Former President Olusegun Obasanjo yesterday likened the state of the nation to the late Gen. Sani Abacha’s military era, when he said the middle class was wiped out.
Obasanjo likened both administrations while receiving a delegation of 150 persons from the Nigerian Market Traders Council at his Abeokuta hilltop mansion who had visited to seek his counsel on where to cast their votes in 2015.
Tell a story about someone who sent him(Obasanjo) a message. He said:
“I told him (the SMS sender) that we have experienced this period in time of Abacha, the middle class was completely destroyed.”
Obasanjo also took time to advice Nigerian to be alert and vigilant and also willing to contribute to things that are meaningfully positive for the country.
“We all have contribution to make and should not leave our responsibility on others to do. If we fail to participate in things that are meaningfully positive for this country, you will be a victim and we all become victims,” he concluded.
