Ex President, Obasanjo Slams Senators Over Car Purchase


The former President said the move by the lawmakers is absolute nonsense.

You will recall that Obasanjo in a letter dated January 13, 2016, criticised the legislators for being insensitive to the economic situation in the country.

A move that saw the Senator representing Kogi west, Dino Melaye accusing the former President of introducing corruption into the national assembly in his bid to run for a third term in office.

Obasanjo who spoke on Monday, May 9, 2016, at the 3rd Covenant University International Conference on African Development, praised Presdent Buhari.

He also refuted claims that the Buhari led administration’s corruption war is only targeted at the opposition.

The former President also said “PMB served under me and I know him a little bit. He hasn’t deviated from what I knew him for. Actually he is not a perfect man, indeed no leader can be perfect.”

OBJ added that “Buhari might not be grounded in both the economy and foreign affairs, he is doing well in fighting Boko Haram and in his anti-corruption crusade. I am very optimistic as far as Nigeria is concerned because we have somebody that will do it well as president.”

The former President caused a stir across the nation on Friday, February 5, 2016, when he said the abducted Chibok girls might never return.
