Tinubu reacts to OBJ’s letter, says ex-president playing politics


The national leader of the All Progressives Congress APC, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu has reacted to the controversial letter written by former President Olusegun Obasanjo to President Muhamadu Buhari.

Tinubu says Obasanjo is playing politics, if not there are some other ways and means he could have sent the letter to President Buhari.


Asiwaju who visited Governor Rochas Okorocha at the Government House Owerri also believes that the former President should have discussed the issues raised privately with the President  rather than making it a public lecture.

“Obasanjo wrote it about the government. It is a very good awareness on his part and they are both from the same background.


“I believe that is the doctrine  of military officers (retired) because he has unrestricted access to the president, either through the Council of State or by any other means that he need to see the current president privately and he was his junior in the army. 

“So I think Obasanjo was playing politics with his public letter. That’s all I see. He could have used other means. He met him in the AU too. He has a way of discussing privately but the letter is being responded to by the government”, Tinubu was quoted as saying by The Nation.
