Let’s Rescue Nigeria From APC’s Maladministration – Obasanjo


Former President Olusegun Obasanjo on Monday appealed to Yoruba leaders to rescue Nigeria from the disaster and maladministration of the All Progressives Congress (APC), saying the South-west leaders need  to close ranks and rescue the nation from imminent collapse

“Our priority is now one. If we do not join hands to repair this country now, it will collapse and this could be disastrous,” he warned.

Speaking when he paid a courtesy visit to the Leader of the Afenifere, Pa Reuben Fasoranti in Akure, Ondo State, the former president recalled that because he refused to join the Southwest-dominated Afenifere and Alliance (AD) in 1999, his fellow Yoruba people refused to vote for him.

“I remember visiting Pa Abraham Adesanya thrice in Lagos before the 1999 election and I was asked to join Afenifere and Alliance for Democracy then, but I told them that AD was a cul-de-sac. Pa Abraham told me that if I joined, things would change; but I refused to join them. I went back the second time, but they refused to work for my emergence.

“I went there again the third time, but Afenifere maintained their stand. They refused to vote for me; but I secured my votes outside Yorubaland, though they supported me in 2003 for my re-election.”
Responding, Pa Fasoranti told Obasanjo: “We want to encourage you in your struggle to make Nigeria the best, said Afenifere leader. You are fearless and that is one of the traits of a good leader. We have been watching you; and your dreams of a better Nigeria shall be realized.

“Nigerians are at a crossroads; we are tired of the killings, kidnapping going on across the country and the President is mute about it.

“We are in full support of all the letters written by Obasanjo to President Muhammadu Buhari on the state of the nation. We are dissatisfied with the state of affairs in the country. The country is not being run properly.

“Nothing is being done properly in this country presently. Look at the killings in the North. The President is very silent about it.”
