Speaking at a meeting of the Coalition of Nigerian Moment in Awka, Anambra State, Obasanjo said the Igbo would be the most beneficiary in Buhari’s ouster.

He asked the Igbo not to believe the promise that the Igbo would produce the President in 2023, describing it as “a grand deceit and evil machination.”

Speaking through the South East convener of CNM, Dr. Okey Nwosu, the ex-president asked the people of the zone to “collectively work with the CNM towards ousting Buhari from office in the 2019 general elections..

He accused the All Progressives Congress government of perpetrating “carnage and wanton destruction of lives and property across the country.”

He said, “The meeting is a wake-up call for Nd’Igbo to dump APC and collaborate with CNM, which is the best alternative for their rescue from poverty, hunger, recklessness and ethnic cleansing in the hands of the Hausa/Fulani marauders.

“Every Nigerian leader is very much embarrassed with the state of the nation where people are attacked, killed, raped and made refuges in their own homes.

“Political leaders must advocate action against these senseless killings and seek how to design a new democratic action plan to ensure we take care of this conundrum democratically, and say, ‘Enough is enough.’

“If unchecked, these unethical activities will lead to the destruction of the country. It does not augur well for Nigeria’s development.”

He said the objective of CNM was mostly on how to “sack Buhari from Aso Rock in 2019 and ensure that a visionary government is elected.”

He added, “Nigeria’s eminent personalities, including Generals Yakubu Gowon, Ibrahim Babangida and T.Y. Danjuma have all spoken and condemned the killings and destruction in the country.

“If these people can say that the nation needs to be saved from these calamities, the South-East geo-political zone must add their voice to the clarion call.”

He said the CNM had mobilised no fewer than five million Nigerians to realise its objectives in 2019.



  1. See who is talking , you are one of the person that lead us to where we meet our self today. pple cant hear ur voice again bcos they av knw the kind of the person u are

  2. Ndi-ibgo did not vote for Buharia in the first place so they have little or no say in the out of the next election. Best to study the situation and pitch camp with whoever is likely to win instead of voting based on sentiments.

  3. Is it not an irony that Obj who spent his first three years as President junketting the world and completed his eight years with an eye for further extention is now the one condemning another President of inaction after just three years in office?

  4. Baba Iyabooooo you’ve no say in the current issue because an adage says, a no – do- well person does not have the gut to condemn someone whose score is better. You spent billions of Dollars on PHCN and the energy generated was not commensurate with the amount spent. You amended by decree the Electoral act by deleting the Electoral College from it to prevent Progressive Alliance formation of the other parties against the NPN . Your actions was one of the great contributing factors to the mess we found ourselves in our country.. The score card of PMB. government are very visible to all and sundry.The memories of the civil war is still very fresh in the minds of the Elders of the Ndigbos and they’ll never allow themselves to be deceived by your comments. http://www.regencyng.net/PMB please ride on, God will perfect all that he has started through you and Nigeria will be an exceedingly great country.
