PostSubject: Obasanjo warns against plot to hand over to military   2015-03-25, 06:05

FORMER President Olusegun
Obasanjo on Tuesday warned
against handing over the reins of
government to the military.
Obasanjo said the speculation that
the government was planning an
Interim Government had been
substituted by speculations that
President Goodluck Jonathan was
plotting to hand over to the
military. He said that doing so
would undermine the integrity of
the country.
The ex-President, while hosting
Aisha Buhari, wife of the All
Progressives Congress presidential
candidate, Maj. Gen. Muhammadu
Buhari, said, “I do hope we will get
things more right. A lot of rumours
are flying around; I think we have
gone away from the rumour of
Interim Government because that
is not in our constitution.
“I hope we will soon go away from
the rumour of handing over to the
military because the military is not
meant to run the affairs of a nation
in terms of running government.”
Obasanjo, who said that he was
happy that the country had gone
beyond the Interim Government
rumour, added that he hoped the
nation would also survive the
rumour of handing over to the
military.
He said, “The international
community will not condone it,
particularly the African Union where
we have a situation, we have said
and it is part and parcel of the
constituting Act of the African
Union. Any government that is
brought about not on the basis of
the constitution will not be
accepted; will not be tolerated and
will not be a member of the AU
until that government is
dismantled.
“It shouldn’t be. We are the largest
country in Africa; we should be a
model, setting examples, we
shouldn’t be drawing Africa
backwards. I hope we will not. I
hope at the end of this exercise, we
would be where we should be,
leading Africa and showing
examples for the rest of Africa and
indeed the rest of the world.
“We have the goodwill of many
people. I watched last night,
President (Barack) Obama talking
about our constitution; I watched
our Brother from Ghana, the current
Chairman of ECOWAS talking about
our constitution. They are all
interested, they all wish us well;
should we wish ourselves anything
less?”
Recently, the former President had
warned the current administration
not to plunge this country into
chaos by following the footsteps of
the former President of Cote
d’lvoire, Laurent Gbagbo, who
refused to hand over to the winner
of the presidential election in his
country.
Obasanjo also bemoaned hate
campaigns among politicians,
advising that they should focus
more on what united the country as
opposed to what divided the
country.
According to him, for anyone who is
interested in the future of this
country, issues of insecurity,
economy and unemployment,
among others, should form the
focus of political campaigns.
He said, “Unfortunately, issues that
should have been the main item of
our campaign, they did not. We
have serious issues of security, we
have serious issue of our economy,
we have issue of unemployment,
particularly youth unemployment,
we have serious issues of
infrastructure.
“These are issues among others
that I believe campaign of those
who are interested in the present
and the future of this country
should be directed at.
“How are we going to get them and
what are we going to do? Not trivial
issues of certificate or no
certificate, not trivial issues of
somebody talking about someone
is a Nigerian and not a Nigerian.
“I said it, this is what they had in
Cote d’Ivoire and led them into
almost a very serious problem, not
issue of religion, not issue of tribe,
not issue of section but issues of
unity of this country and the hate
campaigns that we have embarked
upon now, I hope this will be the
last time in the history of this
country that we will have this type
of campaign of hatred or division.”
Obasanjo commended Buhari’s
wife, stressing that women had a
role to play in politics and
enthronement of good governance.
