Why Nigeria's Ex-Military Generals want Buhari out of Aso Rock

A member of the National Executive Committee, NEC, of the Arewa Consultative Forum, ACF, Alhaji Mohammed Abdulrahman, has disclosed that some ex-military officers and politicians are behind the reformation ongoing in the defunct Social Democratic Party, SDP, with the aim of turning it into  an organized and effective political force ahead of the 2019 elections to deal with President Muhammadu Buhari.

 Mohammed said that President Buhari has become bereft ideas on how to move nation forward and was being afflicted by the poverty of political wisdom.

Mohammed told Sun that three Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, stalwarts have already signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the SDP.

He further disclosed that all the retired soldiers in Nigeria were the people backing the SDP.

He said, "They are getting ready. If 2019 proves to be a herdsman issue and a Buhari power confrontation… all the former soldiers will set up a group that will deal with Buhari and every other person in Nigeria that is creating problem. So, they should not just look at SDP simply.

"I think Buhari may have the honour to be president of Nigeria, but I think he is very bereft of political wisdom, a man lacking, very lacking…the poverty of political wisdom is afflicting him.

"He is suffering from the poverty of political wisdom. That is the simplest I can put it and I think Nigerians will understand this."
