FLASHBACK: If Elected, Buhari Will Be A Disaster — Ex-us Envoy by LeoThaGreat(m): 2:24pm On Apr 28
MARCH 22, 2015
12:56 AM

Richard Grenell, a former envoy of the United States of America, has warned Nigerians not to elect former military dictator, Gen. Muhammadu Buhari (retd), of The All Progressives Congress in the March 28 Presidential election.

The former spokesman for four United States Ambassadors to the United Nations, noted that Buhari if elected will be a diaster for Nigeria and Africa, stressing that he will signal trouble for the West’s fight against ISIS and terrorism throughout the Middle East.

He urges Nigerians to re-elect President Goodluck Jonathan of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP. He made this known in an article titled, Nigeria on the brink and published on Washington Times, of Thursday, March 19, 2015.



READ FULL ARTICLE BELOW:
With the polls closed in Israel, international election observers now turn their attention to the Nigerian elections on March 28. The choice for the leader of Africa’s most populous country pits Goodluck Jonathan from the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) against Mohammadu Buhari of the All Progressives Congress (APC). The decision by the roughly 73 million registered Nigerian voters could have a profound impact on the future of Africa.

But Western foreign policy observers pre-occupied with the rise of ISIS in the Middle East should wake up to the reality unfolding in Nigeria. Opposition candidate General Buhari wants Sharia law throughout Nigeria. In fact, he wants it everywhere.

“I will continue to show openly and inside me the total commitment to the Sharia movement that is sweeping all over Nigeria,” Mr. Buhari said. “God willing, we will not stop the agitation for the total
implementation of the Sharia in the country.”

Agitation? Is this an indication that Mr. Buhari supports violence because the end goal of the terrorist attacks throughout Nigeria and Africa is an Islamic state? It is a legitimate question that should be asked by leaders of the Obama administration.

Boko Haram has pledged its allegiance and support to ISIS. The northern Nigerian based Islamic terrorist group wants Sharia law throughout Nigeria and beyond. They are also actively terrorizing Chad, Niger and Cameroon with their goal of an Islamic state.

Mr. Buhari has also spoken sympathetically about members of the terrorist group Boko Haram, has cautioned against a rush to judgement on its members and has personally been selected by the terrorist group to lead its negotiations with the Government of Nigeria.

Mr. Buhari’s election as Nigeria’s head of state would be a disaster for Africa. It would also signal trouble for the West’s fight against ISIS and terrorism throughout the Middle East.
Islamic radicals have Africa on their target list and young Nigerians are reported to be interested in ISIS’ messages. Nigeria is at a tipping point.
Tunisia, where the Arab Spring uprisings began, saw a deadly Islamic terrorist attack at a popular museum killing 23 people this week.

ISIS attacked a hospital in Libya within the last few days and Boko Haram killed 54 people with 4 suicide bombers in Nigeria last week. The West, and specifically the Obama Administration, needs to wake up to the growing problem.

The French government has been fighting ISIS in Africa for the past two years, starting in Mali but with little help from the Obama Administration. As terrorism grows in yet another region of the globe, American and Western officials should realize they are not stopping the advancements of Islamic
radicals. Al-Qaida is not dead and ISIS is not a JV team.

The recent moves by the White House against Israeli leader Benjamin Netanyahu signal a willingness by President Obama and his team to intervene in foreign elections. The sitting President Goodluck Jonathan has committed to defeating Boko Haram and overseeing a free and fair
election.

The Nigerian economy has been growing faster than South Africa’s. Imagine what Nigeria could do for Africa if it was also free of Boko Haram’s violence. The Obama Administration should be doing more to ensure Africa’s most populous country doesn’t slip away.

So true
Re: FLASHBACK: If Elected, Buhari Will Be A Disaster — Ex-us Envoy by LeoThaGreat(m): 2:28pm On Apr 28
I think this is the reason the Obama administration stationed 2 submarines off the coast of Nigeria during 2015 elections. That is: in case of large scale violence that could have happened if Major General Buhari (rtd.) had lost the election.
Also, I think Goodluck Jonathan was advised by the US to accept defeat in good faith because there were plans by some elements to cause large scale violence in Nigeria that they had imported people from all over West Africa to fight for them.

This corroborates with the statement by Abubakar Baraje which reads:
""APC invited and armed Fulani from West Africa to make Nigeria ungovernable if Buhari lost the election in 2015. After the election, the alien Fulani refused to leave. And they have been told and still being told that the entire Nigeria belongs to them. "They are the bandits you hear of today".

Bihari is the worst thing to happen to this country. What a colossal failure. What exactly is Bihari doing? He has failed in every sector of this country. He has crippled this country. Tufiakwa. What a waste of life

Heeeeeeeeeeeeeey! We are finished! Is Tinubu aware of all these? Does he really think he can realise his presidential ambition in 2023?
The plan is to escalate terrorism and banditry before 2023, so that there will be no election. Then Hubari will remain on seat like his fellow greedy African leaders with the aim of Islamizing the country.
Make they better share this country, make every region go reshare and keep resharing as they like.
