Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has again attacked the Federal Government, stating that the President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration is incompetent and incapable of addressing the killings and poverty in the country. He argued that the administration is confused and has reached the end of its tether while the nation is being left perilously to drift.
Instead of proffering solutions, the former leader said the government has been wringing its hands and giving one unacceptable justification after the other.
Obasanjo said this in a letter read 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.
The ex-President, who was represented by a former governor of Osun State, Prince Olagunsoye Oyinlola, noted that the actions and inaction of President Buhari have further divided Nigeria along religious and regional lines.
The elder statesman, however, expressed hope that in spite of the unfortunate situation created by the government, Nigerians are determined to save and retrieve the country from Buhari’s government. The former President admonished the elders to continue with the dialogue which he said is necessary to clear misunderstandings.
