$16bn Power Projects: Why Buhari Should Not Probe Obasanjo – Shehu Sani

Shehu Sani, lawmaker representing Kaduna Central, has advised President Muhammadu Buhari against probing former president, Olusegun Obasanjo.

Mr Sani gave the advise on Tuesday in a tweet on his Twitter handle.

The latest political battle between messrs Obasanjo and Buhari started on Sunday with the former accusing the latter of planning to rig the forthcoming general election.

The president, in return, promised to teach the former president and his cohorts a political lesson they won’t forget throughout their life time on planet earth.

Prior to the latest feud, Mr Buhari had accused Obasanjo of looting $16bn on power projects during his reign without corresponding power supply to Nigerians.

This came after Obasanjo advised him not to seek a second term in office on account of sheer incompetence, nepotism among others.

The former president while claiming that previous investigations on the allegation carried out by separate bodies did not indict him challenged the president to also carry out his own investigation.

For the Kaduna lawmaker, the president should be careful because names of most of his allies would crop up if the matter is investigated again.

“If you decide to open & probe the Kitchen and the food store left by Obj because of his bitter leaf letters,you will see the names of many people on your dining table today,the table manners and the cutlery they used for his spaghetti is the same they are using for your noodles,” Sani said.

As at press time, it is unclear if the president has ordered the matter be investigated again.
