“Bola Tinubu’s statement about Muhammadu Buhari in 2003 (2007) is fairly prophetic, ‘Muhammadu Buhari is an agent of destabilisation, ethnic bigot and religious fanatic who, if given the chance, would ensure the disintegration of the country. His ethnocentrism would jeopardise Nigeria’s national unity.’”

These were the words, with which former President Olusegun Obasanjo, warned Nigerians about the possible disintegration of the country if President Muhammadu Buhari, is allowed to run it for another four years.

Tinubu as the arrowhead the party, was quoted as making the statement in 2007, while campaigning for the then candidate of the Action Congress (ACN), Atiku Abubakar, who incidentally is now on the opposite side to Buhari, who has handed his entire campaign to the former Governor of Lagos State.

Buhari had run his presidential campaigns in 2003 and 2007 on the platform of the All Nigeria Peoples Party (ANPP), and Congress of Progressive Change (CPC), before eventually winning through the APC, in 2015.

In a statement on Sunday, Obasanjo made reference to Tinubu’s scathing attack on Buhari.

The former President also made reference to a former Second Republic federal lawmaker, Dr. Junaid Mohammed.

He added: “Junaid Mohammed was eloquent on the issue of nepotism. But if as we were told that Buhari is nepotic because he does not trust others, why should others trust him to continue to put their fate and lives in his hand?

“Trust begets trust. They cannot be trusted for ‘sensitive’ appointment but they can be sent out to campaign for his re-election. Who is fooling who?”
