Bakare, who was once a close political associate of Buhari, had few days ago said that, a “Change of guards simply means that we need fresh hands and insights into how to fix the problems of Nigeria.”
“Everyone looks tired around the President and we need a change of guards to bring competent people to handle critical issues,” he had called.
He however pointed out that, “I’m not advocating coup d’etat, God forbid; that will set us back by many years again. Military coup landed us in the trouble we are.”
The latest visit to the president, a source told the Whistler, “certainly, was not a routine visit but one aimed at clarifying that change of guard position because it’s a sensitive matter.
“A change of guard simply means coup because there’s no other way than a coup since elections to produce the next president is more than a year away.”
