Obasanjo on an ‘unpatriotic’ duty – Sen. Adamu
Speaking to newsmen in Abuja yesterday while reacting to the letter the former president wrote to President Muhammadu Buhari, Senator Adamu said the utterances of Obasanjo seeks to undermine the integrity of the office of the president,
“I, too, cannot keep quiet when I see attempts by anyone or a group of persons undermine the integrity of the office of the president, the integrity of our government and the integrity of our political system.
“Chief Obasanjo said that President Buhari is selective in his anti-corruption war. I agree with him because if the president were not selective, Chief Obasanjo himself would be in the dock today on trial on charges of corruption arising from corrupt practices in the pursuit of his third term gambit in the national assembly in 2006.
“As a friend, I wish to advise the former president to pull back from the dangerous path of rubbishing all presidents that came into office after him. Bringing everyone down is not a patriotic duty,” he said.
He cautioned the former president to avoid any self-inflicted political wound, and advised him not to overreach himself and begin the inevitable descent into national nuisance and irrelevance.
