2019: 'Vote out Buhari in your own interest' - Obasanjo warns Igbos | Nigerian News. Latest Nigeria News. Your online Nigerian Newspaper. f


Ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo on Wednesday asked the people of the South East geopolitical zone to vote out President Muhammadu Buhari in the 2019 general elections “in their own interest.”

Speaking at a meeting of the Coalition of Nigerian Moment in Awka, Anambra State, Obasanjo said the Igbo would be the most beneficiary in Buhari’s ouster.

He asked the Igbo not to believe the promise that the Igbo would produce the President in 2023, describing it as “a grand deceit and evil machination.”

Speaking through the South East convener of CNM, Dr. Okey Nwosu, the ex-president asked the people of the zone to “collectively work with the CNM towards ousting Buhari from office in the 2019 general elections..

He accused the All Progressives Congress government of perpetrating “carnage and wanton destruction of lives and property across the country.”

He said, “The meeting is a wake-up call for Nd’Igbo to dump APC and collaborate with CNM, which is the best alternative for their rescue from poverty, hunger, recklessness and ethnic cleansing in the hands of the Hausa/Fulani marauders.

“Every Nigerian leader is very much embarrassed with the state of the nation where people are attacked, killed, raped and made refuges in their own homes.

“Political leaders must advocate action against these senseless killings and seek how to design a new democratic action plan to ensure we take care of this conundrum democratically, and say, ‘Enough is enough.’

“If unchecked, these unethical activities will lead to the destruction of the country. It does not augur well for Nigeria’s development.”

He said the objective of CNM was mostly on how to “sack Buhari from Aso Rock in 2019 and ensure that a visionary government is elected.”

He added, “Nigeria’s eminent personalities, including Generals Yakubu Gowon, Ibrahim Babangida and T.Y. Danjuma have all spoken and condemned the killings and destruction in the country.

“If these people can say that the nation needs to be saved from these calamities, the South-East geo-political zone must add their voice to the clarion call.”

He said the CNM had mobilised no fewer than five million Nigerians to realise its objectives in 2019.

  1. Man, you've outlived your usefulness. Even, while in the presidency, your usefulness was limited to what you'll gain rather than the love of the country. If you've a personal problem's with Buhari or APC,go settle your differences, instead of bringing a whole section of the country into conflict. People have a mind of theirs and will cast their votes for whomever they wish to lead them. Stop being a spoil sport.

    1. Was he addressing u. So u are now d spokesman for d ibos

    2. Don't mind him. He will have no job if this evil government is ousted come 2019. I am not a fan of OBJ, rather, I used to be a supporter of the unfortunate president that has become an affliction like never seen before in Nigeria. Is OBJ point correct? That should be our concern. Nigeria cannot bear one more hour after May 29, 2019 with Buhari as president. Those making excuses for him are doomed. This president is the definition of DECEIT.

    3. Bankole, u are evil by taking delight in what people are passing through. People are tired of this government for their gross deception and incompetency.

  2. Bankole you are the most wicked man on earth, Buhari government will be a thing of the past come 2019 by the special grace of God, it is yoruba people like you that sold this country into this calamity we are facing now,why would you not take side in Buhari's government when you are eating from his table because his government favour your pocket that is why you are running your stupid mouth anywho. Do you know how many people in tears now all over the country? especially in Benue State? Any way we will show Buhari way out by God's grace come 2019 because, we have seen his body language he want to Islamism this country that is why he is quiet to declare the herdsmen terrorist but he can declared Biafra who is fighting for their right without killing anyone terrorist, nonsense!

  3. Beside, old age is worrying Buhari let him leave that seat, he is doing nothing rather than bringing more hardship and killings into the country, we are tired of this insane government

  4. People like Obj that suppose to be in jail for using state money to build presidential library and a private university gallivanting all round to discredit Buhari well he should pray for Buhari not to win because one out the two will happen which is to forfeit them or be jailed period

    1. Andy, if you are in saner clime, you should understand what human being are saying here not to be comparing dead issues that you cannot even substantiate with any evident. if you are ok, you will see that this government (APC and Buhari)is destroying everything good in this country from economics top human life. it is only a carcass or living-dead that did not see or feel and then still justifying and comparing what is happening in the country now.

  5. FGN,Please complete Lagos -Ibadan express road.How many years will it take you to complete this road?People are dying there everyday through road accident.Pls pls pls pls our people are dying on this road.
