The National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, Senator Bola Tinubu, has accused former president Olusegun Obasanjo of playing politics with the special statement he released on the performance of President Muhammadu Buhari.

He said if Obasanjo had meant well, he would have met with Buhari to talk about the issues he raised in the letter.

Speaking in an interview with journalists when he visited Governor Rochas Okorocha at the Government House Owerri, Tinubu said:

“They both had the same background. So, I believe that would have been the conversation of retired military heads of State.

They have unfettered access to each other, either through the Council of State or via any other means. He could see the President privately.

He (Obasanjo) was also his (Buhari) senior in the army. I think Obasanjo was playing politics with the public letter. That is all I see.

They also met at the African Union meeting. He has a way of discussing with the President any time he wants.”
