Shehu Sani, the Senator representing Kaduna Central has faulted critics condemning former president Olusegun Obasanjo over his position on President Muhammadu Buhari.
Obasanjo had on Sunday publicly announced that he is still resolved to work against President Muhammadu Buhari’s second term bid in 2019.
He declared his support for the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP saying only a fool will be neutral when his country was being destroyed with incompetence, corruption, lack of focus, insecurity, nepotism, brazen impunity and denial of the obvious.
The former president has since come under attacks in some quarters over his stance on Buhari’s government.
Sani, reacting, urged critics who praised Obasanjo while he condemned past presidents to stop “throwing thorns at Obasanjo” just because he is against their candidate.
The Kaduna lawmaker, on his Twitter page, wrote: “When Obasanjo was whipping Abacha,IBB, Umaru and Goodluck Jonathan, You gave him flowers; And now he is lashing Baba,You are throwing thorns at him.
“The sweet chocolate in your mouth has turned to bitter Kola. When you see Obasanjo lashing your enemy with Koboko,pad your own body with thick layers of cotton.
