Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has come under attack from the Forum of Non-Governmental Organisations in Nigeria (FONGON) for asking President Muhammadu Buhari not to contest in 2019.

Addressing supporters during a meeting in Abuja on Tuesday, the National Coordinator of FONGON, which claims to be a coalition of 200 groups, Wole Badmus, asked the President to ignore Obasanjo, whom he described as an attention seeker.

Badmus claims that Obasanjo has a hidden agenda which was why he decided to make the issue public.

He said, “Obasanjo, with due respect, whether he has good intentions for the country or not, we cannot really say but we know if you want to identify the problems of Nigeria, 50 per cent can be attributed to Obasanjo.

“Letter writing is not new to the man either. In his book titled, ‘My Command’, you will see that Obasanjo blamed all the actors in the Civil War from Murtala Muhammed to Benjamin Adekunle. The only person he exonerated was himself.

“In ‘My Watch’, he claimed the late Chief Obafemi Awolowo was not the leader of the Yoruba and even attacked him. He castigated his Vice-President, Atiku Abubakar.”

Badmus advised Obasanjo to stop trying to impose his will on Nigerians, adding that the former President lacked the right to act as the conscience of the nation.

Badmus said, “You spent eight years and attempted to get four more years. You don’t have the moral right to tell someone who has not spent up to four years not to spend an additional four years. It is not done, we will not allow that.”
