A constitutional lawyer, Mike Ozekhome has joined other notable Nigerians to react to the letter sent to President Muhammdu Buhari by former President, Dr. Olusegun Obasanjo.
Ozekhome said that 20 years would not even be enough for President Buhari to do anything reasonable to better the lives of Nigerians.
In a 3, 564-word letter, Obasanjo had asked President Buhari to perish the idea of returning to power in 2019.
He told him not to contest in the presidential election.
Speaking with reporters hours after the letter was made public, the senior lawyer said even if Buhari was given another 20 years, he’ll still fail.
He thanked Obasanjo for advising Buhari not to seek re-election in the 2019 general elections.
He said, “Even if you give Buhari another 20 years, he will only take Nigeria backward more and more. It is better to save Nigeria from him.
“That is why some of his supporters in the ruling party are backing off because they have realized that he’s a wrong horse to back.
“Some APC governors are still playing the proverbial ostrich, saying this man is doing well even when they know that he is not doing well.
“So, I totally agree with Chief Olusegun Obasanjo. Indeed his call is coming too late.”
