2019: You did well for forgiving Atiku, he is the right man, Yoruba group tells Obasanjo

A pan-Yoruba group,  Yoruba Youth Forum,
has commended former President Olusegun Obasanjo for forgiving
ex-Vice-President Atiku Abubakar of all his wrongdoings.

The group also lauded Obasanjo for
endorsing Atiku, who is the presidential candidate of the Peoples
Democratic Party, for the 2019 general elections.

The YYF said by forgiving Atiku,
Obasanjo had shown himself as a genuine leader, adding that it believed
that the former President’s move was in the country’s interest because
“the majority of Nigerians are already tired of the APC-led government
which has failed to deliver despite the massive supports by Nigerians.”

The YYF said this in a statement on Monday by its Chairman, Olusegun Bolarinwa.

It said, “We want to specifically thank
former President Olusegun Obasanjo for finally accepting the apology of
his former deputy in the interest of Nigerians.

“Many Nigerian voted for the APC because
they thought the party would be able to improve their lives but today
the party has made a mess of every sector of our national life.

“The economy today is in a total mess.
During the electioneering period,  President Muhammadu Buhari and his
party, APC, made promises which many of us believed.

“Some of us believed in those promises
not because we were fools but because those promises came from Buhari, a
man we once vouched for his integrity.

“But today, Mr President, none of those promises has been fulfilled. Nigeria has fared badly under President Buhari.”

The Yoruba group claimed that under the
Buhari government, the nation’s economy had become “a ravaging bull
running amok and has defied any solution from the government.”

“Majority of Nigerians have become
hopeless in the face of the economic hardship that has plagued the
nation since Buhari took over the mantle of leadership of this great

“The vicious cycle of poverty now engulfs the masses to a level of suffocation,” the group added.

Meanwhile, the senatorial candidate of
the Peoples Democratic Party, Adamawa Central, Murtala Modibbo, has said
Obasanjo’s U-turn and endorsement of Atiku is a sign that the
administration of Buhari has failed Nigerians.

Modibbo said, “It goes to show that the
administration has failed completely. I think the endorsement of former
President Olusegun Obasanjo and other religious leaders goes to confirm
the level of dissatisfaction among the elite for the administration.

“If these same people who endorsed him
(Buhari) over three years ago are now the same persons making a U-turn, 
it speaks volume about the character of the current government that is
now in power.”
