FROM IGNATIUS OKPARA, Umuahia – The youth wing of the apex Igbo umbrella body, the Ohanaeze Youth Council, OYC has warned former President Olusegun Obasanjo over his consistent negative remarks against President Goodluck Jonathan.
Obasanjo, had for some time now launch a protracted media attack on Jonathan, accusing the president of shifting the general polls dates because he was afraid of defeat.
OYC also warned the ex- president to stop inciting Nigerians against the President, who, according to them, “has dwarfed the achievements of all former Nigerian leaders.”
Speaking with newsmen in Umuahia, Sunday National President of OYC, Okechukwu Isiguzoro, said “Obasanjo should stop fanning the embers of war through his unguarded utterances against a sitting President.”
He accused Obasanjo of plotting, in connivance with some undemocratic elements, to topple Jonathan’s government through inciting comments, warning that any attempt to derail Nigeria’s democracy would be resisted.
“Obasanjo is a disappointment to democracy.
“He should not plunge Nigeria into another civil war through his hate remarks against Jonathan,” he said.
