“In the past, the impression president Obasanjo gave some of us when he was in power has been that as a brave man he was, he is not  afraid of anything especially having been a retired general in the Army that have seen a lot, given that understanding, one should expect him  not  to raise  any alarm that he is now being put under security watch list”

This were the views of Ekiti state governor over the alarm raised by former Nigeria president Olusegun Obasanjo over what the latter described as security watch list, saying his life now under threat.
In a statement by his chief press secretary, Mr Idowu Adelusi, a copy of which was obtained by urban express news online said; Fayose argued that Obasanjo cannot make his predicament a Yoruba issues.
. “To me, former President Obasanjo should submit himself for probe and trial. He gave us the impression that he is a brave man who is not afraid of anything. He is a retired general in the army who has seen a lot and should not be raising alarms now. Obasanjo said Buhari was the best for Nigeria while promoting him for the 2015 general elections,” he stated.
Fayose added: “In his book ‘Under My Watch’, Obasanjo said he prefers to be jailed by Buhari rather than former President Goodluck Jonathan being reelected into office. Now prison is beckoning on him and he wants to dodge.
He set up the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) and among others. He even used those bodies to hound and lock up many people including state governors. Why is he now afraid of being probed.
“Let him tell Nigerians how he made his money. People can recollect the level he was before he became president and how he left office. If Buhari is now telling the whole world that Obasanjo stole money, it is incumbent on Obasanjo to Prove his innocence”
Meanwhile, former deputy national chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party Chief Olabode George has admonished the duo using military style to settle their scuffle  
In a statement, yesterday, George said his appeal to the two is in the interest of the country, being a former junior officer to the duo. He reminded the two former Generals to recall the military ethics, which says: “We don’t wash our dirty linens in the open.”

“Chief Obasanjo is a man of towering distinction and excellence, who ruled Nigeria both as a military Head of State and as a civilian president. He is an international figure who is motivated by patriotism.

“President Buhari is equally a patriot, a gentleman and officer whose totality of vision is about the growth and welfare of our commonwealth. As a military man, I know these senior officers very well. I have worked at close quarters with the two of them. I have no doubt about their selfless commitment to our nation.

“I am appealing to the two personages as a junior officer to sheathe their swords and resolve their differences behind the curtain. That is the military style. We don’t wash our dirty linens in the open.”
