Bola Tinubu, national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has branded former president Olusegun Obasanjo “expired”.
Tinubu also asked Obasanjo to keep quiet and retire to his farm in Ota, Ogun State.
The APC leader said this at the party’s presidential rally which held in Maiduguri, the Borno State capital,on Monday.
Speaking to a crowd of supporters at the Ramat Square, the location of the rally, Tinubu described Obasanjo as an “expired leader” that is not to be trusted.
He was reacting to the former president’s latest lengthy written criticism against the Buhari-led administration.
Among his other scathing statements, Obasanjo had alleged plans by Buhari to rig the 2019 elections.
Tinubu said, “You can hear the other expired leaders like Obasanjo, ranting and lying. Don’t believe him, don’t trust him. He is expired.
“With the sign of senility experienced by our dear brother, Uncle Obasanjo, I think Ota should be enough a retirement place to keep quiet.”
