A group, under the auspices of Citizens Action for good governance yesterday faulted the former President Olusegun Obasanjo’s claim that Nigeria is fast disintegrating under the watch of President Muhammadu Buhari.
Speaking yesterday during a press conference in Abuja, the group’s national coordinator, Nazir Galadanci argued that Obasanjo’s position on the state of the nation must have been driven by what he termed “extreme and unchecked malice and bitterness” against the President Buhari led administration.
The group maintained that Obasanjo’s antagonistic stance must have been prompted by his inability to teleguide President Buhari to do his bidding.
The group threw its weights behind ongoing quest by the President Buhari led administration to ensure the social economic development of the country.
The group noted: “How can Obasanjo say Nigeria is more divided than ever? He has been the godfather who did not mean well for the progress of the country based on his kingmaking role that gave Nigerians leaders who were not ready for leadership because he wants to control the affairs of Nigeria from his sitting room.
“It is also unfortunate and disheartening to hear from the respected Nobel Laureate, Prof Wole Soyinka, making statement in support of Obasanjo that Nigeria near extinction. This is condemnable and unacceptable”.
