Former President, Olusegun Obasanjo has set an agenda for Nigeria’s President-elect Asiwaju Bola Tinubu on what to do in order to reunite Nigeria after the divisiveness the 2023 elections brought.
Olusegun Obasanjo said this when he spoke at a Conference in Abuja, which was organised by Nextier and the Ibadan School of Governance and Public Policy.
The conference has the theme: “From Elections to Governance and Performance.”
Obasanjo said the Tinubu’s government must work to facilitate national moral rearmament and reconciliation.
In his words, the division during the 2023 general elections brought was massive and that it was only the facilitation of national moral rearmament and reconciliation, that had the potential to bring about healing and to assuage Nigerian youths who were angered by the shortcomings of the elections.
The former president stated that going by the way things are right now, the incoming government must think out of the box in a bid to salvage the nation. lamenting that the nation’s economy had been in the doldrum, coupled with huge national debt burden under President Muhammadu Buhari administration.
Obasanjo added that the incoming government must have the political will and action, as well as administrative efforts, to reform the public service, and turn it into a capability-ready unit.
According to him, said that he is too old now to keep quiet when things are going hellwire in the country. “too old to keep quiet” and would continue to speak out on national issues.
