FCT, Abuja – The Senior Special Assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari on Media & Publicity, Garba Shehu has described former President Olusegun Obasanjo as jealous of the president and also morally squalid individual.
Mr Shehu also described Obasanjo as an ungrateful individual who attacks successive leaders out of frustration.
The former president had in a letter claimed that Mr Buhari had dragged the country below its 1999 status.
Responding, Garba Shehu in a statement on Monday, said Obasanjo is known to all that no one needs to describe who he is.
His statement reads:
“He will not stop attacking President Muhammadu Buhari because the former President won’t stop being jealous of anyone who beats him to a new record in the nation’s development process.
“President Buhari is ahead of Chief Obasanjo in all fields of national development and to do that is cardinal sin to Obasanjo whose hallucinations tell him that he is the best ever to lead Nigeria and there will never be another one better than him.
“President Buhari just completed the world class edifice that is the Second Niger Bridge after three decades of failed promises. It is now awaiting commissioning.
“Obasanjo laid the sod for the bridge in his first term as elected President and work never started.”
Garba also said Obasanjo lied to the Southeast about the Second Niger Bridge to get their votes, as against Buhari’s kind-hearted infrastructural development in the Southeast.
