JUST FOR THE RECORDS…A POST FROM THE PAST(BEFORE GMB BECAME APC’S CANDIDATE)
A former Captain in the Biafran Army, Captain Leo Amadi has warned that Nigeria may experience another period of bloodshed if Goodluck Jonathan returns as president I 2015.
Amadi while speaking to newsmen in Part Hacourt yesterday affirmed that President Goodluck Jonathan was “too weak” to lead Nigeria to its promise land.
He added that what the Nigeria needed was a leader with a strong political will to deal with the elements of disintegration and economic uncertainties that are threatening the corporate existence of the country.
He said, “Jonathan is a good man. He means well for Nigeria. But Buhari is a better leader. He is not corrupt. He has the political will that is needed to tackle all the problems confronting us at this point as a nation. Buhari is the man that is capable of handling the nation at this critical moment of our lives as a country.
“I have never seen Buhari in my life. He was in the Nigerian Army while I fought for Biafra. He is a Muslim and I am a Christian. But the things he did when he was a Military ruler were amazing. For the first time as a nation we were a disciplined people and corruption was at its barest minimum. The economy was at its best and not what obtains today.
“What we need as a country is a corruption-free society. Nigeria is a very rich country. But corruption is tearing us apart and this could be attributed to bad leadership. That is why we should push for a leader who has a strong character and a strong will to rule us.
“There are strong leaders in Nigeria presently. But they are too corrupt to lead the people. This is where the likes of Buhari fit in.
“I see a bloody revolution beckoning on Nigeria if Jonathan wins the 2015 election again. The country may go into another civil war if the result of the election goes the other way. That is why Buhari should be given a second chance to rule Nigeria and rid it of corruption”, Amadi said.
Captain Leo Amadi who was in charge of a Company in the 30-month old war between the secessionist Biafra and the Nigerian Army said the only available solution to the present problems confronting the country was “a bloody revolution”. This could be likened to what obtained in Ghana under Flt Lt. Jerry Rawlings.
“Today Ghana is peaceful and many Nigerians are running there to either do business or spend their holidays. We may experience that kind of treatment here in Nigeria if we really want to be free as a people,” he added.
