Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has advised Nigerians not to hand over the nation and democracy to ‘thieves and hooligans’.

Obasanjo said this while speaking at the launch of Goodluck Jonathan’s book in Abuja, on Tuesday November 20th. Obasanjo said

There is still no substitute for democracy when all is said and done. It fosters peace. It builds and does not destroy. It unifies, rather than divides. But all these can only happen if democracy is in the hands of democrats. If it is in the hands of thieves and hooligans, they can use it as a weapon. We should ensure hooligans don’t get it.”

The former president has openly declared his support for Atiku Abubakar, the PDP presidential candidate, and has since asked Nigerians to vote out the Buhari-led administration in 2019 general elections
