It has been gathered that Ex-president Olusegun Obasanjo once stated that he preferred to be jailed by President Buhari than to let Former President, Goodluck Jonathan continue as President of Nigeria.
In his book, ‘My Watch’, Page 96, Obasanjo wrote;
“…the Buhari I know relieves my hope for a true transformation Nigeria requires at this moment. Even, I prefer him to jail me than Jonathan to return to destroy this nation…”
This development seems ironic as President Buhari and Obasanjo have been locked in a war of words recently with President Buhari questioning Obasanjo on how he managed $16 billion allocated for power projects in the country during his regime.
Obasanjo fired back asking the president to read his book for the answer, adding that if he couldn’t read it, he could ask his aides to read it for him.
Obasanjo also added that he was not afraid of a probe.
