Stop Attacking Buhari, Take Rest At 82, Alake Advises Obasanjo by vegafbs: 7:01pm On Mar 05, 2019

The Alake and Paramount Ruler of Egbaland, Oba Aremu Gbadebo, on Tuesday advised former President Olusegun Obasanjo to desist from his ceaseless attacks on President Muhammadu Buhari.

Alake gave the advice in his goodwill message to mark the 82nd birthday anniversary of Obasanjo at the Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library in Abeokuta.

Gbadebo, who noted that Obasanjo had been ‘‘a warrior’’ all his life, urged him to rest, fight less and rather take a position of a consultant at his new age.

‘‘At 82 years, I think you should keep your sword more rather than use it always,’’ he said.

The Alake, who served as a military officer during the military administration of Muhammadu Buhari between 1984 and 1985, said he had always told Obasanjo to leave his boss (Buhari) alone.

Obasanjo, who responded to goodwill messages from friends, family members and well wishers at the programme, responded by saying that the issues between him and Buhari were not personal.

According to the elder statesman, governance is not a family affair, adding that democracy involves criticisms and consideration of all sides to an issue.

‘‘There is nothing personal between President Buhari and I.

‘‘In a democracy, you can criticise a policy, a government or a leader because democracy is not a family affair.

‘‘If it is my brother that is occupying the leadership role and he is not doing what I believe he should do, he must be criticised and that is what democracy is all about.

‘‘I have been in that position longer than any Nigerian will ever be there.

‘‘So if I say anybody in government in Nigeria is not doing well, let that government prove that it is doing well,’’ he said.

Earlier, former Minister of Home Affairs of the Republic of South Africa, Mr. Mangosuthu Buthelezi, delivered a lecture entitled: ‘‘Colonialism, Apartheid, Freedom and South Africa Rising.’’

Buthelezi, in the lecture, identified corruption as the biggest challenge facing the African continent.

He expressed concern that South Africa currently ranked so poorly on the Corruption Perceptions Index of the Transparency International.

The former South-African Minister attributed the development to ‘‘the mistakes we have made, allowing resources to be consumed by greed and abuse.’’

Buthelezi, who noted that only six countries in the African Union had ranked above 50 on the corruption index, stressed that ‘‘corruption is pervasive throughout the region.

‘‘This is difficult to hear and perhaps, it stirs our anger. We must, however, accept the facts and fix them.

‘‘When we consider countries like Seychelles and Botswana who have become paragons of excellence, we need to ask what they did to achieve this.

‘‘We know that Botswana, for instance, reinforced its legal and institutional frameworks and made resources available specifically to fight corruption.

‘‘There are measures we can take and we must take them.

“If we can overcome these challenges in Africa, we will open the possibilities for growth, development and social justice that were the dreams of my generation,’’ he said.

Positive criticism is welcome in every sane environment

But supporting an international thief (atiku)is a no no

Obasanjo can keep shooting his mouth wide
No sane mind will take him serious
Whao ky protecting his personal interest

The question you should ask yourself is why 6,000 Nigerians migrate to Lagos EVERY DAY and not your own state.

Lagos has the ports and proximity. So the issue of cost does not hold water as kano is more densely populated than lagos while being virtually unmapped.
Ganduje got kickbacks, which is very bad, but doing more work or in tandem with lagos, one must ask is the allocation of lagos kickbacks?
In comparison to other states, majority receive an average of N60bn with salaries gulping N40bn - N45bn.
But lagos earns over N300bn on allocation(officially) while unaccounted revenue is at its highest peak, why are world class infrastructures not seen but rather Kano state with less in all comparison is at par with lagos on infrastructure?
Are lagosians being cheated?!!!

Since you guys can't tell Baba the truth, the Alake is interested in doing that.

You won't like it cos the Alake said the truth.

We have seen what PDP did in Bayelsa with huge allocations.

We have seen what PDP did in Delta with huge allocations.

PDP that couldn't complete its secretariat in 16 years is what you want to force on Lagosians?

Our reply for you is not on Nairaland, you'll get it on Saturday.

The so-called Alake and Paramount Ruler of Egbaland, Oba Aremu Gbadebo is just a pitiless fool. If at 82, Obasanjo keeps his mouth shut and fails to criticism, what good is his wisdom at such age?
