Obasanjo who stated that Buhari needs to rest and allow another person to take charge of the country in an interview with BBC Yoruba, said;
“Buhari is sick in the spirit, body and soul. Let’s beg him to go and rest. He has tried his best. Let give chance to another person.
“When people ask me that what if the next person is not suitable, I tell them that is the beauty of democracy.”
This came after he accused President Buhari of taking the country back to the Sani Abacha era, and plotting to rig the 2019 Presidential election. In the open letter titled “Point for Concern and Action”, former President Olusegun Obasanjo claimed that what is happening in Nigeria under Mr Buhari can be likened to what Nigerians witnessed under a late military dictator, Sani Abacha.
“Buhari has succeeded in deceiving us the first time and we will be fools to allow ourselves to be deceived the second time,” Mr Obasanjo wrote.
“Buba Galadima, who knows Buhari very well as a confidant and National Secretary of Congress for Progressive Change,CPC, the Buhari’s party before it joined in forming All Progressives Congress, APC has warned us this time around that no matter what he promises, he cannot change his character and attitude.”
