‘You are sick in the spirit, body and soul’ — Obasanjo bombs Buhari again

Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has fired yet another shot at President Muhammadu Buhari, saying he is sick in the spirit, body and soul.

The elder statesman said this in an interview with BBC Yoruba.

The former president said Buhari needs to rest and allow another person to take charge of the country.

Obasanjo said when people complain to him that the next person may not do better, he tells them that democracy gives room for replacement.

“Buhari is sick in the spirit, body and soul. Let’s beg him to go and rest. He has tried his best. Let give chance to another person,” Obasanjo said.

“When people ask me that what if the next person is not suitable, I tell them that is the beauty of democracy.”

In his state of the nation address on Sunday, Obasanjo accused the president of taking the country back to the Sani Abacha era.

He accused the Buhari government of derailing the country’s fledgling democracy by using security institutions to fight its critics.

“EFCC, Police and Code of Conduct Tribunal are also being equally misused to deal with those Buhari sees as enemies for criticising him or as those who may not do his bidding in manipulating election results. Criticism, choice and being different are inherent trade mark of democracy. If democracy is derailed or aborted, anarchy and authoritarianism will automatically follow,” Obasanjo had said.
