Obasanjo Started Nigeria’s Problem, Jonathan Worsened It – Afenifere



Pan-Yoruba social cultural association, Afenifere Renewal Group, has accused former President Olusegun Obasanjo of laying the foundation for the problems currently confronting Nigeria.
The group in an electronic mail sent out to journalists over the weekend by its Publicity Secretary, Kunle Famoriyo, noted that though Obasanjo laid the foundation for the problems, the administration of President Goodluck Jonathan was responsible for the worsening insecurity, economic crisis and corruption in the country.
According to him, “With the security of the country at the lowest abysmal region and unbridled corruption eating daily into the fabric of our society, you can smell nepotism all over the place.
“The reign of impunity and terror can be found in President Jonathan’s administration. Even as former President Olusegun Obasanjo created part of the problems confronting Nigeria today, his reign cannot be compared with the clueless Jonathan administration that some people are trying to market to us in Yorubaland.
“We are no fools. President Jonathan has been able to run Nigeria aground economically; he should not be painted as a performing president.”
The group further claimed that Jonathan could not be regarded as an advocate of Yoruba advancement and development, adding that those who “stage-managed the Jonathan endorsement” in Ile-Ife had never been known to be in the vanguard of Yoruba developmental struggle.
“Were Gen. Alani Akinrinade and Mr. Wale Oshun at the Ife Summit? The translation of democracy for us in Yorubaland is a struggle for development. We know the political tendency that cares for our advancement.
“We know the people who still have the milk of humanity flowing in them and whose body language empathises with the people. Jonathan should ride his bicycle to somewhere else in Bayelsa State,” Famoriyo said.
