Boko Haram wax stronger over 12yrs--- Obasanjo

Olusegun Obasanjo

Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has disclosed that failure to address the matter of restructuring now by Nigerian government might lead to grave consequences.

The ex-president also lamented the increasing rate of insecurity in the country, saying Boko Haram had continued to wax stronger over 12 years.

He spoke in Lagos on Saturday at the first memorial lecture of the founder of Oodua People’s Congress, Dr Fredrick Fasehun, adding that “Nigeria could not afford to be plunged into another war at this time because such might not be easy to win.”

Obasanjo said: “When I was elected President the agitation was true federalism but now it is restructuring. If we don’t address it they may go from restructuring to self-determination and this will be a serious problem.

“If Boko Haram can get external support, any group that decided to go will get support from within and outside. So we must address the issue now.”

The language we are using to address ourselves across the region now is uncouth and it must not continue

“I will continue to fight for Nigeria’s unity until I die. But this fight is not to make my children and my race second class citizens.

Ti owo o ba se san a ka leri ( If you can no longer swing your hand, then you put it on your head),” he said.
