Fayose to Obasanjo: You lack moral rights to attack Buhari, says ‘the more you fight yourselves, the better for Nigeria’


Ekiti State Governor, Mr. Ayodele Fayose, has said that former
President Olusegun Obasanjo should rather be ready to clear his name
of any allegation made against him and stop raising alarm on plot to
arrest and try him, pointing out that; “Nigerians are being humiliated
and tried every day by the dictatorial government of President
Muhammadu Buhari that he (Obasanjo) helped to enthrone. Some of us
have gone through trials before and we are not afraid of trials even

The governor, who said Obasanjo deserves whatever humiliation he was
getting from President Muhammadu Buhari, added: “The President can go ahead and arrest Obasanjo if he desires but he should remember that what goes around comes around. He won’t be President forever too. After all, they have been intimidating and humiliating former
President Goodluck Jonathan and his wife.”

Fayose referred to Page 96 of Obasanjo’s book, ‘My Watch’, in
which he wrote that; ‘…I prefer him (Buhari) to jail me than Jonathan
to return to destroy this nation…,’ noting that; “Since Obasanjo
himself said he preferred to be jailed by Buhari and worked for his
enthronement, the President can hasten his arrest and imprisonment.
Obasanjo should not be afraid to go to prison now.”

In a statement on Saturday by his Special Assistant on Public
Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka, Fayose said: “When other Nigerians were at the receiving end of President Buhari’s dictatorship, Obasanjo was going in and out of the Presidential Villa.

“Where was he when Col. Sambo Dasuki (rtd) was arrested and detained
since 2015, despite court orders for his release? When over 1,000 members of Nigeria’s Islamic Movement were killed in Zaria and their leader, Ibrahim El-Zakzaky, arrested and dumped in detention since 2016 despite court orders, what did Obasanjo do?

“Where was Obasanjo when armed men of the DSS invaded the Ekiti State
House Assembly and abducted one of its members? Did Obasanjo travel
out of Nigeria when judges were being arrested in the night in a
Gestapo manner?

“Obasanjo lacks moral rights to complain about Buhari’s government
because himself and the President have been partners for over 40
years. It was when President Buhari served as Minister of Petroleum
and NNPC Chairman in 1977 under Obasanjo that N2.8 billion oil money
went missing from the accounts of the NNPC in Midlands Bank, United

“Both Buhari and Obasanjo are already spent forces and have gone
senile. Nigerians no longer need the two old men and the more they
fight themselves, the better for the country.”

Fayose, who declared that his prediction about President Buhari going after and consuming those who imposed him on Nigerians has come to pass, added that apart from Obasanjo, more of those who
made Buhari President will still be humiliated.
