Former president Olusegun Obasanjos is an ingrate, says Former Minister of the Federal Capital territory (FCT) retired General Jeremiah Useni.
Speaking to journalist inYola, the Adamawa Capital, last week General Useni, who is also the chairman of Board of Trustees of the Arewa Consultation Forum (ACF) accused Former Head of state, retired General Muhammadu Buhari, former Vice President, Alhaji Abubakar Atiku and former Governor of Sokoto state Dr Attahiru Bafawara of killing the emergence of the much-awaited party by their vaunting ambitions.
According to him, each of the trio wants to be the presidential candidate of the mega party, which yet-to-be registered name is National Democratic Movement (NDM).
He bemoaned the fact that current political arrangements to upstage the ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) may fail, unless the trio agree to forget their individual ambitions for the mega party formation to more forward.
Useni, who lambasted the former president, Olusegun Obasanjo, over factors he said threatened the democracy of the country, said the mega party arrangement was to truly address issues that will not give course for leaders to demand for third term after office.
He said former President Obasanjo was ungrateful to God and Nigerians for initiating a process to have a third term in office, after completing two constitutional tenures.
“God helped you to have a successful military regime. You were jailed and pardoned, you did not thank God. You were made a civilian president for four years, you did not thank God. You were re-elected for another four years, you did not thank God. And again you wanted to change our constitution to give you the third term. He is not grateful”
He urged Alumni of the National Institute of Policy and Strategic Studies (NIPSS) to give the country the desired leadership, having completed serious studies on different forms of leadership in the institute.
Useni and other members of the institute were in Yola, to mobilize its members for talks with governments on how to give good leadership to Nigeria.
