Director, Strategic Communications of President Muhammadu Buhari’s 2019 campaign, Festus Keyamo (SAN) has described former President Olusegun Obasanjo’s statement as a “childish prank”.
Obasanjo had on Friday claimed that Buhari’s government was planning to frame him and consequently kill him by plotting his arrest on false charges.
He said part of the plan was for the president to seize his International passport and clamp him into detention indefinitely.
Reacting on his Twitter page, Keyamo said Obasanjo was desperate for attention away from criticism of his failure to declare June 12 Democracy Day throughout his eight years in power.
He wrote: “Obasanjo’s outcry is for two reasons: 1. To attract unearned sympathy to himself in order to deflect the damage the immortalisation of June 12 has done to his image as the main antagonist of Abiola’s mandate.
“2. To dampen the accolades going the way of PMB over the issue. It’s childish prank.”
