Former president of Nigeria, Olusegun Obasanjo, has warned that the continuing political disaster in Mali, may just have an effect on Nigeria.
Obasanjo said this in a piece of writing he wrote for The Africa Record on Thursday.
He famous that the disaster poses grave safety dangers to neighbouring West African nations particularly Senegal, Burkina Faso and Niger Republic.
There’s a protest motion in Mali, calling for the resignation of President Ibrahim Boubacar Keita, over allegations of corruption and incompetence.
Obasanjo feels the protest isn’t the same as the ones previously, as it has the reinforce of majority of the inhabitants.
“The present political turmoil in Mali is of grave worry taking into account the multidimensional affect of an escalation of the political deadlock on about 19 million electorate and what a destabilized Mali will imply to West Africa,”
“The effects will reverberate throughout the entire West Africa area, with the security and safety of Senegal, Burkina Faso and Niger at once in danger. If the ones nations stumble, the results will ripple throughout coastal states reminiscent of Cote d’Ivoire, Ghana, Togo, Benin and Guinea. It is going to reverberate even to Nigeria.”
Obasanjo says for the disaster to be resolved, an settlement “which won’t compromise democracy, safety and human rights” will have to be reached to carry the protests to an finish.
