The Presidency has replied former President Olusegun Obasanjo for accusing Buhari of leaving Nigeria in a failed state.
Former President, Olusegun Obasanjo has been accused of being the country’s ‘Divider-in-Chief on Sunday by the Presidency over a comment he made concerning President Muhammadu Buhari.
Recall that Obasanjo had on Thursday said Nigeria was slowly becoming a failed state and a basket case that urgently needs to be pulled from the brink of collapse.
Speaking while delivering a speech titled “Moving Nigeria away from tipping over” at a consultative dialogue in Abuja, the former President said he had never seen Nigeria so divided, adding that many of the problems plaguing the country today were due to the recent mismanagement of Nigeria’s diversity.
But the Nigerian Government in a statement by Senior Special Assistant to the President Muhammadu Buhari on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, on Sunday said the former leader had become a divisive figure.
Shehu insisted that Obasanjo’s criticisms of President Buhari were devoid of good intentions, claiming that the former Nigerian leader wasn’t jealous of Buhari’s achievements.
