El-Rufai says FG is planning to kill Tambuwal for dumping PDP

The Deputy National Secretary of the All Progressives Congress,  Mallam Nasir el-Rufai, in Kaduna on Friday (today) said the withdrawal of the security details of the Speaker, House of Representatives, Aminu Tambuwal who recently dumped PDP for APC, was a plot by the Federal Government to eliminate him (Tambuwal).

The former Minister of the Federal Capital Territory accused President Goodluck Jonathan of masterminding the withdrawal of Tambuwal security aides, alleging that the Speaker was one of the targets of snipers being purportedly groomed by agents of the government.

"The withdrawal of Tambuwal's security aides is on the order of the President Goodluck Jonathan. The IG doesn't act that way. The president ordered the IG to order the removal. Its just the continuation of the Jonathanian impunity.

"This people have no respect for the law. They have no respect for rules. They think they are in power to abuse their control of coercive instruments of power and  we should warn them that impunity has limits. If anything happens to Tambuwal, the whole world would hold them responsible.

"He (Tambuwal) was on the list of those to be taken out by snipers. So, if anything happens to him, we know that it was done intentionally so that this will succeed.

"They should look across Burkina Faso and see what is happening when a government overstays its welcome or engages in wanton impunity. They should learn from history. I think it is very irresponsible on the part of IG and the government to do that." he said.

It would be recalled that ex-president Olusegun Obasanjo had in his open letter to President Jonathan last year alleged that agents of the Federal Government was grooming snipers that would target some prominent Nigerians.
