A civil society organisation is protesting the recent attack on President Buhari by Olusegun Obasanjo in Lagos – The organization accused Obasanjo of nursing plans to install an interim government against the will of the people .
Appealing to the international community, the group said Obasanjo, Atiku Abubakar and other members of the opposition should be called to order before they sink the nation A group of protesters have taken to the streets of Lagos over the recent attack on President Muhammadu Buhari. The protesters in their scores accused former president Olusegun Obasanjo of plans to install an interim government against the will of the people.
The individuals under the aegis of Coalition for Defence of Democracy in Nigeria (CDDN) also called on the federal government to drop its tolerant attitude and put the pressure on Obasanjo to immediately call off all the attacks that are planned against the interests of Nigeria Speaking on behalf of the CDDN, Rachel Okpara, the executive director of the group further appealed to the international community to call Obasanjo, Atiku Abubakar and other members of the opposition to order before they sink the nation.
Okpara said: “We are telling the world that there is a credible intelligence that a former president, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo is the one that hatched the plan to destroy the country in conjunction with his political allies.”
Okpara said that Obasanjo’s “Points of Concern and Action” has allegedly been confirmed as intended to incite Nigerians as a precursor to the spate of violence that his co-planners will unleash on the country.
“We are also asserting that more than the emergence of an interim government that the federal government refers to, Obasanjo, Atiku Abubakar who is the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate and other opposition elements have their sight on an outright coup to overthrow Nigeria’s democracy.
“It is for this reason that Obasanjo returned to his vomit after vowing that God will never forgive him if he ever supported Atiku. “CDDN is not going to adopt the tolerant indifference that the federal government is showing to a threat of this magnitude, which with all certainty will throw the nation into chaos.
“The federal government might be worried about being described as clamping down on dissent and the opposition but we have no such political tightrope balancing to do. We see things from the perspective of the immediate and long term impact on citizens. The safety of Nigerians is superior to whatever offices could be won or lost by officials of the federal government,” Okpara added.
