The Pandora's Box of who is the sick man between former President Olusegun Obasanjo and incumbent President Muhammadu Buhari was opened Sunday night by Garba Shehu, Senior Assistant to President Buhari (Media and Publicity).
Responding, Buhari’s spokesperson, Garba Shehu said “Our first message to the former President is that he needs a good doctor for good treatment and to say to him, “Get well soon.” However, PDP faulted the response of the President, saying such was appalling.
However, Buhari responded via his spokesman Garba Shehu, saying Obasanjo needed the help of a "doctor" so he "could get well soon".
In a strange twist, Garba Shehu, the alternate Presidential spokesman, in a written response even suggests that President Obasanjo is sick, and he should “please get well soon”.
181203055810230 "This language of his 16-page letter, likening President Buhari to General Sani Abacha, a man he dreaded and the one who jailed him under military laws, is most unfitting from a former President of Nigeria," Buhari's spokesman Garba Shehu said.
Reacting in a statement, presidential spokesman, Garba Shehu said: “The sixteen-page letter the former President, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, wrote to President Muhammadu Buhari and released this afternoon is the last push by desperate politicians who can’t handle the President politically and have resorted to subterfuge.
In statement specifically signed by himself and made known by Garba Shehu, his aide, President Buhari described Keyamo as a lawyer who has used his profession to speak up for the masses at critical times.
“It is a notorious fact that in dealing with any leader that he failed to control, he resorted to these puerile attacks,” presidential spokesman Garba Shehu said in a statement.
This was contained in a statement by Garba Shehu, Senior Special Assistant to the President (Media and Publicity), issued on Sunday night.
As a matter of fact, Presidential Spokesman, Garba Shehu, made a quick dash to Channels TV in defense of Yusuf.
