New Book: You Will Pay For Ignoring Court Injunction- Kashamu Tells Obasanjo

A lot have been said ever since president Obasanjo presented
his new book, The Watch, this week. People who have seen the book said he criticized
President Jonathan, spoke about Tinubu, Gbenga Daniel and a host of others.
Before the book was presented yesterday in Lagos, the Chairman, Organisation
and Mobilisation Committee of the Peoples Democratic Party in the South-West,
Mr. Buruji Kashamu had earlier gotten an injunction restraining him or his
agents from publishing the book, an injunction the former president ignored.

Kashamu in a statement personally signed by him as however
says he will be dragging obasanjo to court again alongside the people who made
the presentation of the book possible. The statement reads;
“I have asked my lawyers to press criminal contempt charges
against him(Obasanjo) and all those who assisted him in flouting the orders of
the court.
“I will ensure that they are all dragged before the court,
and particularly, Obasanjo, without his cap, to show why he should not be
punished for criminal contempt.”
Kashamu noted that the ex-president’s action had confirmed
his knack for lawlessness and arbitrariness.
He added, “Everybody knows that good governance is based on
the rule of law, due process and respect for constituted authorities.
“It beats my imagination that this man can be sermonising
about good governance when he shamelessly advertises all the elements of bad
“In short, he is bad governance personified. He is the worst
advertisement for the product he is trying to advertise – good governance. He
has shown that he does not have respect for the judiciary, and that he is above
the law.

“Certainly, President Goodluck Jonathan and his predecessor,
the late President Umaru Yar’Adua, and others he criticised in the
controversial book, which I am reliably informed he did not write, are made of
a sterner stuff than him. They are true democrats and gentlemen to the core.”
