Former minister of State for Education, Prof Jerry Agada, yesterday, described the face-off between former President Olusegun Obasanjo and President Muhammadu Buhari, as a ‘shame and disgrace’ to Nigeria’s democracy.
Prof Agada who stated this in Makurdi, enjoined other well-meaning leaders in the country to quickly wade into the prevailing circumstances before the two leaders throw Nigeria into a collapsed country.
He said the allegation by former President Olusegun Obasanjo accusing President Buhari’s administration of plotting to slam false charges on him, to pave the way for his indefinite detention,was weighty and should be critically and holistically looked into by appropriate authorities.
Obasanjo had also said the government was planning to use fake documents and witnesses against him to perfect the plan, a development Agada said was unhealthy if anything like that happens.
Agada noted that the way the whole scenario is playing out between the two leaders is very shameful and a slap on democracy.
He, however, said Obasanjo’s claim has brought a shame to this country, alluding that it is not proper for a former President to raise such claims against a sitting President in a nation that is still nursing democracy.
