General Oladipo Diya Queue behind Obasanjo

The former chief of staff to the late General Sanni Abacha, General Ladipo Diya has echoed his voice in support of the points raised by the former president Olusegun Obasonjo by asking President Buhari not to seek re-election in 2019.

Diya maintained that Obasonjo was right in pointing out the issue of nepotism and advised President Muhammadu Buhari to look into it.
The adage in Obasanjo’s letter that, ‘when lice abound in your clothes, your fingernails will never be dried of blood’, must have sank deep into Diya who really experienced much from the government of late Sani Abacha military junta from 1994 until he was arrested for treason in 1997, and haven known reasons behind continual failure of the Nigerian state.

That Nigerians must remember how tyranny had evolved under the military government before now and pointing to all of the issues raised in Obasanjo’s letter, ranging from the lice of poor performance in government – poverty, insecurity, poor economic management, nepotism, gross dereliction of duty, condoning of misdeed, must aroused Diya to speaks up at the right time.

Responding to question from pressmen he said:
“You know Obasanjo has his own style of doing things.  I just see that tied to him.”  In a way of advice to president Buhari Diya said:
“I do not see any point there; the only issue there is accusation of nepotism.  That should be looked into.

It could be recalled that General Oladipo Diya is one of the military generals who has been around the corridor of Nigerian politics for a very long time.  Considering his role in the late General Abacha’s military regime, he seems to be in a good position to advice President Muhammadu Buhari on the subject of nepotism.
