Ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo has reacted to the insinuations that President Muhammadu Buhari died a long time ago. Obasanjo, who spoke in Abeokuta, the Ogun State Capital, noted that Buhari’s death could not be kept secret.
While reacting to the unverified claims that President Buhari is dead, the former President said a top federal government official asked him to confirm the authenticity of the reports, which went viral on social media.
There are strong speculations that the current Nigerian President is one Jubril from Sudan; however, the recent interview granted by President Buhari on Arise TV has again made the rumours questionable.
Meanwhile, he has expressed concerns that Nigeria’s population may soon become a problem if not managed properly. According to the former President, Nigeria can avert issues of a population explosion with proper planning.
The Ogun State-born Politician advised Nigerian leaders to prepare against population explosion to avoid challenges in the future, adding that Nigeria could become the third most populated country in the world by 2050.
He noted that Nigeria’s population has moved from 120 million to over 200 million. Obasanjo further projected that Nigeria could be the largest country in the world by the year 3000.
The former President opined that the country needs to start education about population management to avoid the danger of overpopulation in the few years to come.
