Obasanjo writes another open letter to Buhari

Group Warns Obasanjo, Jonathan Against Attacking Buhari

A group of Nigerians have warned two of Nigeria’s former presidents, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo and Dr. Goodluck Jonathan against attacking the President Muhammadu Buhari administration.

The group, identified as Concerned Nigerians said both former leaders had their opportunities to put Nigeria on the right track but failed during their time.

It, therefore, urged them not to be judgmental in their assessment of the Buhari administration so as not to further plunge the country into more problems.

Naija News understands the group made its position known in an open letter signed by Rev Musa Fomson and Prince Raymond Enero, Convener and Secretary respectively.

The letter accused Chief Obasanjo and Dr. Jonathan of ganging up against the current administration of President Buhari.

Their letter reads: “We have observed that you often plant landmines directly or indirectly on the path of the incumbent Presidency through inciting and derogatory public comments. It is becoming unbearable for the rest of us to bear and we thought it wise to let you know.”

“Both of you had the golden opportunity to lead Nigeria, and in Chief Obasanjo’s case even twice. But we did not see any significant impact on the prosperity or fortunes of our country. So, we cannot discern why both of you should decide to gang-up either overtly or clandestinely to ensure that President Buhari is not allowed to also use his wisdom in the leadership of this great country and be held accountable for his actions or inactions?

“Had you remembered to transform your great vision or ideas when you held the office of President of Nigeria, this illusory and caustic thinking that outside of the same office, you have better ideas on how to move Nigeria forward would not suffice at the moment.

“It means you never moved Nigeria to any level of development or prosperity despite the enormous resources at your disposal. To begin to think that out of office your policies and programs are better or the incumbent is so wrong is not only disingenuous, and distractive, but also inherently a faulty inclination which should not be aligned with former leaders of any nation.

“We wish to remind both of you of consciously pulling Nigeria back while in Aso Rock either by acts of omission, negligence or inactions. If you were genuine leaders, with any modicum of character worth the names you answer or flaunt anywhere today, your betrayal of Nigeria would have shut up permanently and silently watch President Buhari do the things you could not do for us as a people and a nation.

“Your Excellencies, again, permit us to remind of a few things you did to drag this country to the Golgotha. And we will start with Obasanjo, the self-acclaimed father of Nigeria, professional letter-writer, an elder statesman who neither respects his age nor utterances, the apostle of hate speeches and irremediably corrupt leader.

“Therefore, Your Excellencies, your atrocities or sins on Nigeria are too many to be exhausted. But let it be known to you that we are aware that the reason both of you have reunited today is to scout for ways to destroy Nigeria. And this plot is now well known to the citizens and the people of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.”
