Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has said President Muhammadu Buhari is completely overwhelmed by the security challenges playing out across the country.
Speaking on the recent attacks on the Kaduna-Abuja train with no fewer than seven persons were confirmed dead and 21 passengers missing, the former President lamented that no place is safe for Nigerians anymore.
The former president spoke at his residence, Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library in Abeokuta, Ogun State while receiving a Peoples Democratic Party presidential aspirant, Dr Ugochukwu Williams, and his team.
Obasanjo suggested a multi-stakeholder approach to dealing with the situation.
“So, if anybody comes to say I want to see you, I want to talk to you, I will say ‘you’re welcome’. This is because I believe very strongly, and I have said it publicly and I will say it again that the situation we are in this country is not a situation where one man will say yes, he has a solution unless we are deceiving ourselves. I believe we need to sit down collectively and look at the situation.
“A situation where you are not safe on the road, you are not safe on the train, you are not safe at the airport, shows a very serious situation.
“I believe that all right-thinking Nigerians must know that we have a situation that has overwhelmed the present administration, but we should not allow that situation to overwhelm Nigeria.”
