We will mobilise the whole of Nigeria to Aso Rock if Obasanjo is harmed – ADC threatens
– ADC accuses the Buhari-led government of hounding opposition members into submission
– The party says Nigeria and God are on its side
– FG denies witch-hunting past leaders
The African Democratic Congress (ADC) has threatened to shut down the presidential villa if former president, Olusegun Obasanjo, is harmed by the current administration.
The party which has been adopted by Obasanjo, made the statement in reaction to claims by the former president that the Buhari administration was plotting to detain him on false charges.
The chairman of the ADC, Chief Okey Nwosu, told the Punch during a telephone interview on Friday, June 8, that the Buhari-led government had resorted to hounding opposition members into submission having failed to deliver on its campaign promises.

“What we are witnessing is the desperation of a failed government. When you have mediocre persons that are not focused on handling state power, they often go to dictatorial levels to try to achieve their aim but this time, the people of Nigeria and God are on our side and we will do what our country needs,” he said.
“President Obasanjo cannot be touched. When in 2014 and 2015, he was in the vanguard of trying to effect change because of the situation then, they were applauding him as the champion of a new Nigeria.
“Now that things have gone wrong in the area of security and economy and he is speaking out, they are now chasing the champion of new Nigeria. We will mobilise the whole of Nigeria to take over Aso Rock Villa if the government steps out of line.”
