The Patriotic Elders Association of Nigeria, a group of retired civil servants, military officers and some businessmen, has castigated former President Olusegun Obasanjo on his remarks that Nigeria needs more ‘rebels’ to tell the government the truth.

The National President, Dr Bature AbdulAziz, said in a statement that Obasanjo and different leaders are answerable for the issues the nation is confronting.

“That is why we are appealing to these leaders including Obasanjo himself, who have submerged themselves into negativity regarding the nation to be patriotic and stop because Nigeria is their country too.

“We are in search of positivity that builds the nation, not negativity that destroys the nation. Nigeria is our country, and it’s compulsory for us to be patriotic.

“We need to distance ourselves from people who have no positive thoughts for their nation, and we must be positive about our nation if truly we mean good for it,” he said.
