The Oba of Lagos, Rilwan Akiolu 1, has described former head of state, Olusegun Obasanjo as a devil and corrupt politician who used people’s money to build the presidential library at Ogun state, Lagos Daily News reports.
Oba Akiolu made this known during President Jonathan’s visit to his palace during the Peoples Democratic Party 2015 campaign flag off in Lagos.
Rilwan said “Honestly, let us be frank with ourselves, I can never, never, over my dead body go near former President Obasanjo. I know him. If there is corruption, it is the responsibility of all of us. Where is the report of Halliburton? What is the complicity in the killing of Chief Bola Ige? What did Adenuga do that EFCC were running after him? Money was taken and he, Obasanjo used people’s money to build what he built in Abeokuta. Obasanjo should come and account for these monies for us”
“It is Bola Tinubu who saved the Yoruba race and Lagos from the devil Obasanjo”.
Akiolu went further, “There was one day on television when he (Obasanjo) was saying corruption, corruption and I was happy with the reply you gave Mr. President. You said corruption and insecurity, those who are saying corruption are the fathers of corruption. Well everything is in the hands of God. Nigeria will not break”.
