Obasanjo accuses Buhari of nepotism, says his aides will go to hell over corruption
Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has reiterated his stand about Buhari -led administration as a corrupt one.
Obasanjo, a former president and unrepentant critic of Buhari-led administration has declared that most of the officials in the Buhari-led government will not only go to jail but also go to hell if the entire administration is investigated for corruption.
This statement was uttered by the former President while granting an interview with BBC Yoruba where he compared President Buhari with his former Vice-President and Presidential Candidate of the People’s Democratic Party in 2019.
Obasanjo said Atiku would have done far better than President Buhari if given the opportunity eventhough the former vice-president is not a messiah.
“What I am saying is that where we are today, our present situation, if you look at those who are there today and our boss, I insist that Atiku will do better than them.
This is not a prophecy. Those in government today, if we expose them, all of them will enter hell; they will not only go to jail. They will go to hell. Whoever that God does not expose his sins to the public is the person whose secret is kept.
I did not say he will behave like Jesus. I did not say he will behave like Prophet Muhammed but he will do better, in fact twice better than what we have at present”, he said.
The former President also accused President Buhari of nepotism, alleged that he appoints his maternal and paternal relatives into offices because he trusted them while he ignores over 500 tribes because he did not trust them.
“Look at what is happening, the person that is leading us says he cannot appoint any other tribes into the posts he considers sensitive because he does not trust them. If he cannot trust my tribe and your tribe what is the benefit? And he still wants my tribe and your tribe to vote for him. So, he can ask us to vote for him but he cannot trust us to be appointed into sensitive positions. What is sauce for the goose is also sauce for the gander.
“If you don’t trust us, how do you want me to trust you? If you trust me and I misbehave replace me with another person. But if only your maternal and paternal relatives are the only people you can appoint because they are the only people you can trust…
“In Nigeria, where we have tribes numbering about 500, you now said you could not trust some people. That is what we are saying.”, he said.
