Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has said President Muhammadu Buhari is sick in his body, soul and spirit and needs to vacate the position to take a well deserved rest.
He said this in an interview with BBC Yoruba.
“Buhari is sick in the spirit, body and soul. Let’s beg him to go and rest. He has tried his best. Let give chance to another person,” Obasanjo said.
“When people ask me that what if the next person is not suitable, I tell them that is the beauty of democracy.”
Obasanjo had on Sunday accused Buhari of taking the country back to the Sani Abacha era, saying he was using security agencies to stifle his opponents.
“EFCC, Police and Code of Conduct Tribunal are also being equally misused to deal with those Buhari sees as enemies for criticising him or as those who may not do his bidding in manipulating election results. Criticism, choice and being different are inherent trade mark of democracy. If democracy is derailed or aborted, anarchy and authoritarianism will automatically follow,” Obasanjo had said.
