N'Delta Region Will Suffer Jonathan's Action, Inaction — Obasanjo


Former President of Nigeria, General Olusegun Obasanjo, has said that the Niger Delta region will suffer for the actions and inactions of his successor, Goodluck Jonathan.
Jonathan, who lost to President Mohammadu Buhari hails from Bayelsa State in the Niger Delta.
Obasanjo made the statement on Friday while responding to questions shortly after he delivered the convocation lecture of the Benson Idahosa University in Benin City.
He explained that he couldn’t have helped Jonathan do his job as Nigeria’s President after helping him secured the presidency.
According to him, “To become Head of State was because of my performance in the war front. If General Gowon had not sent me to the war front, he would not know whether I could perform or could not perform. He sent me to the war front and because I performed, we both shared the credit but if I had failed, he would not have shared the condemnation with me. I would have been alone.
“I believe that the opportunity that availed itself in 2010 was for somebody from the minority to become the President of Nigeria. We should never lose such opportunity. What he did with it is entire up to him. What he did or did not do with it will reflect for a long time in that part of the country. There is no particular person who got there without the people.”
