Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has asked the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) federal government to stop complaining about the challenges it inherited from the Goodluck Jonathan administration.
President Muhammadu Buhari, according to Obasanjo would not have been elected in the 2015 polls, if there were no challenges.
Obasanjo again spoke on the state of the nation while receiving members of a political movement, the New Nigeria 2019, at the Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library complex in Abeokuta.
He asked Nigerians not to vote for APC in 2019 polls, so as not to reinforce the alleged failure of the Buhari administration.
Obasanjo who floated the Coalition for Nigeria Movement, also cautioned Nigerians not to be deceived by a public apology by Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for its shortcomings while in power.
Neither APC not PDP, according to Obasanjo, could bail Nigeria out of its economic woes, describing both as leprous hands.
“But let us bring together all these movements because we are pursuing the same thing. If we allow ourselves to be taken piecemeal, it is finished. Now if we are together… Yes, I said you cannot take PDP as it is and APC as it is; but they are not all made of evil people.
“There are good people. I said PDP is leprous hand, APC is leprous hand, but there are some clean fingers in them. So, let’s take those clean fingers in them and graft the clean fingers in our own. That is the way to go and if we go that way, we will get there, we will move together, and we will move fast and we will move far,” he told his guests.Please subscribe to our newsletter
