Oshiomhole to Obasanjo: “You are worse than Abacha”
Adams Oshiomhole, national chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), declares that ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo is a worse dictator than Sani Abacha, ex-military head of state.
He made the statement in response to an allegation by the ex-president that the President Buhari’s administration was taking Nigeria back to the dark days of General Sani Abacha when institutions of State was used to crack down on opponents of the rulling regime.
Obasanjo on responding to the unconstitutional removal of the Chief Justice of the Federation (CJN) Just Onoghen, pointed: “Today, another Abacha Era is here. The security institutions are being misused to fight all critics and opponents of Buhari and to derail our fledgling democracy”.
However, on reaction to Obasanjo’s comment, Oshiomhole, In a Channel Tv programme disagreed:
“Let’s face it, Obasanjo can’t look me in the eyes and say those things. He is a worse dictator, he was worse than Abacha,” Oshiomhole said.
“How many people disappeared under Abacha’s watch compared to the number of Nigerians that disappeared under Obasanjo’s watch including his own attorney general who didn’t get justice. He is not a fit and proper person.
“Don’t talk about Obasanjo, let’s face it. The problem I have is that in Nigeria, Obasanjo seems to have his cake and have it. He cannot talk about morality. Nigeria’s democracy cannot be stable if the rules are only made for the poor.”
