Banditry: ‘Wake up to your responsibilities’ — Obasanjo to Buhari

Ø  Urges youths to make it uncomfortable for old leaders to remain in govt. 

Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has expressed concern that banditry is happening in the North-West region of the country, where President Muhammadu Buhari hails from.

The ex-president, who spoke on Sunday in a virtual interview with an academic and historian, Toyin Falola, asked the president to wake up and fight banditry and other sundry crimes especially in the northern part of the country.

Speaking further, the ex-president said some governors are now in a state of hopelessness due to the president’s way of handling the insecurity in the country.

Obasanjo also charged Nigerian youths to make it uncomfortable for old leaders to remain in government. The former president, who admitted that his generation did a lot of wrong, apologised to the youths, noting that things are bad in the country, but said Nigeria’s fortune might change when they step-up.
