Ex- President Obasanjo To Buhari "Don’t Attempt To Contest In 2019" [Read His Reasons]



                                       
                               
Amidst the harsh economic recession allegedly orchestrated by the inability of the All Progressives Congress-led, APC, Federal Government to formulate sound economic policies, former President, Olusegun Obasanjo, has warned President Muhammadu Buhari, against contesting for president come 2019.
Obasanjo, who on Friday evening spoke through his former Chief Press Secretary, Alex Nwokedi, called on Buhari not to think of returning to power.
Nwokedi, who is the immediate past Chairman, Anambra State Council of Traditional Rulers, however, urged Nigerians to support the President to complete his current tenure.
Speaking with Vanguard, the Traditional Ruler said, “President Buhari has no programme. He had only one ambition. He wanted to be President, and by the grace of God he is now the President.
“There is one adage which says that, ‘When a child wakes up in the night, he is looking for something. And when he sees it, he will go back to sleep’.
“The economy is not just bad, but very bad. We have no alternative than to support him for the remaining years he has to spend.
“The economy is very bad, and Buhari should give way for somebody who has a plan, to come and take care of the economy. What I mean is that Buhari has no programme.
“He has got what he has been awake to get, which is to be President of Nigeria, and after his four years, he should give way for somebody who has a programme to come in and restructure Nigeria economically and geographically.”

On what other programmes should the government put in place after the current diversification and fiscal policies, it claimed will be used to resuscitate the ailing economy, Nwokedi said, “Ask him, what programme does he have? I have told you agriculture, and it is the mainstay of the Nigerian economy, right from time immemorial. Oil is just a recent thing.
“If we develop agriculture, you will see how less concerned we will naturally become about oil.
“Part of the problem, is that Buhari has to be fair to all ethnic groups in Nigeria, and not to pay attention to only one. It is not only when you embezzle money that they say you are dishonest. Buhari could be honest, but he is not a fair man
