Eminent lawyer, Chief Goddy Uwazurike, has challenged other elders in the country to emulate former president, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, and speak up instead of watching the country head for destruction. He made the call while speaking with News Express, throwing his weight behind Obasanjo’s recent critical open letter to President Muhammadu Buhari.

According to the former President of Igbo think tank Ohanaeze, “No matter how much one dislikes Obasanjo, no one can take away his fortuitous role in affairs of this country. He has never shied away from taking on national issues. Where other statesmen avoid controversial issues, Obasanjo will frontally tackle the problem!  Yes, he can be petty, like he was to Jonathan. He also sold Buhari to the nation as a suitable person to redeem this country, knowing very well that the inadequacies outweigh the competence.

“But Obasanjo has been used by nature to unravel our intractable problems!”

On Obasanjo’s latest intervention, Uwazurike described it as timely, saying: “The present letter is apt because truly we are teetering on the precipice. The insecurity in this country has assumed an alarming sword dangling on our faces. Obasanjo spoke because he is a statesman. He spoke for the safety of the fragile peace we have now. The only aphrodisiac that evil requires to thrive is for men of conscience to sit on the fence or stand aloof! Let other members of the patriarchal class speak up now!”
