President Buhari who is attending the 30th general summit of the African Union holding in Addis Ababa, alongside former president Olusegun Obasanjo and some Presidents, was captured on camera laughing with Obasanjo who wrote an explosive open letter to him.

Recall that the Nigerian Former President on Tuesday, told President Muhammadu Buhari, to forget seeking re-election in 2019.
Rather, Obasanjo said the President should consider a deserved rest at his age.
Obasanjo, who called for coalition for Nigeria movement of well-meaning Nigerians to salvage and redeem the country which, he said, he was ready to be part of, also noted national interest was being sacrificed on the altar of nepotism by the President Buhari’s administration.
This was contained in an 18-page letter entitled: “The Way Out: A Clarion Call for Coalition for Nigeria Movement”, written by the former president and made available to newsmen, in Abeokuta, Ogun State, capital.
Obasanjo, in a strongly-worded statement, subtly promoted what may become a political party, as Coalition for Nigeria, CN.
“I, therefore, will gladly join such a Movement when one is established as Coalition for Nigeria, CN, taking Nigeria to the height God has created it to be. From now on, the Nigeria eagle must continue to soar and fly high”, he said.
“CN, as a Movement, will be new, green, transparent and must remain clean and always active, selflessly so.”
Recall also that Iyabo Obasanjo, first child of former President Olusegun Obasanjo, berated supporters of the Buhari administration for recycling a letter she wrote in 2013 in defence of the Jonathan government.
Senator Obasanjo, now a university professor based in Virginia, United States, said this in a statement issued on Saturday.
Iyabo backed her father’s statement on Buhari and accused the government of failing to adequately address the fundamental issues the ex-leader raised.
She lamented the cheap tactic of the Buhari apologists in drawing unconnected issues to run away from the “advice and admonishment of one of the most brilliant leaders to ever emerge in modern Africa.”
