SAN FRANCISCO, February 02, (THEWILL) – National leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, has accused former President Olusegun Obasanjo of Playing Politics with his open letter to President Muhammadu Buhari, where he accused Buhari of non-performance.
Tinubu, a former Governor of Lagos State, made this known during a stopover in Owerri, the Imo State capital, on his way to Anambra State for the burial ceremony of late former Vice President in the company of another APC leader, Chief Bisi Akande.
Tinubu declared that Obasanjo could have exploited other better ways of communicating his observations about the Buhari’s administration other than open letter if not politically motivated.
He further stated that the party will respond to the Coalition of Nigeria Movement launched by the former President at the appropriate time.
“Obasanjo wrote it about the government. It is a very good awareness on his part and they are both from the same background. I believe that is the doctrine of Military Officers (retired) because he has unrestricted access to the President, either through the Council of State or by any other means that he need to see the current President privately and he was his junior in the Army,” he stated.
“So I think Obasanjo was playing politics with his public letter that’s all I see. He could have used other means, he met him in the AU too he has a way of discussing privately but the letter is being responded to by the government.
“The appropriate time is not now for response on the Coalition Movement but we are in a democracy, we are in a country that is a signatory to the Charter of the United Nation which guarantees free movement, free association and free speech”.
