Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, has advised former President Olusegun Obasanjo to stop the consistent attacks against the immediate past President, Goodluck Jonathan.
“Dr Goodluck Jonathan is no longer the president of Nigeria; he should be allowed to live a private life devoid of mudslinging from elder statesmen like Chief Obasanjo,” said Fayose in a statement issued in Ado-Ekiti on Monday by his Special Assistant on Public Communicationsq, Lere Olayinka.
Obasanjo had while speaking at the 11th Convocation Lecture of Benson Idahosa University (BIU) Benin, Edo State, said: “The performance of Jonathan while in office will hunt the people of the South-South region for a long time to come.”
However, Fayose dismissed Obasanjo’s position. He noted that the people of the South-South had already demonstrated their approval of Jonathan’s performance while in office by voting overwhelmingly for him on March 28 despite the gang-up orchestrated by Chief Obasanjo and his allies.
