Obasanjo claims Buhari’s govt overwhelmed by security challenges
Former Nigeria’s president, Olusegun Obasanjo, has said the security challenges facing Nigeria are ‘a serious situation’, adding that the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari has been overwhelmed.
He therefore called for concerted efforts by stakeholders to stem the tide.
The former president spoke at the Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library, in Abeokuta, Ogun State, while receiving a Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential aspirant, Dr. Ugochukwu Williams and his team.
Obasanjo, while reacting to the recent attacks on Kaduna-Abuja train, where no fewer than seven persons were confirmed dead and 21 other passengers missing, said the security challenge in Nigeria has overwhelmed the Muhammadu Buhari-led administration.
His words: “If anybody comes to say I want to see you, I want to talk to you, I will say ‘you’re welcome. This is because I believe very strongly, and I have said it publicly and I will say it again that the situation we are in this country is not a situation where one man will say yes, he has a solution unless we are deceiving ourselves. I believe we need to sit down collectively and look at the situation.
“A situation where you are not safe on the road, you are not safe on the train, you are not safe at the airport, shows a very serious situation.
“I believe that all right-thinking Nigerians must know that we have a situation that has overwhelmed the present administration, but we should not allow that situation to overwhelm Nigeria.”
