A governorship aspirant on the platform of the All Progressives Congress in Abia state, Ambassador Chidike Ukauwa has called for the immediate arrest of the former President Olusegun Obsanjo for rising frivolous alarm, alleging that President Muhammadu Buhari-led government has hatched plan to assassinate him.
DAILY POST reported that Former President Olusegun Obasanjo had last week, alleged that Buhari- administration wanted to frame him.
Ukauwa made the call in a statement issued to newsmen by his media office in Abuja, and was made available to DAILY POST on Sunday, in Umuahia, while reacting on Obasanjo’s claims on threat to his life by the Buhari-led federal government.
The APC chieftain, expressed displeasure over what he termed as ‘false allegation’ leveled against the federal government by the ex-president.
Ukauwa advised the former President to clear himself over the claim by the federal government that his then administration expended $16 billion on power sector, without no improvement on the sector.
He warned Obasanjo to desist from heating up the polity unnecessarily, and clear himself, if he has no skeleton in his cupboard.
The politician also threatened to sue the federal government if it fails to persecute the ex-president over his role in the misappropriation of $16 billion meant for the power sector.
The governorship hopeful, however urged Nigerians to disregard the vituperation of Obasanjo, who according to him, was being affected by long scale corruption which ran under his then PDP-led administrations.
Parts of the statement reads”, I have observing the unfolding scenario in the country, especially the allegation of attempted assassination leveled by former President Olusegun Aremu Obasanjo against the federal government.
“I condemn the former President false alarm on the threat to his life intended to heat up the polity unnecessarily. If Obasanjo feels he has no skeleton, he should come up and defend himself.
“Obasanjo had in recent time dared the Buhari-led government to probe over the power sector. I am calling on President Buhari, if truly he is sincerely in the fight corruption, should persecute the former President.
” And failure by federal government to commence legal action against Obasanjo, we would sue FG to court.
