ABEOKUTA/Nigeria: Former President Olusegun Obasanjo again, has lampooned President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration, describing it as an incompetent, ineffective and non-performing government.
Obasanjo, who reiterated his earlier declaration that the All Progressives Congress, APC, and Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, cannot take the nation to the Promised Land, urged Nigerians not to be deceived by the reforms promised by the APC or accept the recent apology tendered by the PDP.
The former president spoke at Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library, OOPL, Abeokuta, while receiving a joint delegation of Nigeria Young Professionals Forum, NYPF, and New Nigeria 2019.
Obasanjo said: “What those I call power addicts would want to do is to divide you based on gender, age, tribe, religion and region. You have one commonality, the interest of Nigeria and it doesn’t matter where you come from. We had that interest.
“The truth is this: When you have an ineffective and incompetent government, we are all victims. And don’t let anybody deceive you. Those of you who are in business, your business could have been better today if we have a competent and effective and performing government.
“As I said, stop giving excuses; we met challenges. If there are no challenges, then we wouldn’t need you to come. You came in because you know there are challenges and then giving us excuse that you have many challenges, that is why you haven’t achieved results. And then you still want to go for second term.
