When you become the leader of the World’s most populous and diverse black nation on earth, try not to turn it into a place of confusion.
Well, former President Olusegun Obasanjo did his bit in convincing Nigerians on the current leadership.
All Nigerians seek from him is a commitment to helping this Government pull us out of our many challenges.
One thing is certain: Nigerians are tired of this present administration. This is evident as the President’s former henchmen are withdrawing their support for him.
In this regard, it caused no small furor when it was rumored that Obasanjo had warned Buhari not to seek re-election in 2019.
Obasanjo flatly denied the report saying that Buhari may contest the 2019 elections, if he so desires.
According to the former president, “My belief is that democracy allows for anybody, including President Buhari for that matter, to contest any election.
“It is the prerogative rights of Nigerians to vote or not to vote for them.
“I have not said Buhari should not contest the 2019 elections.
“I condemn in the highest manner the story and those behind it.
“And for those behind it, they are simply enemies of democracy and freedom of expression.”
The former president said he was still committed to the peace and progress of the country’s democratic development.
He assured democracy would bring relief in no distance future with patience and understanding of the country’s masses.
