Senator Dino Melaye, the governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in the November 11, 2023, Kogi State election, questions former President Olusegun Obasanjo's silence on recent national issues, suggesting a potential bias in favor of "Yoruba parapoism." Melaye specifically points out Obasanjo's failure to write a letter to President Bola Tinubu amid the prevailing economic hardships and insecurity in the country.
It's noteworthy that during the administration of former President Muhammadu Buhari, Obasanjo consistently wrote letters, urging Buhari to address various challenges facing the nation. However, since President Bola Tinubu assumed office, Obasanjo has not penned any letters addressing issues such as economic hardship and insecurity in the country.
In a tweet, Senator Dino Melaye questions Obasanjo's inaction and urges him to write a letter to President Tinubu, emphasizing the current compelling reasons to do so. He tweets, "Is Baba Obasanjo doing Yoruba parapoism? He is yet to write Tinubu a letter, and there are compelling reasons to write one now. Baba, write ooooo….we are waiting. Senator Dino Melaye."
