Obasanjo Wants Buhari Voted Out, Denies Being Neutral - Kehinde Akinyemi by stephanie11: 5:03pm On Dec 09, 2018
@POLITICSNGR

Ex-President, Olusegun Obasanjo has denied reports that he is not backing any particular candidate in the upcoming 2019 presidential elections, PoliticsNGR has learned.

Obasanjo, in a statement on Sunday, through his media aide, Kehinde Akinyemi, expressly stated that he wasn't in support of President Buhari.

The statement read;

"While Chief Olusegun Obasanjo is in Cairo to attend the maiden edition of the Intra-African Trade Fair (IATF), of which he is Chairman of the Advisory Council, his attention has been drawn to a report by the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) with the headline “Atiku: Obasanjo Shifts Political Gear to Neutral.”

It is disingenuous, if not malicious, for anyone to suggest that Chief Obasanjo was being neutral when he chose not to use the Owu Convention as a platform for political campaign but instead adopt a communal and familial approach in talking to members of his Owu family,” .

“For the records, and as accurately reported by some media organisations, what the former president said at the convention in Iwo was that while he would not impress any candidates on them, Nigerians should vote for credible candidates who will drive growth and development and make their lives better than it is now.” Mr. Akinyemi said.

He further explained that Obasanjo's statement did not mean neutrality stating that; “only a fool will sit on the fence or be neutral when his or her country is being destroyed with incompetence, corruption, lack of focus, insecurity, nepotism, brazen impunity and denial of the obvious.”

The former leader,who has declared his support for opposition presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, said he would not sit on the fence adding that he stands in the best interest of Nigeria.

He maintained that he would continue to speak against poor governance and nobody should manipulate his stance on the 2019 presidential election.

Any well meaning Nigerian would want Buhari voted out. Fighting corruption top Buhari's agenda, yet nobody has being jailed since the inception of his administration till now.

All we have is baptism from PDP to APC(from sinner to a saint).

Even Obasonjo with his witch hunting fought corruption than Buhari.

Rome was not built in a day. We know! In the words of zig ziglar "you can tell how high a building is going to be by how deep the dig the foundation ".

APC's foundation is shallow. Give them 100 years they'd still blame PDP for all the wrongs

Les I forget... We need to get Nigeria working again.

Is Obasanjo being polite?
He wrote ill of Atiku in his "my watch" and suddenly, Atiku is the man.

IF THERE IS NO REVOLUTION WETIN WE GAIN?
Why have things gone so bad?
After 58 of independence, we still face many challenges ranging from bad roads, epileptic power supply, unemployment, high poverty rate, poor education, bad economy, inflation etc. which got me asking, "What is the problem with Nigeria? Does it mean that we lack the mental capacity to properly manage our resources?
What was the vision for the independence? How did we lose the sense of purpose and proper management? How did we end up with visionless leaders with no character, filled with so much greed and unrepentantly corrupt? Are we perpetually cursed with political leaders who lack empathy? No wonder a certain singer said, "They see us (the masses) as property, no hope for a common man on the street."
But, let us reason together. Have you ever thought of what goes on in the mind of our leaders? They find comfort in other developed countries, send their children to their schools abroad, seek for medical treatments, buy houses, build industries and lodge the looted Nigerian funds to those countries abroad with no remorse for leaving our education sector in dilapidation - no classroom, no teaching equipment, non-payment of salaries resulting to incessant strike thereby allowing the masses to suffer. In all of these, WETIN WE GAIN!
Many industries have been shut down while many others are striving to survive due to bad infrastructures, no good roads, poor electricity supply, bad government policies that only benefit very few society elites but turning many youths to commercial motorcycle (okada) riders, tricycle(keke) drivers, wheelbarrow pushers, internet fraudsters (yahoo boys) and all sorts of illicit act.
A speaker once said Africa is a cemetery. Their rich men buy houses and live in Europe, build their industries in Australia, go to Asian counties for tourism, have their summer holidays in America. But when they die, the corpses are brought back to Africa for burial. Sadly, the fact remains that nothing is working in this country. As a Nigerian youth, you are probably still in your parents’ house (eating mama thank ma and thank sir) and cannot boast of having ₦20,000 in your account.
Election is when you will be given ₦4,000 per vote by the corrupt politicians, when the youths who are supposed to be the future leaders of the country will be recruited as political thugs, snatching of ballot boxes and other illicit acts while these evil politicians send their wards overseas to safety.
If we do not rise against this illicit act as youths, WETIN WE GAIN?
Year after year, we keep hoping for the best while things keep falling apart with no plans for us. Nigerians keep dying in the hands of malevolent elites. Many Nigerian youths are rotting away in different prisons around the globe while many young women are in the streets for prostitution.
I think that enough is enough! Let us rise. Arise oh Compatriots! Let the frustration and our desire for change in order to get a better quality of life fuel a political revolution. The time has come for us to take our future into our hands irrespective of religion, ethnicity and otherwise. Let us say no to political slavery, let us say no to useless and dumb politics, let us hold our leaders accountable for their misdeeds, let us join hands in one movement for the sake of our unborn generation and say no to this wicked act.
Because if we as youths do not join political movement, "Wetin we gain!"

Every reasonable Nigerian want buhari out.
Muhammadu Buhari is an agent of destabilization, ethnic bigot & religious fanatic who if given more chance would ensure the disintegration of the country. His continuity will further jeopardize
Nigeria's national unity.
