Olusegun Obasanjo's reaction to President Mohammadu Buhari's rumoured death

Olusegun Obasanjo's reaction to President Mohammadu Buhari's rumoured death

Since when president Buhari traveled to London, rumours have it that the president is dead or very ill but former president, Chief Olusegun Obansanjo has criticized the action by Nigerians.

Bellow are key points from Former president Chief Olusegun Obasanjo.

- Chief Olusegun Obasanjo asked Nigerians to pray for Buhari

- The former president condemned those wishing Buhari death

- He noted that he has been a victim of such in the past

Chief Olusegun Obasanjo describes those who are wishing the president death as wicked and he has also said that prayer's should be done as regards the President's health instead of wishing him death.
The Former president has asked those that have wished buhari dead to seek forgiveness.

The Punch reports that Kehinde Akinyemi who is the media aide to Obasanjo issued a statement on Friday, January 3 quoting the former president who said, "instead of wishing Buhari dead, Nigerians should pray for him to be well and return to Nigeria".

He said: “If you don’t like him, wait for another election, not going about to say he is dead. No matter his health situation, we should pray for him to recover quick and come back more stronger and better.

“For anyone wishing him dead, such person or group of persons are callous, wicked and treacherous.
“I was also rumoured to have died almost 12 times. I don’t know what they derive from doing so, but, they should seek for forgiveness.

“Even if we know that the President is sick, he is in a better position to know what to say or what to do and not wishing him dead. We should just stop politicising everything, especially with the elderly in the country.”

Above are quotations from the former president in the person of Chief Olusegun Obasanjo and I totally agree with Chief Olusegun Obasanjo on this issue and instead of Nigerians to keep on spreading false rumours, they should pray for Mr President to return to Nigeria Strong, healthy and even better.
