#2015: Voting Buhari Will Return Nigeria To Quasi-Military Dictatorship – Muazu



Ahead of the 2015 presidential election, national
chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Alhaji
Adamu Muazu, has warned that Nigeria will return to
what he called, combative presidency, if Nigerians
decide to vote for the presidential candidate of the All
Progressives Congress, APC, General Muhammadu
Buhari (rtd).
The PDP national chairman said that with his military
background, Buhari cannot operate in a free society as
obtained at the moment.
According to Muazu, the type of President Nigerians
and Nigeria deserve at the moment has to be one that
would further drive home the dividends of democracy
and use dialogue and kind words to heal the wounds of
the nation.
In statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Tony Amadi,
the PDP national chairman said, “There are many
reasons why Nigeria must not return to a quasi-military
dictatorship led by a war lord whose democratic
credentials are suspect.
“It is also important to know that the power of the
President is awesome and if you give it to a man who is
not coolheaded leader like President Jonathan, he will
certainly throw the country into chaos at any time”.
Hailing President Goodluck Jonathan, Muazu said, he
“is a tested and trusted democrat who is well
experienced in running democratically elected
government having been elected as a Deputy Governor,
Governor, Vice President and now President of the
Federal Republic of Nigeria.
“General Buhari is the product of military dictatorship
that cannot operate in a free country, he is unlike
President Jonathan who at all times favours dialogue
and persuasion which are the hallmark of democratic
“We don’t want a combative presidency, which would
be busy witch-hunting perceived enemies for trumped
charges, then jail them for 200 years. If you read his
acceptance speech you will note the language
employed show what direction his government will
“The choice before Nigerians in 2015 is quite clear. Do
you want a transforming leadership or a retrogressive
return to a quasi-military dictatorship clad in
democratic toga or do you want an environment of
human right abuses where people live in fear? Yet it is
supposed to be democratic setting.
“All the gains of the past years will be lost when
autocratic regime that General Buhari is known for
takes over power in Nigeria”, explaining that this is the
choice Nigerians will have to make in the February 2015
Presidential election.
“What is needed is a giant leap into democratic
governance and not the return of the ‘Jack boot’ era of
military in politics of the ‘kill and go’ of the past.
“A President Jonathan re-election is what Nigeria and
Nigerians need at this moment. We need a progressive
and persuasive government that would use dialogue to
heal the wounds of the nation. Nigeria and Nigerians
have passed the era of jack boot politics which belongs
to the past.
“Every nation at time need leaders that would make the
needed and necessary scrafice and this is what is what
the re-election of President Jonathan represents. All
over the world, leaders with qualities of President
Jonathan are being elected and not a drawback to
democratic governance which the APC represent”.
