Abdullahi Adamu: Obasanjo once bribed lawmakers with N50M - Senator

Obasanjo bribed lawmakers with N50M for 3rd term - Senator

The former governor of Nasarawa state has alleged that ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo bribed lawmakers with N50million each to back his third term.

An APC Senator representing Nasarawa, Abdullahi Adamu has alleged that ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo bribed lawmakers with N50million each to back his third term agenda.

Adamu, a former governor of Nasarawa state, made the allegation while reacting to the letter the ex-President wrote to President Muhammadu Buhari.

Adamu said: “He (Obasanjo) knows, as well as I and other leading members of the PDP, that he badly wanted it and initiated the process of constitutional amendment. He bribed each member of the national assembly who signed to support the amendment, with the whopping sum of N50million.

“The fresh mint money was taken in its original boxes presumably from the vaults of the Central Bank of Nigeria and distributed among the legislators.

“The money was not his, and it was not appropriated by the national assembly, as required by law.

Obasanjo should be in court if Buhari wasn't selective - Adamu


The All Progressives Congress (APC) senator representing Nasarawa west, has also said President Buhari’s anti-graft war is selective, hence, it should have consumed ex-President Obasanjo.

Chief Obasanjo said President Buhari is selective in his anti-corruption war. I agree with him because if the president were not selective, Chief Obasanjo himself would be in the dock today on trial on charges of corruption arising from the corrupt practices in the pursuit of his third term gambit in the national assembly in 2006.

"I therefore, agree that in failing to make former President Obasanjo account for the money, President Buhari is waging his anti-corruption war selectively.

“Nor should we forget that President Buhari has also not bothered to interrogate Obasanjo’s role in the Halliburton scandal for which some Americans are cooling their heels in jail. Perhaps President Buhari might wish to look in the Siemens affairs in which the Obasanjo administration was indicted,” Adamu said.

Obasanjo attacks Buhari, asks him to step down in 2019


Ex-President, Olusegun Obasanjo, has savagely attacked President Muhammadu Buhari's performance and asked the incumbent to not seek reelection in 2019 for the good of the country.

The former president made his feelings about Buhari's administration known in a 13-page statement released on Tuesday, January, 23, 2018.

In the statement titled, "The Way Out: A Clarion Call for Coalition for Nigeria Movement", Obasanjo pointed out major failings of the Buhari administration, particularly in the area of economic prosperity.

He said the president has performed below the expectations of Nigerians and asked him to take a backseat in 2019 and help the nation from the sidelines while someone else takes over.
