Former President Olusegun Obasanjo recently said he was worried about coup rumours. He warned that the rumour about handing over to the military should not become a reality as the international community, especially the African Union, AU, would not accommodate or recognise any government that emerged without the constitution. Reacting to Obasanjo statement, the Governor of Ekiti state, Ayo Fayose openly criticised the comments of the former President.
He said that the former head of state has made a pastime to amplify rumours. He said Nigerians need to ask Obasanjo where he heard the rumour. Idowu Adelusi, the chief press secretary to Fayose , said that Nigerians should find out where he heard the rumour of coup. He said as a former head of state and a retired general, whatever he says, will carry weight and some people will believe it. He said coup making and plotting are no longer the vogue in the world. Anybody thinking along that line will be swimming against the tide and the consequences are there.
He further said that the former President should not at this age amplify rumours which can cause confusion in the polity. He said he expects Obasanjo to defend democracy as he is a beneficiary of the current democratic dispensation. He added that Obasanjo left the PDP by publicly tearing the party’s membership card and since he left there has been peace in the party. According to him, Obasanjo should wait till after the election when the PDP will trounce his candidate and see how Nigerians will celebrate the victory. He urged Obasanjo to do away with the primitive idea of running down anybody not anointed by him.
"They called Goodluck Jonathan, who gave you YouWIN and SURE-P, and PRESSID Scholarships clueless. So what do we call APC that gives you wheelbarrow? They said GEJ was tribalistic yet his NSA, CDS, IGP, CNS, CGP and minister of defense were from the North. So what do we say of President Muhammadu Buhari whose DG DSS is from his own hometown and whose Minister of Defense, Chief of Army Staff, Chief of Air Staff, NSA, IGP, CGP, CGI, CGP are all from his Northern Region? You see, no matter how far falsehood has travelled, it must eventually be overtaken by truth!"
