Another letter: OBJ attacks Buhari again
Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has again attacked President Muhammadu Buhari, describing his administration as incompetent and incapable of addressing insecurity and poverty grinding the nation.
He stated this in a letter read at a summit organosed by the Northern Elder Forum, the Afenifere, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, and the Pan Niger Delta Forum on Wednesday in Abuja.
In the letter read by former Gov. Olagunsoye Oyinlola, who respresented him, Obasanjo said the Buhari administration is confused, and has left the nation to drift.
Addressing NEF’s Chairman, Prof. Ango Abdullahi, the former president recalled their recent discussion in Abeokuta about Nigeria’s democracy under Buhari.
“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.”
H said the nation had never been so divided along religious and regional lines as being witnessed today.
“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,” he said.
He, however, believes that in spite of the unfortunate situation created by the government, his consultations with people had given him hope.
“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,” he stated.
Obasanjo has been writing biting letters directly or indirectly to Buhari since the president refused to take his advice to not run in the 2019 presidential election.
