Former President of Nigeria, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo has revealed how the action of President Muhammadu Buhari reportedly made the Boko Haram terrorists stronger in their attacks.
Obasanjo alleged that the present government had empowered the terrorists with the ransoms it paid which it denied. He said the terrorist group was more brutal than before due to the collaboration with the Islamic State’s West Africa Province.
He said “Let me assert that the security situation has deteriorated with kidnapping everywhere and Boko Haram more in action and nobody should deceive Nigerians about this.
“Boko Haram has also been empowered by the Nigerian government through payment of ransom of millions of dollars which each administration disingenuously always denied.”
Meanwhile, the PDP said the concerns raised by Obasanjo had vindicated its stand that Buhari was out for a self-succession plot.
The PDP National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, in a statement stated that Obasanjo’s submission had also reinforced the PDP’s position that Buhari, and his party, the APC, having realised that there was no way they could win in a free and fair election, were now allegedly besieging all democratic institutions, including the judiciary, the legislature, the INEC, and allegedly engaging in acts that threaten the unity, peace and corporate existence of Nigeria.
