Taiwo Obasanjo, the former wife of Chief Olusegun Obasanjo has said that she has a divine command to float a new political party that will rescue Nigeria from sadistic power.
In an interview with The Sun, Taiwo said the party’s name would be Abundant Blessing Congress.
She said: “I have a divine assignment from God to come out with something like this. It has a divine agenda. What is the divine agenda? What is the agenda? It is to create a selfless platform for people to come together and become the custodian, part and parcel towards rebuilding this nation. We shouldn’t leave it to only the government of the day to run. It is going to be a kind of shadow government, that will also externalise itself in all that they want to do for the nation. The Abundant Blessing Congress will also be internalizing what they want to do and that’s what we are going to externalize in the nation. That’s why I said we shall have a shadow government, because right now, what we have doesn’t make me happy.”
Taiwo described President Muhammadu Buhari as the one sent to clear the foundation and said she would build on his work.
“Yes, we can solve the problem because he came as a caterpillar to clear the bush but he isn’t the one that will be building that foundation, I believe he can build a superior foundation on the one he has laid. And what is the foundation he has come to lay? His mission is to bring us back to a people with conscience, a people that must know that we should rule with fear of God; that is, we should be accountable and there should be disciplined and we shouldn’t institutionalize dishonesty. So, the man shouldn’t be hated.”
On whether she agreed with what Aisha Buhari said that some forces had hijacked power from Buhari, she said: “I agree with that and that’s why I say Buhari isn’t the person to be blamed, we shouldn’t heap blame on him; there are forces beyond him which he is unaware of. Perhaps, I don’t know but they are behind the throne. I will call them sadistic power, they are always unleashig their venom.”
“Buhari may not be aware, they work gradually like I told you.
“Buhari from my own personal psycho-analysis and information given to me by the Almighty God, is 100 percent good. He is clean, he has what you call undiluted honesty, he has what you call undiluted integrity and he isn’t cunning, he isn’t sly. He isn’t hypocritical. But there are sadistic forces behind the throne, he isn’t even aware that they are sadistic and they are using their venom to poison the agenda given to him by God. He hasn’t come to inflict pain or hardship on the people, but right now, the change we are now experiencing in the nation is change into greater hardship, greater problem than we have ever seen before in the history of this country.”
She however noted that it is the people that need to be delivered from these forces.
“It isn’t Buhari that has to be delivered, it is we the people that have to take it up as our responsibility. Let me give you an example. When small pox was a plague in the world, killing so many people, the cure for small pox was found in administering the same virus into the virus killing the people and that’s where the cure came for small pox—virus into virus and the plague was stopped. Just like that! So, the solution is the people now. Like I said, the emphasis, the focus, the blame, whatever it is, shouldn’t be on Buhari or Jonathan. I think the people have to come in, which is what our party now, our congregation, the people have to come right now and now begin to discuss, to actualize how we are going to solve our problems ourselves, without heaping everything on the president, because he cannot solve them all alone. The solution to Nigeria’s problem is with Nigeria.”
Taiwo insisted that she was not a front for the former president but doing God’s request.
People might take me for a front for Daddy Obasanjo, no. I am not a voice for him, I am a voice for the Almighty God. I am a mother and when a mother sees her children, going through a lot of pains, she has to play her own part to ameliorate the suffering of her family.
So, what we are trying to do is a family affair, a family platform.
We are coming together, men and women. Any candidate that wants to go into elective office, I am not coming forward for any elective office.
Taiwo however insisted that she was not interested in contesting for elective office.
I Taiwo Obasanjo will not be seeking an elective office but my members can. The party is hinged on three S: selfless sacrifice, selfless service and the third is selfless submission, saturated with self discipline and accountability. Selfless service is about serving people not with the motive of money. When we talk about self discipline, even if you come, it is a conservative party, but open to suggestion, open to improvement.
