Why Buhari Is Not Good For Nigeria’s Presidential Seat ? Clement Ejiofor Writes



Why Buhari Is Not Good For Nigeria’s Presidential Seat? Clement Ejiofor Writes,  The 2015 presidential election in Nigeria is coming very soon. The polls are almost here. Today, December 10, 2015, is the final battle for the presidential candidates of the opposition All Progressive Congress (APC). The former Head of the State General Muhammadu Buhari (rtd) is among them.

1. Coup-plotter 

General Buhari is a coup plotter. He planned the coup that exiled a democratically-elected president. Major-General Buhari was nominated to lead Nigeria by middle and high-ranking military officers after the successful military coup d’etat that overthrew civilian President Shehu Shagari on December 31, 1983. Buhari was chosen as the Head of State and Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces, and Tunde Idiagbon was appointed the Chief of General Staff (the de facto No. 2 in the administration). Buhari justified the military’s capture of power by criticizing the civilian government as hopelessly corrupt, and his administration subsequently initiated a public campaign against indiscipline known as “War Against Indiscipline” (WAI).
