Presidency reveals ‘conversation’ between Obasanjo and Saraki

*Saraki, Obasanjo

Social media aide to President Muhammadu Buhari, Mrs. Lauretta Onochie has revealed the ‘contents’ of the conversation between the senate president, Dr. Bukola Saraki and the former president, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo.

It would be recalled that Saraki had visited the Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library (OOPL) in Abeokuta, Ogun State on Monday where they had a closed-door meeting.

After the session, Saraki told journalists that he visited the former president missed the official opening of the library.

“You know I missed the official opening of the library and that is why I have decided to come and see the place and honestly, it is beautiful. We are very proud of what he has done here,” he said.

He described the library as a beautiful edifice that should make all Nigerians proud.

However, not satisfied with the senate president’s explanation, Onochie published on her facebook page what she claimed might have been the conversation between Saraki and Obasanjo during the visit.

She wrote: “Library that was opened since last year? 17 months ago! This guy keeps treating Nigerians as babies. So this must be the conversation that took place between Saraki and OBJ. Enjoy!”

Saraki: Sorry Your Excellency, I missed the opening of the library 17 months ago. OBJ: Nothing to be sorry about, the library is still open. Let’s look in.

Saraki: Yes Baba. This is impressive. It smells of the people’s money.

OBJ: I will pretend I didn’t hear that. This section is for young men with no common sense. On your right we have books for greedy young men in government.

Next to it is the section for young men who take what does not belong to them. On your left are books for the shameless young men who return to their vomit. Next to it are books for young men who stage police drama in front of their homes or at the National Assembly. Plus those who jump out of moving vehicles and doing the Tarzan tree to tree jump while escaping from imaginary kidnappers.

Upstairs is the section for young men who have no honour and cannot spell the word, “Loyalty”. Next to it is the section with books for self-centred young men….

Saraki: Ha baba, you keep saying young men….

OBJ: If you don’t like books for young men, you can visit Mr. Ibrahim Magu at the new EFCC building. They have modern rooms with books for young and old people. Your Excellency your library is beautiful. Thanks for showing me around. Yeah right!


Onochie ended with the annotation: “It was not political. ME: Fat chance! Of course, it was totally political. To be specific, it was about President Buhari, Gov. Adams Oshiomhole and APC. We were not born yesterday. God bless Nigeria.”
