- Nigerians have been advised not to have any more expectations from President Muhammadu Buhari
- This advice was given by former president Olusegun Obasanjo who spoke at a retreat in federal capital territory, Abuja
- According to him, expecting President Muhammadu Buhari to do anything more than what he has done will be fruitless
A message has been sent to Nigerians over President Muhammadu Buhari. The message was sent by former president Olusegun Obasanjo.
According to Obasanjo, Nigerians who still believe that Buhari has anything to offer the country again should perish such thoughts.
He says expecting Buhari to do anything more than what he has done is akin to beating a dead horse, Daily Trust reports.
Obasanjo made this known when he spoke in Abuja Monday, December 13, at a retreat on inclusive security organized by the Global Peace Foundation and Vision Africa.

“The truth is this: President Buhari has done his best. That is what he can do. If we are expecting anything more than what he has done or what he is doing, that means we’re whipping a dead horse and there is no need.
“Then, where do we go from here? We cannot fold our hands. I believe that is part of what we’re doing here and what we continue to be doing. How do we prepare for post-Buhari? Buhari has done his best. My prayer is that God will spare his life to see his term through.
“But what should we do to make post-Buhari better than what we have now? That is our responsibility now, because it concerns all of us.”
Going further, Obasanjo said that military action alone would not effectively end the insurgency in the country.
“People talk of political will, but I talk of political action. Political will is not enough. It must be matched by political action.
“The problem of insurgency will not go away, if all we are using is the ‘stick’ (military action). We may suppress it, and keep it down a bit, but we have to use ‘carrot and stick’ together to effectively tackle the problems."
