GOOD LUCK TO PRESIDENT GOODLUCK, THE OBASANJO LETTER.
Icheoku says this Baba Iyabo must have majored in artful deceit and rewriting of history. If not that Icheoku lived through the two times Obasanjo happened on the national stage as Nigeria's head of State and President, Icheoku would have queried if Obasanjo has an avatar called Obasanjo too who is now pontificating these thoughts. Anyway it is for President Jonathan to threat the letter as he deem fit but Icheoku maintains that Baba Iyabo, with his past antecedents, lacks the moral standing to so advise a sitting Nigerian president on the way forward. Just like Obasanjo recently said of Mandela that people should aspire to emulate his lifestyle when he personally did not, now he is prescribing medicines for the current president which himself never took while in office.
Hear him, Obasanjo is against Jonathan's second term when himself completed two terms and cavorted a third term which was denied him. Obasanjo advises Jonathan not to go hard against his opponents when the "do or die and never forgive his opponents politics" were just a recent history of Baba Iyabo. Obasanjo complained about releasing Mustapha calling him a MURDERER while he forgot that himself made Omisore the murderer of Bola Ige a senator? Obasanjo complained about obscene rulers opulence and wealth while he never explained to Nigerians how he catapulted from having only 20000Naira in his bank account before his first term in 1999 to now being a multi-billionaire or very close to it? Obasanjo complained that a water project was stopped in Port Harcourt Rivers State but forgot that he shut down Slok airlines, Hallmark bank, Savannah bank, Ibeto cement, halted work on Enugu airport as well as the second River Niger bridge purely due to his "pettiness and unpresidential actions?" Obasanjo complained that President Jonathan should not consider his critics as enemies when Nigerians know how far Obasanjo went to stifle his perceived critics including his own vice president Atiku Abubakar. Needless to mention that Harry Marshall as well as many others were never fortunate to live to tell their stories.
Finally he talked about Boko Haram and insecurity in the land and how it is not being effectively dealt with or tackled with sledge hammer BUT forgot that Odi and Zaki Ibiam massacres was supervised by him. Concluding, Icheoku does not care a hoot if the house of card that is PDP goes into a free fall BUT suffice it to say that OLUSEGUN OBASANJO is not the person to write as he has written. He lacks every moral authority to stand in judgment over any Nigerian president including President Jonathan for crying out loud.
FYI: please the epistle is very long, admitted it has a lot of poor grammar, BUT it is good to patiently read through and be the judge of its merit or lack thereof. It is vintage Baba Iyabo trying to reinvent himself by throwing President Jonathan under the bus. Icheoku says the time is now for the president to stand firm and once and for all consign these old Nigeria nemesis permanently where he belongs alongside his other coup plotters compatriots Babangida, Abubakar and Buhari. Icheoku says all these past military heads of state should, ought and must be contained and confined outside Nigerian democratic onward march as they are not helping matters at all. But surprisingly these three men are still being held in lofty heights by some Nigerians as statesmen when they are the real problem of Nigeria.
