Obj recants, says no single person brought Buhari to power



BOMBSHELL: Obj calls Awujale, ruler of Ijebuland, a serial liar
Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has denied reports that he and three others brought President Muhammad Buhari to power.
The former president, who spoke in Jalingo, Taraba State, during a courtesy visit to the state governor, Darius Ishaku, said media reports to that effect were baseless and meant to smear him.
According to him, Nigerians voted overwhelmingly for President Buhari.
“ No single individual or group can claim that glory,” he said.
Obasanjo, who harped on the economic potentials of the Taraba State, said the Mambila Plateau in the state had the potential of becoming the hub of tea production in Africa.
He also said using his experience and connections, he was determined to promote the tea production potential of the state.
“The Taraba tea factory is a symbol of national greatness. The tea potential of this state can attract global demand and earn the nation foreign exchange,” he said.
Obasanjo noted that beside tea, the state also had potentials in cattle rearing, poultry, power generation, among others.
