Former Military and civilian President Olusegun Obasanjo on Wednesday said he has every right to criticise his fellow military and civilian present president Buhari who will continue to address him as ‘sir’ until he, Obasanjo, dies.
According to Obasanjo, he was Buhari’s former boss in the military and so remains his boss for life. When he was Head of State, Obasanjo had, in March 1976, appointed Buhari as the Federal Commissioner (position now called minister) for Petroleum and Natural Resources,
Obasanjo said this when he spoke at the 2018 Ibogun Day Celebration in Ogun, Southwest Nigeria.
“I know Buhari and he, too, knows me. Till the day I die, Buhari will continue to address me as ‘Sir.’”
