Former Head of State, General Abdulsalami Abubakar, has revealed that former President Olusegun Obasanjo took steps to sue the tactical government after he was let out of jail.

Abubakar, who was military head of state somewhere in the range of 1998 and 1999, delivered all political detainees that were imprisoned by the previous military head of state, General Sani Abacha who kicked the bucket bafflingly that very year.

Abubakar additionally said it was bizarre the allegation that his administration forced Obasanjo who later turned into the President and served for two successive terms of eight years.

Thinking back on the occasion of the period before Nigeria’s progress to the regular citizen government in 1999, the previous head of state reviewed that Obasanjo let him know he needed to sue the tactical government for “disintegrating” his organizations.

The senior legislator said, “I generally grin and snicker when I am blamed or my administration is denounced for forcing Obasanjo. Presently obviously we delivered Obasanjo and different detainees and exculpated them. So when Obasanjo was delivered he came to see me, saying he planned to prosecute the public authority. “For what reason would you say you will do that?”

“He said his business was disintegrated by the military, his common freedoms have been abused, that he didn’t submit any upset, etc thus forth.I said ‘Sir, kindly let past be former, say thanks to God you are alive today, disregard these things. A portion of the issues you referenced, inside my power I will investigate that, so we left it at that’.

Abubakar likewise expressed that the public authority attempted to “restore” Obasanjo and other delivered detainees who griped that their organizations were impacted.

“Well I am thinking about his organizations, regardless of whether he was assisted with something to resuscitate them which was one of his objections.

“Obviously not just him, all individuals that were detained in without a doubt, we attempted to restore them; to help them in for sure. In without a doubt we did what we could to help them, so you can’t compare that to carrying him to challenge for a political decision,” he added.
