What I will do to protect Nigeria’s democracy – Obasanjo

Former President Olusegun Obasanjo, on Thursday vowed to do “everything humanly possible” to save Nigeria’s democracy.

Obasanjo made the declaration during the launch of “Politics as Dashed Hopes in Nigeria”, written by Auwala Anwar, his former Special Assistant on Federal Capital Territory Administration, FCTA, in Abuja.

The former president also stressed that the world was watching how Nigeria will handle the forthcoming elections.

Obasanjo stated that he was happy most Nigerians are “rising up to their duties and responsibilities in guidance of our democracy.”

He said: “If we cherish democracy, we will all guard and protect our democracy. And that I believe is the main purpose of the book.

“I am in despair; our hope lies in democracy and good governance as one of the hallmarks of free fair and credible election.

“As for me, I will do everything humanly possible to safeguard democracy, with good governance for Nigeria and for all Nigerians.

“Remember that if you stand aloof when evil is being perpetrated, you become an accomplice in the perpetuation of the evil.”
