Comments On Insecurity : Obasanjo Fires Back At Gowon - How He Fell Out with Jonathan

Former President Olusegun Obasanjo at the weeker took on former Head of State, retired General Yakubu Gowon for describing him as “highly irresponsible” for criticising President Goodluck Jonathan’s ‘weak’ approach to the insecurity in the North-East.

General Gowon used the phrase on Obasanjo at the launch of a book, Stay At The Top, authored by a fellow of the Institute of Chartered Accountant of Nigeria (ICAN), Omoniyi Komolafe, last week.  Gowon’s remark was captured in the media thus: “Obasanjo is highly irresponsible to have made such comments about the present government.

Many people have condemned what he (Obasanjo) did in Odi and Zaki Biam. So, it was irresponsible for him to defend it or accuse the present administration.”

The former Head of State referred to Obasanjo’s response to a question on the Boko Haram crisis in Warri recently, where Obasanjo said there was need for President Jonathan to be decisive in tackling the insecurity, just as he did in dealing with the militancy in Odi, Bayelsa State in 1999.
