The Oba of Lagos, Rilwan Akiolu has said that President Buhari is not a materialistic person.
The monarch said this in an interview with Vanguard recently.
According to reports, Oba Akiolu also called on politicians who don’t want to hear the truth not to come to his palace.
“It’s unfortunate that Buhari did not stay long as Head of State in 1984, Nigeria would have been better. Buhari is one of the few, politicians who are not materialistic.
“Majority of them are ‘grab –grab’ politicians. Let me use this medium to tell all those politicians moving about because election is coming, that if they are not ready to hear the truth, they should not come to my palace.
“I will tell them that they are thieves, Nigerians know them, and youths should not allow politicians to use them,” the monarch added.
Speaking further, Oba Akiolu also took a swipe at former President Olusegun Obasanjo, describing him as the major problem of Nigeria.
He said “The major problem of Nigeria today is former President Olusegun Obasanjo. When he was in government, he was running after Lagos while someone was cornering all the blue-chip companies that belong to the country.
“He cannot win election in his ward in Abeokuta. He ignored all Supreme Court judgements which were in favour of Lagos state.”
