Former President, Olusegun Obasanjo has declared that the President Goodluck Jonathan-led administration was as bad as the regime of the former military dictator, Sani Abacha.
Obasanjo likened both administrations while receiving a delegation of 150 persons from the Nigerian Market Traders Council at his Abeokuta hilltop mansion who had visited to seek his counsel on where to cast their votes in 2015.
According to the former leader, the current political and economic situation of the country was similar to that of the Abacha’s regime. He said that the middle class has been wiped out completely.
He referred to text messages sent to him by disillusioned Nigerians who said they were unable to afford vehicles despite what Obasanjo described as their “good jobs”.
Hear him, “As for me, we don’t know where we are going yet. May God show us the way. The way that will take this country and make it a great country, and when, for me ooo, I understand and (if) I see the way, I will tell you, I pray that God will show me the way, may God show you the way.
“Tough time does not last forever, and when tough times come, tough people get going, we will keep going and we will survive this though time.
“I told him (the SMS sender) that we have experienced this period in time of Abacha, the middle class was completely destroyed.”

Continuing, he noted: “I was surprised the day a Colonel in the Army came to me complaining that he and his family could not afford to buy a car.
“A friend of mine, Dr. Okoro, a medical Doctor, his wife was also a medical Doctor and they have daughter too, who is also a medical Doctor, between the three of them, they could not afford a new car, they had to go to Saudi Arabia but, I pray we will not have such a time in Nigeria.
“We all have contribution to make and should not leave our responsibility on others to do. If we fail to participate in things that are meaningfully positive for this country, you will be a victim and we all become victims,”
he concluded.
What do u think Readers ?

We have never had leaders in Nigeria.....only Rulers.
And ruling comes with oppression, selfishness and deafened ear.

Old man stop this open criticism,if you really have the interest of the country at heart,then you know how to channel your positive criticism and advise to the President.I am sure you have the phone numbers of the President.I am also sure the President will come to you if you invite him for some chit chat.You are making a big fool of yourself by this open war with the President,when we all know that you attend council meeting with the President every month and you have access to the President.You are supposed to be an Elder State's Man,please try to behave like one.

“DEAR CHIEF OBASANJO, SIR NO DISRESPECT! BUT, BEFORE YOU POINT YOUR FINGER AT JONATHAN PLEASE FIRST TAKE A GOOD LOOK INTO THE MIRROR. YOU LAID AND POSITIONED A CORRUPT, POLLUTED, HOPELESS, UNRESPONSIVE, IRRESPONSIBLE, SENSELESS, COLD AND INHUMANE FOUNDATION WHICH JONATHAN IS BUILDING UPON. WHAT’S THE BASIS FOR YOUR COMPLAIN? SIR, TO USE A THIEF TO GO AFTER ANOTHER THIEF IS ILLOGICAL, NONSENSICAL AND IRRATIONAL. WE PRETEND TO HAVE DEMOCRACY IN NIGERIA WHILE WHAT WE ACTUALLY HAVE IS AN ORGANIZED RIGID CIVIL RULE”
