Obasanjo: No Right Thinking Nigerian Can Praise Buhari’s Administration, Nigeria Deserves A Better Leader

Ex President Obasanjo on Sunday said no right-thinking Nigerian can applaud the situation of the country under the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari.

The former ruler also asked those desirous of a better Nigeria to cooperate in charting a fresh course for the nation rather than pulling in different directions. He spoke when a former governor of Sokoto State and presidential aspirant of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Attahiru Bafarawa, visited him in Abeokuta.

Obasanjo, who maintained that Nigeria deserves better than its current leadership, said he would support whoever is genuinely interested in fixing the country in 2019. He declared that no amount of intimidation and threat would force him to abandon his clamour for a better nation.

He said:

“The situation of Nigeria today is not the one any right-thinking Nigerian should applaud. And my own strong belief is that Nigeria deserves better than we have now. And we can get better than what we have. “And so, yours is to see what you can do, that is why you are aspiring to make Nigeria better than what it is today. Nobody who loves Nigeria will not want it to better than it is today. I, definitely, have made personal sacrifices and I will make again.

“Talk of fighting in the war front and shedding of blood, or even talk of going to prison, because I believe in democracy. I went to prison for doing nothing wrong. I have also been intimidated and threatened, what would you do to intimidate somebody like me? “Whatever you are trying to do to me, people have tried to do them to me in the past and it amounted to nothing and it will amount to nothing.

Because before I act, I pray to God to guide me and I think of Nigeria first, particularly majority of Nigerians who are underprivileged, whose situation we need to improve upon. “How would I say that anyone who wants to improve the situation of Nigeria, I will not support? How would I say that anybody who does not feel satisfied with the situation of Nigeria should not be encouraged? “How would I say that anyone who believes strong-ly that Nigeria can be better than what it is and believes that it is a collective responsibility, I will not support? But there must be a leader that will lead the team and leadership is not easy.

“If we do not act together as we should act together, Nigeria will not be what it should be come 2019. Aspiration? Yes, but the objective must be clear. If the opposition starts going in different directions and pulling in different ways, Nigeria’s situation will not change. “A population of 200 million, for us to continue to complain that things are not right, we are doing this same thing like we have done before. And if we keep doing the same thing, the result will not be different. If we want a different result, we must do things differently. And I believe we can do things differently.”

    Buhari is already in history as the worst president Nigeria ever had.
    What annoys me the most are the illiterate dullard still championing for his return in 2019.

    So, Obasanjo knew all these and he did nothing while he was there to place things in places and now he is opening his stinking mouth to condemn Buhari. Who knows, this man may be one of those who are behind our predicaments in Nigeria.

    He sounds like if they cannot figure themselves out may be they can still come back for me as their candidate but he is wrong this time around. He still having the illusion of his 3rd term agenda.
