Obasanjo’s Letter Is Abusive – President Buhari
President Muhammadu Buhari for the first time, after some weeks, replied to a letter by ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo as he described it as abusive.
Buhari said this during an interview with Voice of America, Hausa Service in Washington DC, adding that he would not have loved to say anything about the letter.
Obasanjo had written a letter to Buhari, asking him not to contest for the second term in office. Obasanjo also criticized Buhari’s economic policies and condemned the president’s clannish attitude.
While responding to questions, Buhari stated that he did not want anybody from his cabinet to reply Obasanjo except the Minister of Information who chose the opportunity to reel out the achievements of the administration for the public, including Obasanjo to see.
On his comment on Nigerian youths, Buhari said that the media misrepresented him, adding that most media houses in the country hardly practice developmental journalism.
He explained that most youths in the north do not have quality education and they always migrate to seek greener pasture elsewhere.
“However, due to the big crop harvest in the north last year, many of them stayed at home. Without this, the situation would have been worse,” President Buhari said.
