As the row between former president, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, and President Goodluck Jonathan deepens, the former president has insisted that he will never keep mum. bout the goings on in the country; e however, pointed out that despite the public perception on the disagreement between the two of them, Jonathan remained his president.
The elder statesman stated this when he hosted the National Chairman of the ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Bamanga Tukur, in his Hilltop country home, Abeokuta, Ogun State capital.
According to OBJ, “the country, the party and government would remain my primary concern, because, if there is no Nigeria, there will not be a party, and if there is no party, there will be nothing to govern on the platform of the party”.
He then added: “If there is anything that requires my own comment, position or views. I will say it. It is only when you kill me that I will stop doing so. It is my passion, patriotism and love that will continue to make me say my own. If it is the party that I see that something is inimical to the growth, I will talk.”
