As comments and reactions are still trailing the publication of an autobiography of former Nigeria President, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo titled, “My Watch” from well meaning Nigerians, a Lagos-based human rights activist and Convener, Save Lagos Group (SLG), Comrade Adeniyi Alimi Sulaiman has said that former President was playing God over 2015 general elections, particularly the Presidential election where President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan and former Military Head of State, General Muhammadu Buhari (rtd) were principal contenders for the exalted position in the land in his book.
The rights activist also declared that Chief Obasanjo has been making frantic efforts to ensure that the country was ungovernable for Jonathan at the detriment of the poor masses of the land, urging Obasanjo to behave like statesman while addressing the issue of national importance, not to be apportioning blame on fellow human beings.
Comrade Sulaiman who doubles as Executive Chairman, Centre for Human Rights and Social Justice (CHRSJ), through a signed statement, which a copy was made available to newsmen in Lagos Monday, stressed that
“My watch” which has been the subject of litigation before and after its publication, was part of efforts by Obasanjo to discredit the present administration in the land and to tell the whole word that Jonathan’s government has lost touch with the good people of the country.
According to him, “You see that Chief Olusegun Obasanjo has developed the habit of abusing fellow political leaders in the land for self interest, especially those who are not doing his bidding.”
