Speaking via a letter that was shared via the official Twitter handle of Reno Omoki, his former presidential aide, he said the news is said because the dethronement is ‘under deserved.’

He added that the news is a good one because he has paid the price.

He wrote:

Obasanjo, ever the diplomat, is really saying something deeper about Sanusi Lamido Sanusi. Read the letter carefully. He did not say what happened to Sanusi was undeserved. He said it was UNDERSERVED! In other words, Sanusi deserved even worse than he got.
