Ayodele Fayose, a former Ekiti State governor, has said he would send former president, Olusegun Obasanjo, back to prison if he was president.
Fayose made the vow while appearing on ‘Plus Politics’, a programme on PlusTV Africa, monitored by The Nation on Tuesday.
“Let me tell to you, Obasanjo has made hate speech and should be brought to book by this government. I pray one day I will become president of this country by God’s grace. Obasanjo will go back to prison. I’m telling you the truth because there are so many things Obasanjo must be questioned about.
“Obasanjo is not a saint when he came out of prison his farm at Ota was in shambles. But, today, it is back to life. Where did the money for resuscitating the once ailing farm come from? It was from the government.
“For the library, all governors at that time contributed 10 million naira each to support Obasanjo by force. The third term is still fresh in our memory.
“So, baba should stop telling us he is a saint. Shagari was not good enough. He imposed him on Nigerians. He brought Yar’ dua and Jonathan. Nobody is good to Obasanjo except himself.
“Whatever you say about Kashamu, he has paid his own dues, spent his time. No court convicted him and he left and departed the world. Everybody will have an end. Let wait and see how Obasanjo will end,” he added.
Fayose had attacked Obasanjo over his comment on the death of Buruji Kashamu, a popular Ogun politician. The former president had said in a condolence letter that despite Kashamu’s tactics to evade justice on his alleged criminal activities, he could not avoid death.
