The Oba of Lagos, Oba Rilwan Akiolu of Lagos, yesterday, took a swipe at former President Olusegun Obasanjo, accusing him of being the cause of the injustices he was accusing the present administration.

This is just as he has described as false, reports in the social media that he had endorsed the All Progressives Congress,’ (APC) presidential candidate, General Muhammadu Buhari.

Akiolu, who was one of the special guests at the commissioning of four Nigerian Navy Ships by President Goodluck Johnathan, told journalists while leaving the venue of the occasion at Naval Dockyard, Victoria Island, that Obasanjo allegedly inflicted pains on Lagos State while he was President.

God gives many people long lives so that they can get enough punishment, like what is happening now. All the injustices they did against Lagos State from 1999 to 2007, God is exposing them. All the accusations the former President, Obasanjo is giving now, he initiated and nurtured it. He masterminded it and now he is complaining. God has a way of doing things. More are still coming to him,” he said.

On his alleged endorsement of Buhari as president, he said: “Who gave you that rumour? Who said so? Some of the things they are writing, for instance, like that former Minister Obanikoro, I went to his aged mother that they should warn him seriously. For the Presidency, I support the best person.

“If I want to do something, I do not pretend, God almighty Allah will give the Presidency to the people Nigerians want to do the best for this country”, he stated.

He was, however, quick to state: “I have picked Akinwunmi Ambode as the next governor of Lagos State . I have my reason for saying it and I do not hide it. I acted on God’s wisdom and picked him and by the grace of God, he will be the governor of this state.”
