- Former president Obasanjo has been told that he has no moral right to criticise President Muhammadu Buhari
- Ex-national chairman of Alliance for Democracy, Alhaji Abdulkarim Daiyabu, says Obasanjo committed 125 impeachable offences during his time as president
- Daiyabu says instead of being impeached, Obasanjo was busy impeaching Senate presidents and speakers
Former national chairman of Alliance for Democracy (AD), Alhaji Abdulkarim Daiyabu, has said former president Olusegun Obasanjo has no moral right to criticise President Muhammadu Buhari because of impeachable offences he committed during his tenure as president.
Daiyabu, who is also the leader of Forward with Buhari, said the ex-president committed 125 impeachable offenses while he held sway as Nigeria's president, Daily Trust reports.
Legit.ng gathers that the APC chieftain made the assertion on Monday, January 21, during a press briefing.
Daiyabu called on Nigerians to question Obasanjo on the huge revenue generated when he was president, including the $16 billion said to have been spent on power sector which produced no power.
He said: “What Nigeria made from 1999 to 2015 from oil is more than what the country made from 1914 when it was amalgamated till 1999. Where is the money? We know that we have $16 billion in his hand from electricity.
“You can equally recall that as president of this country, Obasanjo committed 125 impeachment offences and instead of being impeached, he was busy impeaching senate presidents and speakers. By the grace of God, all there [sic] will be reversed and we shall take over and continue to address all these things."
Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that Obasanjo declared that President Buhari would return to Daura, his home town in Katsina state, if the 2019 presidential election is free, fair, peaceful and credible.
Obasanjo made this declaration when he addressed journalists at the Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library in Abeokuta, Ogun state, on Sunday, January 20.
The former ECOWAS chairman whose address did not last more than eight minutes, simply gave out a booklet titled ‘points for concern and action’ and asked the journalists present to go through it.

On page 14 of the booklet, Obasanjo wrote: “While Nigerians must appreciate Buhari for the little he has done and allow him to depart for home in peace if he allows free, fair, peaceful and credible elections, we must also tell ourselves that Nigeria deserves better at this point in time than what Buhari is capable of offering."
