Former President Olusegun Obasanjo, has said any leader who cannot perform and provide good leadership should be voted out of office.

He said this at the Lagos State University, LASU, Convocation lecture in Lagos, on Tuesday while speaking on the topic, “Role of Tertiary Education in Promoting Social Cohesion and Peace: Opportunities and Challenges for Nigeria.”

Obasanjo, who did not mention President Muhammadu Buhari directly in his speech, however, said leaders who had failed should not think of seeking re-election but should vacate office.

According to Obasanjo, “We need those four things. If for any reason, you, as a leader in any walk of life, you cannot give leadership, maintain good governance; you cannot understand what development is and maintain and cherish values within our cultures, you must ship out no matter any level of leader you are.

“If we continue with business as usual, our chances of development within the committee of nations will be very slim. We have to do things differently in Nigeria for us to get things right. If we do this, we will be reckoned with globally. But if we fail, the world will leave us behind.

“As a leader, you must be ready to Give, or get others to Give (delegate). And if you cannot do either of the two, you must Get out. If we don’t have them, we are deceiving ourselves. God has given Nigeria what it needs. But we will get there if we apply the three Gs.”
