100 Jonathans Cannot Be Compared To Buhari – Tam David-west by kaze4blues(m): 2:33am On Jun 17, 2013
Former Petroleum Minister, Prof. Tam David-West, says the only reason Governor Rotimi Amaechi of Rivers State is being harrassed by some political forces is his refusal to be anybody’s ‘Yes man’.
Prof. David-West, speaking on a radio programme in Port Harcourt, also asked President Goodluck Jonathan to be wary of the Ijaw leader, Chief Edwin Clark and leader of the Niger Delta People’s Volunteer Force (NDPVF), Alhaji Mujaheed Dokubo-Asari. He said neither of them had the powers to make him win the 2015 election.
David-West showered encomiums on General Muhammadu Buhari, who he said stood tall when compared to President Jonathan in terms of achievement as Nigeria’s leader.
According to the former minister, Amaechi has had to fight alleged injustice of ceding oil wells belonging to Rivers State in the Kalabari axis to President Jonathan’s Bayelsa State.
This, he said has not gone down well with some people.
He added: “I am not a politician. No amount of money in the world can make me to change my mind. I support causes, not persons. What has Amaechi done wrong? He has not done anything wrong. Professional praise singers are making millions of naira through the crisis.


“Those who said Amaechi has received N2.4 trillion since he became Rivers governor, without commensurate projects on the ground, are talking rubbish. The Kalabari people fighting Amaechi are not serious. They are not more Kalabari than me. Amaechi has not disappointed Kalabari people.”
Pressed to assess President Jonathan’s achievements, he said: “I am an unapologetic critic of President Jonathan. I do not support you because you are an Ijaw person, from the South South zone or a Niger Deltan. I support performers. Twenty four per cent of Jonathan’s votes came from the South South.
“It is completely illogical to say Jonathan must be re-elected in 2015, because he is a South South man. Jonathan is not a South South President, but the President of Nigeria.
“Clark, Dokubo-Asari and others cannot save Jonathan in 2015. In an interview in a national newspaper on June 15, 2012, Dokubo-Asari declared that Jonathan would not go beyond 2015 as President. Why is he speaking from both sides of his mouth?
“You cannot compare one hundred Jonathans to one Buhari. I will always give my support to Buhari. He is the finest man I have ever known. Negative things that they say about him are not factual. I will continue to work for Buhari.
“Corruption is the bane of Nigeria. Buhari is against corruption. Buhari is not corrupt. He is very clean and disciplined. Election rigging is worse than armed robbery. Buhari wants free, fair and credible elections in Nigeria.”

Prof. West and Asari are related but the two men are always in a fued, years back West had sued Asari to court that he (Asari) had planned to kill him. So its no surprise why West would want to stand against anything Asari. Now talking about integrity, is this not the same West who after divorcing his wife, asked her to return everything he ever bought for her? He personally went to her place to pick up a gas cooker he bought. My 2 cent on both men, am just concerned abt GEJ

Old age is obviously catching up on this man Who doesn't even have any rightful place back home.
Tam David West does not have an iota of
influence in River state politics. Sorry, if Buhari or APC is counting on him.

Ameachi is now scampering for supporters from all corners to feature in PH FM Radio to drum up support for him. That is good. We shall see how this show of supremacy ends.

The only Petroleum Minister who is not corrupt because he served under Buhari's regime. Can you ever compare Tam David West to Dan Etete and Dieziani Allison Madueke who are products of corrupt Government? The man has indeed spoken well! Buhari remains the best President Nigeria had and will ever have.

SAI BUHARI 2015! cool cool

Keep deceiving yourself. I am a southerner and we will ensure Buhari win in the south in 2015.

Can you name those northerners speaking against Buhari?

And also tell us those northerners praising GEJ.

David-West is right even if some on this forum are too childishly partisan to note the point he makes. For example, Nigeria, in today's ultra-competitive universe where we cannot afford to lose grounds, should be beyond entertaining a clueless and corrupt President who receives direct transformational recommendations he should implement immediately.

Yet, rather than seeing GEJ swing into action, the world watches appalled as our President arrogantly discredit and then ignore those recommendations pivotal to the progress of Nigeria. We should all be sophisticated enough to reject such a character for the sake of national progress. That many cannot even minimally see the wrongs of GEJ, and even prefer to insult the likes of David-West, is explanation enough for where we are today because Nigerian leaders do not come from Mars. They are products of our society.

Those who fear Buhari in power come 2015 are mostly the currupt or those who have currupt friends or relatives in power or those who indirectly benefit from the present system where curruption is the order of the day.

Others are those who fear for what that man will do to them when he gets to power knowing fully well how much evil they have inflicted on Nigerians, hence they will do everything possible to keep him off Aso Rock.

We need JACK BAUER in this country. President Charles Logan...hmmm

you are 100% correct. For example, if it is President Buhari that recieved the recommenation we stop selling our crude through traders, because doing so abets monumental theft and corruption against Nigeria, then the practice will stop even before Ribadu has finished talking !!!! Not so with the man currently occupying Aso rock who is a crude joke and the subject of international ridicule. The entire world knows that GEJ loves corrupt Nigerians and those who are corrupt love him dearly also. whereas most of them will literally run away faster than Usain Bolt if Buhari became President.

I am not surprised with the way people condemn Buhari, its because many of you were not born at the time he ruled so you can criticize him based on what you're told. Only Buhari can fight corruption in this country because that is what is killing this country fast, he has done it before he'll do it again. People are given JOB when they apply for based on their qualification and records not where they come from or the language they speak. Its time y'all should wake up and stop this useless abuses on a true Nigerian, the person of Buhari.

I am from south south, let us call a spade a spade. 1 Buhari is far better than 100 Jonathan.

"Buhari was one-time Minister of Petroleum and we have good records of his tenure as minister, {over $2.8Billion was stolen by Buhari and seen in his UK Bank}.

Secondly, he also presided over the Petroleum Trust Fund ( PTF) which records we also have, {where Billions of Naira was unaccounted for and same amount given out on consultancy Companies that Buhari has interest in}.

We challenge him to come out with clean hands in those two portfolios he headed. Or, we will help him to expose his. “Records of performance during those periods. - Gen Ibrahim Babangida.

Is this a good Records? Let him clear him self.
