The sociocultural organization Igbo, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, has reacted to the last open letter written by former President Olusegun Obasanjo to the government led by President Muhammadu Buhari on the current state of insecurity in the country.

The group urged the federal government not to dismiss Obasanjo’s advice, but to address the fundamental issues raised by the former Nigerian leader.

Chuks Ibegbu, Ohanaeze’s Undersecretary of National Advertising, who spoke with reporters on Wednesday morning in Umuahia, the capital of the state of Abia, nevertheless rebuked Obasanjo, claiming that he (the former President) was an integral part of the problems that currently afflict Nigeria.

Ibegbu pointed out that despite Buhari’s letter to the presidency headed by insecurity on the land, the implementation of the national national confab report of 2014 remained the only solution to the economic and security challenges that currently plague the country. country.

His words: “The concern of former President Olusegun Obasanjo can not be easily ruled out. Because, what is happening today in this country is worrisome. No Nigerian who is not afraid of what is happening in the country, from the point of view of security.

“But, I want to be dispassionate about this, Obasanjo himself contributed to Nigeria’s current problems, Obasanjo was the product of the cacophony of leadership that has ravaged this country in the last thirty to forty years, not everyone who has the courage to Write the letter, this is the second letter that you are writing to the administration headed by President Buhari, I want to thank you for that.

“And I want to ask the current leaders of the country not to reject the letter.” Look at the merits, some of the points described in that letter, and also, see the areas that need to be addressed.

They should not politicize it. The Nigerian government and its citizens look at the genuine aspect of their letter. The critical aspect of your letter can be addressed, and the Buhari government should study it.

“You should not throw the water with the bathtub. To the extent that Obasanjo is an integral part of the challenges that this country is going through during the military and civil regime, of which he was a part.

We are aware of the saga of the third term. We are aware of so many other misfortunes that Nigeria suffered during her regime.

“Then, the seed of what we are going through now, was placed by Obasanjo and later. But, nobody should dismiss his advice. The government led by Buhari should not see it as another letter from Obasanjo.

The government should study it, so that the challenges of insecurity, the challenges of the economy, the challenges of overpopulation, the challenges of murders and the challenges of murderous herders.

“Above all, I must point out that the 2014 national confab report contained solutions to the problems of this country. We can not throw it away We are running away from reality in Nigeria.

We cheat ourselves. We continue going around and around the circle, until we address the fundamental issues. The leaders of this country are ruining this country.

“Nigeria is a blessed country, blessed materially and otherwise. But, the political leaders of this country are insincere with themselves. They keep sticking their heads in the sand. That’s what they’re doing.

They know the solutions to our problems. But for political reasons, because of primordial ethnic sentiments and religious fanaticism, they did not address these issues. The 2014 confab report is the solution to our problems. “
