Festus Keyamo (SAN) has reacted to the press statement issued by former President Olusegun Obasanjo which urged President Muhammadu Buhari not to contest the 2019 presidential election.
In the statement, Obasanjo proposed a Coalition for Nigeria that would create a third force to the ruling All Progressives Congress and the opposition Peoples Democratic Party.
But Keyamo said the former President’s real aim is to launch a new political party since he could no longer weild influence inthe APC and PDP both of which he supported in the past.
The lawyer described Obasanko as a “control freak on an endless search for a puppet-like President”
He tweeted: “OBJ is simply a control freak on an endless search 4 a puppet-like President since d collapse of his 3rd-term agenda. His letter is a clever means to launch a political party over which he would preside since d APC & PDP have grown beyond his control. He just can’t quit politics”
