Former President of Nigeria Olusegun Obasanjo lambasted current President Goodluck Jonathan in an open letter, writing that it would be "fatally morally flawed" for Jonathan to seek re-election in 2015. In the letter, Obasanjo harshly critiques Jonathan on a wide range of issues, including economic policy, Christian-Muslim unity, state security, and corruption.
