Frank said in a statement in Abuja that Chief Anenih should tell Nigerians one good thing he will be remembered for as a politician, adding that he also helped to destroy his own party, the PDP.

Chief Anenih, who served as the Minister of Works and Housing between 1999 and 2002, had said in his book, titled ‘My Life and Nigerian Politics,’ which was presented in Abuja, at weekend, that Atiku became too ambitious during the build-up to the 2003 presidential election in which Obasanjo was seeking a second term.

He said Chief Anenih lied on his 2003 account, adding that more than 22 PDP governors were strongly behind Atiku to contest the Presidency but choose to stepped down for his boss because of his loyalty.

He said it was out of place for Chief Anenih to described the former Vice-president Alhaji Atiku Abubakar as a ambitious politician “when he himself was more desperate than Atiku who had opportunity to become President in the past but remained loyal to his boss. “

He said: “it is high time Chief Anenih should also tell the world the kind of legacy he is leaving behind in all his years in politics. Baba Anenih’s desperation to remain in the corridor of power made him to force former Goodluck Jonathan to run again in 2015 when he knew he (Jonathan) couldn’t win.

“Chief Tony Anenih has lost the moral right to talk about former Vice President Atiku Abubarkar or any other Nigerian for that matter seeing that he is one of the reasons Nigeria and especially the Niger Delta region is where we are today.

“What has Anenih done for the Niger Delta where he comes from? Instead of using his position to help the Niger delta and Nigeria at large to find lasting solutions to its numerous challenges, he choosed to support third term agenda.

“Under his watch as Minister of Works, 300 Billion Naira disappeared into thin air. As NPA chairman, what positive contribution did he make for the benefit of Nigeria? Even in the South-South where Anenih comes from, Atiku a Northerner has touched people’s lives positively in terms of job employment more than Anenih will ever do in his life time. Anenih is not called Mr fixer for no reason, he helped put Nigeria and Nigerians in the fix we find ourselves today.

  1. What legacy has he left behind? NONE!!!!!!!! What did he do as Minister for Works? NOTHING!!!!!!!!! Among those who have impoverished Nigeria/Nigerians. He should truly be apologising to Nigerians not eulogising himself. I wonder whether his children can not tell him the truth.

  2. i sincerely thank you TIMI FRANK for your intake on this old wagon who call himself something when he was actually nothing but a disgrace to the nation.......... like i have earlier said in one of my publication......... In this regard, I want to say that the place of good leaders in history is not determine by how much they have stolen.... or the length of their tenure........ but by the impact of their policies in the life of a nation and his citizens.... IS THIS NOT THE SAME CARGO WHO CANNOT FIX BENIN-ORE ROAD WHEN HE WAS MINISTER FOR WORKS?
