Ex-president, Olusegun Obasanjo has advised the people of the south-east geopolitical zone to vote out President Muhammadu Buhari in the upcoming 2019 general elections.
Obasanjo added that the move was ‘in their own interest’. Speaking at a meeting of the Coalition of Nigeria movement in Awka, Anambra state on Wednesday, OBJ pointed out that Igbos will be the biggest beneficiaries of Buhari’s removal.
He advised Igbos not to believe the promise that the zone will produce the president of the nation in 2023 describing it as an” Evil Machination and Grand Deceit”.
Speaking through the South East convener of CNM, Dr. Okey Nwosu, OBJ said;
“The meeting is a wake-up call for Nd’Igbo to dump APC and collaborate with CNM, which is the best alternative for their rescue from poverty, hunger, recklessness and ethnic cleansing in the hands of the Hausa/Fulani marauders.
Every Nigerian leader is very much embarrassed with the state of the nation where people are attacked, killed, raped and made refugees in their own homes. Political leaders must advocate action against these senseless killings and seek how to design a new democratic action plan to ensure we take care of this conundrum democratically, and say, ‘Enough is enough.’
He accused the All Progressives Congress government of perpetrating “carnage and wanton destruction of lives and property across the country.”
