Obasanjo is upset with Atiku for resisting the PDP’s third-term agenda.

Olusegun Obasanjo received harsh criticism from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Monday for his comment regarding the late Atiku Abubakar, who served as vice president.

Obasanjo admitted on Saturday that he had chosen the PDP’s presidential candidate as his running partner in the 1999 general elections, which was a grave error.

After defeating Chief Olu Falae of the Alliance for Democracy (AD) in that year’s election, he was chosen as the nation’s president and ruled it for eight years.

Before the end of their 2007 term, Obasanjo and Abubakar had a falling out.

Walid Jibril, the chairman of the PDP Board of Trustees, responded to the ex-comments president’s at a press conference in Abuja and threatened to expose his character if he did not clarify it within 48 hours.

He said Obasanjo was angry with Abubakar for truncating his third term agenda.

Jibril said: “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 Insha Allah.”
