Former Military Head of State, Gen. Ibrahim Babangida yesterday hit back at former Presidential candidate of Congress for Progressive Change [CPC], Gen. Muhammadu Buhari who accused his regime of being behind the destruction of oil sector.
Babangida, a Chieftain of Peoples Democratic Party [PDP] threatened to expose the “holier-than thou-attitude” of Gen. Buhari.
The former head of state, who spoke through Prince Kassim Afegbua, his media adviser, reminded Gen. Buhari that those who live in glass houses should not throw stones.
Besides, Babaginda, the former PDP Presidential aspirant, urged President Goodluck Jonathan to learn to accept criticisms.
He also advised Dr. Jonathan to look elsewhere, not him, if he is blaming past leaders that are criticizing him.
Afegbua said: “On President Jonathan, there is nothing wrong in criticism if it is constructive and in the interest of the country. Gen. Babangida is one unique former President who does not criticise a sitting President as a matter of courtesy.
“If President Jonathan is blaming past leaders, he should look elsewhere, certainly not IBB.
“On Gen. Buhari, it is not in IBB’s tradition to take up issues with his colleague former President. But for the purpose of record, we are conversant with Gen. Buhari’s so-called holier-than-thou attitude.
“He is a one-time Minister of Petroleum and we have good records of his tenure as minister.
“Secondly, he also presided over the Petroleum Trust Fund ( PTF) which records we also have.
“We challenge him to come out with clean hands in those two portfolios he headed. Or, we will help him to expose his. “records of performance during those periods.
“Those who live in glass houses do not throw stones. Gen. Buhari should be properly guided.”
