2019: “What Will Happen If Buhari Wins” – Agbakoba
Olisa Agbakoba, a former President of Nigerian Bar Association, NBA, has described all the state governors as thieves.
The human rights lawyer also claimed that voting President Muhammadu Buhari back into office in 2019 will eclipse Nigeria. He said there was no future for Nigeria, adding that the country only exists on paper.
In an interview published on Vanguard, the lawyer who turned 65 recently, said the Atiku Abubakar may not bring solutions Nigerians crave for but has to be given the chance. Agbakoba said,
“I have been doing this for 40 years. The latter part, that is, the last 10 years, has been a downward spiral because the Nigerian state has disintegrated. Nigeria doesn’t exist except on paper.
“The disconnect lies with the fact that the youth themselves are trapped in poverty. They are trapped in unemployment, so there is no way they can see.
“Idealism requires a certain sense of purpose but if the youths we speak of are busy drinking and smoking, then, of course, they can’t be useful. And that is exactly what the politicians are capitalizing on.
“As the leader of the Third Force Movement and the political process, I was initially convinced that change will be seen in 2019 as a result of the new small parties which are very strong on the social media.
“Like the ones headed by Durotoye and Sowore. But they can’t even talk to themselves. They tried and they failed.
“I hope that people would understand that voting for Buhari would eclipse Nigeria. You judge a man by the four years he has ruled. Atiku has not been tried.
“A lot of things have been said about him, but I would rather vote for him than for Buhari although my first preference is to go for this basket of Third Force political parties and, hopefully, we can get the house in order.
“You paint a picture of hopelessness for this country. Why? I am happy to shock you. God did not say he will fix Nigeria.
“We have the free will to fix our country. We are not allowing our God the opportunity to help us to fix things.
“Nigeria is one of the world’s most religious countries but we are spiritually bankrupt. Which governor does not invoke God or Allah?
“They all do it but they are all thieves. Let them first declare that their security votes will no longer be used.
“We will be looking at trillions of Naira. I don’t know where you have been but the reality is that Nigeria is in such a bad state. In the index of failed states, Nigeria is at a position described as low-grade civil war.
“Most of the states are unsafe. The police are helpless, the institutions are in a bad state. Despite all these, in Abuja, the politicians are enjoying.”
