Founder of Igbo Youth Movement (IYM), Evang. Elliot Ugochukwu-Uko, says the negative consequences of electing President MuhammaduBuhari for another four years would be difficult for Nigeria to withstand.
Ugochukwu-Uko who is also the Secretary of Eastern Consultative Assembly (ECA), predicted that Nigeria would disintegrate and turned another Somalia if Buhari is allowed another term.
In a statement made available to The Oracle Today, Ugochukwu-Uko maintained that the President failed woefully in his first term and does not deserve to be rewarded with re-election, except to be voted out.
The statement titled “Hour of Decision,” read in part: “Four days to the presidential election, it becomes necessary to remind ourselves, why it is absolutely necessary, to vote out General Buhari on Saturday 16th February.
“General Buhari divided Nigeria, through his parochial and nepotistic worldview, turned regions against each other through his lopsided appointments, horrified the nation by his tolerance of the brigandage of the herdsmen militia and shocked his 2015 supporters with his glaring ineptitude.
“After destroying the economy, he embarked on a vengeful mission of punishing his political opponents in the guise of fighting corruption. Creating fear and despair in the land.”
The IYM leader accused the President of turning “millions of Nigerian youth into codeine and tramadol addicts,” as “his directionless policies also made betnaija gambling, the greatest preoccupation of the large army of unemployed youngsters, his mismanagement of the economy created.”
“The cabal ruling Nigeria through him, continues to destroy Nigeria, while hoping to manipulate the elections to earn a second term in order to turn this beautiful land to Somalia or Afghanistan. God forbid,” the statement added.
Urging Nigerians to vote for the Presidential candidate of the PDP, Atiku Abubakar, Ugochukwu-Uko insisted that “anyone, who votes any other candidate aside Atiku Abubakar on Saturday, will only be helping inept General Buhari to hang on to power.
“Current level of insecurity, hunger, suspicion, anger, despair, discontent, division and poverty will only intensify.
“The judiciary will be totally emasculated, the legislature, crushed and paralysed, then the journey to Afghanistan will truly begin. God forbid,” the statement further read.
He added that “we all must participate in the sacred duty of removing General Buhari on Saturday, in order to save Nigeria.”
