Buhari is confused,we must stop him to save our democracy – Obasanjo
Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has described the government of president Muhammadu Buhari as a seemingly confused government which has gotten to the end of its tether, noting that the nation is currently being left divisively and perilously to drift.
Obasanjo stated this in a letter presented on his behalf at a one-day national summit on insecurity and killings in Nigeria convened by the Northern Elders Forum, Yoruba socio-cultural group, Afenifere, Ohanaeze Ndigbo and Pan Niger Delta Forum on Wednesday in Abuja.
Obasanjo who was represented by a former governor of Osun State, Prince Olagunsoye Oyinlola noted that president Buhari’s government has injected some undesirable elements into Nigeria’s democracy, which if ‘these elements’ are not stopped could be the death knell of democracy in Nigeria.
“When you kindly paid me a visit a couple of weeks ago, we deliberated on the danger to our democracy, our common identity, our commonality of purpose, our dream and our unity in diversity” the letter stated
“We lamented the harm that the present administration of President Muhammadu Buhari, by his action and inaction, has done and is doing to our commonwealth and our common heritage
“The obvious indication is that the government is seemingly confused and has got to the end of its tether and the nation is being left divisively and perilously to drift.
“Earlier last week, I noted in a speech some undesirable elements being allowed and being introduced to our democracy by this administration. If these are not stopped, they could be the death knell of our democracy,
“People are not ready to give up in despair and leave their fate and their present and future in the hands of inept leadership for their lives to be ruined. I see common concern across the nation irrespective of tribe, religion, language and social standing that the situation should be retrieved and the nation should be saved,” the letter added.
