Former Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Abubakar Tsav, has urged ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo, to stop playing principality of Nigerian politics and ask God for forgiveness.
He made the call in an open letter to the former president he made available to journalists yesterday.
Tsav, also a former National Commissioner of the Public Complaints Commission Abuja, slammed Obasanjo for his alleged interruptions in the Nigerian political scene adding that, “making pronouncements at every point and countering or reversing himself on national issues in a manner that belittles his status, as elder statesman”.
He wrote: “In Nigeria or African generally, septuagenarian or octogenarian ages are like a double edged sword. It could be a curse or a blessing to someone depending on how he utilizes this special favour from God Almighty in spending these rare years of grace.
“They can be treasures of wisdom in their communities or nations. But the worse experience is when such people bow to the strings of senility and the instinctual drive of incoherence.
“The latter category is the problem with Nigeria’s former President, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo (OBJ). And his case seems on the wayward side because innately, he brooks no opposition to his views and parades a fake aura of superior wisdom.
