The Chairman of National Action Council (NAC) Dr. Olapade Agoro on Thursday kicked against a statement credited to President Muhammadu Buhari calling on God to punish past Nigerian leaders.
Buhari, Veloxnews recalls had on Tuesday declared that only God will judge past leaders of Nigeria.
But, Agoro in a statement made available Veloxnews in Ibadan, while reacting to Buhari’s statement on Thursday, declared that if God is to punish past Nigerian leaders, President Buhari too would be among those to be punished by God.
The NAC Presidential aspirant stressed that there was no basis for Buhari to be making such a statement on May 1st, the day Nigerian workers with their international colleagues were celebrating labours’ freedom from the capitalists and the oppressors.
Agoro said, “If the Most Righteous God of justice were to mark the signs of inequity, it becomes apt to mention that President Muhammadu Buhari would be chief among those to the severely punished of all past and present Nigerian leaders if his political life misdemeanors were to be visited.
“God will no doubt punish President Muhammadu Buhari for the socio- economic unprecedented woes and blood of the innocent currently plaguing the nation and making lives not worth it for us all.
“From case of the poor and innocent Leah Suaribu now left languishing alone in the hands of Boko Haram terrorists, to the perspective of the most oppressive decree 2 promulgated by his regime in 1984, he sent two innocent Guardian Newspaper journalists Tunde Thompson and Nduka Irabo to jail terms, that of the issue of 53 suit cases stowed away from custom checks, that of the retroactive Decree 20 that got Bartholomew Owoh executed rather than being sent to serve six months jail term under the then prevailing order”.
Agoro added that, “That of the Special Military Tribunal that jailed Governor Abubakar Musa Rimi for 21 years for corruptively enriching 96 legislators of Kano State House of Assembly with 500,000 naira on March 28 1985, that of 1984 jailing of Governor Awaal Muhammed of Niger State for corrupt practices; that of jailing former Governor Ambrose Ali of Bendel State to 100 years for misappropriation of N983, 000; that of 1984 sending former Rivers State Governor Melford Okilo to 21 years jail term for holding foreign bank account contrary to prevailing laws in Nigeria; that of sending Governor Aper Aku to 21 years jail term for borrowing Naira 50000 from Benue breweries; Sending Governor Sabo Bakin Suwo to 21 years jail term for boxes full of cash found in his house among others”.
Agoro then emphasized that, “The fact that our youths and women are wallowing under of poverty and unemployment informed by economic retardation factors according to the World Bank report released on Monday 30th April 2018, God will no doubt and must punish President Muhammadu Buhari for his poor economic management of the nation’s resources”.
“And lastly God will punish President Muhammadu Buhari because never has Nigeria had a sitting President or Head of State jumping over the bother line of decency and democratic values engaging bad language to pour vituperations and evil wishes on their wives, the youths of the country and our past leaders”.
