"President Buhari needs a dignified and honourable dismount from the horse"-Olusegun Obasanjo

Ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo has said President Muhammadu Buhari "needs a dignified and honourable dismount from the horse." In a scathing press statement released today, Obasanjo made several observation, including the fact that APC do not have answers to Nigeria's problems. He also rejected the PDP and instead proposed what he called "Coalition Movement" to restore the glory of the country. 

Advising Buhari to go and rest, Obansanjo wrote:


"President Buhari needs a dignified and honourable dismount from the horse. He needs to have time to reflect, refurbish physically and recoup and after appropriate rest, once again, join the stock of Nigerian leaders whose experience, influence, wisdom and outreach can be deployed on the side line for the good of the country. His place in history is already assured. Without impaired health and strain of age, running the affairs of Nigeria is a 25/7 affair, not 24/7.

I only appeal to brother Buhari to consider a deserved rest at this point in time and at this age. I continue to wish him robust health to enjoy his retirement from active public service. President Buhari does not necessarily need to heed my advice. But whether or not he heeds it, Nigeria needs to move on and move forward."
