Adams Oshiomhole had reportedly said that the former President of Nigeria Olusegun Obasanjo would be prosecuted if the President Muhammadu Buhari decides to probe the power sector.

Oshiomhole disclosed this while addressing crowd in Jos on Friday during the opening of Plateau State Governor Simon Lalong’s re-election campaign at the Rwang Pam Stadium.

He said,  “Obasanjo said in 1999 that if he was elected President with his Vice-President, Atiku Abubakar, he would fix the power sector in six months and that there would be electricity supply all over Nigeria. Many years later, we realised what he meant.

“He and his Vice-President spent $16bn on power sector,  after eight years there was more darkness in Nigeria than when they assumed office. So when President Muhammadu  Buhari took over in 2015, he asked a question: where is the power? If Mr President pursues the answer to that question to its logical conclusion, he must put Obasanjo on trial.”

Reacting on Saturday through his twitter handle, the Kaduna Federal Senator insinuated that many members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) will be fingered if the ruling party put Obasanjo on trial.

He said ” If the ruling party will put Baba Obj for trial for the“$16 Billion power” project, as they are threatening,they will literally find tonnes of stolen cables,high tension wires & transformers in the houses of some of their members, whom are now inducted into the hall of saints. “

Sani was a member of the APC before he defected to the Peoples Redemption Party (PRP) in October 2018 after a long fallout with the Kaduna State Governor, Mallam Nasir El-Rufai.
