Obasanjo charges incoming government to end ethnic division caused by elections 



Former President of Nigeria, Olusegun Obasanjo, has charged the incoming administration to  work towards facilitating national moral rearmament and reconciliation. 

Obasanjo said this was necessary, following the divisiveness occasioned by the just concluded general elections.

This he said had the potential to bring about healing and to assuage Nigerian youths who were angered by the shortcomings of the elections.

He stated this while delivering his speech at a Conference in Abuja, organised by Nextier and the Ibadan School of Governance and Public Policy themed, “From Elections to Governance and Performance”.
