Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has disclosed that he won’t stop criticising the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari until he does the right thing for the country.
Obasanjo stated this on Tuesday during an event to mark his 82nd birthday celebration at the Obasanjo Presidential Library in Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital.
The former military head of state revealed that he has nothing personal with Buhari and that his purpose of criticising him was to ensure total transformation of the nation’s economic.
“Buhari; there is nothing personal between me and him. I am his boss, with all due respect
“The point is that I have been in that position longer than any Nigerian will ever be there.
“The purpose of criticism was to deepen democracy and ensure economic growth and development of the nation.
“You see that in a democracy, to criticise a policy of government is not a family affair; even if it is my brother that is there and is not doing the things that I believe he should do, he must be criticised.
“That is what democracy is all about. So, if I say anybody in government in Nigeria or any government in Africa is not doing well, let that government prove that it is doing well; it is not taking things personally,” he reiterated.
