Former President Olusegun Obasanjo recently and as usual penned an open letter to President Buhari.
In the letter, Obasanjo said four calamities awaited Nigeria , if the President failed to act with maximum dispatch .
He stated , “ To be explicit and without equivocation , Mr President and General, I am deeply worried about four avoidable calamities :
“ 1 . Abandoning Nigeria into the hands of criminals who are all being suspected, rightly or wrongly , as the Fulani and terrorists of Boko Haram type;
“ 2 . Spontaneous or planned reprisals against the Fulani which may inadvertently or advertently mushroom into pogrom or a Rwanda -type genocide that we did not believe could happen and yet it happened ;
“ 3 . Similar attacks against any other tribe or ethnic group anywhere in the country initiated by rumours , fears , intimidation and revenge capable of leading to pogrom;
“ 4 . Violent uprising beginning from one section of the country and spreading quickly to other areas and leading to dismemberment of the country . ”
Obasanjo said the issue he addressed in the letter could no longer be ignored or treated “ with cuddling gloves .”
