You’re confused, Presidency slams Obasanjo

By - - [ ]

The Presidency yesterday described the recent utterances by former president Olusegun Obasanjo, as a sign of confusion not worthy of attention.

Obasanjo who endorsed the Presidential candidate of the PDP, Atiku Abubakar in October, at the weekend was said to have shifted ground. A story headline, “Atiku: Obasanjo shifts political gear to neutral” went viral.

Countering the reports Obasanjo, in a statement by his media, Kehinde Akinyemi, said only a fool would sit on the fence in the situation the country finds itself.

Obasanjo said Nigeria was being destroyed by incompetence, lack of focus and nepotism under President Muhammadu Buhari.

Reacting to Obasanjo’s attack, presidential spokesperson, Garba Shehu, said that whoever Obasanjo chooses to support at the 2019 elections is irrelevant, as the former president had publicly changed his mind on the matter so many times over the past few months alone.

“Former president Obasanjo denounces one person today and supports that same person the next day. When it pleases him, he brings God into the matter and uses that as his excuse for whatever position he has chosen,” he said.

Shehu added that he was not surprised that newspapers reported Obasanjo expressing neutrality at a weekend forum, only for the former president to express a completely different stance after a day or two.

“We have learnt not to take his utterances seriously anymore. We know that the slightest wind can make him change his mind again. After all, this is the same man who publicly tore his party registration card barely four years ago, and he now claims to be backing the same party,” Shehu said.
