Femi Adesina, special assistant to the President Muhammadu Buhari on media and publicity, has said Buhari will not reply former president Olusegun Obasanjo‘s most recent criticism, The Cable reports.
Obasanjo, while hosting the New Nigeria Group in Abeokuta, described the Buhari-led administration as a failure.
Adesina, addressing the comments, said Obasanjo was Buhari’s superior in the military, and so Buhari has nothing to say.
Obasanjo’s most recent comments aren’t any different from what he wrote in his open letter, Adesina said, and that has already been addressed.
Obasanjo’s comments are merely opinions, Adesina added. He said:
The thing I will like us to establish is that President Muhammadu Buhari will never join issues with former president Olusegun Obasanjo.
Former president Obasanjo was his superior in the military. President Buhari was a minister under his military regime, so President Buhari will never join issues with him.
What former president Obasanjo has just said is not different from what he said in his letter of January 23 and an adequate response has been given to that letter by the minister of information, Lai Mohammed.
The response that Alhaji Mohammed gave to that letter suffices for whatever Obasanjo has said. It’s an opinion and the thing about opinions is that they are free.
