President Muhammadu Buhari has, for the first time, spoken about the open letter written to him by former President Olusegun Obasanjo.
Obasanjo, in January, wrote an explosive letter to Buhari, telling him not to run for second term in 2019, saying he was performing below expectation.
Buhari has now revealed that he did not want the minister of information, Lai Mohammed to reply the ex-President’s criticism about his administration.
However, the President noted that he let the minister reply Obasanjo so as to highlight his (Buhari’s) achievements since coming to power.
He said: “Even when the minister of information and culture wanted to reply that abusive letter written by former President Olusegun Obasanjo, I had wanted Lai not to reply the letter but I said I should allow him to highlight the achievements of our administration.”
