A pan-Yoruba group,  Yoruba Youth Forum, has commended former President Olusegun Obasanjo for forgiving ex-Vice-President Atiku Abubakar of all his wrongdoings.

The group also lauded Obasanjo for endorsing Atiku, who is the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, for the 2019 general elections.

The YYF said by forgiving Atiku, Obasanjo had shown himself as a genuine leader, adding that it believed that the former President’s move was in the country’s interest because “the majority of Nigerians are already tired of the APC-led government which has failed to deliver despite the massive supports by Nigerians.”

The YYF said this in a statement on Monday by its Chairman, Olusegun Bolarinwa.

It said, “We want to specifically thank former President Olusegun Obasanjo for finally accepting the apology of his former deputy in the interest of Nigerians.

“Many Nigerian voted for the APC because they thought the party would be able to improve their lives but today the party has made a mess of every sector of our national life.

“The economy today is in a total mess. During the electioneering period,  President Muhammadu Buhari and his party, APC, made promises which many of us believed.

“Some of us believed in those promises not because we were fools but because those promises came from Buhari, a man we once vouched for his integrity.

“But today, Mr President, none of those promises has been fulfilled. Nigeria has fared badly under President Buhari.”

The Yoruba group claimed that under the Buhari government, the nation’s economy had become “a ravaging bull running amok and has defied any solution from the government.”

“Majority of Nigerians have become hopeless in the face of the economic hardship that has plagued the nation since Buhari took over the mantle of leadership of this great nation.

“The vicious cycle of poverty now engulfs the masses to a level of suffocation,” the group added.

Meanwhile, the senatorial candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Adamawa Central, Murtala Modibbo, has said Obasanjo’s U-turn and endorsement of Atiku is a sign that the administration of Buhari has failed Nigerians.

Modibbo said, “It goes to show that the administration has failed completely. I think the endorsement of former President Olusegun Obasanjo and other religious leaders goes to confirm the level of dissatisfaction among the elite for the administration.

“If these same people who endorsed him (Buhari) over three years ago are now the same persons making a U-turn,  it speaks volume about the character of the current government that is now in power.”
