We gathered that Sani, in a recent interview with Punch newspaper, said that if the ex-president sees him (Sani) as an unarmed robber, then Obasanjo is the father of unarmed robbers.

Sani said he was at Kirikiri Maximum Prison, Lagos at the same time with the ex-president and he doubted that the former president can face him and call him a robber.

He said the problem the ex-president has with the National Assembly started during his tenure as president.

Sani said: "Sometimes, it is easier for people to criticise the National Assembly than to criticise the Presidency because if you want to criticise the government, you are targeting Buhari, but if you are attacking the National Assembly, you are giving relief to some people.

"I know very well that Obasanjo cannot call me as an individual that name. We have been in the same prison with him; we wore the same handcuffs; we were jailed together with him. Certainly, if Shehu Sani is an unarmed robber in the National Assembly, then he is my father because we were in Kirikiri (Maximum Prison, Lagos) together. So, he is the father of an unarmed robber.

"As far as I am concerned, I believe that his problem with the National Assembly started during his own time (as president) but there is a different generation of members of the National Assembly now. These are not the members that he had issues with."

The senator also said the people closest to President Muhammadu Buhari are the ones who constitute the much talked about cabals in his government.

Sani, while describing the cabals in Buhari's government said: "They are close confidants of the President; the president’s men who exploit that confidence and truth they have with Mr. President to manipulate the government and conduct the affairs of the government not in the interest of the person who they are serving but their personal interests.

"Those are the people who constitute a cabal and these are the ones I tagged wolves and hyenas and jackals."

Meanwhile we recently reported that Obasanjo has said that President Muhammadu Buhari has not disappointed him in areas he is strong in.

The former president speaking in an interview with BBC said President Buhari has performed fairly well in areas of fighting corruption.

He said not everyone would be satisfied with the way President Buhari has gone about it, but he has tackled corruption.

In the area of insurgency, Obasanjo said the president as a former soldier would do his best which he has done.
