President Buhari has failed and we must not reinforce failure
Former president Olusegun Obasanjo is clearly invested in ensuring President Muhammadu Buhari doesn’t get another chance at leading Nigeria, hence his consistent attempts at pointing out the latter’s very many faults.
Months after penning a letter to the president calling on him to forget reelection in 2019, Obasanjo has now outrightly described the president as a failure that needs not be reinforced with a reelection. He said, “The first lesson I learnt in my military training is never reinforce failure. What we have now is failure. Never you reinforce failure. Let failure be failure”.
He also condemned the Buhari administration’s habit of blaming past governments for its own shortcomings, “As I said, stop giving excuses; we met challenges. If there are no challenges, then we wouldn’t need you to come. You come in because you know there are challenges and then giving us an excuse that you have many challenges; that is why you haven’t achieved results”, Obasanjo said.
Do Nigerians agree with the former president?
I don't usually agree with Obasanjo, but he is 100% correct in saying this administration has failed.

Was Obasanjo not one of the key reasons why Buhari came to power? They are all the same. Do not be deceived. They seek out their own personal interests and not that of the people.

With this 👇below, it is only Nigerians who don’t remember history that would pay attention to Obasanjo’s antics.

Obasanjo's letter not working against Buhari the way he wanted it. He has issued another statement against this government again. Shamelessly accusing an incorruptible God's chosen PMB.

We don't need Obasanjo to tell us Buhari is a failure, its a fact that we already know. Buhari was a failure in 1984, he has always been a failure and will continue to be a failure. Any country governed by a Buhari is a FAILED STATE

Nigeria loses another healthcare worker to Lassa fever
The Lassa fever epidemic in parts of Nigeria has been largely treated with a laissez-faire attitude by the Nigerian government and health care workers are losing their lives in the process of tending to infected patients.
In January, a medical doctor, Idowu Ahmed Victor contacted the disease after treating a 7-month-old baby in Kogi state. He died days later and rather than fix the root cause of the issue, other doctors were advised by government health agencies to take safety precautions.
Now in Abia, a female paediatrician has died in a similar condition.
It’s true when they say everything in Nigeria will kill you.

I don't know why people are bashing CU for cutting their student's hair by force, like other top 10 universities in the world don't do the same.

Being in CU can negatively affect mental health. I am not trying to be funny, it is a fact.
