The Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, have advised Obasanjo to be bold enough to clear himself of any allegation.
The Ekiti State governor said Obasanjo should be ready to clear his name of any allegation against him and stop raising the alarm on the plot to arrest and try him.
Fayose submitted that Obasanjo deserved whatever “humiliation” he got, advising Buhari to, however, remember that he would one day leave the office.
“The President can go ahead and arrest Obasanjo if he desires but he should remember that what goes around comes around. He won’t be President forever too.
“After all, they have been intimidating and humiliating former President Goodluck Jonathan and his wife.”
Speaking through his Special Assistant on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka, Fayose made a reference to Page 96 of Obasanjo’s book, ‘My Watch’, in which he claimed Obasanjo wrote; ‘…I prefer him (Buhari) to jail me to Jonathan to return to destroy this nation…,’
He added, “Since Obasanjo himself said he preferred to be jailed by Buhari and worked for his enthronement, the president can hasten his arrest and imprisonment. Obasanjo should not be afraid to go to prison now.
“Where was he when Col. Sambo Dasuki (retd.) was arrested and detained since 2015 despite court orders for his release? When over 1,000 members of Nigeria’s Islamic Movement were killed in Zaria and their leader, Ibrahim El-Zakzaky, arrested and dumped in detention since 2016 despite court orders. What did Obasanjo do?
“Where was Obasanjo when armed men of the DSS (Department of State Services invaded the Ekiti State House Assembly and abducted one of its members? Did Obasanjo travel out of Nigeria when judges were being arrested in the night in a Gestapo manner?”
