Presidency keeps mum, as Obasanjo flogs Buhari

The Nigerian presidency has kept mum over the excoriating public statement issued by former President Olusegun Obasanjo calling on President Muhammadu Buhari not to run for re-election.

Garba Shehu, Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity to Mr Buhari, declined comments when reached by  Premium Times for reaction to the statement.

He said the presidency has no comment at this time but will inform the media if it decided to.

In the biting statement, Mr Obasanjo slammed President Buhari for the worsening economic situation in the country, “clannishness” and his inability to take responsibility for the failings of his administration.

Mr. Obasanjo also dismissed the ruling All Progressive Congress and the main opposition Peoples Democratic Party as lacking the ingredient to salvage the country.

He called for a another political movement, which he christened Coalition for Nigeria, to oust the present political class and save the country from an impending doom.

Citing the scandalous recall of fugitive pension task force head, Abduralsheed Maina, to public service, Mr. Obasanjo accused Mr. Buhari of nepotism and inability to instill discipline “in his nepotistic court”.
