NIGERIANS are expressing divergent views on the recently written letter of former president, Olusegun Obasanjo to President Muhammadu Buhari.
While the heat is still on HEADLINE reports that while some Nigerians have hailed the former Nigeria’s leader who is fondly called OBJ, for his epistle others have kicked against it.
See some reactions below;
Content of OBJ's letter is a welcome development but the messenger is also culpable in the enthronement and colossal failure of Buhari. Though we warned them ahead of this tragedy. It is therefore the decision of Nigerians that Buhari has failed and he must go,not that of OBJ

OBJ's letter to PMB mostly says the right things. But one is nonetheless rather uneasy about its author. There are serious questions about him too. For long, the kingmakers and fixers have been trying to fix Nigeria – but see where they've led us! Now it's up to us, the people.

I do not envy the presidential media team at all today. How to handle this OBJ letter has to be one of the hardest and tricky decision they have to make, and i am waiting and interested in seeing how they go about it.

I feel like gloating at all those who called one names for saying ALL the things that Obasanjo just said in his epistle, but no point.
People died in Benue, Buhari didn't react for days.
OBJ wrote letter, IMMEDIATELY, Tinubu and Akande were summoned.

Obasanjo has written another one of his self serving useless letters. We were aware a week ago that he would 'leak' this letter. Everyone OBJ has supported he has ended up regretting. Is he not just a meddlesome old man?
Whoever OBJ supports in 2019 we will not vote for. Simple

OBJ did not bring PMB into politics. Yes, he brought Jonathan. Obj had influence in the north but his northern influence is a child's play because the super tanker of the Polical space in the north is PMB himself! This doesn't remove the fact PMB must read the letter carefully!

OBJ letter is past tense…not this moment, we have upper hand than him….this is not his first time losing against Jagaban, he lose to #Jagaban for good 6yrs when he was Aso-rock.

We all knew OBJ's letter to PMB was coming & while many will be happy, with his offer to be part of a coalition to 'lead the country into the path of rebirth', we must be discerning. Military men have played ping pong with our lives for too long; Nigeria is not their playground

I hope @MBuhari and his handlers do not do what the last admin did when OBJ castigated GEJ.
Instead of going into full defensive mode like his predecessor, I hope Buhari dissects the letter and implements the inherently common sense changes suggested by OBJ.

Those that praised OBJ for writing such letter to President GEJ then are now condemning him for writing PMB. Hmmmmmn. Nigerians.

Meanwhile, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has described Mr. Obasanjo:s letter as courageous, timeous and patriotic, adding that such had vindicated its position on President Buhari and the All Progressives Congress (APC).
The party, however, rejected the call by Chief Obasanjo for a third force saying that such would amount to repeating the same blunder that brought in the ideologically vacuous APC and the Buhari Presidency which had now wrecked havoc on the nation in its almost three years of governance.
