- Ameh Ebute a former senate president has Olusegun Obasanjo and leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) of plotting to ruin Nigeria
- The former Senator called on Nigerians to rise up to the challenge of confronting and subduing unpatriotic, corrupt and selfish past political office
- Ebute said such move by the citizens would help save Nigeria from total collapse
A former Senate president, Ameh Ebute, has raised an alarm over the alleged alliance between ex-president Olusegun Obasanjo and leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Ebute said the "unholy union Obasanjo and leadership of the PDP would kill the entity called Nigeria."
Speaking during a press briefing in Abuja on Tuesday, February 19, Ebute who lead the Congress for Patriotic Citizens (CPC) called on Nigerians to rise up to the challenge of confronting and subduing unpatriotic, corrupt and selfish past political office.
He said such move by the citizens would help save Nigeria from total collapse.
Stating that Obasanjo is one of the leaders who benefitted from the country, Ebute said it is unfortunate to understand, the alliance to kill Nigeria is spearheaded and supervised such a personality.
"To the best of our knowledge, Chief Obasanjo abused every opportunity he had to set Nigeria on a speedy and progressive path. His leadership years are ingloriously recounted by Nigerians with disdain and contempt for his personality," Ebute said.
"On the reverse, ordinary Nigerians recall fondly and gleefully President Buhari’s leadership of Nigeria at every era as attested now.
We find it completely distasteful, Obasanjo’s present gang-up and conspiracy against Nigeria. What OBJ and co have planned is beyond imagination. Every word of Obasanjo from his first open letter to the last smacks of a shameful and dishonorable outing from an elder statesman.
We cannot understand Obasanjo anymore. We do not know what he implies when he accuses INEC of “recruiting collation officers who are already awarding results based on their projects to actualise the perpetuation agenda in which the people will not matter and the votes will not count.” As former President of Nigeria, isn’t this statement too fluid?
Even if Chief Obasanjo hates Buhari, hatchet jobs like this one as contained in his recent letter should be left for his 'boys.’ Even the loquacious Femi Fani Kayode or Tony Omokri cannot abuse their already battered reputation in public in this disgraceful manner," Ebute added.

He further urged all Nigerians to rise up to the challenge of confronting and subduing unpatriotic, corrupt and selfish past political office holders.
He said the people have more faith in the progress of Nigeria under a Buhari's Presidency than an Atiku Abubakar.
"We have sighted progress and national development under a patriotic leader and nationalist like President Buhari.
"There is no way Obasanjo can publicly announce his retirement in politics and sneak back through the back door in any unholy alliance with dark forces to destroy Nigeria.
Like Gen. Bulbwa Marwa (rtd) did by rallying nearly 100 retired Military Generals in support of President Buhari, we shall also assemble all elder statesmen across the country to come to the rescue of Nigeria, bearing in mind that selfish individuals like Obasanjo or any political party or group of persons don’t own Nigeria. All Nigerian citizens must wake up to uphold the virtues of leaders who can stand for the country like Buhari," Ebute concluded.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that some Nigerians in diaspora have accused a former president Olusegun Obasanjo of desperation and retarding Nigeria from desired growth and progress.
These Nigerians under the aegis of AriseNigeria, a group of Concerned Nigerians in the Diaspora alleged that the former president is desperate in his bid to install a president in Nigeria through the backdoor.
In a communique issued by the group after an emergency meeting to review the state of affairs in Nigeria, AriseNigeria frowned at the new relationship between Obasanjo and leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
The communiqué signed by its chairman., Philip Idaewor and endorsed by coordinators of AriseNigeria worldwide.
