Reactions have continued to trail the open letter former President Olusegun Obasanjo wrote to President Muhammadu Buhari on the state of the nation.

The former president on Tuesday wrote an open letter to President Muhammadu Buhari asking him not to seek re-election in 2019.

Excerpts from the letter reads "Whatever may be the state of President Buhari’s health today, he should neither over-push his luck nor over-tax the patience and tolerance of Nigerians for him, no matter what his self-serving, so-called advisers, who would claim that they love him more than God loves him and that without him, there would be no Nigeria say. 

"President Buhari needs a dignified and honourable dismount from the horse. He needs to have time to reflect, refurbish physically and recoup and after appropriate rest, once again, join the stock of Nigerian leaders whose experience, influence, wisdom and outreach can be deployed on the side line for the good of the country. His place in history is already assured. Without impaired health and strain of age, running the affairs of Nigeria is a 25/7 affair, not 24/7.

"I only appeal to brother Buhari to consider a deserved rest at this point in time and at this age."

Reactions have continued to trail the letter.
