Why Obasanjo Stormed Aso Rock In Search of President Muhammadu Buhari



Estimated Reading Time: <1

Former President, Olusegun Obasanjo on Monday delivered messages from the Presidents of Liberia and Gambia to President Muhammadu Buhari.

Obasanjo made this known while answering questions from State House correspondents after a closed meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari at the State House, Abuja.

Although the former president did not divulge the content of the message, he said he updated president Buhari on the outcome of the Annual General Meeting (AGM) of the Africa Export-Import Bank, which he attended in Seychelles Island.

“I have some messages for the president.

“Not too long ago, I was in Liberia and The Gambia and the presidents of these two countries had some messages that they would want me to deliver to the President.

“Also, only yesterday I came back from Seychelles Island, where I attended this year’s Annual General meeting of Africa Export –Import Bank.

“And there were aspects of the proceedings during that meeting that I think I should update the President on.’’ On the issue of budget padding, Obasanjo advised the President to always be vigilant, saying that the recent 2016 Budget scandal in the National Assembly had vindicated him.

Obasanjo had in January challenged the National Assembly to open the financial records of the Senate and the House of Representatives since 1999 to external bodies.

    Obasanjo is a lier. Because Buhari wants to open up a probe on the circumstances and who killed Mr. Bola Ige , and others, that is the reason for the visit.
    It should be remembered also , that Obasanjo paid a similar visit to Buhari when he, Buhari, wanted to open up investigations on the case of the Halliburton corruption which Obasanjo was deeply involved, and got a huge share of the loot.
    After that visit, Buhari closed the proposed probe, which would have involved/implicated Obasanjo.
    If Obasanjo has a message from both the Liberian and Gambian Presidents for Buhari, what kind of message is that? Is it how to rule the country or how to destroy the country? Mrs Sirfield, of Liberia is among the worst corrupt Presidents in Africa.
    She made her sons the Governor of the Liberian Central Bank and the Liberian National Oil Company Chairman respectively. Is that not corruption to the highest? Therefore what kind of message does she have for Buhari?
