The former President of Nigeria Olusegun Obasanjo has advised Nigerians not to vote for thieves and hooligans in the forthcoming presidential election.
Obasanjo was speaking during the launch of former President Jonathan book launch. He was also the chairman of the occasion.
He said I urged Nigerians to ensure that they would not hand over the nation and democracy to those he called thieves and hooligans.
He said if the nation’s democracy was handed over to those in those categories, they could use it as a weapon against the people.
Obasanjo said, “There is still no substitute for democracy when all is said and done. It fosters peace. It builds and does not destroy. It unifies, rather than divides.
“But all these can only happen if democracy is in the hands of Democrats. If it is in the hands of thieves and hooligans, they can use it as a weapon. We should ensure hooligans don’t get it.”
