Former Minister of Education and All Nigeria Peoples Party presidential candidate, Mallam Ibrahim Shekarau, is the latest top politician to condemn President Muhammadu Buhari for allegedly bringing back politicians who destroyed Nigeria for the 16 years of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) rule.

Shekarau, who vented his disappointment over Buhari hobnobbing with men he feels brought Nigeria to this present state, particularly mentioned the likes of former President Olusegun Obasanjo, who, according to him, ruled the country for eight of PDP’s 16 years of administering Nigeria.

“Buhari has said that he has come to right the wrongs of 16-year mess by the PDP.  So, I said, ‘Mr. President you are welcome, but reminded that 10 of those 16 years belong to ex-President Obasanjo.

He had his eight years and by indirect remote control, two years of late was Obasanjo’s. And Obasanjo was the one who produced Yar’Adua and Jonathan. Until three years ago when they fell out (Obasanjo and Jonathan), Obasanjo was in charge.

Obasanjo today belongs to those who are chief advisers to President Muhammadu Buhari. Governor of Kaduna State, was one of the major hit men of Obasanjo, my former governor, , was one of the boys of Obasanjo as well as former, Goje and all the rest of them.

They were part of those 16 years which President Buhari was saying that PDP messed up Nigeria, and today because they are APC, they are saints. They are now surrounding the President as his chief advisers. The Amaechis are all part of the PDP.

All the election crisis that President Buhari was accusing PDP of perpetrating were a creation of these people, the same who are with him now.

So what sense does it make that I said you are thief for 16 years, I have come to correct the wrongs that you did and now I am calling you the chief adviser in order to right the wrongs that you committed.

Does it make sense? We are waiting to see how they will come out of this.”
