because you are an Ijaw person, from the South South zone or a Niger Deltan. I support performers. Twenty four per cent of Jonathan’s votes came from the South South.

“It is completely illogical to say Jonathan must be re-elected in 2015, because he is a South South man. Jonathan is not a South South President, but the President of Nigeria.

“Clark, Dokubo-Asari and others cannot save Jonathan in 2015. In an interview in a national newspaper on June 15, 2012, Dokubo-Asari declared that Jonathan would not go beyond 2015 as President. Why is he speaking from both sides of his mouth?

“You cannot compare one hundred Jonathans to one Buhari. I will always give my support to Buhari. He is the finest man I have ever known. Negative things that they say about him are not factual. I will continue to work for Buhari.

“Corruption is the bane of Nigeria. Buhari is against corruption. Buhari is not corrupt. He is very clean and disciplined. Election rigging is worse than armed robbery. Buhari wants free, fair and credible elections in Nigeria.”

    how come as an incorruptible leader, Buhari didn’t say a thing to condemn the inhumane act of his north Boko Haram? But when the federal government decided otherwise we heard him talked to me this attitude can not be an example act of a good leader.

    4get about prof in Nigeria,they are not real.This are the people causing confusion in the education sector without any discovery.I find it difficult to believed that Goodluck is a corrupt leader,this country has been corrupt before GEJ came to power,he use his brain to reduce corruption by subsidy removal,privatisation and centralizing of workers salaries.To me those crying that GEJ is corrupt are the corrupt people because he is trying to block their way.HE THAT NEVER SUPPORT THE GOVERNMENT WILL NOT BE SUPPORTED WHEN HE IS GIVING THE MANDATE.
