Former President Olusegun Obasanjo, yesterday met behind closed-doors with the presidential candidate of Action Democratic Party, ADP, Yabagi Sani.
Speaking with journalists shortly after the meeting held at Obasanjo’s Abeokuta residence, Sani said the ex-Nigerian leader noted that the country’s political power was in the hands of those who are ignorant of how to use it to better the lots of the people.
He added that Nigeria required an informed leadership that will take the country to the promise land.
The ADP candidate remarked: “The economy of this country is at the lowest ebb you can ever think of. This is a country whose GDP was about $570 billion just about two or three years ago, growing at five percent rate or more and for the economy to go down to 1.5 percent growth rate; with all the potentials of this country, it is not our lot.
“God does not want us to suffer hunger, deprivation, killing, lack of capacity in governance, lack of direction. The President cannot keep his own house in order. It is a shame. We are a laughing stock in the international community.
“This is not the promise of this nation. This is not what we have. We have something better.
“And that is why people like us have stepped forward to be given the opportunity to give this country the leadership it requires, the informed leadership.
“A situation whereby you have power but you don’t have the knowledge, it is crisis. That is what we are in.”
