“Step Down Immediately, You Have No More Ideas” – Obasanjo Tells Togolese President



Former President of Nigeria, Olusegun Obasanjo, has urged Togolese President, Faure Gnassingbe to step down “unless he has something new” to offer.

The opposition in the country has continued to call for the resignation of the President who has ruled for 12 years.
The opposition also staged protests demanding for a constitutional reform, which would limit the term of a President.
In an interview with BBC, Obasanjo said he believes the Togolese president;
“must have exhausted whatever ideas he has”.
“I believe that President Gnassingbe will have to do something about it (the protests),”
“I believe they should have a new constitution that will have a limit to the number of terms anybody can be president and he should abide by that.
“I [also] believe whatever he has to do in terms of development, whatever ideas he has, he must have exhausted them by now. Unless he has something new that we don’t know.
“After twelve to fifteen years, some of them (African leaders) up to thirty…and maybe, if you don’t leave office, office will leave you.”
