Taiwo Obasanjo, the estranged wife of ex-president Olusegun Obasanjo, has concluded plans to float a new political party, Abundant Blessing Congress, ABC.
Taiwo, in a recent interview with The Sun said her aim of floating a political party was a divine assignment from God.
According to her, “I have a divine assignment from God to come out with something like this. It has a divine agenda. What is the divine agenda? What is the agenda? It is to create a selfless platform for people to come together and become the custodian, part and parcel towards rebuilding this nation.
“We shouldn’t leave it to only the government of the day to run. It is going to be a kind of shadow government, that will also externalise itself in all that they want to do for the nation. The Abundant Blessing Congress will also be internalizing what they want to do and that’s what we are going to externalize in the nation. That’s why I said we shall have a shadow government, because right now, what we have doesn’t make me happy,” she said.
Taiwo advised Nigerians against blaming President Muhammadu Buhari for the nation’s woes, saying the current administration is laying a foundation for a better tomorrow.
