The presidency has said there are things that Nigerians are demanding from President Muhammadu Buhari that they cannot demand from former President Olusegun Obasanjo.
TheNewsGuru.com (TNG) reports that Olusegun Obasanjo was president from 1999 – 2003.
Femi Adesina, Special Adviser to President Buhari specifically said Nigerians can pester former President Obasanjo like they are pestering the incumbent.
He said Obasanjo would have insulted and embarrassed them serious on live programme on television.
Adesina was reacting to the criticisms he received from a large section of Nigerians over his outing during a programme on 95.1 Nigeria Info FM Abuja.
“You know what? If it was former President Olusegun Obasanjo that had come under the ‘you must talk to us’ barrage like that, and on live television, he would have first cleared his throat noisily, adjusted himself in his seat, and then bellowed:
“And who are you, that I must talk to you? I say who the hell are you? Who is your father? Who is your father’s father, that you are commanding me to talk to you? Were you born when we fought a Civil War to keep this country together?
“Where was your father when I received the instrument of surrender from the Biafra Forces? Don’t come here and tell me nonsense. Talk to us, my foot!” he said,
