Tension In Abeokuta As Buhari Set To Unleash DSS On Obasanjo, Others
President Muhammadu Buhari, may have concluded plans to probe Former President, Olusegun Obasanjo and other Former democratic Presidents, who presided over the affairs of the nation from 1999 to 2015, for mis-managing the country’s wealth.
The President gave this hint on Saturday, November 19, in Akure, the Ondo State Capital, where he stated that the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has over the past 16 years succeeded in running the country aground.
According to a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, the President spoke at a meeting he had with governorship aspirant of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Ondo State, party elders in the state, and national officers of the party, before departing for the Democracy Park in Akure for the grand finale of the Ondo APC governorship rally.
The President however, promised that his government would correct the wrongs that were done to the country by the three previous administrations.
“Buhari assured Nigerians that determined, steadfast and patriotic people in the APC-led government will transform the nation’s ailing economy, which was run aground by the party that governed Nigeria for 16 years from 1999 to 2015,” the statement read.
Buhari also advised all the aspirants who lost the party’s ticket to Chief Rotimi Akeredolu to continue to try their luck in subsequent elections.
He urged them to borrow a leaf from him who contested four times in his bid to become the nation’s President.
While urging them to remain loyal to the party, Buhari told the aspirants that losing elections does not mean they should walk out on the party.
He said the unity of the party was crucial for the outcome of next Saturday’s election.
