Obasanjo’s Letter To Buhari Sensational, Says Minister

Ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo’s letter to President Muhammadu Buhari is sensational, says minister of communications Adebayo Shittu.

Obasanjo had last week written to Buhari, advising him not to contest the 2019 election. He also lamented the unfulfilled promises by the present administration.

Shittu spoke on Monday to State House correspondents, saying Obasanjo cannot tell Nigerians who to vote for.

“Obasanjo, as a Nigerian has the right to hold an opinion. If Obasanjo holds an opinion that Mr. President has performed less than it should be, those of us who are in the position to know better, have a right to also state the other side which, perhaps, Obasanjo is ignorant of,” the minister said.

“You see, there are some people who enjoy engaging in sensationalism. With due respect to General Obasanjo, if you take his history over the last 30 years, there is hardly any administration other than his own that he did not criticise except Sani Abacha, who didn’t wait for Obasanjo to criticise him before he was sent to the gulag.

“So many Nigerians know that Obasanjo enjoys this type of sensationalisation. In any case, no matter what impression you have of me, do you have a right to tell me not to contest an election? I mean, we should talk like people who are educated, who know our left from the right.

“There are procedures for elections. President Buhari is a member of the APC and the APC has its rules and regulations as to how candidates will emerge.

“If members of the party feel that the president has not performed well enough, it is for them to show that during the primary election. It is not for anybody to short-change Nigerians and prevent people from offering themselves for election.”
