- Prof. Itse Sagay (SAN) has questioned former president Olusegun Obasanjo over the latter's criticisms of President Buhari
- According to Sagay, Obasanjo has no following in Nigeria and he had no hand in Buhari's victory in 2015
- Sagay added that Obasanjo is suffering God's punishment for breaking the promise he made that God will punish him if he ever forgives and supports Atiku
The chairman of the Presidential Advisory Committee Against Corruption (PACAC), Prof. Itse Sagay (SAN), has slammed former president Olusegun Obasanjo over the latter's criticisms of President Muhammadu Buhari.
According to him, the victory of President Buhari in the coming presidential election would bury Obasanjo politically.
"God has decided not to forgive him and so, this present outbursts and shenanigans he has embarked upon is a like curse from God. God is exposing him and making him a subject of ridicule and scorn in Nigeria," Sagay told Independent.
Going further, he added that: "That is the punishment he is suffering from God for breaking that promise he made that God will punish him if he ever forgives and support Atiku. I heard he is planning to embark on foreign tour for Atiku.
"I hope they will all come and vote on the February I6. These people just fool themselves; they don’t know what it’s all about. To start with, this whole Obasanjo thing is a myth.
"He doesn’t have any following in Nigeria. Absolutely no following! Buhari won in 2015 because he is popular. It has nothing to do with Obasanjo. This time, I am even glad Obasanjo is against Buhari because the landslide will be more than the votes he got in 2015 and it will bury Obasanjo forever politically."
Obasanjo is one of Buhari's greatest critics. He recently alleged that leaders of the ruling All Progressives Congress will be thrown into hell fire if their records are examined.
In reaction to hi recent outburst, some clerics across Nigeria declared a 30-day deliverance session for the former president. The clerics under the aegis of the National Inter-Faith and Religious Organisation for Peace said Obasanjo's problem is beyond ordinary, hence, the call for prayer.
Meanwhile, a group of protesters took to the streets of Lagos over the recent attack on President Buhari. The protesters in their scores accused Obasanjo of plans to install an interim government against the will of the people.
The individuals under the aegis of Coalition for Defence of Democracy in Nigeria (CDDN) also called on the federal government to drop its tolerant attitude and put the pressure on Obasanjo to immediately call off all the attacks that are planned against the interests of Nigeria.
