In the end, Buhari will have to face the consequences of not listening to Nigerians, according to former president Obasanjo

In a scathing attack on President Muhammadu Buhari and his administration, Olusegun Obasanjo said the time has come for them to answer for their failure to listen to the people of Nigeria.

According to Obasanjo, state police should be established in order to combat the widespread insecurity that has ravaged the nation.

During a lecture titled "Social Responsibility in Nation Building," which was held to commemorate the 78th anniversary of the Island Club in Lagos on Friday, former President Olusegun Obasanjo made the announcement.

He asserted that only a safe atmosphere could ensure the development of a sovereign nation state.

"I've said it before, and I'll say it again," Obasanjo declared. To effectively combat insecurity, Nigeria should deploy state police in each of its 36 states, according to the United Nations. A government's responsibility includes providing citizens with a safe environment and all-around security.

"No nation can be formed in an environment where peace, security, and stability are not assured or guaranteed, and where the President and the future are not enthroned in a manner that is reasonable predictable." Having a government that is deaf, stupid, and blind is a sure sign that the government will not be around for very long.

It is essential for governments to listen to their citizens. The day of reckoning will come for you if you do not pay attention to the voice of the people, and it will come quickly. It has arrived, as we can see all around us.

In order to be successful in life, you must acknowledge that there is an element of risk. What would make you choose not to speak up in public? Fear? There is a Yoruba adage that says, "You speak, you die; you don't speak, you'll still die." Eventually, death will come to us all. I have no fear of death while I am here.

We are witnessing something very painful. " More than four million youngsters are out of school in Nigeria at the moment. That is an undeniably true statement. There's no way they can get away with that! Because they are afraid of death, Nigerians should not bury their faces. Clearly lay out the facts; and if they choose to deny it, it is their prerogative.

On the other hand, he called on Nigerians to embrace their differences and work together as a nation toward the common goal of creating one Nigeria.

His conclusion was as follows: "Diverseism is of God; uniformity is of Satan." Our aspiration as Nigerians must be to learn to manage our differences so that we can all work towards one common objective — the Nigerian dream. "A nation is not constituted until there is a stake, mutual dignity, common accountability, and a shared purpose for each and every component of the country."
