Ahead Of Presidential Election, Amaechi Declares Buhari Mentally Unfit For Governance, Endorses Atiku 3

The First Republic minister of Aviation and only surviving Nigerian nationalist, Chief Mbazulike Amaechi said that President Muhammadu Buhari is not in the right mental state to govern Nigeria.

Amaechi, who was one of the youngest ministers of the first republic, spoke to Journalists in his country home, Ukpor in Nnewi South local government area of Anambra state.

He endorsed the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, calling on all to reject Buhari and his party as voting for him may mean supporting the collapse of Nigeria.

The nationalist said he was speaking for other demised prominent nationalists of Nigeria, including; Nnamdi Azikiwe, Ahmadu Bello, Abubakar Tafawa Balewa, Obafemi Awolowo, Dennis Osadebay, Aminu Kanu, Herbert Macaulay, Nwafor Orizu and a host of others. He said:

“He (Buhari) has neither the health nor mental capacity to rule Nigeria. As the very last surviving nationalist, freedom fighter and minister of the first republic still alive, I feel compelled to warn those who may be plotting to plunge the country into a major crisis that may threaten the very foundation of our federation.

“To the rest of fellow Nigerians, I say brace up and defend democracy and the federation itself. There is grave danger ahead. Those who destroyed democracy in 1983 are up again to deprive you of your fundamental rights.

“They don’t understand the language of democracy. From what they are doing to judiciary and legislature, other two arms of government, you can imagine what will happen if for any error they returned to Aso Rock. I call on the international community to help and expose the evil plans of a cabal who want to perpetuate themselves in power even if they lose the election as they are bound.”

Speaking on the light opposition that previously heralded the picking of Mr Peter Obi by Alhaji Atiku Abubakar as running mate, Amaechi said the opposition were borne out of jealousy, citing that all those opposed to Obi as the vice presidential candidate were merely doing so because they had hoped and positioned themselves as the running mate of the PDP candidate.

He also berated governors, especially that of Anambra, who are opposed to the emergence of PDP in the presidential election.
