It’s Time To Turn Up The Heat ––Says Obasanjo

Posted: December 22, 2013 in Uncategorized

After firing several shots in his much-publicised letter to President Goodluck Jonathan, it appears that Nigeria’s former president, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, is not yet done. In his latest comments on the polity and the 2015 presidential race posted on his Facebook page, Obasanjo expressed fear over the possibility of the crisis-ridden Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to make any meaningful impact in 2015.

Indicating that he has totally lost fate in the PDP as is being run today in Abuja, Obasanjo declares: “It is now time to turn up the heat. May the best party win.”

The PDP had been thrown into confusion, which had polarised the party at national and state levels, leading to their governors and lawmakers defecting to the All Progressives Congress (APC).

In order to rescue the party from its leadership and the presidency, Obasanjo had written an 18-page letter to President Jonathan, asking him to drop his second term ambition, which is regarded as cause of the crisis.

As soon as Obasanjo posted his latest comment on facebook, Nigerians started reacting. Some endorsed his position, others disagree with him.

Ezinne Adora Ukejianya wrote:
“Good day sir and compliments of the season. Sir, I am a young Nigerian doctor and I just want to appreciate you for that letter you wrote to President Goodluck. It was about time someone of your pedigree actually spoke up and we are grateful that you did it this way.

“We just hope His Excellency will take the admonitions and not begin to wage war instead. Please sir, do not mind those saying negative things. It doesn’t matter.”

Michael Olayemi wrote:
“Baba, Nigerians want you to explain better the letter you wrote to Mr President. In the letter, you wrote a lot of things which are likely to help solve the problems this country faces and also things which can damage the image of this country.

“You may say you are exercising your fundamental human rights (freedom of speech), but I am sure you know that when a statement is wrongfully made against the government of the day it becomes an offence.”

Eneje Hillary said, “Yes, Baba, let there be a fight”.

Okun Alek said, “Your open letter did that already!”

Kolawole Akeem said, “What Baba means is that APC will win at federal level the way things are going.”

Kene Umeadi saod, “You shouldn’t have written that letter chief. I am not impressed by it.”

Adebayo Tunde Babs said: “let Baba open up or you don’t want better for this country? Let Baba Obasanjo ride on. Up OBJ, up Nigeria.”
