April 24, 2015 – Obasanjo Says Jonathan Is A Moving Train Stopped From Collapsing Nigeria, Claims Africans Happy He’s Defeated

Ex-President Olusegun Aremu Obasanjo yesterday said that African countries are excited over the outcome of the recently concluded President election in Nigeria which saw the incumbent President defeated.

Mr. Obasanjo said his checks in a number of African countries suggested they were as happy over the result of the election as majority of Nigerians are.

He referred to President Goodluck Jonathan as a moving train who was providentially stopped from collapsing Nigeria.

“I have visited six countries since the election, they are as happy about the results as we are in Nigeria. It is good not only for Nigeria, it is good for Africa and I believe it is good for the world.”

Mr. Obasanjo, who led the African Union Observation Mission to the April 2015 General Election in Sudan, spoke on Thursday at a Washington DC event.

The former president described Nigeria as a country that obsessively plays “a dangerous game of moving close to the precipice”.

He said the country came close to disintegration in the run-up to the 2015 elections but switched swiftly to the path of redemption after the polls.

“I hope we will not fall over one of these days,” he said.

    Its time for you to shut that sewage you call mouth. You are such an *****. I can see what Remi was saying in her book, and why Iyabo would have disowned you as a father if she could. Agba ofo. A lai n’itiju. Who made Jonathan?
    Olusegun Obasanjo, you are just a citizen as everyone else. You don’t own Nigeria.

    Baba Iyabo was right. Third term of president Jonathan would have destroyed the destiny, unity, and progress of our beloved nation. But it is the peak of hypocrisy for former president Obasanjo to critic his boy that helped to become vice president and eventually president of Nigeria. We all know that Baba Iyabo helped to put Jonathan’s destructive train in motion when he imposed then governor of Bayelsa state on then PDP presidential candidate Yaradua. I strongly believe that Baba Iyabo play a crucial role in Nigerian setbacks, misfortune, and our present bad situations.

    It is not biblical to say this kind of words to an old man, but Obasanjo u are **** i ever see, you are claiming to be holy now.. After you have successfully destroy Nigeria, i just hope and pray that God should use Buhari to rescue us from your deadly trap that you have put Nigerian into since 1999… That is why u said u will like to be a Nigerian in your next world, cos u know that you have looted all the Nigeria Money and no one is asking u questions, But God will ask u one day, the blood of an innocent people dieing on the road cos of bad road will ask u one day.. heartless man
