I’m not a fan of OBJ but one of my prayer points has always been that may Obasanjo never write me a letter.
Obasanjo may have done exact or more evil than whoever he’s writing to admonish but while OBJ always escapes repercussions, whoever he writes to admonish are not always lucky.
OBJ’s involvement in any issue signifies the imminent end of that issue.
First, he wrote to Shagari when the latter was soaked in the mismanagement of the economy a few months later the military smashed Shagari government in 1995.
He then wrote to Abacha and described him as a stone age dictator, the letter landed him in trouble, He was almost killed. But after his death sentence was converted into prison terms, he wrote another letter to Abacha titled NO CONDITION IS PERMANENT, Where he said, “I was ahead of state yesterday, today, I’m in jail. You’re the head of state today, tomorrow, your condition may be worse than mine…”.
Indeed, Abacha’s future was worse as he ended in the grave!!!
OBJ didn’t write himself while in power but instead wrote his deputy, Atiku Abubakar. Atiku has become a shadow of his pre-1999 self since then.
It wasn’t clear whether he wrote Yaradua, a terminally ill former Kastina governor he imposed on Nigeria….but he came out publicly and asked him to resign!!!
He also didn’t spare GEJ he wrote him in a letter titled BEFORE IT IS TOO LATE, But it was actually late before the letter was written. Jonathan, today, has become a sorrowful history.
His latest letter to Buhari is no joke,
Take it or not, Buhari needs absolute care else the letter becomes his political abattoir
*Beg Obasanjo for me whenever you see him, may he never write me a letter.*
