The presidency says former President, Olusegun Obasanjo is jealous of the growing profile of President Muhammadu Buhari. Garba Shehu, the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media & Publicity, made this known in a statement Monday.
Shehu said Obasanjo has been well known for being jealous of anyone who beats him to a new record in the nation’s development process.
He said among other things, that OBJ has become jealous of the growing profile of President Buhari as the Champion of Democracy not only at home and in the West African subregion but the African continent as whole.
He therefore stressed that Obasanjo’s vengeful attitude towards President Buhari is the height of selfishness and little short of moral squalor.
The statement reads:”Former President Obasanjo is so well known to all that no one needs to describe who he is.
“But, four things we will like to say:
“One is that he will not stop attacking President Muhammadu Buhari because the former President won’t stop being jealous of anyone who beats him to a new record in the nation’s development process.
“President Buhari is ahead of Chief Obasanjo in all fields of national development and to do that is cardinal sin to Obasanjo whose hallucinations tell him that he is the best ever to lead Nigeria and there will never be another one better than him.
“President Buhari just completed the world class edifice that is the Second Niger Bridge after three decades of failed promises. It is now awaiting commissioning.
“Obasanjo laid the sod for the bridge in his first term as elected President and work never started.
