National leader of the ruling All Progressives Congress, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, has lashed out at former President Olusegun Obasanjo and a former military ruler, Gen. Ibrahim Babangida (retd.), saying they should join what he called the retirees’ club and be collecting pensions.
Tinubu said this while addressing State House correspondents shortly after he and a former interim chairman of the party, Chief Bisi Akande, met President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
Saying he does not address “shadows,” the former Lagos State governor urged Obasanjo and Babangida to allow the present crop of leaders to move the country forward following their damning letters to Buhari last month, Punch writes.
“I don’t address those shadows. We should let our former Presidents join retirees’ club and take pensions but they can participate in our politics if they are interested.
“It is a free world but this freedom is not served a la carte. They should allow us to move our country forward. It is a challenge to every Nigerian,” he said.
