Obasanjo must go back to prison when I become President — Fayose

Fayose's insults on Obasanjo is a sacrilege in Yoruba land -Bode George

Former governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose has said that the former president Olusegun Obasanjo must go back to prison for all his alleged grievous infractions committed against Nigeria if he becomes president.

Fayose said this on Tuesday, August 11 while featuring on “Plus Politics”, a programme on PlusTV Africa, monitored by a Daily Times correspondent in Ado Ekiti.

He also said he will ensure Obasanjo accounts for all the alleged financial impropriety and other manifestations of corrupt practices perpetrated during his eight-year tenure as Nigeria’s president and face the full wrath of the law.

Daily Times reports that Fayose was reacting to the comments on Senator Buruji Kashamu’s death.

But, Fayose, in his condolence message, described the ex-president’s statement as regrettable, saying, “Nigerians are watching for your end too.”

Speaking on Plus TV Africa, he said: “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 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’Adua 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.
