The People Democratic Party presidential candidate at the February 2019 election, Atiku Abubakar, raised the alarm on Monday that the government of President Muhammadu Buhari was desperately plotting to frame former President Olusegun Obasanjo to prevent him from criticizing the administration of Buhari.
In a statement by his press office, Atiku also claimed that the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission was feeding media members with intentional falsehoods in an effort to cause disaffection between him and Obasanjo on the one side and between Obasanjo and Nigerians on the other.

He said, “The reality is that the present administration is desperate to plug into a crime in former President Olusegun Obasanjo as a manner to silence his voice, which they see as the pre-eminent critical voice against the Nigerians ‘ misrule.”

“Atiku said his son-in-law, Mallam Babalele Abdullahi, did not give cash to the Olusegun Obasanjo Library for the prevention of doubt.

“He said it’s true that Abdullahi made it easier to donate N50m to the Presidential Library of Olusegun Obasanjo.

“He added that the library was also donated by many other people, including civic traditional leaders, state governors, bankers and industrial captains.

Atiku alleged that in an attempt to robe Obasanjo into a crime, Buhari’s government officials allegedly asked the Federal Inland Revenue Service to include “false and libelous” Obasanjo Farm in a published list of tax evaders, along with the names of other sympathizers of the Peoples Democratic Party, such as prominent international singer Mr David Adeleke, popularly called Davido, who played a prominent role in Osun State’s PDP governorship campaign, allegedly punished for it.
