Ex-Buhari’s aide attacks presidency


Former Chairman of the Special Presidential Panel for the Recovery of Public Property (SPIP), Okoi Obono-Obla, has taken a thinly veiled dig at the presidency.

Obla, who is dogged by certificate forgery and fraud allegations, prior to his sacked by the presidency, was engaged in open face-off with Vice President Prof Yemi Osinbajo.

The former Buhari’s aide in his first public statement after his ouster, hit back at his unnamed persecutors via a Facebook post last night.

He wrote: “Why are these people after me? They took their job away, yet they are not done. They smeared me in the media, they framed me. They lied against me. They declared me wanted. What offence have I committed?

“Even those, who have stolen billions or contributed to the wrecking of the national economy are not treated with such indignity. Those who have corruptly enriched themselves. They just want to humiliate me. They want to break me. They want to demonize me before Nigerians.

“I am a true patriot of Nigeria. I did my job with utmost dedication, dignity, integrity and commitment. God and history shall always vindicate the just. Nelson Mandela was persecuted, prosecuted, dehumanized and imprisoned for 27 years, but he became a world icon.”
