How I Prostrated Before Obasanjo To Beg For Forgiveness – Okupe

Former senior special assistant to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan on public affairs, Doyin Okupe, Friday narrated his encounter with former President Olusegun Obasanjo and how he begged and prostrated before him.

Writing on his Facebook page, Okupe said Obasanjo “descended on me heavily and vented his anger copiously. I prostrated and held his feet as a well trained Yoruba man and pleaded earnestly for his forgiveness.”

“Last Sunday , in the company of some friends I met with Baba Obasanjo principally to try and settle and resolve the misunderstanding that has existed between Baba and I since I joined the Jonathan’s administration,” he wrote.

“Vintage Baba, he descended on me heavily and vented his anger copiously. I prostrated and held his feet as a well trained Yoruba man and pleaded earnestly for his forgiveness, occasionally given short explanations for areas I considered my actions were misunderstood.

“Also typical of Baba, ever willing to forgive a repentant son, we embraced, I even kissed him as a loving son.

“Politics sometimes is such a bad business, you hurt your friends and even benefactors, but its all that is well that ends well,” he wrote.

  • Well, why are u begging him self? Is it not because that Ex-president lose it power and ure here begging as if because ure loyal or ure begging because of another chance of gaining power…bad Politicians!

  • Double talk -A well -trained Yoruba man will never say to his elder that his (elders )mouth smells.
    Devine forgiveness can only be achieved if you change from your evil ways.
    A word is enough for the wise.
