Senator Shehu Sani (PRP-Kaduna Central) has mocked supporters of President Muhammadu Buhari for attacking former President Olusegun Obasanjo.
Obasanjo has been vocal against past and present leaders he felt have failed Nigerians.
The former president had in the past launched attacks on ex-Military president Ibrahim Babangida and ex-President Goodluck Jonathan.
Recently, he has turned his attention to the administration of Buhari.
Obasanjo on Sunday reiterated his call on Nigerians not to reelect Buhari in 2019.
Obasanjo, who was Nigeria’s president from 1999 to 2007, said his former ally had done almost nothing to reposition Africa’s most populous nation.
He had in January accused Buhari of being nepotistic and said the president was lacking in the requisite capacity to improve Nigeria.
However, the former president stand did not go down well with some pro-Buhari supporters who attacked Obasanjo on social media.
Reacting in a post on Twitter on Monday, Shehu Sani wrote: “When Obj was whipping Abacha, IBB, Umaru, and GEJ, You gave him flowers; And now he is lashing Baba, You are throwing thorns at him.
“The sweet chocolate in your mouth has turned to bitter Kola.
“When you see Obj lashing your enemy with Koboko, pad your own body with thick layers of cotton.”
