A former Chief of Army Staff, Lt-Gen Alani Akinrinade (retd.), has asked Nigerians to ignore former President Olusegun Obasanjo.

He said that Obasanjo belongs in the dustbin of history.

Akinrinade said this on Thursday.

The ex-general also urged the media to stop giving Obasanjo publicity as he lacks credibility.

He said, “The Nigerian media appear to have forgotten they are indeed the fourth estate of the realm. They are gatekeepers. They owe Nigeria the responsibility of keeping this irritable man where he belongs- the waste bin of history.

“Like his daughter, Iyabo, reminded him in her letter, Nigeria does not belong to him. He should allow Nigerians choose who they want and stop goading the citizenry for his own selfish interests.”

Akinrinade asked Nigerians to ignore Obasanjo’s call for the election of former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar.

He said Obasanjo’s modus operandi was to support a new candidate at almost every election cycle and once the person is elected, Obasanjo would begin to criticise the new President.

The former army chief said Obasanjo only acts in defense of his own selfish interest.
