Chairman of the Presidential Advisory Committee Against Corruption (PACAC), Itse Sagay, has reacted to the explosive letter former President Olusegun Obasanjo sent to President Muhammadu Buhari asking him not to seek a second term in office.

In an interview with The Nation, Sagay said it is very hypocritical of Obasanjo who wanted to force his way into a third term while he was in office, is asking President Buhari not to seek re-election.

In his letter that was released to the public yesterday, Obasanjo said President Buhari should honorably resign from office and go home and rest. Obasanjo scored the Buhari-led government low in performance in many sectors, stressing that nepotism, gross dereliction of duty, poverty and insecurity have become the order of the day in this government.

Reacting, Sagay said Obasanjo’s letter is insulting.

I saw Obasanjo’s comments and I could not believe my eyes, that a man who tried to get a third term is discouraging someone else from getting a second term. It doesn’t make sense. I think Obasanjo should try and respect other people. He has achieved a lot. He is a great man and I respect him. But he should learn to respect other people and think of them as being, at least, as good as himself. I think it is insulting for a man who wanted third term to tell somebody else not to want second term. It is most inappropriate, and for a former head of state to say so is most improper.”
