Former President Olusegun Obasanjo is in hot soup as the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has threatened to expose him over his comment about its presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar.
PDP Board of Trustees (BoT) Chairman, Senator Walid Jibrin said:
“If former President Olusegun Obasanjo fails to clarify the statement in 48 hours, the party will be left with no option but to expose him and tell Nigerians who he is in reality.”
“The PDP has high regards and respect for former President Obasanjo, but it will be very disappointing if the statement credited to him and carried in virtually all the national dailies is true.”
“The statement which was among others that he, Obasanjo, made a mistake of appointing the PDP Presidential candidate, Alhaji Atiku as his running mate was unfortunate.”
“In the present circumstance, I wish to appeal to former President Obasanjo to come out openly to repeat what he has said,. Whether or not he was misquoted or meant what was credited to him.”
“Although he has not debunked what was reported, one can assume that what was quoted to have been said by him is correct, but if he fails to openly come out and say which is correct in 48 hours, you will hear the bombardment and I will have no option but to break the egg and tell the whole world and Nigerians who is Obasanjo.”
“There is no doubt Obasanjo may still be angry with Atiku even after helping him to succeed but perhaps for truncating his third term agenda, in any case, Alhaji Abubakar Atiku is our presidential candidate and I can tell you for sure that he will be the President in 2023 In shaa Allah”.
