Former Nigerian President, Olusegun Obasanjo says his critique of current government led by President Goodluck Jonathan is a result of his desire to see that things were done in the right way.
Obasanjo, dismissed insinuations that he is not in good terms with President Jonathan while addressing women leaders from across the southwestern states of country, who visited him at his Abeokuta home on Monday.
He however said he was willing confront anyone who doesn’t mean well for the nation and that he would defend Nigeria even with his life.
“I have no grudges against Jonathan and I think Jonathan equally has no grudges against me. I’m not quarreling with Jonathan but all I know is that whatever is good for Nigeria, that I’m ready to die for. I emphasize that, whatever is good for Nigeria, is what I’m ready to defend with my life. Whoever, I emphasize, whoever says he would not do anything good to Nigeria, even, if he says he is ready to go ‘koko bellow’, I’m ready to square it up with such a person. I say again, whoever that person may be; I want you to get that correctly. If this country is going to change for the better, it would start from the top and if it’s going to be otherwise, it would start from the top too,” Obasanjo told his visitors.
He noted that he has all the experience to advice any politician, adding that whoever wishes not to listen to him may turn deaf ear.
