You Have A Lot Of Work To Do, Obasanjo Tells Buhari Tonight

In a congratulatory message by former president of Nigeria, Olusegun Obasanjo to General Muhammadu Buhari on his victory as Nigeria’s elected president, Olusegun Obasanjo has warned Buhari that he has a lot of work to do, but he’s confident he can carry out the duties due to his past experience.

“With so much harm already done to many national institutions including the military, which proudly nurtured you and me, you will have a lot to do on institution reform – education, healthcare, economy, security, infrastructure, power, youth employment, agri-business, oil and gas, external affairs, cohesiveness of our nation and ridding our land of corruption, he told the elected president.

“Your varied and wide experience will undoubtedly stand you in good stead,” he also added to him.

“Nigeria is blessed with men and women of goodwill, character and virtue across the board that you can mobilise to join hands with you in the reform, repairs and re-direction that will be imperative to put Nigeria back on the fast lane of good governance, unity, cohesiveness, development and progress,” he said.

“For me, the totality of 2015 elections hold many lessons for our democracy and democratisation process, which are both maturing.

“On this occasion, the system has been unnecessarily overheated before and particularly during the campaigns when emphasis was more on trivialities and hate, divisive, undignifying and disrespectful statements and comments rather than on pressing issues requiring attention.

“I know that in victory, you will be magnanimous to start binding the wounds and bitterness occasioned by the campaign and the evil disciples,” he concluded.

What moral, political and cultural value did you impart on our generation? Are you implying that best political leaders globally are military men in democratic dispensation? You are too vindictive to say d least.As a civilian president, you did nothing tangible to better the lot of the masses of this great Nation.
