The Special Adviser to President Muhammadu Buhari on media and publicity, Femi Adesina has berated former President, Olusegun Obasanjo, asking him to mind his utterances as he cannot wash his hands away from the current chaos in the country.
The presidential spokesman stated this in a piece on Friday titled, ‘Nigeria’s Unity and All The Iberiberism’.
The controversial media aide stated in the piece; ‘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 fired.
He went on to add that: ‘Nigeria will survive. The polity will endure. And the component parts will live together in amity and brotherhood. Any other option is Iberiberism.’
Obasanjo was a military head of state from February 1976 to September 1979, before becoming a democratically elected president between May 1999 and May 2007.
He recently wrote an open letter to Buhari, listing four avoidable calamities that can befall Nigeria.
