Former President Olusegun Obasanjo says all those who are a part of the present administration will not only go to jail, but spend time in hell as well if the extent of their corrupt deals are exposed.

He stated this in an interview with the BBC Yoruba.

“This is not a prophecy. Those in government today, if we expose them, all of them will enter hell; they will not only go to jail. They will go to hell.

“Whoever that God does not expose his sins to the public is the person whose secret is kept,” Dr. Obasanjo said.

While accusing Buhari of nepotism, Obasanjo said the President gave priority to his ethnic group when appointing people into sensitive positions.

Obasanjo added: “Look at what is happening, the person that is leading us says he cannot appoint any other tribes into the posts he considers sensitive because he does not trust them. If he cannot trust my tribe and your tribe what is the benefit?

"And he still wants my tribe and your tribe to vote for him.

"So, he can ask us to vote for him but he cannot trust us to be appointed into sensitive positions. What is sauce for the goose is also sauce for the gander.

“If you don’t trust us, how do you want me to trust you? If you trust me and I misbehave replace me with another person. But if only your maternal and paternal relatives are the only people you can appoint because they are the only people you can trust.

“In Nigeria, where we have tribes numbering about 500, you now said you could not trust some people. That is what we are saying".

He also explained why he forgave former Vice-President and presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar.

Comparing Atiku with Buhari, Obasanjo said his former deputy, though not a messiah, was far better than the incumbent President.

He said, “What I am saying is that where we are today; our present situation, if you look at those who are there today and our boss (Buhari), I insist that Atiku will do better than them.''
