Let’s put partisan politics aside, move Nigeria forward – Obasanjo

FORMER President Obasanjo has called on all Nigerians to put politics aside and work towards moving the country forward.

Obasanjo said this today after a closed-door meeting with the National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Uche Secondus, at the Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library (OOPL), in Abeokuta, Ogun State.

The former president admitted that every right-thinking individual knows that the “Nigeria situation is very bad, but it is not irredeemable.”

The former President expressed concern that the nation is not where it is supposed to be.

Obasanjo told Secondus: “You have not visited me because of partisan politics, but you have visited me as a person who is concerned about where Nigeria is and where Nigeria may be descending into if the right action is not taken.

“And I couldn’t agree with you more. Every right-thinking Nigerian and every lover of Nigeria will agree that Nigeria is not what it should be today unless there is something else wrong with them.

“The situation is bad, very bad, but the situation is not irredeemable. That is where the hope lies. The situation is very bad, but it is not hopelessly irredeemable. Therefore we need all hands on deck. Let’s put partisan politics aside and think of what we can do to get Nigeria to where it is supposed to be and move Nigeria forward,” Obasanjo said.
