Nwobosi, who was one of the Officers that truncated the nation’s First Republic, in the January 15, 1966 coup, said that President Muhammadu Buhari is sleeping on the wheels.
He further warned that the planned settlement of Fulani herdsmen across the country, otherwise known as RUGA, would surely set Nigeria ablaze, or bring it to its knees.
“The thing is that they said that if you do not learn from the history of war of the past; something will repeat itself.”
“That thing they said would repeat itself, is what is about to happen now. The latest is with this RUGA, which would surely set Nigeria ablaze or bring it to its knees.
“If it is true that he did not know about it; then he must be asleep on the wheels, if not, I would think that heads should have started rolling, because this RUGA programme has given him such a bad name.
“It is not easy to wipe it off, and as if he is not attempting to learn any lesson; the fact that RUGA is just about dying down, and they have started this one they said is electronic registration of illegal aliens.
“I do not think that one has come out in the Media as RUGA; not too many people know about it. We are still talking about what was done, and even more dangerous steps were being taken.
“I really do not know, because Buhari had been really very eager to go back to the seat after his Military administration. He did everything; and there were different opinions as to why he continued trying.
“Some said; those who wanted to use him to achieve their aim, were so dogged that even if he was tired or not ready to risk it, they were pushing him.
“Whichever of them, it is not good for the country. You know, sometimes when Nnamdi Kanu talks about Jibril from Sudan, I try to think whether there is some truth in it; after a while, I said no, if it were Jibril, he would have betrayed certain things”, Col. Nwobosi said.
