I Don't Agree With OBJ on Coalition - Segun Sowunmi

…Says, Buhari has failed woefully 

 …Slams Tinubu, Fashola , Ogbe, others

A renowned human rights activist, Politician and public commentator, Segun Showunmi has thrown his weight behind the recent “Special Statement” released to the public by the former Nigeria President, Chief (Dr.) Olusegun Obasanjo warning President Muhammadu Buhari against his re-election bid in 2019 and poor performance in office since May 29, 2015, saluting the uncommon courage of the former President to always speak the truth to the power that be in the land without entertaining hypocrisy.

He however called on Chief Obasanjo to use his connection in the international community to report the flaws of the present administration in Nigeria to the comity of nations in order to join hands together, to stop the re-election bid of President Buhari in 2019 for the sake of the Nigeria masses, urging Obasanjo not to forget to deliver his “Special Statement” to the African leaders in Addis Ababa,Ethiopia during the ongoing  30th Ordinary Session of the Assembly of Heads of States and Government of the African Union (AU). He also urge the ex president to exercise more patient with the People's Democratic Party instead of having hope in National Coalition after the failure of the All Progressive Congress APC as a party. 

Segun Showunmi, while commending Cheif Olusegun Obasanjo for capturing the minds of Nigerians in the Special Statement, insisting that President Buhari led All Progressives Congress (APC) Federal Government has failed woefully in all areas of governance in the country, urging Buhari to heed the advice being given to him on 2019 Presidential re-election bid by Obasanjo.

Speaking on Obasanjo’s “Special Statement” on Friday, At a courtesy visitation of National Association of Nigerian Bloggers NANB in his house in Abeokuta, Ogun state, he saw it as a good and welcome development to checkmate the misgovernance of ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in the country, condemning those who were abusing Obasanjo over the action and tagged them as enemies of Nigeria masses. He faulted Buhari led administration for failing to appoint young intellect to head ministries but rather choose aged Audu Ogbe among other ministers who are ill brains who have fresh brains and what it takes to serve their country. 

According to him, “All the contents in the Dr. Olusegun Obasanjo’s Special Statement are the statement of facts. After using the Babatunde Fashola as a critical example with three different portfolios where we have brains. 

How is Fashola qualified to hold Three different portfolios? Because he is a lawyer?  Or what?  I seems not to understand this government blueprint anymore, a government which it's promises are too tremendous to be fulfilled, a government which was built on lies and propaganda.

A government which released the name of the death, sick and dying as it's board members two and half years in government and still take months to review same list, a government which met dollar at 160 and turned it to 370 to naira, is that a working government? Segun Showunmi.

If Nigerians fail to stop President Buhari in 2019, President Buhari might stop the success, progress, development and future of Nigerians at home and abroad. It is will be an expression of cowardice if Asiwaju Bola Tinubu failed to be responsible for the death of every Yoruba's that dies in the hands of the deadly fulani herdsmen, bokoharam and others because he was the one that led southwest to vote massively for President Mohammed Buhari in 2015 election. 

The public commentator who strongly condemned the grave injustice and nepotism of highest order that pervaded the present administration, advising Chief Obasanjo to stop supporting any incompetent personality like President Buhari as Presidential candidate in the future polls. 

Sowunmi who recalled that the then APC presidential candidate, General Muhammadu Buhari on March4th, 2015, had described former President Olusegun Obasanjo as a courageous patriot who tells the truth to power when he is convinced that leaders are going wrong, in a statement he issued on the occasion of Obasanjos’s birthday, adding that “the former president is a nationalist whose commitment to democracy and good governance are worthy of recognition and praise”

He then warned Mr. Itse Sagay, Mr. Orji Uzor Kalu and others who were throwing stone of blames on Chief Obasanjo for telling President Buhari the home truth in respect of 2019 Presidential election, to tender unreserved apology to former President Obasanjo, going by the description of Obasanjo by Buhari himself, before the responsible and responsive Nigerians at home and Diaspora would lower their anatomical contort in the public.

He further described Sagay, Tinubu, Kalu and their cohorts as bird of the same feather that flocks together by throwing the majority and masses interest into the wind, adding that some of them have skeleton in their cupboard which they are using Buhari’s Presidency to cover their atrocities, which is opened to all and sundry. 

It is astonishing that despite the unwanton killings of innocent Nigerians by Fulani herdsmen, long queues of Nigerians at the filling stations upon 120 percent increment of the motor spirit, geometrical loss of jobs, disobedience to Court order, hike in prices of food stuff, selecting and bias anti-corruption fight, unable to have grip of office and lack of respect for democratic norms and values by running a clueless government which plunged Nigeria into the social -economic and political problems, some selfish politicians who are looking for political survival and unnecessary recognition, still calling on President Buhari to re-contest in 2019” Segun Showunmi submitted.
