Buba Galadima, a Nigerian elder statesman lashes out at President Mohammadu Buhari, and the Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris for planning to rig the forth coming 2019 general elections in the favour of the president.
“The tenure of the IGP, Ibrahim Idris, will expire on January 3, 2019 but, I assure and I challenge whoever would want to disagree with me, that by that time, President Muhammadu Buhari would renew his tenure. I want to be proved wrong but the IGP’s tenure would be renewed because this is the man that can help the president rig the election.”
“I challenge the IGP to tell us his role in 2015, when he was sent by the PDP, to the North West, to stop certain things. I challenge him to debate me in a public forum for the world to see and hear.”
“This is a man who defied the orders of the president and should have outrightly been dismissed for that, but, he was condoned because they want to use him for future purposes.”
“Why did the president retain all the Service Chiefs? Are they the only people that are competent within the military or is the IGP the only competent officer in the police that the president has decided to deny other geopolitical zones who have senior members in the police hierarchy the chance to have an IGP?”
“It is simply because, when the IGP leaves, other zones would take over since they have very senior officers in the hierarchy. President Buhari is nepotistic and, for that, he would not allow other zones who have senior officers to take over and that is why he would renew the IGPs tenure.”
