Buhari and the Nigerian constitution

Buhari’s national security team.

This team and the best are from one section of Nigeria. This is constitutionally and politically untenable.

Buhari has been here before and his tendency to match to his sectional tone was the basis for losing his military presidency in 1985.

This is the reason his successor gave for removing Buhari from office. The reason below remains true today as evidenced from his national security team.

“Regrettably, it turned out that Major-General Muhammadu Buhari was too rigid and uncompromising in his attitudes to issues of national significance. Efforts to make him understand that a diverse polity like Nigeria required recognition and appreciation of differences in both cultural and individual perceptions, only served to aggravate these attitudes.” IBB
