President Muhammadu Buhari’s Personal Assistant on Social Media, Lauretta Onochie, has rubbished the reason given for the meeting between the Senate President, Bukola Saraki and former President Olusegun Obasanjo. Recall that Saraki and Obasanjo had met yesterday behind closed-doors.
Addressing newsmen after the meeting, Saraki said the purpose of the meeting was to make up for his absence during the formal inauguration of the Presidential library held last year. However, Onochie rubbished Saraki’s reason, describing it as fake news. In a statement she posted on her Facebook page, the Presidential aide insisted that the meeting was centered around President Muhammadu Buhari and the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Adams Oshiomhole.
The statement entitled: “Saraki’s Visit to Obasanjo Was to Congratulate him on the Opening of the Library, Not Political – Fake News” reads, “Library that was opened since last year? 17 months ago! “This guy keeps treating Nigerians as babies. So this must be the conversation that took place between Saraki and OBJ. Enjoy!
Saraki: Sorry Your Excellency, I missed the opening of the library 17 months ago.
“OBJ: Nothing to be sorry about, the library is still open. Let’s look in.
“Saraki: Yes Baba. This is impressive. It smells of the people’s money.
“OBJ: I will pretend I didn’t hear that. This section is for young men with no common sense.
“On your right, we have books for greedy young men in government.
“Next to it is the section for young men who take what does not belong to them.
“On your left are books for the shameless young men who return to their vomit.
“Next to it are books for young men who stage police drama in front of their homes or at the National Assembly. Plus those who jump out of moving vehicles and doing the Tarzan tree to tree jump while escaping from imaginary kidnappers.
“Upstairs is the section for young men who have no honour and cannot spell the word, “Loyalty”. Next to it is the section with books for self-centred young men….
“Saraki: Ha baba, You keep saying young men….
“OBJ: If you don’t like books for young men, you can visit Mr. Ibrahim Magu at the new EFCC building. They have modern rooms with books for young and old people.
Your Excellency your library is beautiful. Thanks for showing me around.
“Yeah right! It was not political.
“ME: Fat chance! Of course, It was totally political. To be specific, it was about President Buhari, Gov. Adams Oshiomhole and APC. We were not born yesterday.”
