Buhari's Second Term Tenure Will Bring Succour To Nigerians - APC Chieftain

Ghana's High Commissioner To Nigeria Meets Buhari Buhari's Second Term Tenure Will Bring Succour To Nigerians - APC Chieftain

NATIONAL leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu and the pioneer interim chairman of the APC, Chief Bisi Akande are now at the State House to meet with President Muhammadu Buhari.

President Muhammadu Buhari has challenged the nation's security agencies, particularly the Police and Department of State Services (DSS), to take intelligence-gathering and sharing much more seriously.

The APC national leader and Chief Akande had stormed the Presidential Villa about three weeks ago, just few hours after former President Olusegun Obasanjo in a statement had advised President Buhari not to contest the 2019 general election for alleged abysmal performance including nepotism and ethnic bigotry.

Tinubu said this during a meeting with the Chief John Odigie-Oyegun-led National Working Committee of the party at the APC National Secretariat, in Abuja, on Wednesday.

"I don't address those shadows".

He opined: "The two former leaders (IBB and Obasanjo) were the principal agents of the present predicament bedevilling us as a country accusing them of institutionalising corruption and nepotism in Governance for their selfish interest".

"It is a free world but this freedom is not served a la carte".

"These two leaders can not show us the roadmap - because they had opportunities in the past and bungled them", he said.

He said, however, that lasting solution which will not only earn the confidence of Nigerians but also stand the test of time will be implemented. "I believe that Asiwaju Tinubu is capable of resolving the crisis rocking our party, if he is given the chance".

"We would like to add our voice to those of other well-meaning Nigerians who insist that a better alternative to open grazing should be sought rather than introducing "cattle colonies" in the country".

He described conflict resolution as part of the democratic process.

Today I presided over a meeting of the Security Council. You can't do it without resolving conflicts.

However, President Buhari later went on his twitter handle to share a snippet of what transpired behind closed doors.

"He is one of those rare beings around the country, around Africa who had experienced both worlds: he fought a battle to save Nigeria and came to politics to save Nigeria".

Buhari had earlier on met with a former military Head of State, Gen. Abdulsalami Abubakar (retd.).
