A former President of Nigerian Senate, Dr. Iyorchia Ayu, has warned Nigerians against voting president Muhammadu Buhari into power in 2019.
Ayu noted that Buhari winning second term will consume the national leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Bola Tinubu and break-up the country.
The ex-Senate President, yesterday told The Sun: “I am not a member of APC. At a point when Obasanjo was destabilizing the PDP which I was a founding member, a number of us left.
“We joined hands with Tinubu to form Action Congress (AC). We were developing that party with him until it became Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN).
“I talked to my friend Tinubu, we are very close. I told him that we need to develop the progressive party in Nigeria. He didn’t believe me, he preferred to go and link up with the most right-wing group in the North. And that right-wing group was headed by Buhari in the name of CPC.
“At that point, I left the party and came back to the PDP. I have known Gen. Buhari when he was the military Head of State, I was a university lecturer then. I know the tyranny that was visited on this country.
“I refused to be part of that team. I warned Tinubu that he will regret bringing Buhari and imposing him on the party. I believe he is regretting silently without telling Nigerians. But more is to be expected.
“I am sorry to say that if Buhari is re-elected in 2019, it will not only consume Tinubu, it will consume so many other people. It may even lead to the disintegration of Nigeria,” he said.
