Obasanjo: Wishing Buhari dead is wicked

Former President, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo,
has described those behind the rumoured
death of President Muhammadu Buhari as,
not only wicked, but also callous and

A statement by his media aide, Kehinde
Akinyemi, in Abeokuta yesterday quoted the
former President as saying, “instead of
embarking on such worrisome declaration, all
that the President needs are our prayers and
best wishes, which will ginger his morale to
come back much stronger and better.”

Obasanjo who cautioned against
“politicisation of every situation” in the
country, recalled that he had also been a
victim of such death rumour while in office as
the President, saying, “no normal human
being would wish an elderly person dead,
irrespective of their differences.”

“If you don’t like him (President), wait for
another election and not go about saying he
is dead. No matter his health situation, we
should pray for him to recover quickly and
come back much stronger and better.

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

Obasanjo added: “I was also rumoured to
have died almost 12 times. I don’t know what
they derive from doing so, but they should
seek for forgiveness. We should just stop
politicizing everything, especially with issues
concerning the elderly in the country.”

The former President travelled to Britain on
January 19 for a short holiday, but since last
week, there have been speculations,
especially in the social media that he had
passed on, which has turned out to be false.
