Buhari Lacks The Capacity To Build The Nigeria Of Our Dreams – Obanikoro




Former Minister of State for Defence, Senator Musiliu Obanikoro has urged his supporters to do their best to ensure President Goodluck Jonathan is re-elected in 2015 as the presidential candidate of the opposition party, Gen. Muhammadu Buhari (rtd.) lacks the capacity to take Nigeria to the promise land.

“When Buhari was in his 40’s, he couldn’t govern Nigeria. Buhari was Number 1, a Muslim, Idiagbon Number 2, a Muslim, Chief of Air Staff, Chief of Army Staff, a Muslim. They were all Muslims. We don’t want that kind of Nigeria anymore. We want a Nigeria where everyone will have a sense of belonging. We have seen it all and we know that Buhari does not have the capacity to build Nigeria of our dream,” Obanikoro said.

He therefore enjoined his supporters to work hard and ensure victory in the forthcoming elections for Jonathan and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

He also asked his supporters to ensure the candidate of the PDP in Lagos, Mr. Jimi Agbaje, who he lost the PDP primaries to, wins the governorship seat in the state.

He urged them to forget the pains of the past and move on with determined zeal ensure victory for the party at all levels.

“Let me tell you one of the reasons why we initially agreed to go on. The presidential election is a must win for PDP and not just for PDP but for Nigeria. You all know I am a player at the national level, at the state level and at the local level. The presidential is a national issue and for the good of our country, President Jonathan must continue and PDP must win Lagos because it is extremely crucial to Mr. President,” he said.

Speaking further, the former minister added, “Let me also assure you today that Lagos is winnable but we have to be strategic about it. Those who fail to plan, plan to fail. At your level and at our level, all of us must sit down and put on a thinking cap. Just don’t wait for instructions anymore. Get down to work now because election is won at the polling booths and not at the state or at the federal. So I cannot defend your polling booth for you. You must devise a means by which the party must win all the elections. So we want to be hearing from you henceforth about your polling units, your wards and every other issue that are crucial for us to win.”

To ensure that they are not disenfranchised in 2015, Obanikoro urged them to collect their Permanent Voters Cards (PVCs) ahead of next year’s general elections.

“Before the end of next week, we shall create a call centre that will be manned by people from different ethnic groups to take your calls and complaints. Go and get your Permanent Voters Card and be prepared. No one lives in the past and succeed. The past is gone. Let us confront the future and to have a successful one, we must work for it,” he said.
