Presidential aide, Garba Shehu has explained why he described former President Olusegun Obasanjo as a ‘morally dirty man’ over his letter addressed to Nigerian youths.
In a recent interview with media personality, Kikelomo Atanda-Owo, Garba Shehu the Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity to President Buhari was asked why he described former President Olusegun Obasanjo as a ‘morally dirty man for endorsing Peter Obi’.
In his response, Garba Shehu said, ‘he didn’t just endorse Peter Obi, if that’s all he did, then its perfectly OK, but for the fact that he also attacked the records of our administration for which reason we felt he needed a reply. Ordinarily we leave Obasanjo to say whatever he wants to say and it doesn’t affect the achievement of our administration. But the records have to be set and the facts have to be stated, this is why we responded to him’.
Garba Shehu also went on to explain why President Buhari is not on the campaign train with Asiwaju Bola Tinubu ahead of the 2023 elections. He said; ‘Bola Tinubu is the candidate, the party does not have two candidates in this election and the president has state duties in addition to other things he oversees within and outside the party which he can’t fail, the candidate is in touch with the president and give reports and updates from time to time’.
