"Buhari Did Not Overthrow My Govt." – Shagari



Apparently in reaction to allegation leveled against Maj. Gen. Muhammadu Buhari, the presidential flag-bearer of opposition All Progressives Congress, APC; that he truncated democracy, by overthrowing former President Shehu Shagari’s democratic government in 1983 and he want to be elected under the same democracy he truncated 32 years ago, Shagari was quoted to have reacted thus;
“Buhari did not overthrow my government, its was when those boys that overthrew our government were looking for someone with integrity, honesty and fairness to be the head of their government that was when Major Gen. Muhammadu Buhari’s name came in”
“It was Gen D.Y Bali that mentioned his name, and all of them agreed, Gen Tunde Idiagbon was asked to announce his name when he “Buhari” was not even there, I thought he was in India for a course”
Shagari explained that those who overthrew his government were, Major General Tunde Idiagbon, major general Ibrahim Babangida, major general Tunde Ogbeha, Air-commondor Augustus Aikhomu, Nureni Yusuf, Bridgadier General Sanni Abacha, DY Bali,Lt Col Oladayo Popoola.
