Buhari vs Obasanjo

On Tuesday this week, while speaking to a delegation of Buhari Support Organisation (BSO) at the Presidential Villa, President Muhammadu Buhari reportedly criticised previous Nigerian administrations for ruining Nigeria before he assumed office.

He was quoted to have said “railway in Nigeria was killed and one of the former Heads of State between that time was bragging that he spent more than 16 billion American dollars, not Naira, on power. Where is the power? Where is the power? And now we have to pay the debts”, a statement apparently directed towards former president, Olusegun Obasanjo.

Here’s how the former persident replied;

Shots fired! And then began the face-off between the two parties and their supporters. Here’s the social media version.

Abacha was trending in Nigeria

You see, our President was very busy this week giving us things to talk and argue about. Asides throwing major shades at his predecessors during his speech at the villa, the President also reportedly named the Petroleum Trust Fund (PTF) instituted by late Military Head of State, Sani Abacha as a “model project”.

According to Premium Times, he said, “no matter what opinion you have about Abacha, I agreed to work with him and the roads we did from PTF exist from here to Port Harcourt, to Onitsha, to Benin and so on.”

Many Nigerians were not impressed.
