The Yoruba Ronu Leadership Forum, a Yoruba group supporting the second-term agenda of President Muhammadu Buhari, yesterday, said former President Olusegun Obasanjo and his co-travellers are taking Nigerians for fools.
The forum was reacting to a statement credited to Obasanjo on Thursday, where the ex-president said the All Progressives Congress (APC) is taking Nigerians for fools. The General Secretary of the forum, Mr. Akin Malaolu said the former president was trying to deceive Nigerians again.
“It was not without doubt that the Yoruba Ronu Leadership Forum warned Nigerians against trusting the candidature of Goodluck Jonathan in 2010 due to his several weaknesses and obtuseness in power.
“More so, Jonathan himself confirmed to our foreign friend, former United States ambassador to Nigeria, Robin Sanders, that he lacked administrative experience to be president, but was there by chance because of where he came from which was South South.
“Today, we can measure with clarity of mind, the sad and obtuse footprints he left behind. Leaders across the two divides, and including Obasanjo, Ohanaeze and Afenifere, all saw Jonathan’s incapacitation in administration.”
Malaolu said Nigerians now know what is good for them and for their children’s future. “They planted the seed of division long before now and they are still repeating same perplexing errors in their ignorance.
Nigerians will not allow some false leaders that could commit abomination with ease to take away their hopes in the present government of President Muhammadu Buhari. “We must warn against war, because wars have never solved the needs for war anywhere in the world and in wars, procreation is delayed, women and their children would suffer.’’ Recall that the group in April, expressed its support for Buhari’s second term bid.
