A Civil Society Organisation (CSO), Citizens Action for Good Governance (CAGG) has come out to blast a recent statement by former President Olusegun Obasanjo for saying Nigeria has become a failed state.

This is coming after Prof. Wole Soyinka also supported Obasanjo that the nation has moved closer to extinction.

According to CAGG National Coordinator Mr. Nazir Galadanchi, Obasanjo’s outburst only came about because Buhari refused to do his bidding and accede to his self-serving request.

He added that Obasanjo should not even be talking because he was guilty of the alleged misdeeds and atrocities while in power.

His words, “Obasanjo has been unrelenting, even compulsive and pathological in his attacks, sometimes throwing decency and civility to the dogs and portraying himself as one driven by extreme and unchecked malice and bitterness.

“His most recent utterances and wild claims that Nigeria under Buhari is a failing state is unfortunate, unreasonable, patently false and made against rhyme and reason.

“The irony of it all is that the person making the claim is Olusegun Obasanjo, whose alleged misdeeds and atrocities while in power are legion.”

“He unleashed EFCC on his opponents and turned the anti-graft agency into his personal attack dog and allegedly coerced state Houses of Assembly in Plateau, Bayelsa and Oyo to illegally impeach their governors, sometimes at the wee hours, without quorum.

“He unleashed the military on the hapless people of Odi Bayelsa State) and Zaki-Biam (Benue State) in an orgy of genocidal killings.

“Under him, fuel pump price was increased six times, and about all workers unions went on endless strike actions; in particular, the federal universities were closed for the longest period in the country’s history.

“Obasanjo privatised our common patrimony and till date, nothing is to show for billions of naira raked out of them neither are they functional, rather caused pain in the lives of Nigerians who were laid off, and many have died prematurely.”
