Obasanjo tells Buhari killing would only worsen crisis, In a statement released through his private media urging the federal government over the use of excessive force as the approach to ending the protest.
“It is worse that there is a denial of wrongdoing in spite of overwhelming visual evidence. Great harm has been done but it can be stopped before it completely spirals out of control.
“We are at a critical moment in this crisis and the President must act now before it is too late. This time demands leadership and mature leadership at such.”
“It is imperative that leaders at all levels, starting with Mr President, must demonstrate meekness, humanity and sincerity in meeting the legitimate demands of the protesters and ensuring that justice is served where it must be served. These are the potent ways of ending this crisis now.”
He also urged the president over a peaceful dialogue to seeing a better and more responsible government. He also said using brute force would not promote peaceful dialogue between both parties.
