Naija News recalls that Obasanjo made the claim in an event to commemorate his 82nd birthday anniversary, which held at the Obasanjo Presidential Library in Abeokuta, the Ogun state capital.
He said: “Buhari; there is nothing personal between me and him … I am his boss, with all due respect.
“The point is that I have been in that position longer than any Nigerian will ever be there.”
“You see that in a democracy, to criticize a policy of the government is not a family affair; even if it is my brother that is there and is not doing the things that I believe he should do, he must be criticized.”
Reacting in a post on Twitter, Festus Keyamo said if there’s anyone to be handed the title of ‘boss of all bosses’, Yakubu Gowon was deserving having held the record of longest unbroken reign as Head-of-State.
“Just to set the records straight: The boss of ALL bosses today in Nigeria is Gen. Yakubu Gowon who holds the record of the SINGLE longest unbroken reign as Head-of-State.
“He’s senior to ALL. And his access is always guaranteed. He goes into the Villa ANYTIME to offer useful advice,” he said.
