National leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, and former governor of Lagos State, Bola Tinubu, yesterday said that former president Olusegun Obasanjo was playing politics with the concerns he raised about the state of the nation in his letter sent to presidnet Buhari last week. Tinubu said this when he spoke to newsmen after a meeting with Imo state governor, Rochas Okorocha.
“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”he said
On the launch of Obasanjo’s Coalition Movement, Tinubu said that it is too early for him to comment on the development.
”The appropriate time is not now for response on the Coalition Movement but we are in a democracy, we are in a country that is a signatory to the Charter of the United Nation which guarantees free movement, free association and free speech”he said
