‘Don’t Handover Nigeria To Thieves’ – Obasanjo

Speaking on Tuesday as former President Goodluck Jonathan presented his book, ‘My Transition Hours,’ Obasanjo said if the nation’s democracy was handed over to those in such categories, they could use it as a weapon against the people.

The former president noted that democracy can only be sustained in the country if only power is in the hands of ‘Democrats’.

Obasanjo said, “There is still no substitute for democracy when all is said and done. It fosters peace. It builds and does not destroy. It unifies, rather than divides.

“But all these can only happen if democracy is in the hands of democrats. If it is in the hands of thieves and hooligans, they can use it as a weapon. We should ensure hooligans don’t get it.

“Let us continue to make Nigeria cool and calm.”

He commended Jonathan for his peaceful retirement, adding that the post-office life which Jonathan was enjoying was one that all must crave for.

He also advised him not to be found wanting in serving his community, state, Nigeria, Africa and the world.
