Iyabo Obasanjo Reacts To Her Father’s Letter To Buhari

The daughter of Ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo, Iyabo Obasanjo has reacted to her father’s letter to President Buhari as she urged the President to heed to the wise counsel.

The former president had last week written a letter to President Buhari highlighting his shortcomings and urging him not to run in the 2019 elections.

A report from Premium Times disclosed that Iyabo in a recent statement expressed hope that Nigeria will rise up and called on Buhari to follow her father’s advice.

The former senator also lashed out at those recirculating a letter she wrote against her father in 2013 saying it was irrelevant to the current discourse. She described her father as one of the most brilliant leaders to ever emerge in modern Africa”.

Iyabo said those who should benefit from the advise and admonishment of one of the most brilliant leaders to ever emerge in modern Africa have resorted to a cheap tactic that further reiterates the message that they found abhorrent enough to start looking for unconnected issues to put together to make their point.”

The wise should listen wherever help and advice comes from.

Those who re-published the old letter should have spent time to respond to the content of the said statement which called for President Buhari to retire in 2019.

I agree with the open letter and I hope Africa will emerge from its current dwindling fortunes and become a leading nation in the world.

It is tiring to continue to be part of Nigerian conversation when there’s no positive impact to it.

I really do not want to be part of it, as I’ve found over and over again that speech and words are wasted on people who have no understanding of responsibility on us as black people on this planet.”
