Chairman of the Presidential Advisory Committee on Anti-Corruption, PACAC, Itse Sagay, has again lashed out at former President, Olusegun Obasanjo.
Sagay, who had earlier commented on Obasanjo’s statement on President Muhammadu Buhari, said the former leader had no moral right to run down the Buhari administration.
Sagay noted that the open statement was done in bad faith and insisted that the administration of Buhari has achieved more that what Obasanjo achieved in eight years.
“I want to make a clear statement that in my view, what the Buhari government has achieved in two and half years is far more than what Obasanjo achieved in eight years,” Sagay, a professor of Law, told Channels Television.
“He (Obasanjo) has no right to start writing public letters and running down other governments simply because he’s no longer the one in power.
“My immediate reaction is that it sounds very ill in the mouth of the person who sought three terms of presidency to demand that the person who has not even sought a second term to abort any idea of doing the second term.
“That advice is coming from the wrong source; he has no moral right to give that advice,” he added.
Obasanjo, in a lengthy and strongly-worded statement, said Buhari and his government have failed Nigerians.
He also promoted what may become a political party, Coalition for Nigeria, CN.
“I, therefore, will gladly join such a Movement when one is established as Coalition for Nigeria, CN, taking Nigeria to the height God has created it to be. From now on, the Nigeria eagle must continue to soar and fly high”, he said.
“CN, as a Movement, will be new, green, transparent and must remain clean and always active, selflessly so,” he added.
