objbuhari - Greeting Buhari does not Change the gravity of my Letter - Obasanjo


Former President, Olusegun Obasanjo has reacted to comments on pictures of his meeting with president Muhammadu Buhari a few days after his scathing letter was made public.

Nigerians had mixed feelings upon seeing pictures of OBJ exchanging pleasantries with Buhari in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, a few days after the former leader published a 13-page letter criticizing the president’s performance and handling of the nation’s affairs.

Speaking on the development in Oke Ilewo in Abeokuta, Ogun state on Thursday, Obasanjo said;

“Last week, I issued a statement which I did not do lightly or frivolously but out of deep concern for the situation of our country.

I wonder why some Nigerians were worried why I had to pay respect to the Nigerian president at Addis Ababa. That’s my own upbringing as a well-born and bred Yoruba boy.


That doesn’t mean that what I have said about the president, which I did not say out of bitterness and hatred… it is evidence that the president has performed, in some areas, good enough.

In other areas not good and the proper advice I gave, which he may take and he may not take.

I didn’t do that out of malice or out of ‘bad belle’. I did it out of my respect for that office and my interest and I hope in your interest and the interest of Buhari.”
