BREAKING: Tension Everywhere, As President Buhari Shuts Up Olusegun Obasanjo, Explodes In Deep Anger, In Aso Rock

President Muhammadu Buhari, has Sunday night, lambasted former President, Olusegun Obasanjo, for attacking him and his government.

Recall, that Obasanjo had compared the All Progressives Congress, APC, administration, to that of the late General Sani Abacha era.

Reacting however, the Presidential Spokesman, Garba Shehu, in a statement, said: “The sixteen-page letter the former President, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, wrote to President Muhammadu Buhari, and released this afternoon, is the last push by desperate Politicians, who cannot handle the President politically, and have resorted to subterfuge.

“Our first message to the former President, is that he needs a good Doctor for good treatment, and to say to him, “Get well soon”.

“As repeatedly said of him, since Chief Obasanjo left office in 1979, he never let every succeeding Leader of the country function freely, and this included the one he personally handpicked against all known rules drawn up by the party that put him in the Office of the President. But Chief Obasanjo is jealous, because President Buhari has more esteem than him, and the sooner he learns to respect him the better.

“It is a notorious fact that in dealing with any Leader that he failed to control, he resorted to these puerile attacks. As the grand patron, more correctly the grandfather of corruption, as described by the National Assembly, Chief Obasanjo released today’s letter, purely for the reason of rescuing his thriving corruption establishment.

“The elections starting in February, will be free and fair, as promised the nation and the international community by President Buhari.

“What Chief Obasanjo and his co-travelers in the PDP should expect, is that from the outcome, we will teach them a political lesson that they will never forget. This margin will be much bigger than we had in 2015.

“Claims that President Buhari and the All Progressives Congress (APC) have embarked on the President’s “self- succession project, by recruiting collation officers, who are already awarding results based on their projects to actualise the perpetuation agenda, in which the people will not matter and the votes will not count”, is not only utterly false, but a copious note from the book on the failed third term agenda of President Obasanjo.

“The man, President Buhari who has taken Nigeria’s reputation to a higher level internationally, and is working hard to improve on the records of elections he found in place, cannot descend to the level that Obasanjo has himself sunk.

“As for his attacks of the administration’s records in fighting corruption, what the former President said is no more than evidence that President Buhari’s war against corruption is succeeding. They thought it is all a joke.

“A Leader who took USD 16 billion “upfront” to supply electric power, yet failed to add a single megawatt to the national grid, and to date, there is no trace of the money, is jittery that he will be called to account. He is a coward.

“Chief Obasanjo, manifesting a confused state of mind, blames President Buhari for the fall of Libya into a failed State, and the unholy alliance between the boko haram terrorists and the ISIS, while at the same time calling it an African problem, saying “the struggle must be for all West African, Central African, North African, and most East African States”, which really does not amount to saying anything new.

“Nigerians looked up to him as a role model and a ray of hope to ethical and clean leadership, until President Yar’Adua called him out to explain what happened to the sixteen billion dollars of taxpayer’s money. It is clear that with him sitting on top of the heap of corruption, he is no different from the crowd he leads.

“This language of his 16-page letter, likening President Buhari to General Sani Abacha, a man he dreaded; and the one who jailed him under Military laws, is most unfitting from a former President of Nigeria.

“The claim that President Buhari has put in place rigging machinery, is both outlandish and outrageous. We are unable to get the words to describe a 90-year old liar, except to say that by the publication of this tissue of lies against the President, he Obasanjo, not the President, will fall from everyone’s esteem.”

EARLIER!!!

The All Progressives Congress, APC, has said that former President, Olusegun Obasanjo, is being haunted by what he did while in Office, especially with regards to the conduct of elections.

Lanre Issa-Onilu, the National Publicity Secretary of the APC, stated this at a News Conference, on Sunday, in Abuja.

He was reacting to allegations by Obasanjo, that the APC-led Federal Government has concluded plans with the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, to rig the coming elections.

“For eight years of Obasanjo in Office, all the elections he held, infact, government policies were determined by whatever mood he found himself.

“All the institutions of government were brought under his wings, and what he did for those eight years, is what is haunting him.

“He cannot imagine that a government will allow INEC the statuary independence that it has.

“We have had 93 elections or morem since APC came to power, and you can be sure that all those elections were conducted without government interference.

“We can understand where the former President is coming from, his past is haunting him, he imagines that perhaps the way he did it, is the same way we will do it’’, Issa-Onilu said.

He added that the APC-led Federal Government had always allowed institutions to fulfill their mandates, without interference.

Issa-Onilu said that the 2003 and 2007 general elections, held under Obasanjo’s watch, were nothing to write home about.

He gave an assurance that under the APC government, votes would count in the coming general elections, assuring that the polls would be free, fair, and credible.

The APC Spokesman, added that the party had no reason to rig elections, because according to him, its achievements in all sectors of the country’s economy, would speak for it.

He however, advised Obasanjo to adjust himself to the reality of an imminent defeat, in the coming elections.

“He has carried himself about as the dispenser of our destiny, and God is showing him clearly that he has just only been lucky.

“And the favour that God has done to him, he now considers as the things that are coming from him.

“I think it is time for him to smell the coffin, this election will come, and it will be free and fair; APC does not have any reason to rig it’’, Issa- Onilu said.

He further maintained that after Feb. 16, Obasanjo “ would realise that he is not God.’’

Issa-Onilu stated that the APC is already campaigning round the country, even though the PDP had earlier said that President Muhammadu Buhari would campaign by proxy.

He also stressed that Atiku Abubakar, the PDP Presidential Candidate, personifies the dark era of the country.

Issa-Onilu said that the APC is poised to bring the country out of the doldrums that the PDP brought it to, with its 16 years of governance.
