—Fani Kayode reacted, says Buhari is a murderous herdsman who will soon be removed from power and send back to Daura
President Olusegun Obasanjo has written another letter against President Muhammadu Buhari, and his administration, saying that the administration of President Buhari has plunged Nigeria into poverty and allegedly eroded the unity of the country.
The letter came in a new dimension this time as it was written against the President and addressed to the Northern Elders Forum (NEF) in Abuja during a summit organized by the Forum.
Obasanjo who was absent at the submit was however represented by former National Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Prince Olagunsoye Oyinlola who read the letter to the Northern Elders Forum in Abuja.
The letter partly read:
“We lamented the harm that the present Administration of President Muhammadu Buhari, by his action and inaction, has done and is doing to our commonwealth and our common heritage.
“Nigeria, in recent times, has not been so divided along religious and regional lines as at today with inexcusable killings and devastating poverty and with Government’s wringing hands and apparently incompetent to stem the tide except giving one unrighteous and unacceptable justification after the order.
“The obvious indication is that the Government is seemingly confused and has got to the end of its tether and the nation is being left divisively and perilously to drift.
“Earlier last week, I noted in a speech some undesirable elements being allowed and being introduced to our democracy by this Administration.
“If these are not stopped, they could be the death knell of our democracy. In spite of this unfortunate situation created by the Government my contact and consultation, which brought me face-to-face with people plights and frustration, also gave me hope.
“People are not ready to give up in despair and leave their fate and their present and future in the hands of inept leadership for their lives to be ruined.
“I see common concern across the nation irrespective of tribe, religion, region, language and social standing that the situation should be retrieved and the nation should be saved
“My dear brother and friend, Ango, this is why I strongly believe that this meeting, which is beyond politics, beyond religion, beyond economics, beyond status, is for saving the heart and soul of our nation through non- partisan and all-embracing participation to dialogue for our present and our future.
“Because we do not dialogue enough, most of us live in ignorance of one another, burdened and influenced by received prejudices, biases and twisted history.
“The time has come when we should constantly dialogue among ourselves at different levels to inform, educate and enlighten ourselves and dispel bad influences.
“A lot of misgivings, misunderstanding, misconception, misrepresentation, erroneous beliefs and outdated ideas and concepts can be cleared and a lot can be achieved.
“This “Dialogues Amongst Ourselves”, which are starting today, must not be a once-and-for-all affair. We must dialogue often for our collective progress.
“And I have no doubt that this first one will be a huge success. We are in dialogue because we are concerned for our country.
“I will hold myself ready to lead the holding and hosting of the next one at our end after due consultation with you and with others.
“Dialogue removes tensions, clears the air, leads to sharing views and to understand one another’s point of view. It promotes concord, harmony, cohesion, peace, security, inclusiveness, development and progress. It enthrones justice and equity and removes impunity.”
In a similar development,the Former Minister of Aviation, chief Femi Fani-Kayode has reacted to former President Olusegun Obasanjo’s latest letter against President Muhammadu Buhari.
Fani-Kayode took to his Twitter page, to declare his support for Obasanjo’s stance.
“I proudly stand behind my father and leader OBJ in this battle. He is strong, decisive, fearless and bold.
“We shall remove the murderous herdsman called Buhari from power and send him back to Daura,” he said.
