The Buhari Media Organization (BMO) has guaranteed former President Olusegun
Obasanjo's explanation that he will keep on condemning President Muhammadu Buhari on the off chance that he decides not to change is an affirmation that his pre-race analysis was fuelled by sense of ego.
The pro-Buhari group said this in reply to Obasanjo who said on Tuesday in Abeokuta that he would continue to criticise the President until “he begins to do the right things.”
The BMO in a statement signed by its Chairman, Niyi Akinsiju, and Secretary, Cassidy Madueke, on Wednesday said it was worrisome that Obasanjo had always insinuated that all the past heads of state and Presidents he had criticised did not perform creditably in office.
“It is amusing that the former President gave the impression that his criticism of President Buhari which began in January 2018 is borne out of a need for him to do the right thing.
“ Does it then mean that the President had been performing to Obasanjo’s expectations until then? If not, at what point did he realise that President Buhari had not been doing well; or did Obasanjo notice that only in January last year when he went public with the first of his open letters?
“Obasanjo’s comments at the public lecture in commemoration of his 82nd birthday can also be interpreted to mean that no President aside from former President Obasanjo did the right things in office.
“This shows that his criticism of President Buhari and former occupants of that position is largely ego-driven and is certainly not altruistic.”
The pro-Buhari group added that in terms of performance, Obasanjo had a lot of baggage in office, adding that the former President was not known to be tolerant of criticism.
