THE Federal Government has described the letter of ex-president Olusegun Obasanjo asking President Muhammadu Buhari not to seek a second term in office as a “distraction”.
The Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, who stood in for the government also hinted that Obasanjo was ignorant of Buhari’s achievements.
He stated this while briefing State House correspondents at the end of the Federal Executive Council.
The meeting was presided over by the president.
Mohammed said Obasanjo may not be aware of the damages the immediate past government under Goodluck Jonathan plunged the country into in the last couple of years.
According to the Minister, Nigeria wouldn’t have exited recession if not for the ingenuity of the current administration,
He said Buhari’s achievement in office speaks volumes, especially when viewed from economic, security and agricultural perspectives.
