Presidency Reacts to Atiku Visit to Obasanjo in Abeokuta
In less than 24hours, the presidency has shown it concerns to the visit of the Peoples Democratic Party’s presidential candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar to former President Olusegun Obasanjo in Abeokuta.
The presidency through Mallam Garba Sheu said it was not surprised by Obasanjo’s attitude of double standards and that they will lose together.
“The Presidency has received the news of former President Olusegun Obasanjo’s predictable U-turn and somersault on the endorsement of the PDP candidate, Atiku Abubakar, at a meeting Thursday, and to say that we are the least surprised by the well-rehearsed theatre. They will lose together. Listening to the prepared statement of the former President after the meeting showed the usual ego trip and “I know it all” character of Chief Obasanjo.”
Garba Sheu also said that Obasanjo does not understand modern day politics that is characterised by good governance.
“In the first place, we dare to say that a pompous statement from the former President advising Nigerians on a vote against President Buhari is the best recommendation that can come at this time. It also betrayed a lack of understanding of today’s politics which is about good governance.”
The presidency goes further to advise Nigerians to not allow PDP to take us back to the era of corruption and backwardness and that they will not be distracted from delivering their promise.
“The country voted for change in 2015 and a leader that ensures good governance which only President Buhari and the APC can provide.”
