Obasanjo’s letter to Buhari timely – Reuben Abati

Reuben Abati, a former Special Adviser to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan on Media and Publicity has described the statement by former president, Olusegun Obasanjo that President Muhammadu Buhari should not recontest in 2019 as timely.

Obasanjo had yesterday in a lengthy letter written to the President listed reasons Buhari should not think of re-election in 2019.

Reacting, Abati speaking on Channels Tv on Tuesday night said Obasanjo's statement reflects like mind of many Nigerians against the APC administration.

He, however, noted that the letter lacked an apology to Nigerians as the former president was one of those who voted for the 'change' administration.

"It's probably the most important subject of the day. Its been the main subject that everyone is discussing and that should be understandable considering the stature, the capacity, the influence of the author of the letter.

"Before now, many Nigerians had been waiting on the former president Olusegun Obasanjo to say something about this administration and he has chosen his time very well to come out and do a full assessment of the administration so far.

"If you look at that letter it drips with frustration, disappointment, even regret. The only thing president Obasanjo does not do in that letter is to apologise to Nigerians but he admitted that he was part of the efforts to bring about change in 2015 and he not only supported the incumbent president, he also voted for him and now he says he is disappointed.

"The letter probably reflects certain levels of consensus within society because you know of late, a lot of people have been saying some of the things that president Obasanjo said in that letter but coming from Obasanjo, those statements acquire a special significance and resonance both locally and I believe, internationally," he said.
