Obasanjo writes 18-page letter to President Jonathan

Premium Times claims to have obtained an 18-page letter written by an angry and frustrated former president Olusegun Obasanjo to president Jonathan, accusing the current president of 'ineptitude and of taking actions calculated at destroying Nigeria.'
“Nigeria is bleeding and the hemorrhage must be stopped,” Mr. Obasanjo said in the 18-page letter titled “Before it is too late” dated December 2, 2013
In the letter Obasanjo said President Jonathan has 'failed to deliver on his promises to Nigerians, stem corruption, promote national unity and strengthen national security.'

From Premium Times

He said in the letter titled that rather than take steps to advance Nigeria’s interest and up the standards of living of Nigerians, Mr. Jonathan had betrayed God and the Nigerian people that brought him to power, and has been pursuing selfish personal and political interests based on advice he receives from “self-centred aides”.

In the detailed letter, dripping of anger , frustration and what appears a genuine concern to rescue a nation on the brink, Mr. Obasanjo lamented that Mr. Jonathan had become terribly divisive and clannish, destroying his own party, polarizing the country along regional and religious lines and ridiculing Nigeria in the comity of nations.

Without mincing words, Mr. Obasanjo blamed Mr. Jonathan for the crises tearing the ruling Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, apart.

He said apart from using party chairman Bamanga Tukur to cause multiple crises and divide the ranks of the party, the president’s failure to keep a promise he made not to seek a second term is also generating tension within the ruling party.
“It would be unfair to continue to level full blames on the Chairman (Tukur) for all that goes wrong with the party,” Mr. Obasanjo said. “The chairman is playing the tune dictated by the paymaster (Jonathan). But the paymaster is acting for a definitive purpose for which deceit and deception seem to be the major ingredients.

“Up till two months ago, Mr. President, you told me that you have not told anybody that you would contest in 2015. I quickly pointed out to you that the signs and the measures on the ground do not tally with your statement. You said the same to one other person who shared his observation with me. And only a fool would believe that statement you made to me judging by what is going on. I must say it is not ingenious. You may wish to pursue a more credible and more honorable path.”
The former President said Mr. Jonathan told him before the 2011 election he would not seek a second term, and made the same promise to governors, party stakeholders and Nigerians.

The president’s refusal to keep that promise cast him as a man without honour, Mr. Obasanjo said.
Saying it would be “fatally morally flawed” for Mr. Jonathan to contest in 2015, Mr. Obasanjo added, “As a leader, two things you must cherish and hold dear among others are trust and honour both of which are important ingredients of character. I will want to see anyone in the Office of the Presidency of Nigeria as a man or woman who can be trusted, a person of honour in his words and character.”
Mr. Obasanjo also accused Mr. Jonathan of anti-party conducts – supporting opposition parties’ candidates in governorship elections in Lagos, Ondo, Edo and Anambra states at the detriment of PDP’s own candidates –, and of pitting party members against one another.

Saying the President had failed to address the underlying causes of the Boko Haram menace, Mr. Obasanjo urged Mr. Jonathan to adopt a carrot and stick approach in dealing with the insurgency explaining that “conventional military actions based on standard phases of military operations alone will not permanently and effectively deal with the issue of Boko Haram”.

Mr. Obasanjo also tackled Mr. Jonathan for allegedly being clannish. “For you to allow yourself to be “possessed”, so to say, to the exclusion of most of the rest of Nigerians as an “Ijaw man” is a mistake that should never have been allowed to happen. Yes, you have to be born in one part of Nigeria to be Nigerian if not naturalized but the Nigerian President must be above ethnic factionalism. And those who prop you up as of, and for ‘Ijaw nation’ are not your friends genuinely, not friends of Nigeria nor friends of ‘Ijaw nation’ they tout about.

“To allow or tacitly encourage people of ‘Ijaw nation’ to throw insults on other Nigerians from other parts of the country and threaten fire and brimstone to protect your interest as an Ijaw man is myopic and your not openly quieting them is even more unfortunate.

Two Ijaw men, ex-militant Mujahid Dokubo-Asari, and a former federal commissioner for information, Edwin Clark, who carries himself around as the political godfather of the president, are known to talk down on people opposed to the president.

Mr. Obasanjo also accused Mr. Jonathan of placing over 1000 Nigerians on political watch list and “training snipers and other armed personnel secretly and clandestinely acquiring weapons to match for political purposes like Abacha and training them where Abacha trained his killers”.

He wondered why the Presidency was providing assistance for a murderer to evade justice.
“Presidential assistance for a murderer to evade justice and presidential delegation to welcome him home can only be in bad taste generally but particularly to the family of his victim,” Mr. Obasanjo said. “Assisting criminals to evade justice cannot be part of the job of the presidency. Or, as it is viwed in some quarters, is he being recruited to do for you what he had done for Abacha in the past? Hopefully, he should have learned his lesson. Let us continue to watch.”

Mr. Obasanjo did not mention the name of the murderer he accused the President of protecting but he seems to be referring to Hamza Al-Mustapha, a former security aide to late Head of State, General Sani Abacha, who is facing trial for allegedly masterminding the killing of Kudirat Abiola, the wife of Moshood Abiola, the winner of the annulled 1993 presidential election.

Mr. Al-Mustapha was freed by the appeal court in July but the Lagos state government has since appealed the judgment at the Supreme Court.

The former President also called on the National Assembly to rise up and take decisive action over the recent allegation in the country that the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation failed to remit billions of dollars in proceeds of crude oil sales to the federation account.
“This allegation will not fly away by non-action, cover-up, denial or bribing possible investigators,” Mr. Obasanjo told the President. “Please deal with this allegation transparently and let the truth be known.

“The dramatis personae in this allegation and who they are working for will one day be public knowledge. Those who know are watching if the National Assembly will not be accomplice in the heinous crime and naked grand corruption. May God grant you the grace for at least one effective corrective action against high corruption which seems to stink all around you in your government.”
Mr. Obasanjo said he wrote the letter in the national interest, saying nothing, at this stage of his life, would prevent him from standing up for whatever he considers to be in the best interest of Nigeria, Africa and the world.

He said he was ready for whatever backlash his letter would provoke from the presidency.
“Knowing what happens around you most of which you know of and condone or deny, this letter will proke cacophony from hired and unhired attackers but I will maintain my serenity because by this letter, I have done my duty to you as I have always done, to your government, to the party, PDP, and to our country, Nigeria…,” Mr. Obasanjo said.

“I have passed the stage of being flattered, intimidated, threatened, frightened, induced or bought… Death is the end of all human beings and may it come when God wills it to come

The president’s refusal to keep that promise cast him as a man without honour, Mr. Obasanjo said.
Saying it would be “fatally morally flawed” for Mr. Jonathan to contest in 2015, Mr. Obasanjo added, “As a leader, two things you must cherish and hold dear among others are trust and honour both of which are important ingredients of character. I will want to see anyone in the Office of the Presidency of Nigeria as a man or woman who can be trusted, a person of honour in his words and character.”

Saying the President had failed to address the underlying causes of the Boko Haram menace, Mr. Obasanjo urged Mr. Jonathan to adopt a carrot and stick approach in dealing with the insurgency explaining that “conventional military actions based on standard phases of military operations alone will not permanently and effectively deal with the issue of Boko Haram”.

Please can someone advise this old man called Obasanjo to go and sit down..He was given 8 years without stress to address Nigerian problems but what did he do,he went for failed Third term bid..He obasanjo is bitter and angry that he has been sidelined from parading himself at the corridors of power at any time he wants..On the boko haram ,where was Obasanjo in 2002 when this group started their activities under the very watch eyes of Ali modu sheriff the former governor of Borno state..Ali modu sheriff went further to make Yusuf his special adviser,Were was Obj as commander in chief when all these atrocities were going on? Can Mr Obasanjo tell us what happened to NITEL,NIGERIA AIRWAYS ,NIGERIAN PORT AUTHORITY? Can MR obasanjo tell us what happened to haliburton scandal,seimens scandal,the Abacha returned loots? Etc..He who lives in a glass house should not throw stone..He who wants equity should come with a clean hand...

In the end,only GEJ would suffer it. He better wakes up or pray to the mighty Lord that the next president is not a strict & disciplined person. If the next president is an unbiased disciplinarian & GEJ is tried for cover-up & shielding of corrupt people & the promotion of corruption in government & then sentenced to some kinda punishment,only him would serve it. All these his sycophant aides & "lovers" who are lying to him today that he's doing well won't be there serving with him.

Pot calling kettle black. What did obasanjo do with his 8 yrs in office?? He increased fuel 8 times from 22 naira to 56 naira. He went to odi to wipe out a whole village, he permitted sharia law in the north knowing fully well that nigerian constitution never allows such. He had ribadu witch hunt his political enemies, eg atiku, alayamesia, ibori, ngige, dariye, gbenga daniel etc. He employed chris uba to go and kidnapp a sitting governor.his daughter was implicated in the siemens scandal, what did he do?? Obasanjo should go and sit down and enjoy his stolen wealth. He is a thief and an unforgiving man. A man that slept with his son's wife.he should go and take several sits pls, he is worse than jonathan.

Love him or hate him, I've always admired obasanjo. He's truly a great leader. He has said it all. In one letter, he has pointed out the main flaws of this country. I hope the letter thing is true. It's not as if GEJ would do anything about it, he's too much of an idiot to do so. He has the power to tackle corruption yet he does nothing, infact he is the leader of them all. My heart bleeds for this country because it is beyond saving. Unless God intervenes.

Regardless of President Obasanjo's shortcomings, he is still the Best president Nigeria has ever had. With due respect to the office of the president, GEJ is a disaster to this country. His blind ambition is going to plunge this country into avoidable crises. He is the definition of everything negative in a president . Through his utterances and body language, especially one old man who claims to be his political godfather, and one ex militant, there utterances are capable of dividing the country. He sees himself as an ijaw president, instead of a Nigerian president.
The sycophants around him are also terrible, shameless people, who are only thinking of there pocket, and not the future of this country.
2015, Nigerians . The ball is in your.court. Change!

Damn! This letter is damning! I mean, I have never been a fan of GEJ but if what is stated in this letter is true, then Nigeria is ruled but unquestionably the most corrupt leader in its history. Only this morning I read Sanusi's appeal to the national assembly about the 8 trillion naira that has gone missing, money that NNPC failed to remit to CBN! I knew this administration was corrupt, especially with how quick they sweep cases of corruption under the carpet, but wow! GEJ is a kingpin of all corrupt leaders. His mumu face was just a front.

The spirit of Madiba is moving. It has started pushing people to start telling the truth and who best to say it if not our former President to the current one. After hearing all the encomiums on Nelson Mandela, President Obasanjo probably wants to make amends of his past by now telling the truth so that when he dies, it will be said of him that he tried to correct the wrongs of his successor. Good job Presido!!!

Jonathan worse president ever, at least Obasanjo wrote letter. Can GEJ write such a coherent letter. His speeches are disjointed and childish. I'm sure he must have listened with awe when likes of Obama spoke in South Africa. The Lord will intervene for the poor man in nigeria. .

GEJ is a good man, but lack the requisite knowledge of Nigerian history, polity and the mathematics involve in good governance. Honestly his actions and decisions really baffles me. My country is grappling with the effects of terrorism/insecurity, yet no minister of defence. The education sector is in quagmire, yet no active minister of education, but a supervising one. Well, I had always believed in the dictum that says " A lion leading a million sheep is better than a sheep leading a million lions".

Its gotten so worse that anytime anybody is accused of corruption, some disgruntled aides of the president will turn it into tribal war. During OBJs era a lot of heads rolled due to the anti-curruption campaign of those days starting with people from his region; S.M Afolabi(National I.D card scam), Tafa Balogun(former IG), Bode George(NPA scam), Sunday Einhdero, Chief Babalola&Femi Fani Kayode(former Ministers of Aviation)... Nobody raised alarm of tribal victimization because the Yorubas don't condole corruption even if you're the son of a king but under GEJs administration tribal sentiments has been at its peak when people are accused of corruption esp. from the SE of the country. GEJ only claims to fight corruption on paper. It's even a big dent on the president that he still has someone like Stella Oduah as a cabinet minister after the body of allegations against her. This is thesame President who didn't waste time in removing the Court of Appeal President(Justice Ayo Salami) just because he wasn't working for the interest of his party. Jonathans tenure will go down to be the most corrupt in the history of this country. How did we get here??!! I weep for this country!!!

Obasanjo should first of all remove the wood in his eyes before he tells other people to remove theirs.We are all living witnesses to what happenened in Anambra State in 2003 when Eselu,an Obasanjo thug overthrew a sittng governor simply because he refused to sign away the Anambra treasury to him.He was shielded from prosecution by Obasanjo.It was during his regime that 16 billion dollars was spent on power projects without result,and NNPC's accounts not audited.It was this same tyrant that forced Ogbeh to resign as PDP's chairman at gunpoint,committed genocides at Odi and Zaki-biam and called a clergyman an idiot.Furthermore,it was this same Obasnjo that organised the worst elections in the history of Nigeria (2003 and 2007),and even bribed the National Assembly members to make him eligible for a third term.Agreed that President Jonathan has his shortcomings,but he has shown that he is a team player that is willing to learn.No sitting president has faced this barrage of problems since his inception.The Boko Haram debacle is capable of making any leader to loose focus.But he was able to remain calm and focused on the problem at hand.

Your house is burning and you're busy abusing the person shouting "FIRE" instead of fighting the fire; simply because you believe the person shouting was part of the people who caused the fire. That's foolishness!

What message will our young people convey as they eat breakfast before heading off to school every morning, if companies start selecting academic superstars to endorse their products, put people of intellect on their cereal boxes instead of athletes and entertainers. But we can bet that our society's survival will depend more on intellectual than on athletic prowess or entertainment. What do you think?

Those who are hailing Obasanjo for writing this trash, are you kids in this country? Are you so forgetful? Obasanjo is behaving his true self: Unreliable, self-conceited, crafty, Mr know-all, coward, usurper, attention seeker, unforgiving, irreverent, demagogue, etc.... etc. You may add to the list.

One Idiot wrote "I swear, I swear if jonathan no win 2015n we will divide this country" ... Who says that? Its common knowledge that GEJ is funding his own terror group via Asari. And them someone is threatening. GEJ will be betrayed by his own, we heard he has stomach ache, when he start to cough blood the end will be near. People think that its by power and wheeling and dealing. Our nation is where it is due to stinky attitutes
