President Muhammadu Buhari has indirectly reacted to Monday’s open letter written to him by former President Olusegun Obasanjo.
In the letter, Obasanjo accused Buhari of not doing enough to address the high level of insecurity in the country.
“To be explicit and without equivocation, Mr. President and General, I am deeply worried about four avoidable calamities,” Obasanjo wrote.
“Violent uprising beginning from one section of the country and spreading quickly to other areas and leading to dismemberment of the country.”
But TheCable is reporting that Buhari, while speaking with national executives of the Buhari Campaign Organisation (BCO) at Aso Rock on Tuesday, hit Obasanjo indirectly. Without specifically mentioning the former president’s name, Buhari said those criticising the “isolated cases” of insecurity in the country are not patriotic.
According to Buhari, every country in the world is facing one security challenge or the other, and banditry and kidnapping happen across the world.
