The former president Olusegun Obasanjo reunites with other politicians at the public presentation of Goodluck Jonathan’s book, ‘My Transition Hours,’ in Abuja, on Tuesday, November 20. He bemoans the present administration by stating that the nation’s democracy should not be handed over to thieves and hooligans they could use it as a weapon against the people.
As legitng gathered: “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. Obasanjo recalled a statement credited to a diplomat that he preferred to live in Nigeria because if it appeared the all would collapse in the morning, things would be cool and calm by the evening. “Let us continue to make Nigeria cool and calm,” he said. Obasanjo congratulated Jonathan for enjoying a peaceful retirement, adding that the post-office life which the former president was enjoying is one that all must crave for, describing it as a life of continued service to humanity.
He calls the former president to action with a responsibility in mind which is to continue to serve people and God.
