he Catholic Bishop of Ekiti Diocese, Most. Rev. Felix Ajakaye, has urged President Goodluck Jonathan to ensure the arrest and prosecution of former Head of State, Maj-Gen. Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), for making unguarded statements.

The bishop said this in Ado-Ekiti on Thursday in an interview with journalists.

He said the security agents ought to have arrested Buhari for threatening that there would be bloodshed in the country if the 2015 was rigged.



According to him, rather than trading words with the retired general, the Presient ought to have asked law enforcement agencies to prosecute him for threatening the peace of the nation.

The cleric said Buhari, the presidential candidate of the Congress for Progressive Change in the 2011 elections, should not be allowed to destabilise the country because he wants to rule at all costs.

He stated that the likes of Buhari had loyalists who could translate such comments into actions, saying they should not be allowed to turn the country to a theatre of war.

Ajakaye said the nation was going through a trying time, adding that such inflammatory comment could worsen the already bad security situation in the country.

He said, “Nigeria belongs to all of us and we have no other place to go and we should watch our utterances, no matter our status. We are in a very trying time and we need to be prayerful and work.

“We need to be positive and concrete in our thoughts and work our thoughts. It is unfortunate and unacceptable for a person like Maj.-Gen. Buhari to have mentioned that Nigeria would be bloody in 2015.

“I don’t know what our security agents are still waiting for. They should be decisive no matter whose ox is gored. If another person had made such a statement, they would say he was planning something against the country.

“But for making such a statement I will say that seems to be his character and we should not allow him and others to be saying that anymore, the laws are there.”

I don't know why Buhari think he can change NIGERIA now, something he wasn't able to do 29yrs ago. Honestly when will Nigerian leaders grow up?

president Good Luck is not a strong man that can lead the nation to NO where.... he's just standing in the office as a figure head. Buari should have been arrested immediately he made such a terrible statement, instead... Goodluck was laughing arround the country.... what a WAEK leader.

I think Nigerian electoral system has failed, why is’t people are talking about 2015 elections at this stage. At least the laws are there to ban whoever that is into election propaganda outside the timetable of the process ,my dear Bishop  U have done well by saying ur mind. the president should do something fast to save the life's of his country men and women… some so-called leader should know that their time is off. No matter what Buhari did, says, he will never become the president of this country again .

Buhari look like someone suffering from kwashiokor and the guy needs some money since he saw that he’s closer to the grave than ever. With his retirement from carrying gun, he believed the best way is to get back it by blood shed the way he did it the first time ,Jonathan should make him the overall principal of the almanjiri school and he’ll be able to get some money at least. What he had as PTF chairman was lost to elections and he thought he would have had the position by now and get some refunds to pay some of his debts lol.
