Former President Obasanjo slams President Buhari again


Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has accused President Muhammadu Buhari of returning the country to the era when state institutions were used to fight perceived enemies of the government.

Obasanjo made the allegation yesterday while briefing reporters at his residence in Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital.

The former number one citizen alleged that the President was putting into practice, the lessons he allegedly learned from late General Sani Abacha.

In another open letter entitled “Point for Concern and Action”, Obasanjo accused President Buhari of planning to rig the elections and intimidating the private sector.

He also alleged that President Buhari has attacked the National Assembly and intimidated the Judiciary to “cow them to submission”.

The former President, however, called on Nigerians to use the elections to make a statement by electing only leaders that can put the country on the path of progress.
