Former President, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo on Monday advised Mrs Aisha Buhari, wife of President Muhammadu Buhari, to strive to get the attention of the President through “pillow talk” for him to grasp the true position of the state of the nation.

Mrs Buhari in recent times have spoken about her displeasure on how her husband’s government is being run, the latest being her challenge to the security apparatus to find a solution to the menace of banditry in the country.

Obasanjo, who commended Mrs Buhari for her speaking out, noted that she has apparently not adopted the bedroom approach to get her husband’s attention on the issues.

The former President, who played host to the Editorial Board of popular social media platform, Penpushing Media, at his Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library (OOPL) Boardroom, urged more advocacy and sensitisation to get the desired change in the country.

According to a statement by the Media Aide, Kehinde Akinyemi, Obasanjo added that the media also play crucial role in the mission to turn the country for better.

He quoted Obasanjo as saying that the advocacy would raise awareness, “and we have to put all things on table to address these problems. Mind you, we have to be sincere and genuine with ourselves.”

“It is nice that President wife is talking, I think she did well, and may be she should also have a pillow talk with the President.

“I believe every Nigerian family, individual, group is entitled to livelihood. It is the responsibility of all to make sure we have a dignify life. That should be our aim collectively,” he said.

Earlier in her speech, Chairman, Editorial Board of Penpushing Media, Mrs Funke Fadugba, said the visit was to intimate the former President with the programme of events for the third anniversary lecture of the organisation scheduled to hold on July 19 this year.

She said that the anniversary lecture with the theme “Political Evolution and Multi-party Democracy: Education to the Rescue”, has become imperative in view of the developments in the country.

Fadugba said the role of speaking truth to power by Obasanjo cannot be over-emphasised, “and, with the statements by the First Lady, Mrs Aisha Buhari, these are commendable efforts, but, one wonders what is really happening. The lecture, it is our belief will go a long way to bring the change this country deserves.”

The anniversary lecture, which holds at the Marque events centre of the OOPL, is expected to have the wife of the former President, Mrs Bola Obasanjo, as chairman.

The immediate past National President of the Nigerian Association of Chambers of Commerce, Industry, Mines and Agriculture (NACCIMA), Iyalode Alaba Lawson, was also in attendance to support the Editorial Board of the organisation at the meeting.

The Editorial Board members that were present also included Eddy Aina, Dr Goke Rauf and the platform founder, Prince Dimeji Kayode-Adedeji. Also in attendance were the anniversary lecture planning committee members, namely, Sina Adefolahan, Siji Oyesile, Bola Solate and Ronald Dansu.
