‘Why I Am Attacking Obasanjo’- Fayose Finally Says

The Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, has given reasons he has been ”attacking” former President, Olusegun Obasanjo.
Disclosing his reason, the Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Governors forum stressed that the former President does not represent what “he claims.”
The governor maintained that Obasanjo lacks the moral standing to dish out advice on corruption because he, Obsanjo, is corrupt.
He also described the Ibogun-born politician as the father of “do or die politics,” adding that he has no right to admonish leaders against such practice.
Speaking with The Sun,he said “Unfortunately, Obasanjo does not appreciate the need for him to keep quiet. He does not have moral grounds to be saying all these things and that is why I come out every time to tell him that he does not represent what he claims to be.
“I want to recall in 2003 and 2006, Obasanjo who removed me from office in Ekiti at all cost for reasons best known to him is the same Obasanjo who removed so many governors from office. It is the same Obasanjo who trampled on Nigeria’s constitution severally, because of his third term agenda.
“Why should the same man now come out and say leaders should not engage in do- or -die politics? Where is the moral standing of Obasanjo? You know, sometimes when people interview him and he does his grandstanding, I laugh when I watch him on the television.
“Look at somebody talking about corruption, when Obasanjo just returned from the prison, they should go and bring his picture and his asset, what was his worth when he was in prison and what happened after eight years when he looted the treasury.
“All those assets he now has in Obasanjo library and university and all that, are they products of his salary? So when they talk in this country we want to be able to listen and evaluate what they are talking about.
“Obasanjo should be behind the bars. The money that he used to bribe members of the National Assembly during his botched third term agenda, where did the money come from? Was it from his holier than thou presidency, or what?
“The Yar’Adua we are talking about today who brought him? OBJ. Jonathan himself who brought him? OBJ. So, he is just running his mouth. We would continue to have problems if we listen to Obasanjo.”
This is coming at a time when the former Military Head of State admitted that his generation failed Nigeria.
