What Obasanjo told Hausa/Fulani, South West, Kogi leaders in Abeokuta over killings in Nigeria

Olusegun Obasanjo, former president of Nigeria, met with the Hausa / Fulani leaders in the southwestern states, Kogi and Kawara in Abeokuta, the capital of the state of Ogun, on insecurity and banditry in the region.

Obasanjo asked Nigerians to stop the culture of “passing faults.” He said that instead of blaming him, they should think of a lasting solution to the threat.

According to Obasanjo, “the solutions to the security challenges of the nation should not be left to one person.” He added that it is not what a man can address alone.

The former president said solutions could come through collective efforts and not through “blaming” here or there. Obasanjo said that West African countries are concerned about security challenges in Nigeria.

He said: “If Nigeria considered other countries that their older brother could not deal with their security problems, where would they go for help if theirs came home?”
