Insecurity: In Any Civilized Society, Jonathan Should’ve Resigned, Says Tinubu

Published

on

Bola TinubuA National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, on Wednesday said President Goodluck Jonathan’s administration lacks the political will to tackle the security challenges head on.

The former Lagos State governor, therefore, called for the president’s resignation from office.

Tinubu spoke in Ilorin, Kwara State capital, during the formal declaration of Governor Abdulfatah Ahmed’s bid for second term in office.

The former governor said: “Let me forget the protocol, because you are the votes. You are the people who must vote. We bring the greetings and respect of Lagos, Oyo, Osun, Ogun, Ekiti, Edo, Rivers, Akwa Ibom and the entire APC states in Nigeria.

“What I want to beg of you is to be ready to defend for change. The race has started again. We have endorsed Governor Abdulfatah Ahmed for second term in office as he has performed creditably well just like his predecessor, Senator Bukola Saraki”.

Referring to the PDP-led federal government, he said, “The thieves that daily steal your money. They have not given you any job; they cannot create jobs and they are starving states of funds to pay workers salaries. The best thing to do is to sweep them away through broom revolution. APC is a party of the masses.

“I saw the sea of refuges and the lies coming from Jonathan’s administration. They have exhibited failure, lack of capacity, vision, creativity; the lie of yesterday is what they repeat today and it is what they will repeat tomorrow. They are lying to you. They are lying about the security; toying about the security of this country. I don’t have time to explain the logic of their lies.

“But if you control the armed forces and you are the Commander-in-Chief of the armed of the federal republic, why should any part of this country be under occupation? And you give us excuses every day. In any civilized country Jonathan should resigned. But if he will not resign he should wait for our broom we will sweep them.

“It now behooves you to begin a house to house campaign that this is a party of the masses. You had not seen Bukola and myself mounting the same podium campaigning for the same party before this time. This is a new beginning. This is a time of good things and tidings from us. We have brought good luck and commonsense revolution”, he said.

“Now it is time to apply commonsense revolution and it is about your lives. It is about your education, your jobs and about the security of this country. We stay together since independence and we will remain together. Any affecting any section of this country affects all of us.

“I will come back. This is just the endorsement of Governor Ahmed; that he will be re-elected by the grace of God with the support of you people here and those outside there. The unemployment situation will be conquered by this administration of APC. We have the vision for the security of the lives of our children”, he stressed.

The event was attended by Governors Adams Oshiomhole (Edo), Aliyu Wamakko (Sokoto), Rotimi Amaechi (Rivers), Rabiu Kwankwaso and Rochas Okorocha.

Former head of state, Gen. Muhammadu Buhari (retd), former vice Abubakar Atiku, the Speaker, House of Representative, Aminu Tambuwal, Senator Bukola Saraki, former governors of Kwara and Ekiti States, Alhaji Shaaba Lafiagi and Dr. Kayode Fayemi, APC’s spokesperson, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, member, Board of Trustees of the party, Alhaji Abubakar Baraje and Speaker of the Kwara State House of Assembly, Razak Atunwa, were also in attendance at the formal declaration.

    Tinubu and Company APC, though I admire the APC yet your uterrances as Party Leader revealed certain behind-the-scene support for Insugerncy in the country. Why should President Jonathan resign before you can win Election? Is that not a shame that barely four (4) months before 2015 elections you are yet to build APC strongholds across the country? Why not concentrate on costructive engagements and let Nigerians know what you think you can achieve in case you are voted in? Your APC’s surreptitious activities in what looks like BOKO HARAM as its Brainchild is posing a lot of worry to reasonable Nigerians. Stop your JONATHANPHOBIA CAMPAIGN of calumny and concentrate please.
