Tsav cautions President Jonathan on 2015 elections

Elder statesman and a former Lagos State Police Commissioner, Abubakar Tsav, has cautioned President Goodluck Jonathan not to over-stretch his 'good luck' by remaining in power beyond 2015.

He urged the President to bury his ambition of contesting in 2015 elections in the interest of the nation, adding that this will determine whether Nigeria will remain one indivisible country or not.


He said, “President Jonathan’s followers are saying there would be war if he does not win in 2015. He should save us that trouble by relinquishing his ambition in the interest of the old and young people in this country.”

Tsav reminded Jonathan of how God made him to rise from the position of deputy governor to president, even as he urged him not to run for second term in office.


Speaking with newsmen in Makurdi, the Benue State capital on Sunday, Tsav said that the nation would continue to retrogress as long as greed and corruption remain in control.

On the issue of the inconclusive Anambra governorship election, Tsav said the issues identified at the elections in Anambra state are indication that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) is incapable of conducting credible elections in the country.

He described the Attahiru Jega-led INEC as a shame to the nation.

According to him, judging from the Anambra election, the hope of conducting free, fair and credible elections in the country has been dashed.
