The Nigeria Prosperity Project (NPP) has urged former President

Olusegun Obasanjo to stop over-heating the already charged political

atmosphere and offer useful services as a patriot and statesman that

Nigeria can rely on in times of trouble.
The non- governmental organisation decried Obasanjo's unrelenting

attacks on President Goodluck Jonathan and his administration by the

former president, saying “this is uncalled for and unbecoming of a

statesman.
National Coordinator of the NPP, Mr. Louis Ebodaghe said Obasanjo has

no moral justification to descend so low in his continuous tirades and

unnecessary outburst.
The group noted that Obasanjo is
merely an envious former leader who is uncomfortable with the

achievements of President Jonathan.
Under Jonathan's administration, the coordinator pointed out that 12

new federal universities have been built, nine in the North and only

three in the south.
According to the group, “during the eight years rule of Obasanjo/Atiku

Abubakar administration, they built only two private universities;

Bells University in Abeokuta, Ogun state for Obasanjo and ABATI

University in Yola, Adamawa state for Atiku.
The group noted that
President Jonathan more than anything needs commendation and support

to take the nation to the next level.
Ebodaghe added that “no matter the level of misgivings, the facts

eloquently speak for themselves. The development strides of President

Jonathan's administration are on ground and verifiable. People may

have different motives, but Nigeria and Nigerians desires meaningful

development which Jonathan represents”.
He sad the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) postponed

the general elections from February 14 to March 28 because of the

security challenges in parts of the country and the fact that millions

of Nigerians were yet to collect their permanent voter cards.
