Former President Olusegun Obasanjo on Saturday alleged that President Goodluck Jonathan is adopting the delay tactics of former Cote D Ivoire President, Laurent Gbagbo and warned of the likely dire consequences on Nigerians.
The former President who spoke with journalists at his mansion on Presidential Hilltop Estate, Abeokuta, the Ogun state capital said President Jonathan was playing with the future of the country.
Obasanjo noted that President Gbagbo kept shifting the election date in his country until he was sure of winning and when the elections came resulted in a run – off, he did not only refused to handover power upon losing, but also “unleashed chaos, confusion and crisis” on his people “until nemesis caught up with him.”
He warned President Jonathan to be careful of those prodding him on, saying when the heat begins, he would be left “naked and isolated.”
According to Obasanjo, Jonathan’s fear of what Buhari might do to him and others if he loses the polls because of Buhari’s tough disposition towards corruption and others vices informed the shift in election dates.
