The former military head of state and one time president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria has likened what is happening under Buhari’s administration to what was witnessed under the regime of Gen Sani Abacha in many ways.
Obasanjo recalled how Abacha forcefully made his way to power through maiming,torture and ruthless killing. He feels President Buhari is threading the same path.
He adds that results are already being awarded to the incumbent President’s party and as such votes will not count in view of the much anticipated 2019 general election and condemns Buhari’s refusal to sign the revised Electoral Reform Bill into law.
He mentioned the issue of security and the height of violence that would be unleashed which would abrupt the success of the election of which a rerun would be resorted to as seen in the last Osun State gubernatorial election.
He further states that people are watching and calls on democrats all over the world watch out as events unfold in the current administration. So as to prevent “impunity and total disregard of pleas”.
He says Buhari has “intimidated and harassed the private sector,attacked the National Assembly and noe unconstitutionally and recklessly attacked and intimated the Judiciary to cow them to submission”.
He stressed how he sees Buhari to have abused his power and “derailed our fledgling democracy”. And how he has used the EFCC,Police and Code of Conduct Tribunal to deal with those he presumes to be enemies.
It is on this note, the concerned stateman calls out on people to turn to their God and believes He would answer and deliver our country out of the mess she has found herself.
