President Muhammadu Buhari’s Special Assistant, Femi Adesina has lashed out on former President Olusegun Obasanjo, following the latter’s open letter to Buhari.
Adesina who is a seasoned defender of his Principal, noted that General Obasanjo (rtd) has no moral right to criticise the current administration because he contributed to what Nigeria is to today.
This was contained in an opinion article he wrote on Friday, titled ‘Nigeria’s Unity and All The Iberiberism.’
“And what of Olusegun Obasanjo, a civil war hero. Despite all that he has contributed to the current upheavals by his actions and inactions, words and bile, he says it is idiotic to wish Nigeria disintegration now. Good.”
“But let us put our money where our mouth is. Let Baba mind his thoughts, and his language,” Adesina wrote.
He added: “Nigeria will survive. The polity will endure. And the component parts will live together in amity and brotherhood. Any other option is Iberiberism.”
