Afenifere reacts as Obasanjo says Nigeria back to Abacha era under Buhari


The pan Yoruba socio-political organisation, Afenifere has reacted to remark by former President Olusegun Obasanjo that Nigeria was back to the late General Sani Abacha’s era under President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration.

Speaking on Sunday in his state of the nation address which he tagged “Points for Concern and Action” Obasanjo said just like Abacha era, state institutions are used to fight perceived enemies of the head of state.

Reacting to Obasanjo’s statement, spokesperson of Afenifere, Yinka Odumakin said Nigeria was experiencing a civilian dictatorship.

Giving reasons for his claim, Odumakin said there has been a rise in disobedience to court orders and absence of freedom speech.

Addressing newsmen, he said: “We are already in another Abacha regime. We have seen disobedience of court orders, the decimation of every perceived opponent, and absence of freedom of speech.

“We have seen the hounding of people. What we are in today is worse than Abacha, we knew what we had under Abacha. So, we have a civilian dictatorship in Nigeria.”
