If I were the president, I will arrest Obasanjo – Oshiomole

Former Edo State governor, Adams Oshiomole, has said that if he was President Buhari, he would investigate and detain former president, Olusegun Obasanjo.

Weighing in on the public ‘beef’ between Obasanjo and the president, Oshiomole who is a top contender for the office of the National Chairman of the All Progressive congress, APC, said Obasanjo harassed him and got him arrested.

The ex-governor stressed that Obasanjo should be detained if he has committed any offences and that if he was president, he would arrest the former president.

Oshiomole made these statements at a pre-June 12 event he organized in honour of late Chief Gani Fawehinmi SAN and acclaimed winner if the June 12 1993 Presidential Election, Bashorun MKO Abiola.

“He should be arrested if he has committed any offence. He arrested many of us. So, if we are celebrating Chief Gani Fawehinmi, we have compelling reasons to do so. In all of these, we didn’t pay any money to Gani or Falana. They defended us pro bono,” he said.

Oshiomole further added that, “Gani is not here today, but his spirit is here. Falana is here and today, I am standing. Even the president who was in charge then, he is now complaining that they want to harass him. He was harassing me and he got me arrested.

“He thought he himself would not be arrested? If I were the president, I would arrest him. We are all Nigerians. I remember one day I told him, I said, ‘President Obasanjo, we made you president. You did not make me a Nigerian. You are our creation; I am not your creation. You must listen.’ But he thought he would be in power forever and he tried to take us on the way to Zimbabwe.

“He was a reluctant Head of State, became president for two terms and he wanted to do a third term because a cockroach licking palm oil would never lick enough.”

Recall that last week, Obasanjo alleged that Buhari’s administration is plotting to frame and detain him.
