What Buhari should do to Obasanjo’s latest letter – Shehu Sani

The open letter written to President Muhammadu Buhari by former president, Olusegun Obasanjo, has continued to draw reactions across the country.

Mr Obasanjo had on Monday, in his latest epistle to Mr Buhari urged the president to decisively tackle the recent rise in insecurity bedeviling the nation. This angered critics who queried the moral right to the letter writer.

The letter also angered herdsmen, believed to be arrowheads of criminal activities, who called for the arrest of the former Nigerian leader. In response to the call, a former minister has threatened fire and brimstone should the president heed the call.

Weighing in on the matter, a former federal lawmaker, Shehu Sani, has advised the incumbent Nigerian leader not to discard the contents of the letter written by Obasanjo.

The civil rights activist urged the president not to treat the letter based on who sent it.

“The President should not use Obj’s letter as a Toilet roll, just clip it near the dressing mirror,” Mr Sani said in a tweet on Tuesday.

“The messenger is not surely handsome but the message is a Bell and a compass. Obj and Baba knows each other more than anyone knows about them,” he added.

The lawmaker also said the attack on the former president is a reprisal of what his men did to the opposition while he was in power.

“If history matters to us,PMB was also Openly and Consistently critical of Obj when the later was President,to the extent that Buhari was called all sorts of names by Obj Boys.For those too young to know or have forgotten just google and read,” he said in another tweet.
