Presidency Rejects Obasanjo’s Claims, Says They’re His Opinion
The Presidency has rejected former President Olusegun Obasanjo’s allegations against President Muhammadu Buhari.
Reacting to the allegations during his appearance on Sunday Politics, Mr Femi Adesina described the claims as mere opinion of the former President.
“Talking of the statement today, I can only say that it is the opinion of a man,” the Special Adviser to the President told Channels Television.
“There are about 196 million Nigerians; if one man says anything, it is just his opinion; it does not mean that is the gospel … this is a democracy, he has a right to it.”
Earlier, former President Obasanjo issued a statement in which he accused President Buhari of impunity and plot to rig the election.
He criticised the President for the trial of the Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Walter Onnoghen, and the recent appointment of Mrs Amina Zakari, among other issues.
The elder statesman had also said that President Buhari was putting into practice the lessons he allegedly learned from late General Sani Abacha.
