Since Obasanjo’s book, The Watch, was released, so many top politicians are now uncomfortable .
The book heavily criticized president Jonathan, spoke about Tinubu, Gbenga Daniel and a host of others.
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 Obasanjo ignored.

Kashamu said he will drag the former president to court for ignoring the injuction.
He said: “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.”
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 governance.
“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.”
Obasanjo’s book, The Watch had criticized President Goodluck Jonathan of being a bad leader and that late President Yar’Adua had lied to the President regarding his health.
