    The All Progressives Congress (APC) has rebuked former President Olusegun Obasanjo for his recent criticism of the current administration’s reforms, particularly those spearheaded by Bola Tinubu. Obasanjo’s remarks, which targeted Tinubu’s handling of subsidy removal from petroleum products and the floating of the naira, were met with staunch opposition from the APC.

    Bala Ibrahim, the APC National Director, denounced Obasanjo’s comments, accusing him of being a serial critic and suggesting that he was showing signs of senility. Ibrahim lamented that Obasanjo’s critiques seemed to have intensified since his failed attempt to secure a third term in office, portraying him as a self-appointed guardian of Nigeria’s political conscience.

    Ibrahim argued that Obasanjo’s criticism lacked consistency and objectivity, asserting that he often portrayed himself as the sole custodian of Nigeria’s best interests, while disparaging every subsequent administration. He emphasized that no leader held a monopoly on wisdom or leadership style, and thus, Obasanjo’s persistent condemnation of other leaders was detrimental to statesmanship.

    Furthermore, Ibrahim pointed out that Obasanjo’s tenure as president was not devoid of criticism, citing his role in the fragmentation of the Nigerian economy. He questioned Obasanjo’s credibility in evaluating Tinubu’s reforms, highlighting the former president’s own shortcomings during his leadership.

    While Ibrahim clarified that he was not Tinubu’s spokesperson, he stressed that Obasanjo’s criticism was unjustified and unwarranted. He concluded by reiterating the APC’s position that Obasanjo’s remarks were indicative of a broader pattern of denigration against leaders who followed his tenure.
