Buhari: Those Wishing Him Dead Callous, Wicked, Treacherous – Obasanjo

By Teddy Nwanunobi

Abuja (Sundiata Post) –  Former President, Olusegun Obasanjo, on Friday, described those behind the rumored death of President Muhammadu Buhari as “wicked, callous and treacherous”.

Obasanjo, who declared that what Buhari needs now are Nigeria’s “prayers and best wishes”, recalled that he “was also rumored to have died almost 12 times”, while he was in office as the President.

He, however, advised those behind the rumoured death of Buhari to “wait for another election”, if they do not like him.

Obasanjo’s reaction was contained in a statement issued by his Media Aide, in Abeokuta, Ogun State.

He said instead of embarking on such “worrisome” declaration, all that the President needed “are our prayers and best wishes, which will ginger his morale to come back more stronger and better”.

Obasanjo also cautioned against politicisation of every situation in the country.

“No normal human being will wish an elderly person dead, irrespective of their differences.

“If you don’t like him, wait for another election, not going about to say he is dead. No matter his health situation, we should pray for him to recover quick and come back more stronger and better.

“For anyone wishing him dead, such person or group of persons are callous, wicked and treacherous.

“I was also rumored to have died almost 12 times. I don’t know what they derive from doing so; but they should seek for forgiveness.

“Even if we know that the President is sick, he is in a better position to know what to say or what to do, and not wishing him dead. We should just stop politicising everything, especially with the elderly in the country,” the former President said.

It would be recalled that a section of the social media had claimed that Buhari had died in a London hospital, following his illness last week.

Buhari, who had travelled to London on a 10-day vacation, is expected back in the country next week Monday.
