Obasanjo Is An Embarrassment To The Nigerian Military - Defence Headquarters

The Nigerian military has criticised former President Olusegun Obasanjo describing him as an embarrassment to the force he once served.

A statement by the Defence Headquarters on its Facebook page said the retired general constituted a serious embarrassment to the military before everyone with reasonable judgment of the values and standard to statesmanship.

The Defence Headquarters said the comments credited to Chief Obasanjo alleging that the postponement of the General Elections was to enable President Jonathan to use the Service Chiefs to plot a tenure extension is to say the least, very surprising.

The military added that most of his utterances lately indicated an attitude of playing to the gallery or indulging in politicization of serious national security or military affairs.

Obasanjo who has criticised President Goodluck Jonathan and his government, said the postponement of the elections was to further the interest of the president.
