Elder statesman, Tanko Yakasai, has said President Muhammadu Buhari’s die-hard supporters almost killed him for calling out his ineptitude.
Yakasai said he had not shied away from pointing out Buhari’s lack of capacity to govern even before he was elected into office in 2015.
Yakasai made this known in an interview with Vanguard in Abuja on Sunday.
Yakasai, who counted himself lucky to still be alive, explained that when he raised the alarm, those who were supporters of the then candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, almost went for his head.
He declared: “When Buhari came in 2014/ 2015, northerners and southerners came together to say he was the one. Remember, I came out and cautioned Nigerians,
“I said clearly that Buhari was not competent, that he has no capacity to govern. I was lucky at the time otherwise; I would have been killed by Buhari die-hards.
“Now, by divine intervention, a lot of people now are wiser, a lot of people who believed then that Buhari was the right person at that time; now know that he is not.”
