Popular human rights Lawyer, Femi Falana has reacted to ex-president, Olusegun Obasanjo’s lengthy letter to President Muhammadu Buhari over his poor handling of Nigeria’s affairs.
Obasanjo, in a 13-page statement, criticized Buhari and urged him to bury any plans of re-contesting in 2019.
“The statement is a clarion call on President Buhari to remove the incompetent and corrupt cabal of power mongers that has hijacked political power from him. Through sheer nepotism and cronyism, the regime has lost the massive goodwill that heralded it to power.
“The success recorded in the fight against insurgency in the northeast zone has been eroded in the wave of kidnapping and reckless killing of unarmed Nigerians by AK47-bearing herdsmen. The success of the fight against corruption and impunity has been rubbished by the inability of the regime to remove corrupt public officers.
“President Obasanjo’s challenge has been taken up by many Nigerians who have already formed a coalition of genuine progressive forces to liberate Nigeria from internal colonialism and imperialist control.”
