Only mentally unstable people believe Nigeria doing well under Buhari – Obasanjo
Former president Olusegun Obasanjo says Nigerians claiming all is well with the country under President Muhammadu Buhari need psychiatrist evaluation.
The former president, who spoke at the Wilson Badejo Foundation’s 15th annual lecture, expressed concern about the outcome of the 2023 presidential election, he implored Nigerians to pray for intervention.
Nigeria is not where it is supposed to be today, If anyone says it is OK where we are at the moment, then the person’s head needs to be examined.” Obasanjo said
Buhari believes his regime is doing well. His media aides, Garba Shehu and Femi Adesina, have fervently echoed this sentiment, even portraying the former military dictator as a born-again ruler and the best president Nigerians have ever had. Among the apologists of Buhari’s regime are information minister Lai Mohammed and junior labour minister Festus Keyamo.
“My friend, (the) late Ahmed Joda, used to tell me that God has given us everything a nation needs, and there’s no need for prayers because if God has given you everything and you squandered it, then something is wrong,” said the ex-president.
He added, “I told him that even at that, we still need prayers as a nation because what is good needs prayers and on the other side too, we still need more prayers.”
Obasanjo expressed fears that things could go wrong if Nigerians did not elect the “right choice” in the 2023 general elections. He did not say what the “right choice” could be.
“It is either we make the right choice in 2023 because if we make the right choice, we would get there,” he stressed. “However, if we do not make the right choice in 2023, things would consume us, and we pray against that one.”
He reiterated that “we must make the right choice in 2023.”
