Plot By Obasanjo, Buhari To Form Interim Govt Uncovered – FG

buhari_objThe Minister of Police Affairs, Alhaji Jelili Adesiyan, on Monday, claimed that he had uncovered a plot by former President Olusegun Obasanjo and the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Maj.-Gen. Muhammadu Buhari (retd.) to form an interim government.

The minister disclosed this at the Sheraton Hotel, Lagos, during the launch of a book titled, “Watch The Watcher: A Book of Remembrance of the Obasanjo Years”, written by Yinka Odumakin, which is a rejoinder to Obasanjo’s controversial three volume autobiography, “My Watch”.

Adesiyan said as a counter-measure, he had already directed the Inspector General of Police, Suleiman Abba; and the Department of State Service to arrest anybody that made inflammatory statements ahead of the 2015 elections.

He said, “Many of those in the APC are disgruntled PDP members who are no longer relevant and because they could not have their way, they have started to heat up the polity. They have said they will form a parallel government if they lose.

“I have already told the IG and the DSS to arrest anybody making such mutinous and inflammatory statements”.

According to the minister, his suspicion was fuelled by a threat made by the Rivers State Governor, Rotimi Amaechi, to the effect that the APC would form a parallel government if the 2015 general elections were rigged.

He added, “Obasanjo is already planning to install an interim government with Buhari. But we will vote and we will work with whoever wins the election”.

The minister also shed some light on the ongoing feud between Obasanjo and President Goodluck Jonathan, saying the ex-president picked Jonathan, who was then Bayelsa State governor as late President Umaru Yar’Adua’s running mate because he felt he could control him but his plans backfired.

The minister said, “He picked a President that was sick and while we were campaigning for the President, he (Yar’Adua) was always in Germany receiving treatment. While many were lobbying for the VP slot, Obasanjo picked a gentleman, Goodluck Jonathan, who had no strong political base so that he could control him.

“Unfortunately for Obasanjo, God had a better plan and Jonathan refused to be used. Obasanjo, being the man that he is, has now teamed up with Bola Tinubu and Atiku Abubakar to snatch power but Tinubu will outsmart him because we Osun people are smart. Ask Tinubu, he is my brother, from my state. He is from Iragbiji while I am from Ode-Omu”.


  1. What u are saying now is purely amounts to heating up the polity,and this kind of a thing happen in a country where there is absence of trut..the country processes and policies is sick and we are saying rubbish arouns the country it is well.

  2. Shameless minister. “he picked a man that was sick. ..while we were campaigning for …so you did campaign for a sick man? You instructed the police and DSS to arrest anyone making inflammatory statements, except the person is a PDP member or supporter. Did he hear Asari speak on 2015?

  3. The minister had hit the nail on the head. Their selfish ambitions and conspiracy will always comes to light. God will soon loose vengeance on them. It will be more easier for a Camel to enter through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.

  4. That will be illegal as there is no provision for interim government under the Constitution. Even the doctrine of necessity does not arise.

  5. Ndi igbo we should rise and take our destiny in out hands.south south and south east should now fight for sepration lets part waysoooo obj and his northen counterparts are now fight us lets fight backooo i am crying alaud now so that mu people will hear me
