How Buhari insulted Nigerians With his reply to Obasojo's letter--Dr Junaid Muhammed

A Second Republic lawmaker, Dr Junaid
Muhammed, has noted that the response
provided by the President Muhammadu
Buhari-led Federal Government to former
President Olusegun Obasanjo’s statement
did not account for corruption in the
current administration.
Muhammed described the response as
“uncharitable and an insult to the
intelligence of Nigerians.”
Fielding questions from Punch, the former
lawmaker said Buhari had failed to address
the main issues especially that of
nepotism, raised by the former president.
He said, “The so- called response is a
collective insult to the intelligence of
Nigerians. A man like Obasanjo cannot be
said by the Federal Government to be too
busy to notice what is being done by the
government.
“This can never be a defence for the
irresponsibility and corruption in the
Federal Government.
“Also, Obasanjo spoke about specific
issues. One of them was the issue of
nepotism , which was earlier observed by
me in at least 10 appointments by the
Federal Government; that issue was not
addressed, there has been no answer from
the government.
“I can name several appointments in the
government’s circle which were not based
on merit but on some other considerations .
You do not confront facts by lying about
them.”
