  • “Nigeria Is Back To Abacha Era’ — Obasanjo Hits Buhari Again
  • Former president Olusegun Obasanjo says Nigeria is back to the
    Abacha era when state institutions were used to fight perceived
    enemies of the head of state.
    He was speaking on Sunday in his state of the nation address which
    he tagged “Points for Concern and Action”.
    Sani Abacha, a general, was the military head of state from
    November 1993 till his death in June 1998 and was accused of using
    dictatorial powers to rule the country.
    TheCable understands that Obasanjo decided to address the nation
    following recent developments in the polity, including the trial of the
    chief justice of Nigeria, Walter Onnoghen, over an alleged false
    declaration of assets.
    Obasanjo said: “Today, another Abacha Era is here. The security
    institutions are being misused to fight all critics and opponents of
    Buhari and to derail our fledgling democracy. EFCC, Police and Code
    of Conduct Tribunal are also being equally misused to deal with
    those Buhari sees as enemies for criticising him or as those who
    may not do his bidding in manipulating election results. Criticism,
    choice and being different are inherent trade mark of democracy. If
    democracy is derailed or aborted, anarchy and authoritarianism will
    automatically follow.
    “Today, as in the day of Abacha, Nigerians must rise up and do
    what they did in the time of Abacha. Churches and Mosques
    prayed. International community stood by us Nigerians. I was a
    beneficiary and my life was saved. Well-meaning Nigerians took
    appropriate actions and made sacrifices, some supreme, some less
    than supreme but God had the final say and He took the ultimate
    action.”
    Obasanjo was jailed for life by Abacha on 1995 over an alleged coup
    plot, but he was released in 1998 after the death of the military
    ruler.
    He was then twice elected president of Nigeria, from 1999 to 2007,
    having been a military head of state himself from 1976 to 1979.
