Former Aviation Minister, Femi Fani-Kayode, has reacted to the ongoing faceoff between President Muhammadu Buhari and former President Olusegun Obasanjo.
The former minister regretted that Obasanjo made the greatest mistake not prosecuting and jailing Buhari for alleged looting of billions as Petroleum Trust Funds (PTF) boss.
Obasanjo, who had continued to insist that Buhari should not be re-elected over his administration’s alleged incompetence, impunity and nepotism among others, had recently begged Afenifere, the apex Yoruba group, to join him to ensure Buhari is sent packing from Presidential Villa in 2019.
Responding, Buhari had told Obasanjo that he had questions to answer over the $16 billion his administration expended on power budget without any meaningful result.
Obasanjo had fired back and said that no president “with proper understanding of the issue would utter such” thing as Buhari did on the issue of the $16 billion power project during his government.
In his reaction on the matter, Fani-Kayode wrote on his Twitter handle, “PMB to OBJ, ‘where is the power?’
“FFK to PMB, ‘where is your brain?’
“The greatest mistake that OBJ made was not to prosecute and jail @MBuhari for looting PTF funds. I saw the report and it was shocking. Billions of dollars had vanished. OBJ summoned him and showed him the damning report. Buhari begged like a baby. Sadly OBJ let him off the hook.”
