A former Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Alhaji Abubakar Tsav has said those against the presidential bid of the former Head of State, Maj.-General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), are agents of corruption who do not mean well for the country.
Tsav in an interview with The PUNCH on Friday in Makurdi, noted that such people were either agents of corruption or were themselves corrupt and dishonest.
According to him, Buhari has been tested four times and at each of the times, he proved to be honest and incorruptible.
He said, “He was military governor but never stole. He was minister of petroleum and never stole. He was Head of State and never stole, rather he introduced discipline and orderly behavior in the society. He was head of Petroleum Trust Fund and he never stole money in the state treasury.”
The retired police boss maintained that people accused Buhari of being a religious extremist but forget the fact that his driver is a Christian.
Tsav noted that Buhari had no landed property in Abuja and Lagos or anywhere in the world unlike others who steal in Nigeria to own houses in major cities of the world.
The former CP pointed out that Nigeria was “decaying fast like a basket of tomatoes kept under the tropical sun”, arguing that under Buhari there would be sanity and orderliness in the country.
He said, “No terrorist will operate with impunity, no pastor or any religious leader would be involved in any arms deal. The level of corruption would be reduced, no person or group would own private jets to mock the ordinary people of this country.
“It is no wonder that everyone is afraid to talk in Nigeria. The love for money and position has compelled all Nigerians to remain quiet except general (Olusegun) Obasanjo and (Imo State Governor) Owelle Okorocha.”
