Obasanjo Attacks Buhari Because Of His Track Records — Presidency

The new year’s day endorse­ment of Peter Obi, the candi­date of the Labour Party (LP), for the 2023 presidential polls appears to have ignited more fireworks in the Nigerian polity as the presidency has reacted to the latest development.

In criticising Obasanjo, Gar­ba Shehu, Senior Special Assis­tant on Media and Publicity to the President, took to a lengthy statement on Monday to reply the ex-President, saying he would naturally stop at nothing to attack the person of Buhari because of his track records.

According to the presiden­tial spokesman, Obasanjo is famed for being jealous, hence attacks anyone who beats him to a new record in the nation’s development process.

Recall that Obasanjo took to his new year’s message to Nigerians, especially youths, to endorse the candidature of Obi, a development that elicited diverse reactions from most of the political gladiators, includ­ing the candidates of APC and PDP, Bola Ahmed Tinubu and Atiku Abubakar, respectively.

Shehu said President Bu­hari stands miles ahead of Chief Obasanjo in all fields of national development, a feat regarded as cardinal sin to Obasanjo whose hallucina­tions tell him that he is the best ever to lead Nigeria and there will never be another one better than him.

Shehu also reminded pun­dits that President Buhari just completed the world class ed­ifice that is the second Niger Bridge after three decades of failed promises, saying it is now awaiting commissioning.

He said Obasanjo laid the sod for the bridge in his first term as elected president but failed to complete the work.

Also taking a swipe on the former president, Shehu not­ed that when he (Obasanjo) sought re-election for his sec­ond term in office, he returned to the site to turn the sod for the bridge the second time.
