Former president, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo has thrown a potshot at
President Muhammadu Buhari and his government over the travails
of the Senate president, Bukola Saraki (Number Three citizen) and
the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara
(Number Four citizen).
Obasanjo, in a statement by his media aide, Kehinde Akinyemi, on
Friday, highlighted how members of All Progressives Congress, APC-
led government were being harassed.
He described alleged intimidation of Nigerians by the APC
government as a joke taken too far, claiming that this has resulted
in citizens living in fear of being killed.
The statement read, “This present Government has demonstrably
exhibited apathy, and in some cases, encouraged by its conduct,
daily loss of lives and property in many States of the country, the
office cannot be indifferent.
“We are currently in a nation where the Number Three citizen is
currently being harangued and the Number Four citizen is facing
similar threat within the same Government they serve.
“There is a groundswell of our nationals that live in fear that they
could be hounded, harassed, maimed or even killed as the battle for
2019 takes this worrisome dimension.
“For Chief Obasanjo, this is a joke carried too far and being someone
who do not act on unofficial information.”
