Tinubu attacks Obasanjo, faults ex-President’s statement



A National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Senator Bola Tinubu, has attacked ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo over the statement he made concerning the President Muhammadu Buhari administration recently.

Tinubu said that Obasanjo did not mean well by making such public statement.

He said Obasanjo would have met with Buhari to talk about the issues he raised in the letter.

Tinubu spoke with journalists when he visited Governor Rochas Okorocha in company of the pioneer National Chairman of APC, Chief Bisi Akande, at the Government House Owerri, on Friday.

Tinubu said, “They both had the same background. So, I believe that would have been the conversation of retired military heads of State.

“They have unfettered access to each other, either through the Council of State or via any other means. He could see the President privately.

“He (Obasanjo) was also his (Buhari) senior in the army. I think Obasanjo was playing politics with the public letter. That is all I see.

“They also met at the African Union meeting. He has a way of discussing with the President any time he wants.”
