Buhari Is Not An Extremist – Ex U.S. Ambassador by Abayhormy(m): 4:00pm On Feb 11, 2015
John Campbell, a former US ambassador to Nigeria, now with the Council on Foreign Relations has come to the defence of Gen mohammadu Buhari, the presidential aspirant of the APC, whom the opposition have labelled as an extremist.
According to reports on Vanguard, Cambell noted that PDP efforts to brand Buhari as an extremist devoted to Islamic law have also been successful.
The former envoy said “It is grossly unfair. I know him. He is not an extremist but these things resonate.”
Buhari, a former army general who led a military government for 20 months from December 1983, is hardly the dream candidate for many in the south, experts say.
Some southerners have an entrenched antipathy towards Muslims from the Hausa ethnic group, members of which plundered the country as military rulers through much of the 1980s and 1990s.
The PDP have harped on this as a campaign strategy, claiming the APC, Presidential Flag-bearer and former military dictator, is obviously a hard sell for his party, not only as a Muslim extremist, who treats issues on religions lines, but his diminishing, absurd and out-modeled leadership qualities that can no longer stand the test of time.

These assertions according to Vanguard are untrue. Some have argued that parties spend too much effort striving for ethno-religious balance, noting that the most popular presidential ticket since independence in 1960 — the 1993 campaign of the Social Democratic Party — contained two Muslims.
Moshood Abiola and running mate Baba Gana Kingibe were easily on track to win the polls before military ruler Ibrahim Babangida nullified the vote.
Many commentators were clamouring for popular Lagos state governor Babatunde Fashola, a Muslim, to head the APC ticket in 2015, but the party decided it needed a Hausa candidate to defeat Jonathan.
Religion has featured prominently in the 2015 election campaigns.
It would be recalled that Pastor Tunde Bakare recently criticised CAN and PFN for endorsing President Goodluck Jonathan for the 14 February presidential election at the expense of one of their own, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, the running mate to the All Progressives Congress, APC, presidential candidate, Muhammadu Buhari.

john cambell is a fool to think we will ever take him and his country serious again.

they made the highest media noise but could not do jerk when invited to help.

they refused buying our oil thinking they can crash our economy like they are attempting in russia.

they refused to sell us arms citing human rights abuse but are sending arms and even ground troops into syria

they are arming rebels in Ukraine and Syria but are talking crap.

i and other futuristic minded people will be expecting more of your nonsense in the coming days as the news of our success against boko haram continue pouring in.


abeg go drink kunu we now know our friends and we will be choosing our friends from hence forte and you dogs will not make the list

lookingforjob:
[b]It is sad to see many anti-progressives call Buhari names because of his tribal accent. Igbo's , Yoruba and Hausa's all have various ways of speaking and pronunciation due to our mother tongue. When i watched father Mbaka's video, his accent was obvious when he pronounced OIL as OYEL but does that makes him an illiterate? General Buhari reads, writes and gives speeches in English, He had a lauded and excellent interview on Aljazeera, Channels, eta'l but the hatred by some Nigerians will never let them see the fact that this is the only man who can deliver the change the common man crave for.


The most supporters of this present administration are the Igbo's. They see this as an opportunity for them to avenge what was done to them during the civil war. They never blamed Ojukwu who started a suicide mission and ran to ivory coast leaving them to their fate. This is why they will never see anything good in Buhari even if GEJ does nothing, they are contented.

THEY ARE HAPPY THE ELECTION WAS POSTPONED. THEY ARE SO EASY TO DECEIVE. GEJ fooled the igbos with Azikwe and promise of a bridge that's still on paper. They see GEJ as the closest they can get to aso rock. voting him is their way of flexing their political muscle but we shall put them to shame.

Had APC presented Fashola, Atiku or Kwankwaso , they will still find reasons to vote for GEJ and label Apc candidates bad. This hate is not about buhari, it's the way they feel they can get revenge for refusing to allow them form their Biafran territory. The Igbos believe another 4 years of GEJ presidency might bring about the end of Nigeria. Their selfish motive is to establish Biafra. They call Yoruba's slave to the North and all sort of names. They are a petty tribe. Its unfortunate the disunity of this country originates from their region.
They call for disintegration of the country but you will find them in every parts of the country selling fake drugs and fake goods produced in aba. They can't stay in their eastern region yet they want biafra. they even claim to own Lagos and its no mans land. Let's assume the country was divided today, will lagos be in the biafran map empty chest beaters. no wonder you find their people on death row all over Asia due to drug trafficking. instead of voting for a competent government, they prefer to suffer and resort to crimes for living. they are sadists, they travel home on 31/12 and return back on 02/01 and still hate such land that host their businesses.

In 2011, we all saw GEJ as a messiah and we voted him en-masse irrespective of his tribe and religion. We thought he would deliver us from years of misrule due to his humble look and name GOODLUCK. Nigerians did not vote PDP but GEJ. Then Yoruba's were not tagged slaves for trooping out to vote for him en-masse.

They said APC and Buhari promised to make Nigeria ungovernable. My question is why can't these people be arrested if the statements tagged to them were true GEJ is the commander in chief of all forces in Nigeria and it baffles me how a civilian in Buhari can make his government ungovernable while he sits and watch without taking actions. Isn't that a high level of incompetence?

Good luck Jonathan is the worst president we ever had in this country. The misfortunes of his administrations exceeds the so called transformations. I urge everyone to vote wisely


##March4Buhari cool cool cool[/b]

poor boy, while your mates are creating jobs you are perpetually looking for job so much that its now your username. the people promoting buhari are the real reason he will not win this election because they are all (including Obj)waste products of PDP.

Buhari knows he or any other candidate can not win the presidency without the support of the igbos hence his new attire is an Ibo traditional attire. who is he fooling, since when did that start. see all his pics across the country including his office, its the Ibo attire he is now wearing and you are here causing more trouble for him.

better watch your word before your next candidate face the same challenge
he has been told the truth about Nigeria population and those calling the shots so wake up my young man and smell the coffee

kingibe and Abiola are not extremists and do not practice the sharia type is Islam . those two are also educated and have good career records to their names.

comparing Abiola and Buhari is even an insult to the late philanthropist as their is not yardstick for such except am not seeing but would like to
