Obasanjo Warns Against Rumoured Plan To Hand Over To Military

Former President, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, yesterday, raised alarm of a rumour that the Goodluck Jonathan administration planned to hand over to the military if he loses in Saturday’s presidential election, warning that this would undermine the integrity of Nigeria among the mutual civility of nations. Here’s what he said while hosting the South West women of the All Progressives Congress (APC) led by Mrs Aisha Buhari.

“I do hope we will get things more right at this point in time. A lot of rumours are flying around, I think we have done away from the rumour of Interim Government because that is not in our constitution. I hope we will soon go away from the rumour of handing over to the military because the military is not meant to run affairs of a nation in terms of running a government.

“And the International group of Community will not condone it, particularly African Union where it is part and parcel of the constitutional act of the African Union, that any government that is brought about, not on the basis of the constitution will not be accepted, will not be tolerated and will not be a member of the AU until that government is dismantled.

“It shouldn’t be Nigeria, we are the largest country in Africa, we should be a model, setting examples, and not the other way round drawing Africa backward, I hope we will not. I hope at the end of this exercise, we would be where we should be, leading Africa and showing examples for Africa and indeed the rest of the world.

“We have the goodwill of many people, I watched, last night, President Obama talking about our constitution, I watched our brother from Ghana,  the current Chairman of ECOWAS talked about our constitution, they are all following and very interested, they all wish us well, should we wish ourselves anything less?,” he said.
