Buhari: Briggs attacks Obasanjo, lists former president’s sins


Environmental activist and convener of the Niger Delta Self-Determination Movement, NDSDM, Ann-Kio Briggs has called out former president Olusegun Obasanjo.

The attack came following the former president’s latest criticism of the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari.

Obasanjo had during the weekend described Buhari’s government as a ‘failure’. 

Briggs, in a statement issued yesterday, said Obasanjo himself was a failure for single handedly imposing leaders who have consistently failed Nigerians.

She said Obasanjo allowed the country to die under his watch.

According to her, “You brought late Umaru Musa Yar’Adua as president against the desire of the Fulani cabal, and single-handedly picked President Gooluck Jonathan in your calculations to suit your own plans, and vengeful nature to destroy the ambition of another Niger Delta son, and God showed you he is the rightful owner of the hearts of men whether they be good or bad men.

“Today you have jumped ship again, claiming you don’t want to reinforce failure. Nigeria died under your watch.

“Nigerians kept thinking Nigeria was in a coma. It is clear that this last failure will pull the plug on the life support machine keeping Nigeria alive Niger Delta oil and gas.”
