Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has again taken a swipe at President Muhammadu Buhari, referring to him as a failure.
Obasanjo said this while denying the reports that he has decided to endorse Buhari’s second term.
The elder statesman, had in a letter to Buhari in January, revealed his position to the President, advising him not to run for a second term.
In the letter, Obasanjo advised Buhari against seeking re-election, saying doing so would amount to overstretching the tolerance level of Nigerians.
Earlier this week while in the US, Buhari revealed that he initially did not want to reply Obasanjo’s abusive letter but he finally decided to.
However, in a statement issued on Obasanjo’s behalf by Kehinde Akinyemi, his media aide, the ex-president accused some “desperate elements” in Buhari’s camp of spreading falsehood against him.
Obasanjo said they are trying to create the impression that he is now in support of Buhari’s second term.
Obasanjo has however slammed Buahri further, even mocking the President for his recent meeting with US President, Donald Trump
“For the record, Obasanjo has not and cannot endorse failure. His position remains as stated in his January 23rd, 2018 statement on the state of the nation.
“Chief Obasanjo sympathises with the plight of those campaigners and supporters of Buhari. He doesn’t believe dishing out fake news that can only be believed by imbeciles will turn black into white.
“For whatever the meeting was worth, President Buhari again bungled another opportunity to self-redeem. No wonder President Trump ordered him in a rather condescending manner to go back home and stop the killings going on in Nigeria!”
