A former Minister of Information, Prince Tony Momoh, has criticized former president Obasanjo heavily, describing him as unfortunate nuisance.
Momoh was reacting to the strong and lengthy statement Obasanjo released a few days earlier, where he likened Buhari’s regime to that of a late dictator and former president of Nigeria, General Sani Abacha.
In the statement, he also claimed that the Buhari-led APC government was determined to rig the February 2019 presidential elections.
“Looking at Obasanjo, my own take is that he has established himself as the most present former head of state in the history of Nigeria. He is present and vocal in every regime.
“He was present during Shagari’s time, he was present during Buhari’s first coming between 1984 and 1985, he was present during Babangida’s era between 1985 and 1993, he was present during Abacha’s time from 1993 to 1998, he was present during Abdulsalami Abubakar’s time, he was present during his own regime when he worked with Atiku Abubakar, whom he said can never be anything but has now come to be his agent.
“He was present during Umaru Yar’Adua’s time, he was present during Jonathan’s time and he is also present now.
“So, there is no time he has not shown his presence at any regime and God has given him good health for him to be able to be active. But looking at his records, he has shown to the average person that he is a loser and unfortunate nuisance. Obasanjo is national nuisance.”
