Obasanjo under fresh fire over Democracy Day comments

Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has come under attack for criticizing June 12 Democracy Day celebration.

A statement from President Muhammadu Buhari Media Organisation signed by the chairman, Niyi Akinsiju and Secretary, Cassidy Madueke, accused Obasanjo of not seeing anything good in another leader, as he had rated late President Umar Yar’Adua and former President Goodluck Jonathan’s administrations low.

Also, his eight-year administration (1999-2007) came under questioning for allegedly doing nothing on the assassination of the late Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Chief Bola Ige.

BMO said that Obasanjo was just being petty and mischievous with his latest tirade against President Muhammadu Buhari on the occasion of the maiden celebration of June 12 as Democracy Day in the country.

The statement claimed that he (Obasanjo) was bitter that President Buhari took measured steps to immortalise the late Moshood Abiola, the presumed winner of the June 12 1993 election.
