President Buhari has neither intention nor capacity to hold credible election – Reno



I write to warn the international community of a clear and present danger to democracy in Nigeria in the person of President Muhammadu Buhari, a pseudo fascist leader who is taking Nigeria as Venezuela.

While Nigeria prepares for another round of presidential elections, President Buhari has unleashed the fascist on him by taking measures to undermine democracy.



Two prominent opponents of the President have expressed interest in participating in the 2019 presidential election.

The first is the titular governor of the state of Ekiti, Ayo Fayose. Exactly one hour after Governor Fayose declared, his Commissioner of Finance and the State Accountant General were arrested on fabricated charges to paralyze the Fayose campaign.

Also, when former Vice President Atiku Abubakar looked like he might be interested in the 2019 race, the government of President Buhari on October 11, 2011, curiously accused his company, INTELS, of not adhering to a policy that goes into against a legally binding agreement between the government and INTELS and on the basis of that unilaterally revoked contract that was still in force.

Obviously, this was done to neutralize it before the presidential elections of 2019.

Interestingly, an international fugitive on INTERPOL's wanted list, Abdulrasheed Maina, was invited to return to the country by the Buhari administration (according to a press conference by his family). He was reinstated to the civil service from which he had been fired after he stole millions of dollars from the pension fund, and received a double promotion from the Buhari government.

Since the posters of Maina's governor's campaign suddenly emerged throughout northern Nigeria, it is generally suspected that the president brought him to finance his re-election campaign with his booty, especially since the president has fallen with people as Atiku Abubakar and Bola Tinubu, who financed his 2015 election.

This is even more true given the fact that the head of the public administration revealed in a leaked memo that warned the President against the act of reinstating a known criminal to the civil service, even though the President had lied to the Nigerian public that did not know that Mr. Maina had been called and readmitted.

The head of the civil service, Ms. Winifred Oyo-Ita, is now being persecuted by the Buhari administration and the President's chief of staff was caught on video trying to intimidate her for exposing the President as a liar.

Now there is a palpable fear in Nigeria about the fate of the 2011 elections. Some people fear that the unprecedented militarization and intimidation in Nigeria under Buhari would make any credible election impossible.

When he was an opposition leader, he contested the presidential elections in 2003, 2007 and 2011.

In each of those elections he was rejected by the Nigerian people, but he refused to accept the results and encouraged his followers to carry the violence through explosive rhetoric that included the threat that "the dog and the baboon they will be soaked with blood. " if he suffered the same fate.

If President Buhari could not accept the defeat as an opposition candidate and even threatened to shed blood and not recognize the government in power, how reasonable is it to hope that he can carry out credible elections and accept defeat as headline? President?

The international community should bear in mind that in preparation for his re-election in 2019, President Buhari nominated a woman, Amina Zakari, who was revealed by Junaid Mohammed, a former Buhari supporter and prominent northerner, to be her niece .

The public protest caused the President to be harmed by that decision and instead appointed the current president of the Independent National Electoral Commission, Mahmood Yakubu.

The international community should bear in mind that in the 16 years that the People's Democratic Party ruled Nigeria, there never were "inconclusive elections". However, in the two years that the Buhari administration has been in power, inconclusive elections have become the trend in several states such as Kogi, Bayelsa, Osun FCT, Imo and Nasarawa.

Therefore, I call on the international community to urgently intervene in Nigeria to avoid what may become a Venezuela-style descent towards the dictatorship and economic turmoil in Nigeria at the hands of President Muhammadu Buhari.

A man whose army killed 347 unarmed Shiite men, women, children and children because they allegedly interrupted the road trip of his army chief during his religious procession is a man capable of everything.

If democracy is allowed to fail in Nigeria, it will lead to a domino effect in West Africa and perhaps in Africa. Is the world ready for that?
