Obasanjo tasks Buhari on good governance

Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has urged the President-elect Muhammadu Buhari to realize that Nigerians are expecting a lot from him when he eventually takes over power May 29, Premium Times reports.

He said Nigerians voted for Buhari because they wanted change, so the incoming government must do everything possible not to betray their trust.

Obasanjo wrote a letter to Buhari after the latter was declared winner of the election and asked the president-elect to pay more attention to institutional reforms in Nigeria.

Obasanjo said Nigeria had been unnecessarily over-heated before and during the campaigns and divisive tendencies were openly displayed.

He urged Buhari to “heal” the wounds following the intense electioneering campaigns.
