Former President Olusegun Obasanjo, says Nigeria has had enough bloodshed and sacrifice.
Obasanjo’s remark is coming at a time when there has been call from various groups across the country calling for the breakup of the nation.
Speaking at a public presentation of the book written by Haruna Yahaya and titled, “The First Regular Combatant: Brigadier General Zakariya Maimalari,” in Abuja, Obasanjo said Nigeria needs peace and progress at this point in time.
The former President also said effort should be taken to root out political aberration from the military.
He said easing out officers who have the assistance of political office holders will prevent Nigeria from another war.
Obasanjo lamented that political influence in the Army had led to the killings of well-trained officers in the Army, who would have been useful to the country.
