Obasanjo stated this on Tuesday during his 82nd birthday anniversary celebration held at the Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library ,in Abeokuta
Obasanjo said this while responding to the remarks by the Alake and Paramount Ruler of Egbaland, Oba Michael Gbadebo who advised Obasanjo to stop attacking Buhari as he clocks 82 .
