If you don’t like Buhari, wait for 2019 election – Obasanjo tells Nigerians
Former president, Olusegun Obasanjo, has said that Nigerians should stop praying for President Muhammadu Buhari’s death.
He said they should rather wait for the next general elections in 2019 to vote him out if they don’t like him.
This was contained in a press release issued by his media aide on Friday in Abeokuta.
Obasanjo described those behind the rumoured death of Buhari as wicked, callous and treacherous.
He added that all the President needed “are our prayers and best wishes, which will ginger his morale to come back more stronger and better.”
Obasanjo also recalled that he has also been a victim of such rumours when he was president and stated that “no normal human being will wish an elderly person dead irrespective of their differences.
“If you don’t like him, wait for another election, not going about to say he is dead. No matter his health situation, we should pray for him to recover quick and come back more stronger and better. For anyone wishing him dead, such person or group of persons are callous, wicked and treacherous.
Why food prices are high in Nigeria – Osinbajo
Acting President, Yemi Osinbajo has explained why prices of food items are high in the country.
Osinbajo said one of the reasons was lack of accessible roads in rural areas.
Laolu Akande, the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media & Publicity quoted Osinbajo as making this remark at the Task Force on Food Security constituted by the Federal Executive Council on Wednesday.
According to the statement, the meeting, which was presided over by the Ag. President focused on “gaining a full understanding of all factors that contribute to unduly high food prices, especially at urban markets throughout the country.
“It also considered the ways and means of urgently ameliorating the situation, particularly by addressing issues of affordability and availability.”
He said, “In particular, it identified some key staple foods and the factors that were most likely driving high food prices in some parts of the country, despite bumper harvests at many farms.
“Some of the factors identified in this regard include: the poor state of rural infrastructure like roads; multiple revenue collecting points on the highways; and inadequacy of distribution networks-all of which contribute, among other things to high transportation costs.
