The People’s Democratic Party Presidential Campaign Organisation (PDPPCO), Sunday, said former President Olusegun Obasanjo’s only reason for his continuous attack on the administration of President Goodluck Jonathan is because he has refused to be a stooge to Obasanjo.
According to the organisation, soon after Jonathan was elected the president of the country, the former President tried everything possible to control and teleguide Jonathan, but the president did not accede to his requests, most of which were simply wrong and unacceptable to a government with plans for the people.
Addressing Journalists in Abuja, Director, Media and Publicity of PDP Presidential Campaign Organisation, Femi Fani-Kayode said Obasanjo has been lampooning the President and trying to destroy the credibility of the election process because he knew that the President would win the March 28 election.
“After Jonathan came to power, Obasanjo not only tried to control and teleguide him but he also asked him to do a number of things that were simply wrong and unacceptable. It is for President Goodluck Jonathan himself to divulge those things and I am sure that he will do so at the appropriate time. Needless to say President Jonathan refused to be teleguided and told what to do even though at all times he showed Obasanjo maximum respect and accorded him all the privileges, access and courtesies that is due to a former Head of State and a father and mentor. This continued to be the case even after Obasanjo consistently attempted to undermine his government and ridicule his efforts,” Fani-Kayode said.
