Alhaji Abubakar Tsav, a former Lagos State Commissioner of Police, has revealed the cause of the current insecurity in the country under the guise of herdsmen killings.
He said President Muhammadu Buhari’s fight against corruption provoked some politicians who sponsored the killer-herdsmen in a bid to mar his re-election in 2019.
Tsav told the New Telegraph: “We have a lot of people, who are involved in corruption in this country; people who have stolen too much from the country’s treasury.
“And since Buhari came in; the stealing has stopped and people who are not benefitting from the corrupt system are now afraid and they are fighting Buhari’s government through the killings by herdsmen. That is why they don’t want him to re-contest.
“People who have been living on corruption have now found out that they can no longer live on corruption again because Buhari himself is not corrupt. He is a straightforward and honest person. So, that is why they want to remove him by all means, so that we can go back to square one. They have no conscience.
“Even all over the world, other world leaders are commending Buhari for being an honest man and trying to check corruption. Within the short time he has been in power, he has discovered that a lot of money was stolen from our treasury. World leaders are happy with him, but in this country, they want him to be removed, so that they can to continue to loot the treasury. They don’t love this country; they want corruption to come back, otherwise why are they saying the man should not re-contest.
“A lot of people have being involved in corruption, but since Buhari came in, there has not been room for people to carry out corrupt activities. So, they want Buhari to go, so that they will continue their corrupt acts.”
On what should be done to stem the tide of insecurity in the country ahead of the 2019 elections, he said: “If the security agencies take the right steps right now, the elections will be very peaceful. The most important thing is to try and disarm this people. We should also address the issue of corruption because what has brought all these problems to us is corruption.”
In the last few weeks, some eminent Nigerians like former President Olusegun Obasanjo and former Military President, General Ibrahim Babangida, have asked President Buhari not run in 2019.
I Don’t Believe President Buhari Is In Charge — Wole Soyinka [VIDEO]
Nobel laureate, Professor Wole Soyinka, has said that he does not believe President Muhammadu Buhari is in charge of the country.
He made this statement in reference to the open letter written to Buhari by a retired colonel and former military administrator of Kaduna, Umar Dangiwa, over the president’s habit of appointing people from his section of the country into office.
Reacting to this in an interview on PlusTv Africa’s ‘One-On-One’ on Thursday, the playwright and political activist said the answer to the nation’s problem is decentralisation.
The renowned writer commended the former military administrator who has a tendency to hit the nail hard and go straight to the point factually without self-interest.
He said: “Umar Dangiwa is one of the really serious letter writers without self-interest and when I saw this I was appalled but I shouldn’t have been appalled in the first place. I was appalled by the silence that followed this revelation. I think those who are responsible for this criminal lopsidedness should be punished. It is not sufficient just to discuss it. It’s criminal.
“I have said this before. I don’t believe there is really anybody in charge in Aso Rock. I’m sorry to say this. I’ve been studying the trend over the past year and a half and I believe this president is not in charge of this nation, in so many aspects and directions.
“I’m convinced he’s not really and totally with it.
“It’s so serious. It is not the fact alone, we know the history of this. We know what it has caused the nation, and we know it isn’t over yet. And you say are launching an enquiry. That’s not enough. This man is not in charge.”
