Obasanjo says that Western Liberal Democracy as a form of Governance is not Working in Africa
Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has said that western liberal democracy as a form of governance is not working in Africa, because it was imposed on the continent.
He suggested the introduction of ‘afro democracy’ to replace the western liberal democracy now in vogue in Africa.
Obasanjo made the call in Abeokuta on Monday, at a high level consultation on ‘rethinking western liberal democracy for Africa at the Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library Complex.
He said that the western liberal democracy is a government of a few people over all the people of the population.
According to him, these few people emerging from the system are only some of the people and not full representatives of the people.
