Obasanjo has no right to accuse anyone of corruption - Adebanjo

Afenifere chieftain and social critic, Chief Ayo Adebanjo has said former president Olusegun Obasanjo has no moral right to accuse anyone of being corrupt. He stated this in reaction to his latest attack on President Muhammadu Buhari.

 

Speaking during the presentation of his book “Tell it as it is” in Lagos, on Tuesday, Adebanjo described the former President as a “whited sepulchre.”

He said Obasanjo had not disputed that he had only N20,000 in his bank account when he returned from the prison in 1999, adding that former Vice-President, Atiku Abubakar, and a businessman, Oyewole Fasawe, saved him from bankruptcy.

The constitutional lawyer noted that in a decent clime, people like Obasanjo would never feature in public life again.

He said was amazed how people continued to give “Obasanjo undue prominence in spite of his known character.”

Adebanjo said he was sure that “when a real government of the people comes into power, they would take Obasanjo’s Presidential Library Complex in Abeokuta” from the former President
