Obasanjo ​ready to do “all possible” to ​​​halt​ Africa​’s insecurity

Former President Olusegun Obasanjo

Former President, Olusegun Obasanjo, on Monday said he was ready to do everything possible to bring Africa
​’​​s​ growing insecurity to a halt.
 
He made this known shortly after meeting with the President of Sudan, Omar al-Bashir, in Khartoum, where he expressed his concern over the continent’s growing insecurity.
 
Mr. Obasanjo was in the North African country to discuss insecurity and instability in Africa, especially the crisis in Libya which has adversely affected other parts of Africa.

He told journalists that the session provided both leaders the opportunity to examine peace and security issues in Africa, particularly the situation in North Africa.
 
“Peace, security and stability which are fundamental to the development of any nation must be our preoccupation,” Mr. Obasanjo said. “We must do everything possible to ensure that all over Africa, and particularly in North Africa, efforts are made to guarantee peace, security and stability no matter where the need arises.
 
“My brother (President al-Bashir) and I have agreed to work together with other partners to ensure that stability is achieved in the region and across the continent.”
 
Mr. Obasanjo chairs the Africa Union’s commission of inquiry on South Sudan and has been a leading advocate of peace and security in Africa. 
 
In the 1990s, he initiated the Conference on Security, Stability Development and Co-operation in Africa, a policy development process created to function within the framework of the African Union and adopted at the 36th Session of the Assembly in Lome, Togo, in July 2000.

    The last general election
    was anything but free and
    fair. The only political
    parties that could
    complain of election
    rigging are those parties
    that lacked the resources
    to rig. There is ample
    evidence that rigging and
    thuggery were relative to
    the resources available to
    the parties. This
    conclusively proved to us
    that the parties have not
    developed confidence in
    the presidential system of
    government on which the
    nation invested so much
    material and human
    resources–by Buhari

      Here is a man to whom Nigeria has been very kind, but who, at every opportunity, seeks to destroy her, including anyone who disagrees with him. He is “MR KNOW-ALL”, the “baba” of Nigeria, the self-appointed “Messiah” of Nigeria, who taketh away all the sins of the world. He believes, delusionally, that he is like Christ, that “happy are those who are called to His supper”. In his futile and vainglorious pretensions at redemptive messianism in Nigeria, he has always corruptly appropriated to himself honours and garlands he does not deserve. A smart Alec, he has been very opportunistic.

        well said

    Obj is the most dangerous African leader on earth–any African country that makes the mistake of associating with Obj—should expect more trouble——–in their countries———–African leaders should der4 ignore him—why has he not been able to end the boko haram crisis in Nigeria over 13 years ago–the CIA used him to truncate the government of Jonathan—They will do the same with him for other nations in africa-

Especially your clueless benefactor.
