Festus Keyamo (SAN), Director, Strategic Communications of President Muhammadu Buhari’s 2019 campaign, has slammed former President Olusegun Obasanjo over allegations that the President was perfecting plans to kill him.
Obasanjo on Friday claimed that Buhari’s government was planning to frame him and consequently kill him by plotting his arrest on false charges.
According to him, part of the plan was for Buhari to seize his International passport and clamp him into detention indefinitely.
However, responding to the allegations, Keyamo said Obasanjo was desperate for attention away from criticism of his failure to declare June 12 Democracy Day throughout his eight years in power.
He described Obasanjo’s statement as a ‘Childish prank’ to halt credits given to Buhari over June 12 democracy day.
“Obasanjo’s outcry is for two reasons: 1. To attract unearned sympathy to himself in order to deflect the damage the immortalisation of June 12 has done to his image as the main antagonist of Abiola’s mandate.
“2. To dampen the accolades going the way of PMB over the issue. It’s childish prank,” Keyamo tweeted.
