What Is Tanko Yakasai Scared Of?

Presidential Advisory Council, Plot to Unseat Yar'Adua-Yakasai

Kano — A Second Republic presidential adviser, Tanko Yakasai, has described the creation of a Special Advisory Council by acting President, Goodluck Jonathan, as "furtherance of the on-p that will pave way for the Acting President to take over on substantive capacity".

But Deputy Senate President in the Second Republic, Abubakar Mamman Dan-Musa, and former governor of old Kaduna State, Lawan Kaita, held different views as they both agreed that it is a welcome development.

They believe that the development would end the political impasse that has engulfed the country in the past three months following the absence of ailing President Umaru Yar'Adua from the country.

Yakasai, who was ex-President Shehu Shagari's Adviser on National Assembly Matters, said he saw the development coming.

"I saw it right from the beginning, a move to stage a palace coup and the constitution of the 26-member committee by the Acting President is the process to actualise this plot".

The elder statesman who spoke at an interview with Daily Independent on the telephone argued that in "any organisation where you have former Defence Minister, Gen. T. Y. Danjuma, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo is there, just like you cannot separate Prof. Jerry Gana from the former President.

"I see the whole thing as a psychological warfare to prepare the ground for Jonathan to take over power as substantive president".

"Gen. Danjuma was the man who headed the Transition Committee after the election of Obasanjo. To my mind the so-called Presidential Advisory Committee appointed by Goodluck Jonathan is another Transition Committee in disguise pending when the conspiracy to remove Yar'Adua will be executed. I believe the Projects Monitoring Committee headed by Alhaji Ibrahim Bunu is a disguise to probe past activities of the Yar'Adua government."

Also, Kaita, governor of the old Kaduna State and chairman of the Action Congress (AC) Board of Trustee (BoT), said the constitution of the advisory council by Jonathan was a welcome development because it will help douse the anxiety that has engulfed the country.

Dan-Musa, in his own comment, equally welcomed the development, believing that with the calibre of people in the council, the country will witness a positive change.

According to him, it is a clear departure from the PDP tradition of government of exclusion that has heightened tension in the country.

Such rantings from all those who have been in positions and did nothing to move this nation forward are better ignored. Hasn't a cocktail of terminal diseases overthrown Yar Adua already irrespective of the games Turai and her clique are playing?

@Beaf,

Do not get too upset. Somebody must have his say. There is no need.

He has said his bit. Let the beat go on. That is my attitude.

Tanko Yakasai has taken this pro-Yar'Adua cabal battle to ridiculous heights.

[list]

[li]He even resigned from Arewa Consultative Forum, because he feels they are too soft on the matter[/li]

[li]He is not a member of PDP or any party[/li]

[li]He is the foremost pusher of the so called "Northern interest", yet is not a politician[/li]

[li]Now he has come up with a hare-brained scheme on how Jonathans advisory committees are a plot to overthrow Yar'Adua[/li]

[/list]

This man is paranoid!

Has he stolen something? Is he guilty of something? Is he simply afflicted with madness that is yet to be diagnosed?
