MUST YOU SERVE NIGERIA AS A PRESIDENT ONLY? IS THERE NO OTHER CAPACITY YOU CAN SERVE US EXCEPT THE PRESIDENCY?
Nollywood actor and husband of Muma Gee Prince Eke, Writes an Open Letter To General Muhammadu Buhari. In his open letter he urges Buhari, to serve Nigerians in other capacities like EFCC or NDLEA. “Sir, imagine if you take on another job like the Chairman of EFCC or ICPC or NDLEA, Nigerians actually need you to serve in one of these capacities much more than they need you in the Presidency.”
Read what he wrote:
“My letter to BUHARI,
Sir ,let us examine your service records. I consider your generation a very privileged one, indeed. In 1975 at the age of 33, you were appointed d Military Governor of d North-Eastern State, present day Borno and Yobe states. In 1976 at d age of 34 you became the Minister for Petroleum and Natural Resources.
In 1978 at d age of 36 you became d Chairman of the Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC). Today the reverse is the case. Most Nigerians at age of 35 are still unemployed and still living with parents. Many are still not married. During your time you were already Governor at this age.
“One major reason for this unfortunate turn of events is that many elders like you have refused to voluntarily handover d baton to the next generation. Life should be a relay race where one runs his race and hands over to the next. In Nigeria many elders like you have run their races and are still holding on tenaciously to d baton.
But Sir, I have an important question here for you. The question is simple, MUST YOU SERVE NIGERIA AS A PRESIDENT ONLY? IS THERE NO OTHER CAPACITY YOU CAN SERVE US EXCEPT THE PRESIDENCY?
It is very erroneous to imagine that you can only serve Nigeria only in one capacity. During the regime of late General Sani Abacha, you accepted the appointment to serve as the Chairman of the then Petroleum Trust Fund (PTF). THE general opinion was that you served faithfully in this capacity.
“Well done Sir! But you never asked Abacha 2 vacate office for you as your former subordinate in the army. Never! In fact that would have been a dangerous move, if not suicidal. Rather you served faithfully under your former junior in the army. Sir, imagine if you take on another job like the Chairman of EFCC or ICPC or NDLEA.
Nigerians actually need you to serve in one of these capacities much more than they need you in the Presidency.
“Mere mentioning your name as Chairman of EFCC would drive many corrupt men underground. But you wouldn’t . Either d Presidency or nothing. When are you going to handover to the next person? It is either you do it voluntarily or risk disgrace at d polls. God bless you sir. He wrote
