Senator Ben Murray-Bruce and a former presidential spokesperson, Reno Omokri, have faulted the APC national leader, Bola Tinubu, for calling former president, Olusegun Obasanjo, an expired milk who should be dumped in the dustbin.
Tinubu had at a rally in Lagos state on Saturday, February 9, described Olusegun Obasanjo as the expired milk who presided over the flawed electoral process that brought late president, Yar’Adua into power.
However, Senator Ben Murray-Bruce and a spokesperson to Goodluck Jonathan, Reno Omokri, have condemned Bola Tinubu’s statement.
Bruce said Obasanjo was an icon who had a list of achievements including ending the Nigerian civil war and being the first military head of state to voluntarily hand over to an elected President in Africa.
He said Obasanjo helped stabilise the democracy Nigerians were enjoying now. “President Olusegun Obasanjo is an icon. The commander that ended the Nigerian Civil War. The first military head of state to voluntarily hand over to an elected President in Africa. The man that helped stabilise the democracy we are now enjoying. It is rather unfortunate that the beneficiaries now insult him!” The senator said.
