Obasanjo has reason to fear Buhari ’s Government with what is happening to Saraki, says Yakasai


The National Chairman of the Northern Elders Council Tanko Yakasai, said alllegations raised by Olusegun Obasanjo, a former President against the Federal Government would have been easily dismissed, but for the ongoing “ Police harassment ” of Senate President Bukola Saraki.

“You see, if what happened to Bukola (Saraki ) did not happen, I would not have believed Obasanjo.

“But I and many Nigerians recall how the Senate President, the number three citizen, some weeks ago, raised the alarm that the Police were about to hatch a plot to implicate him in robbery and murder cases.

It was published nationwide and many people did not believe his statements .

“ But now , we have seen the plot playing out. But every Nigerian knows that a man of Saraki cannot be involved in armed robbery. If he wanted to steal money , he could steal in the Senate and the money in the legislature he is heading is larger than the money in all the banks in Offa put together.

“And so , because of this , I will not dismiss the fears expressed by former President Obasanjo on the threats by the Federal Government to implicate him.”
