Olusegun Obasanjo during a speech delivered in Ogun State said that we are all victims of the incompetent government of President Muhammad Buhari.
Olusegun Obasanjo said; “But this time, for us to make it, we need all hands on deck. You see, I have publicly said and I mean it, that as a party, neither PDP nor APC can get us there as they have been. Never mind about reforms and apology and all that.
“As I said, stop giving excuses; we met challenges. If there are no challenges, then we wouldn’t need you to come. You come in because you know there are challenges and then giving us excuse that you have many challenges, that is why you haven’t achieved results.”
While castigating the APC, Olusegun Obasanjo also condemned his former political party, PDP. He urged Nigerians not to accept the apology of PDP. He said both APC and PDP could not salvage Nigeria.
“But this time, for us to make it, we need all hands on deck. You see, I have publicly said and I mean it, that as a party, neither PDP nor APC can get us there as they have been. Never mind about reforms and apology and all that.
However, Obasanjo believed there are some members of the APC and PDP that still have integrity and can help Nigeria succeed.
“But let us bring together all these movements because we are pursuing the same thing. If we allow ourselves to be taken piecemeal, it is finished. Now if we are together. Yes, I said you cannot take PDP as it is and APC as it is; but they are not all made of evil people.
“There are good people. I said PDP is leprous hand, APC is leprous hand, but there are some clean fingers in them. So, let’s take those clean fingers in them and graft the clean fingers in our own. That is the way to go and if we go that way, we will get there, we will move together, and we will move fast and we will move far,” Olusegun Obasanjo told his guests.
