National Chairman and Presidential aspirant under the platform of the National Action Council (NAC), Dr. Olopade Agoro on Friday declared that former President Olusegun Obasanjo is the main political problem of Nigeria.
Agoro, while addressing a press conference at his Apata, lbadan residence also described Obasanjo’s Coalition for Nigeria Movement (CNM) as “Coalition of Nigerian Muguns”.
The NAC National Chairman said only those who could not understand Obasanjo’s antics to perpetually dominate the Nigerian politics are buying into the idea of his CNM.
He, however, challenged Obasanjo to publish details of the 3 million people he claimed had registered with the CNM.
Agoro said, “Obasanjo is the problem of Nigeria. He brought late Yar’Adua and failed; he also brought Jonathan and failed, he actively supported President Muhammadu Buhari, who has now disappointed Nigerians.
“Obasanjo is out again to take Nigerians on a ride with the coalition of Nigerian Muguns that he is packaging. He said he has gathered the list of 3 million Nigerians. I am challenging him to publish the list of the 3 million Nigerians who have joined his coalition before next week Tuesday.
“Obasanjo rode to the top in his political career. But it appears that his ride has no bus stop and brake. He does not know where to stop.”
Agoro suggested that Obasanjo, after his presidency should have toed the path of honor like late Nelson Mandela, by quitting partisan politics.
He said, “Have you heard the immediate past President of the United States, Barack Obama, criticising his successor, Donald Trump, like Obasanjo has been doing since 1999?.”
Speaking further on the state of the nation, Agoro said both the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) do not mean well for Nigerians.
He revealed that he decided to contest the 2019 presidential election to repair all the damages done to the country by both PDP and APC.
