Former president Olusegun Obasanjo in his autobiography “My Watch” taken a swipe at his former deputy, Atiku Abubakar, former Senate president, Ken Nnamani, ex-Lagos state governor, Bola Tinubu and former minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Mallam Nasir el-Rufai, defining most of them as liars.
Now that the case of Atiku has been upturn, can we as well consider issues raised against other names mentioned above as irrelevant ?
It is a good thing that Obasanjo to have forgive Atiku, because God commanded us to forgive one another.
Atiku is a ‘shameless liar,’ Obasanjo says in his book “my Watch”
Other statements of Obasanjo on Atiku read below:
Now Talking about Atiku- “* That was what I brought him for, but he was impatient and over-ambitious. He was not ready to learn and to wait. His marabout, who predicted that despite being elected as governor, he would not be sworn in as a governor, which happened, also assured him that he would take over from me in a matter of months rather than years.
“All his plans, appointments of people and his actions were towards the actualisation of his marabout’s prediction. Once I realised his intention and programme, I watched him like a hawk without giving any indication of what I knew and letting down my guard. I could not succumb to the distraction, diversion and malevolence of an ambitious but unwise deputy, ” Said Obasanjo.
But the issues raised in the book “My Watch” beyond Obasanjo grieviancy, besides, it can be as well believed that other people alleged in the book are mere comedy.
Finally, whatever Obasanjo says today, how relevant is it going to be tomorrow? This is a question to ask another day.
