Obasanjo’s public letter on insecurity ‘unpatriotic’ – Buhari

118
President Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday unleashed a tirade against former President Olusegun Obasanjo and other critics of the security situation in the country.

According to him, every country around the world are facing one security challenge or the other.

President Buhari said critics of insecurity in the country are not patriotic.

He pointed out that there are new challenges of banditry and kidnapping around the globe.

Former President Olusegun Obasanjo Monday wrote an open letter rebuking the Buhari administration over the insecurity in the country.

“To be explicit and without equivocation, Mr. President and General, I am deeply worried about four avoidable calamities:. abandoning  Nigeria  into the hands of criminals who are  all being suspected, rightly or wrongly, as  Fulanis and terrorists of Boko Haram  type, Obasanjo said.

“Spontaneous  or planned reprisal attacks against Fulanis which  may inadvertently or advertently mushroom into  pogrom or Rwanda-type genocide that we did not believe could happen and yet it happened.

“Similar attacks against any other tribe or ethnic group anywhere in the country initiated  by rumours, fears, intimidation and revenge capable of leading to pogrom;

“Violent uprising  beginning  from one section  of the country  and spreading  quickly  to other areas  and leading to dismemberment  of the  country.”
