Olusegun Obasanjo: Pot Calling Kettle Black

“Individuals who lecture others ought to have clean hands, perfect inner voices and washed mouths”

Following  Dr. Olusegun Obasanjo new found love called “Open letter, a medium the former president considered most to share his opinions and reservations about things as they unfold in the country.

Its should be noted that Obasanjo is not a saint but a typical example of a ‘pot calling kettle black’. However many Nigerians already took over social media to praise one of the the unarmed robbers in the country, Olusegun Obasanjo for pointing out the ills in the present administration. In as much as we appreciate the message of the messenger, we need to take note of the antecedents of the messenger. The emergency letter writer is nothing but a confused statesman.

Dr. Olusegun Obasanjo has his own contribution to corruption in the country with his fizzled endeavor to urge lawmakers support his third term as president.

Have the old pioneers improved the situation of the country? All political leaders in Nigeria are birds of same feathers and they are to be denounced by citizens. They have all missed the mark regarding desires. The present problems in Nigeria are not created over night, pertinent issues affecting the country have dependably been disregarded by the leaders in the office. If Dr. Obasanjo and others have done what should have been done during their administrations, he can then be praised for his condemnation against the present government.

It is also disheartening that Obasanjo Coalition group is being facilitated by former Governor of Osun State, Olagunsoye Oyinlola. Another man who did not take development in his state serious when he was Governor.

This has led to the conclusion that If Obasanjo will lecture others, he should ensure lecturing from the position that gives validity.

It is high time Nigerians took it upon themselves to condemn the bad eggs and look for a better alternative to President Muhammadu Buhari, Atiku Abubakar and other ambassadors of poverty.

We in NANCE will continue to tell the truth as it is and be the “voice of the voiceless” in the society.
