The Buhari Campaign Organisation, BCO has cautioned President Jonathan over the withdrawal of the security detail of the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Rt. Hon. Aminu Tambuwal, in a statement issued by the Buhari Campaign Organisation (BCO) and signed by, Comrade Osita Okechukwu, said: “The Buhari Campaign Organisation pleads with President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan, GCFR, to use his good offices as the C-in-C to protect and guarantee the security of Rt. Hon. Aminu Tambuwal, the Speaker of House of Representatives.”
“We are making this passionate appeal following the less than elegant manner his security details were withdrawn by the Inspector General of Police, and exposing him to danger. It is our candid view that Hon. Tambuwal as of today remains the valid Speaker of the House of Representatives of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. If this is the case, he should enjoy all the privileges and perquisites of the office.”
” We opine that the greatest disservice to our fledgling democracy will be when we deliberately expose our public officers to harm’s way and when the executive fragrantly invades other arms of government in utter violation of the doctrine of separation of powers.”
Reminding Mr. President of the statement he made to Nigerians to oversee free and fair elections, he said; “If this promise is genuine, then The Buhari Campaign Organisation is compelled to remind you that election is a process,” the statement said..
Adding further it said: “If you agree with us that election is a process, then intruding in the affairs of a legislative house which has on its own accord adjourned its sitting, will amount to rigging the 2015 general elections via the back door.
” From all indications it seems Hon. Tambuwal is being hunted for defecting to our great party, the All Progressives Congress (APC). Assuming this is the case, then we appeal that due process and rule of law should be strictly adhered to in the collective interest of our dear nation.
“The Buhari Campaign Organisation would be very sad to witness the ugly and sordid tale of our recent past when Harry Marshal, Rt. Hon. Chuba Okadigbo, Chief Bola Ige and a host of others died in controversial circumstances, and up till date, their killers have not been found.”
