prayers and best wishes, which will
ginger his morale to come back more
stronger and better.”
Obasanjo said the issue needed not be
politicised and said it was wrong to
wish anyone dead irrespective of
differences and recalled he has been the
victim of rumoured death while in
He said: “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.
“I was also rumoured to have died
almost 12 times. I don’t know what they
derive from doing so, but, they should
seek for forgiveness.
“Even if we know that the President is
sick, he is in a better position to know
what to say or what to do and not
wishing him dead. We should just stop
politicising everything, especially with
the elderly in the country.”
