”I was in my house when I got a call. I started the Save Nigeria Group so that Nigeria will not be ruined. I don’t have a personal relationship with (Goodluck) Jonathan or (Umaru) Yar’Adua, God showed me a vision then I started coming out to say things must be done right then people like Prof Wole Soyinka, General Akinrinade joined me and other prominent people joined us.
”We came out because we wanted to save Nigeria from denigrating, to look for those who are better than us abroad and even here in Nigeria so we can sit and have deliberations as to how it would get better.
“That’s what I was doing, then Buhari saw me and said this man walking the streets seeking a means to make this country better with lots of support, must be someone we can embrace.
”We also wanted to know the plans he had for Nigeria and you know we had supporters and we didn’t want him to go astray, we met in Kaduna. I had planned to do a lot of good things for Nigeria but when (Obafemi) Awolowo led the first time and couldn’t succeed the second time and some people said the good person will not win, I left them to continue their politics, God has called me to my own ministry.
“Now, everyone felt that someone who was once a senior officer in the military, once he gets there, the corrupt politicians will disappear but rather than that, it became worse.
“The country’s security architecture even worsened (such) that we cannot sleep with two eyes closed. It’s so bad but God is not asleep. Some of my friends do criticise me that I was one of Buhari’s supporters and I had to tell them that I openly supported this man in 2011 but I am not saying I’m not seeing him again. He is someone that I visit sometimes and advise him on what to do and he will listen but once I leave, there is nothing to show for it.
”Later, I started staying back in my house but I have time to pray and plead for mercy. God himself led Prophet Samuel to anoint Saul, he didn’t go to meet Saul himself, God told him that Saul was chosen and when Saul disobeyed, God took the position from him.
“No one has ever seen the end of the world. It seems this government has gone overboard, we can only pray for it. May God have mercy on us.”
