Obasanjo pre-empts expulsion from PDP, dumps ruling party

Former President Olusegun Obasanjo

Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has dumped the ruling Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.

Mr. Obasanjo on Monday announced his decision to leave the party at his residence in Abeokuta, saying he was no more a politician, but would remain a statesman.

The former president indicated his decision came ahead of a plan by the party to dismiss him, possibly for alleged anti-party activities.

Mr. Obasanjo had been engaged in a running feud with President Goodluck Jonathan whom he accused of failing in leadership and encouraging corruption.

He also accused the president of plotting to stir trouble in the country resulting in a military takeover, if he loses upcoming elections. Last week, Mr. Obasanjo endorsed Mr. Jonathan’s challenger, Muhammadu Buhari.

Mr. Jonathan in turn, on Saturday, accused the former president of working to create an Interim National Government, which he hopes to head.

“They said they want to expel me from PDP, although I have not been told but I have my ears on ground. We’ve been trying to run away from a man but he pleads we wait for him at the other side of the river. I have told you before that I became president on the platform of PDP, once I leave PDP I will not join any party,” he told journalists.

“I will only be a Nigerian, I am ready to work with anybody regardless of political affiliation. Why would some people say they want to send me away, they don’t need to bother themselves, here’s your membership card, take it,” Mr. Obasanjo said, before dumping his membership card which was later torn by a member of the party from his ward.

“From today on, in the presence of all us and with your support, I am not going to be in any political party in Nigeria. I am no more a politician but a statesman both internally and externally. The issued that they want to expel me from the party for, once you people are with me what other people am I looking for,” he said.

  • Omooba

    Beginning of the end for Jonathan. The die is cast. The kingmaker has switched sides.

  • Naira

    This should have as warning to Dasuki, Mu’azu, Mark and Anenih. If Jonadaft can betray OBJ, they shouldn’t be exceptional.

  • Eze1

    What next in this drama, scene two

    • Maria

      Other people who have been contemplating leaving PDP will follow…

  • Maria

    Yes… OBJ sacrificed good governance and imposed a criminal called GEJ on Nigerians. Good riddance to bad rubbish… Jonathan is a confirmed crook.

  • Chris1408

    OBJ dumped PDP, Nigeria will dumb GEJ too. Nigerians are tired of this Otuoke thief and his gang

    • ufoma

      U and OBJ are the worst thieves, OBJ knows what he is doing. He was never part of those that formed PDP, he was just a major benefactor, he was brought from Jos prison amd made President. He is such an ingrate, his administration was more corrupt than any one, instances are NIMC scam that took billions of dollars with nothing to show for it, debt management, buy back and cancellation that they allegedly stole money, roads and airports that he concessionaired to his cronies like Babalakin that never worked, yet he was paying monies and GEJ revoked the contracts, thermal power plants he built without feed gas pipelines and they were never fired, Railway revamp project he gave billions to late Waziri and they never refurbished even a single track, should i say more, clueless people.

      • Gideon Orkar

        Jesus be praised, we have frustrated the baboon out of PDP! Let me him go and sleep with his daughter inlaws and leave us alone!!

      • Chris1408

        GEJ is the most corrupt person to ever rule Nigeria. He made Abacha and IBB put together like a child’s play.

  • Spoken word

    now that PDP and Jonathan are now in a coffin. we should promptly bury it on March 28 2015.

    • PeterPaul1

      Yes o o o !

  • Maria

    Jonathan is not a civilized man… he was raised a criminal in the jungles of Otuoke creeks. We must chase this criminal into jail.

  • MC

    OBJ uhuru at last. The gods, having planned to destroy you, are firstly making you mad. I wonder who you think you are. It’s your like and Buhari who have held this country to ransom for ages now. Did I hear you talk of being a ‘statesman’!? Please your goats and chicken at Ota farm need you more.

    • Maria

      When he campaigned for Jonathan and first brought up the doctrine of necessity to bury the Yaradua cabals, was he also not holding Nigeria backward? I agree he has held Nigeria backward by imposing a barefaced criminal called GEJ on Nigerians.

      • Omo

        My sister and fellow Nigerians you can take a horse to d river, but you can’t force it to drink water, yes let’s agree Baba Impose GEJ on us, is it Baba that’ll show him how to lead? Did ur teacher help u to write exam after teaching u Tinubu Impose Fashola, even if boys dey lament for lekki, we’re still proud of Fashola, let’s not just comment base on pple ideas research and comment base on ur ideas and convictions. Thanks

    • Omo

      Very soon am going to organise a debate where ppl will come and tell us how Buhari and Baba are the cause of Nigeria’s problem, some of us just write without proper understanding, everybody say baba is corrupt, Baba is this is his govt not bettet than this? Was Buhari’s not better than this? If we’re not first of all be truthful to ourselves how then can we change Nigeria…. Without baba saying it he’s an elders statement and non of u can do anything abt it…. Jeez naija youths where’s our morales!!!!

  • Gideon Orkar

    Otta Baboon your frustration has just started. We will finish what Abacha started!!!!! Heavy frustration o!!!

    • Maria

      Just wonder how your mama looks… your mama is a bonobo… uglier than a baboon.

      • Gideon Orkar

        As a woman in sharia land your duty is simply to open your legs (not your mouth) and walk behind a man covered up like a masquerade

        • Maria

          Yeah… that is what your bonobo mama has been to your gorilla father. I live in a civilized world… and a well groomed Christian. I know the likes of you are animals still living in the jungle. Omo oju o rola ri… eranko.

          • Gideon Orkar

            Yes my mama opens her legs for my papa. Your own mama opens here legs for everybody and every thing!!

            Be careful with that computer as you use it under that hijab. The heat can cause you stroke. Sharia biatch!

          • Maria

            You are not consistent…animal. No need arguing with a f00l like you.

          • Gideon Orkar

            go and hide that pimpled upfront you call a face. I understand your frustration as you were alone during valentine. Biko when you lost your virginity did the guy put a pillow over your face, turn out the light or was he drunk? I dont think a man can maintain an erection whilst looking at your ugly mug!

          • Omo

            Maria, u sef get time, u’re just fueling his ego, like we say in warri, na Gideon get him mouth!

          • SAM .A

            You are suffering from brain disintegration, you couldn’t recognize Maria as a Christian name, you come into this medium to attack & pour vituperation, hey man you are already going psychotic , waiting for you to go naked on March 29. Stop barking here.we need human being on this platform .

          • Gideon Orkar

            Maria is a pseudonym. He real name is Bilikisu or something that ugly. And by the way you can take your comments and stick them up that your smelly yansh. You are just a cartoon

          • SAM .A

            ‘He real name is Bilikisu or something’ .This your grammar ,and inability to be sure of your facts confirmed the brain disintegration. I have told you we need human beings here not subhuman mangro id

          • Gideon Orkar

            you are a sanctimonious cartoon wanker. You saw nothing wrong in her abusing me first. I beg go and die typical 2 faced delusional APCite

          • SAM .A

            Yes , that is the way u abuse your wife and your mum @ home , you come here to advertise your imbecility, and inhuman behavior. I wish I could knock sense into this your ossified or calcified brain. We need human beings with human feelings here not subhuman Mangro id. Indeed you are less than my dog.

          • Gideon Orkar

            Did you train that “intelligent dog” of yours to satisfy your your wife? Bc you clearly cannot do it as you prefer choking the chicken! #justasking .

          • AncientFactfinder7

            A well groomed Christian ? what are the virtues of a well groomed Christian ? Is it going about the web insulting peoples parents using vile and obnoxious names,all sorts of offensive language ? That cant be Christian,correct me if am wrong. You live in a civilized world suffice to say you live in West Europe or America,I would have thought that will reflect itself in your posts and comments.

            Dont get me wrong GEJ is a failed President,he has failed woefully by refusing to leave politics aside and pursue the entrenchment of safety of lives and property.Everyone even his supporters have seen and are seeing this and the reality of his unacceptability in March but going about insulting and using offensive language on the man and his dwindling supporters does you no good as well, the tongue and what it emits is potent so also it reactionary consequences.

          • Maria

            If you dont abuse me, I dont abuse you.

          • AncientFactfinder7

            And that is very Christian

          • Maria

            You be the judge.

          • AncientFactfinder7

            I rather say the truth

          • Binta (nee osinbajo)

            God bless u sir/ma’am!
            Some of us have taken note of the people who use vile comments here. While calling themselves ‘well groomed Christians’. I wuldv laffed..but it is really a sad issue. All I see are millions of religious Nigerians..but very few Godly ones. Christ is no more the standard..the standard has become each man/womans idea of how a christian shld live.
            This is where the root problem of Naija lies..not necessarily with GEJ(who has performed woefully in terms of corruption) ..but with we Nigerians ourselves. We shout change change, how many of these same Naijas are living right and change agents in their little corner?

          • AncientFactfinder7

            Binta you have said it all,I wish I could give you a handshake straightaway.Christianity is now defined on personal terms.From my side of the world it is described as bad thing that is funny.

        • Jika

          Why do you have such a morbid hatred for Muslims?Even when Maria insisted that she is Christian you are still hell bend on giving her an Islamic toga?By the way,what has the issue in contention here got to do with religion?Please spread love not hate.

          • Chris1408

            Because he’s just as dump as his pay master GEJ, probably worse

          • Gideon Orkar

            it is spelt “dumb” you get certipicate?

          • Gideon Orkar

            I am opposed to Sharia and that thing called Maria epitomises Sharia!!

          • Omo

            There’s certain ppl u don’t reply, when they write just read and keep quite, for instance I don’t even bother reading any of FFK’s and Okupe’s statements so that way it’s just in d air…..

      • MC

        Why do you have such a nasty penchant for referering to people’s mother. Didn’t you get training in morals and some African values!!!??? Do(did) you respect your mother?

        • Gideon Orkar

          Leave me and the thing called Maria. “IT” has bitten more than it can chew!!

    • Chris1408

      Yes, we’ll finish what Abacha started, by hanging this Otuoke thief and drunkard

      • Gideon Orkar

        after we kill OBJ!

    • Nostory

      And you will all die before him like Abacha

  • Republican in VI

    OBJ a true Nationalist and Nigerian to the core, thoroughly deserving of the title GCFR.

  • israel amulum

    You can’t make yourself a statesman,other people should.Anyway let me tell you who you are,you are a maladjusted child living in an adult body,you suffer from entitlement complex,much more you gave a destructive aura,you suffer from multiple personality disorder, and schizophrenia.You are coward showing signs of pseudo intrepidity.sir please retire from the human race,you are a high octane liability.

    • Maitama Tambari

      Israel Amulum or whatever your name is, people have already made President Obasanjo a Stateman, I believe before you were born. He was a Stateman when he led the team that brought down Apartheid South Africa. What more criteria do you want to know a Stateman when Preasident Obansajo contested to the chair of Secretary General of the United Nation. President Obasanjo was Head of State, Commander in Chief, Nigeria Armed Forces, before you were born. President Obasanjo became a two termed President, Commander in Chief, Nigeria Armed Forces, for the second time. People made him. CHANGE! YES WE CAN.

    • Republican in VI

      Obasanjo has been a statesman for decades since the late 70s and has been one of the people that act as the nations conscience at critical times like these, he is far from a coward he fought in the civil war his children are fighting boko haram he is not the kind of person like many nigerians that take the road of least resistance and just accept anything otherwise at his age he would be just resting and sleeping all day in his farm he is no coward.

    • Tanwa Bello

      My dear father General Obasanjo,

      Your attitude is a reflection of the country. It is not certain which came first –
      your attitude seeping into the country’s psyche, or, the country accepting
      your irresponsible behaviour for so long.

      For you to accuse someone else of what you so obviously practised yourself
      tells of your narcissistic, megalomaniac personality. I don’t blame you for the
      many atrocities you have been able to get away with. Nigerians were your enablers
      every step of the way.

      You and your cronies that you mentioned in your letter to President Jonathan have left
      the country worse than you met it at your births in the 1930’s and 1940’s. Nigeria is not
      the creation of any of you, though you feel you own it and you are “Mr Nigeria” – deciding
      whether the country stays together or not. This is the end of my communication with you
      for life. I pray Nigeria survives your continual intervention in its affairs.

      …………Iyabo Obasanjo

  • GEJ FOREVER

    ACUTE SIGNS OF MENTAL DISORDER

    I have followed Obasanjo’s actions and utterances in the past months and I am convinced that Obasanjo is manifesting clear signs of acute mental disorder.

    It appears that nemesis have finally caught up with him and all the evils he has done have vowed to bring him to utter public disgrace.

    • Pere

      “Some people call themselves statesmen but they are NOT statesmen
      They are just ordinary politicians. For you to be a statesman it is not
      because you have occupied a big office before but the question is:
      what are you bringing to bear?

      Are you building this country or are you a part of the people who tell lies to
      destroy this country, to create enmity and make people who ordinarily would
      have been living together, fight themselves?

      Are you planning to set the country ablaze because you did not get
      that particular thing you want? Hiding under some big names and creating
      a lot of problems in this country, making provocative statements in this country
      – statements that will set this country ablaze – and you tell me you are a senior citizen.

      You are NOT a senior citizen; you can never be. You are an ordinary motor park tout”.

      ………..President Goodluck Jonathan

      (January 7th, 2015)

    • Hassan

      No, no, no, not so fast. This show of resignation gives no immunity.
      Olusegun Obasanjo MUST be formally expelled from PDP without
      any further option to rejoin, so that history will be full and complete.

  • The Poet

    Nigeria’s Humpty-Dumpty has a great fall

    Joy filled the land, and the people rejoice, as if a pestilence is is got rid of.
    A crass fellow goes a sorrowing all alone for failing to live up to the creed.
    His abettors, now without their epaulettes, bow their heads down in contrition.
    As a misfit without much schooling is defenestrated from the decisional villa.
    But he jumped before he was pushed to carry his corrupt influenza to his abode.

    Now, the nation is free from a charlatan who’s self-described as “statesman” –
    a title he gave to himself without having sensible political thought for posterity.
    The rest of the world now feels relieved to be rid of an anopheles on the scrotum.
    As Nigeria’s Humpty-Dumpty has a great fall, but the nation does not grieve but hiss.
    Goodbye, Nigeria’s crass man, may your type not come back again, forever, again!

  • Otile

    Egypt says it has bombed Islamic State targets in Libya, hours after video emerged showing the apparent beheading of 21 Egyptian Christians.

    Islam is a religion of peace. They know that weak Christians do not fight back. When they finish beheading and maltreating Christians peace and tranquility takes over. Imam Buhari is right, sharia must be applied to every state of the federation.

    Obasanjo is an ingrate. Look at this ugly Old man who was rescued from the prison and made a President, in his time he made corruption an institution that his successors are finding it difficult to collapse. Even from grass to grace he did not do anything for the Nigerian People

    This same man ran his administration with sheer impunity and disregards for human plight. This is a man who has no fear of God and regards for his family.

    • Olu

      After all, he made your favorite, Jonathan, the president. Without the ugly Obasanjo, there won’t be handsome president Jonathan. Think before you make comment.

  • SAM .A

    It is only the fools & retarded that will jubilate over Pa Obasanjo’s exit from PDP, here was a man 6 of their high ranking governors were on their belly begging for support 2 months ago. President himself was with Bishop Oyedepo& Pastor Enoch in Otta Hill top with this same enigma trying to straighten things. The end of the road for this association . Let us watch how it will turn out,as Pa Obasanjo stated he will be a stateman.

    • blueeyedkitten

      after calling him a motor park tout, you still went begging for his help?

  • ayozie lauretta

    OBJ SHOULD GO AND SIT DOWN. WHAT IS HE RUNNING ABOUT FOR AT HIS AGE AND CALIBER? I SUGGEST MEDICAL ATTENTION OR SPIRITUAL CLEANSING, BECAUSE IN OUR LOCAL PARLANCE ANYBODY THE GODS WANT TO KILL THEY FIRST MAKE MAD…..
    THE WHOLE THINGS SHOULD NOT DETER THE PDP AND MY DEAR PRESIDENT.

  • ayozie lauretta

    IF HE GOES TO THE APC HE WILL BE VERY IRRELEVANT THERE.

  • Maria

    Finally, Nigeria will be delivered… the orchestrators of our suffering are falling apart… Hallelujah!

  • Garden-City Boy

    Those whom the gods wish to destroy they first make mad. Due to his incurable arrogance, this old clown ignored warnings that he had already dug himself into a cesspit. But he would not stop digging. He danced and danced and danced even after the the drummers had stopped playing the tune. He would not realize that the cheering had turned to jeering and that he was making a dancing jackass of himself.
    Can we, them, turn the page. When is this murderer going to the Hague?

    • blueeyedkitten

      are you talking of obj or gej? because this description suits both of them.

  • dd

    The way Obasanjo is pooling the news, it is as if he is the one running for election. Everyday I keep hearing Obasanjo, Jonathan, Buhari.

  • MC

    Well, various lessons learnt from OBJ’s shows of shame; it has usually been if you can’t beat them, join them. OBJ, we’ll remember you for leaving when you couldn’t succeed in foisting yourself on Nigeria anymore. We’ll also remember the lives that were snuffed out during your tenure: Odi and zakibiam massacres, Harry Marshal, Funsho Williams, Bola Ige etc. It’s an irony that with your current claim of mastery of all things about Nigeria, you have yet to name the killers of these great politicians in your time. Sir, political assassinations ended when you left power! People must hate you so much, or is it really that you deserve these bumper harvest of hatreds? Seems the latter otherwise your wife, your son and even your daughter wouldn’t have reported to the world of your nefarious attitudes ranging from incest, adultery, negligence and sheer wickedness to your very own blood!? Politicians of your generation hasn’t really been helpful to Nigeria. You Obasanjo have been opportuned to ruling Nigeria for 3 times and yet nothing to show the posterity. Goodluck’s sin is his refusal to listen to you especially on the decades-old collective script to keep the Igbos in perpetual underdevelopment. Dear Nigeria, may the curse upon you never get lifted except the Israelites of this country is recognised and invited to assist.

    • blueeyedkitten

      please just speak for yourself. we’ll remember who?

    I think its childish of him to tore is membership card, if for anything; he have been the most beneficial of that party, the leave the party respectfully and quietly rather making mockery of himself by toring his card. I dislike such altitude, no matter what the differences are, Baba is Baba but when he begins to behave like my 10yrs old daughter then he lost the respect most Nigerians have for him. I rest my case and wish him luck as an Elder Statesman.

    You do not pronounce yourself a statesman, it is the society that does. Another statement from a confused and frustrated person. The membership remains the property of PDP but you allowed your thug to tear it to pieces. Another act of a moto park tout. All along you wore PDP agbada in the ship of APC and making shakara for PDP. Now that PDP decided to take their agbada from you, you prompt jumped ship.

      pls James are u saying OBJ is not corrupt? cos even Nigerians know he is a corrupt leader and did nothing during his time as the president of the country just give you a few reminder. remember 3rd term agenda, remember killing of prominent Nigerian, outrageous library at Ogun state, impeachment of governors with few members of house of representative, 5omillion bribe giving to National Assembly for 3rd term agenda and selective corruption indictment also he privatize government properties, he is the riches former president in Nigeria today, how did he get his money. remember statement of General Danjuma that if NNPC of OBJ time is probe OBJ will go back to prison again as far as i am concern he is NOT WORTHY TO BE CALLED A STATE MAN

        IYABO OBASANJO EVEN CRITICIZE HIM THAT HE WAS NOT BETTER THAN JONATHAN

      • Lemmuel Odjay

        They said he left 40-something billion dollars in the kitty for Yar Adua and Jonathan, and he midwifed the era of telephone networks, one of which you are using to chat today, before he left. What about that? You people should always understand that there are two ways to everything in life. These are positives and negatives, and they complement each other. One without the other would result in failure. Don’t abuse someone directly, whose views are not same as yours. Abuse their views AND SHOW to all why those policies are WRONG. Ours has become a fault like Boko Haram’s, who want to force their views on the rest of us and have us killed should we refuse to adopt their ways. If, therefore, we suffer from the same defects, what moral rights have we to criticise Boko Haram, for example? Going by our attitude, we cannot compete with the world because they want reason, not conjecture or plain abuse of the messenger, while leaving the message to walk away. Is our society still at a very early stage of development or something? I wonder…

    • burning spear

      yes that is Nigeria for u–when buhari forged his certificate–by presenting us with a fake statement of result–Nigerians clapped for him–boko haram will murder Nigerians and the same Nigerians will turn around and commend them–obj is calling on the army to overthrow the government and the night soil men in APC are here jubilating—for a man who has nothing morally to pass on to the next generation–may be-sleeping with your sons wife is an acceptable part of yoruba culture –who knows

    • Olu

      Obj was not a political thug when he did all he could to make the clueless Jonathan transit from being a vice president to becoming a president. It is only in this part of the world that it is unpatriotic to go against the president on issues and ideology. Being a member of party does not mean one should support the anti people policies of such party or any of their elected officers. If a little child no how to wash his hands he will eat with elders. Jonathan need more training. I am never surprise for people supporting Jonathan, it is in their character, they will support even goat to stay put in office as a result of their greediness and unnecessary sentiments.

      all over Nigeria. God willing, we will NOT stop the agitation for total implementation
      of the Sharia in the country. It is a legal responsibility which God has given us,
      within the context of one Nigeria, to continue to uphold the practice of Sharia,
      wholeheartedly. What remains for Muslims in Nigeria is for them to re-double
      their efforts and educate Muslims on the need to promote

    Editor Premium Times,

    Obasanjo will go down in history as almost an ignoramus. Nobody with average intellect follows his ways.
    An Islamic State is today’s global scourge. No worthy politician will ask his countrymen to embrace Islamism
    But General Obasanjo’s low understanding made it impossible for him to read the tea leaves on Islamism.
    He just jumped on the wrong side of history. The rest of the world ignored his rants to re-define Islamism.
    Obasanjo drank his Hemlock today rather than be further publicly disgraced for not thinking a Jihad through.

    • 1MASK01

      If you are still thinking that someone can islamise Nigeria, then you are also lacking in intellect.

      • Ugo2

        “Muhamadu Buhari had clearly and unequivocally stated in public that he was committed
        to implementing Sharia law all over the country (Nigeria). Buhari’s background as a former
        member of the military, reared in the regimented tradition of giving of orders and unquestioning
        obedience of such orders as well as his antecedent as former head of the federal military
        government inclines and acclimatizes him to absolutism and autocracy with the danger it poses
        to the emergence of a constitutional dictatorship if elected. We are fully aware that Jonathan’s
        Administration has not seriously addressed the core promises and commitments made to Ndigbo
        during the 2011 election campaign. Inspite of this, it’s in the best interest of our people that
        he be re-elected.”

    OBJ is the shameless man the world has ever witnessed. How ungrateful he is to the party that restored him back to glory from pit of hell he was, after his mis-adventure in prison orchestrated by late Sani Abacha as a result of similar arrogance, holier than thou attitude, gross recklessness and strange behaviours absolutely inconsistent with the personality of a statesman which he wants the whole world to believe he is. Who was he impressing by tearing his card? Yorubas that he mercilessly dealt with for 8 years that his presidency lasted? Or Nigerians that he wanted to ingloriously ruled for another 4 years through constitution amendment if not for the bravery of Alhaji Atiku Abubakar and firmness/steadfastness of the national assembly? He tore his card because he’s aware that no other party would accommodate his excesses. I think PDP have been thoroughly lenient on him. They can now easily go ahead and expel him formally through his ward in Owu Kingdom. Good riddance to bad rubbish!

  • Chally Boy

    He wil be disgrace by d creator, Obj thinks he owns dis country. Goodluck nd PDP dnt nid him to succeed.

  • Wise Head

    The situation presented by the Buhari/Tinubu alliance (tagging along SouthWest/NorthWest) is similar to what happened during the Islamic Jihad. Let people go and read how Alimi came in his beguiling manner, tricked the people of Ilorin and then struck like a viper! What happened later on was history, for Ilorin became an emirate that has succeeded till this day. Those who have ears to listen must listen. Anybody who supports Buhari on the expectation that Buhari might not last the time because of his age should have another think coming. Anybody who thinks Buhari would eventually hand over to Osinbajo is on the slippery path of self-delusion. Even if Buhari should become incapacitated for any reason; even if Buhari should decline to run for a second term, in which case Osinbanjo would be put in place is on the thorny path of a hallucination. The Hausa/Fulani, on getting power via Buhari, would never give it up again for whatever reason. The Hausa/Fulani have learned their lesson in the Yar’Adua/Jonathan issue and would never allow such mistake to happen again.

    The people of the South-West might think they are smart by propping up Buhari with a view to getting the presidency back via Osinbajo. But it is time the people of the South-West got to realize that they can never outwit the Hausa/Fulani when it came to politics. The Hausa/Fulani are masters of the game; that I’m sure of. And the Hausa/Fulani are already reading the political chessboard. At least the Hausa/Fulani know that in the PDP they would be sure of the presidency in 2019. So, if they see any weakness in Buhari for any reason they would vote massively for Jonathan to hold the forth for them till 2019. People must learn to read the political chessboard like the Northerners; they are adept at that.

  • Lemmuel Odjay

    … like you referring to Mike Tyson as a christian convert to Islam, and me asking whether he was ever a christian in the first place? Was Obasanjo a member of the PDP during the past one or two years? The spirit had left the body long before now, so what’s all the hullabaloo about? Old news joor…

  • Garden-City Boy

    Those whom the gods wish to destroy they first make mad.This old megalomaniac turned circus clown ignored warnings that he had already dug himself into a cesspit. But he wouldn’t stop digging. Crass arrogance and congenital obsession for the spotlight beclouded his dimming, senile judgment. He kept dancing even after the drummers had stopped playing the tune. He would not realize that the cheering had turned to jeering, or that he was making a dancing jackass of himself.
    We can then turn the page of history into which Obasanjo has now confined himself. Soon and very soon, he will realize that defeat is an orphan, and that it is cold out there without a base. The APC-JANJAWEED is too circumspect with picking on a carcass left over by PDP. They know about the myth of TROJAN HORSE, and the GREEK GIFT…….not with all the tons of baggage and political liability Obasanjo brings with him. The APC-JANJAWEED hierarchy is ever so conscious of Obasanjo’s over-controlling mentality and, therefore wary of his manipulative obsession for dominance. They would rather have him remain a PDP mole than a full-time “NAVIGATOR”.
    In his blind delusion, Obasanjo thinks there is a niche for him as a “STATESMAN”. He sees the title of “STATESMAN” as a kind of oil bloc they can arbitrarily allocate to themselves. He fails to realize that “Statesmanship” is earned through selfless, humble service to country and commitment to the common cause, not by allocation for the appeasement or ingratiation of old, grumpy, overgrown crybabies who are chronically insatiable. The title of “Statesman” cannot be the reward for braggadocios, infantile tantrum-throwing.
    Statesmen do not exterminate wholecommunities and citizens they swore to an oath to protect in an insane zealotry to showcase raw power and authority. They don’t order the murder of political foes. They conduct themselves in ways consonant with the norms of society, not go incestuous. A man who is hated, abhorred cannot qualify for a “statesman” anointing. Obasanjo may be feared, but never respected or loved. His perfidious character makes him absolutely unworthy of the claim he makes for himself, nether can he extract same from a people he let down, stabbed in the back and left to lick their wounds; or after his audacious plunder of the treasury. Statesmen do not engage in public incitement and subterranean subterfuge. His post-leadership conduct has been overtly characterized by vindictive witch-hunting and grudge confrontation
    of constituted authority. The Obasanjo disaster peaked with his senseless extermination of the sleepy communities of ODI and ZAKI BIAM. Only the Obasanjo should expect survivors of his carnage to love and respect and thank him very much for what he did to them. So, for his self-inflicted injury, what Obasanjo sees is what he gets. We can’t wait for Obasanjo to be shipped to The Hague?

    Nigeria’s Humpty-Dumpty has a great fall

    Joy filled the land, and the people rejoice, as if a pestilence is is got rid of.
    A crass fellow goes a sorrowing all alone for failing to live up to the creed.
    His abettors, now without their epaulettes, bow their heads down in contrition.
    As a misfit without much schooling is defenestrated from the decisional villa.
    But he jumped before he was pushed to carry his corrupt influenza to his abode.

    Now, the nation is free from a charlatan who’s self-described as “statesman” –
    a title he gave to himself without having sensible political thought for posterity.
    The rest of the world now feels relieved to be rid of an anopheles on the scrotum.
    As Nigeria’s Humpty-Dumpty has a great fall, but the nation does not grieve but hiss.

        I am a citizen of Nigeria. My constitutional right to freedom of expression is always there, intact.
        I am saying that nobody running for public office should allow a debate on his credentials.

        No aspiring president should ever go into hiding over a debate on his school credentials
        It does not augur well that Buhari is keeping quiet on whether he ever obtained school cert.

        Yoruba people like Bola Tinubu and Tunji Abayomi are the two main people talking for Buhari
        John Oyegun too is talking for Buhari too but none of these three people shows any document.

His life can’t be worth more than that 81yrd old man who was bombed to death in Odi town on his orders. Unfortunately, this is our Nigeria of 21st century where some crooks have sat down somewhere to decide that Nigeria must be run by a President with strong military ties either as an ex-military officer or a relative of an ex-military past president and MUST be of Northern extraction or from the West. Goodluck Jonathan has rendered that useless equation impotent. Yes! Impotent!

    But the strange axiom remains relevant only to crooks who believe that Nigeria belongs to only 2 tribes –tribes which believe must control power to remain relevant bcos they have no resources on their land. The tragedy of the whole story is that a Dung-anjo who should be in prison for genocide, corruption and the many assassinations under his regime, is now the one speaking rrrrrrubish. We pray that God should grant our prayers and fast track a break up of Nigeria.

          “Some people call themselves statesmen but they are NOT statesmen.
          They are just ordinary politicians. For you to be a statesman it is not
          because you have occupied a big office before but the question
          is: what are you bringing to bear?

          Are you building this country or are you a part of the people who tell lies
          to destroy this country, to create enmity and make people who ordinarily
          would have been living together, fight themselves?

          Are you planning to set the country ablaze because you did not get
          that particular thing you want? Hiding under some big names and
          creating a lot of problems in this country, making provocative statements
          in this country – statements that will set this country ablaze –
          and you tell me you are a senior citizen. You are NOT a senior citizen;
          you can never be. You are an ordinary motor park tout”.

  • Comfortkay

    Many international journalist wishes to speak to Baba about the party he help build up and the forth coming election.
    All those who are making nose about OBJ will still go back and beg him and having said that there is too much bitterness and Indiscipline in Nigeria Politics.
    This our President is a disaster for Naija l cant wait fot APC to move Nigeria out of this mess.

    • emmanuel

      Obasanjo the biggest rogue in Nigeria politics.

      The hungry ward members who came to confer with him always betrayed him by ensuring they voted all the time against the PDP from 1999 to date because of the evil nature and callousness of the baboon.

      Obasanjo amended PDP constitution in 2005 to enable him become life BOT chair, but Jonathan eased him out.

      The man who want to rule Nigeria throughout his life time has been retired from politics by Jonathan.

      • Comfortkay

        OBJ is still greater than GEJ

        • emmanuel

          He should have killed you along with those politicians while he was in office.

          PHCN, Rail, Benin Sagamu, Lagos Ibadan, Lokoja Abuja, ghost workers, fertiliser, online form M to check dity and tax under payment, airports, education budget, no fuel queue is six uears except during strikes, freedom to talk and even insult the president without harassment (Tinubu’s men used to trail us for online comments online until it dawn on them that GEJ never hounded anyone for insulting him and that was when threat phine calls and trailings stopped) – that is freedom of speech to all Nigerians.

          Comfortkay, name what made Obasanjo great. For your information, I was account officer in a bank to NCC in the days when Abacha died and when Obasanjo took over. Abacha had concluded everything about GSM before he died. The delay he had flagging it off was on the proposed tariff which he said were going to be too high for Nigerians

          So do not even tell me about GSM

  • Umar Dendi

    Thank you! Baba Obasanjo!

  • Alcindo Satori

    I believe Iyabo Obasanjo deserves a ministerial position! Dang, her assessment of the APC baboon was precise!

  • emmanuel

    Those who vall Obasanjo a statesman should ask him who killed Bola Ige, Okadigbo, Harry Marshal, Dekibo, Daramola (Ekiti) etc.

    Ask him why he instituted ballot snatching, substitution of candidates, bribing National Assembly at the slightest opportunity, instituted constituency project funds as cash disbursement or part of NASS membership emoluments,

    Same man budgeted so much for Railway and stole everything, stole all NNPC turnaround mentainace funds, ensured all sucrity budgets were stolen and not even a single riffle bought, slashed education budget all through, stole $16 billion meant for NIPP.

    The list of Obasanjos ills is endless, yet some desperate people want Nigerians to believe that Obasanjo should not be in prison.

    Abacha notoriety never allowed Nigerians truly ask why he sentenced Obasanjo to death. Same game he is playing today trying to topple Jonathan.

  • Okey

    I saw Obasanjo caricaturing himself whilst his agent tore his PDP card and what baffled me was that everybody in that arena where we watched that show of shame on television wondered and regretted that such a character ever became the President of Nigeria.

    Meanwhile, on the exchange rate of the Naira, it is only a person that surrenders himself to deceit that will accept from Obasanjo Naira depreciation was caused by Jonathan. Nigeria is a mono-product (crude oil) economy.It naturally and mandatory follows that if the crude oil price goes up the Naira value will appreciate, if it goes down the Naira will depreciate. Obasanjo throughout his 8 years in office never did anything to diversify our economy. It is plain mischief to incite Nigerians against Jonathan for the fallen world oil market.

    I refuse to be convinced by Obasanjo that the thing that brought him, Obasanjo, Atiku, Buhari and Tinubu – totally strange bedfellows – together against Jonathan, is in the best interest of Nigeria.

  • Obasanjo remains the greatest asset of the PDP till date. All
    GEJ had been doing within the last six years have been embellishments of all
    what Obasanjo administration started while in collaboration with Diezani, who
    has appointed and sacked 5NNPC MD’s in 5years, concentrated on depleting the treasury
    through income diversion and crude oil sales. Given their occupation of the
    National till, they allowed their PDP goons a widespread space for internal
    corruption and looting.

    OBJ’s PDP gave Nigeria GSM and brought telephone for the poor that was
    previously for the rich according to David Mark in the early 90s, OBJ
    structured the payment of our national debts in excess of $45billion from the
    little average crude Oil prices of less than $80 per barrel, even when crude
    prices fell to $9.00 per barrel during the OBJ’s administration, our exchange
    rate was not affected negatively, OBJ introduced EFCC, Improved Nigeria’s
    International image after the killing of Saro Wiwa, made fuel available without
    subsidy corruption, Started the commercialisation of Nepa to PHCN and paid 25%
    funds out of the fake $16billion scam through Dr Iweala which was now
    commissioned by GEJ as his project, started the Cassava for bread initiative
    and other agric projects and the reactivation of the Rails,created massive
    employment in banking communication, gas, oil manufacturing etc, gave Nigeria a
    vibrant middle class with improved banking with car leases and other structured
    products and the capital market prior to the global depression which was better
    managed by Professor Soludo,dealt with the Sharia riots with wisdom which
    eventually showed the foolishness of its Northern sponsors and many others.

    OBJ singularly supported GEJ to be President when the Northerners wanted to
    deprive him of the position while Chief Anenih and all the present PDP backers
    and GEJ himself ran for cover when the military brought Yaradua back in the
    NIGHT. OBJ single-handedly used his money to visit Saudi Arabia to see the
    incapacitated Yaradua and confronted the North and supported that Nigeria can
    only be one when individuals from every zone, could have access to the number
    one position in the land. OBJ’s fight with GEJ is due to the unpardonable
    looting by the GEJ group.

    We must give credit to GEJ for building and extending on OBJ’s programmes with
    the relative application of his education. This the Northern cabal wanted to
    work against, through the instigation of Yaradua to rubbish Baba OBJ’s
    programmes. GEJ did more with the Nigerianisation of the oil sector. Most of
    his partially successful programmes such as roads, bridges and health were by
    SureP which came about as a result of the subsidy riot. One is then tempted to
    ask the Ministers, what their yearly budgets were expended upon and Diezani
    about the 3 refineries she promised will be on stream in three years. Stealing
    and Corruption Incorporated while their is massive poverty and unemployment in
    the land, youth induced crime

    OBJ singularly went to meet the family of the late Boko Haram leader at the
    risk of his life and later advised GEJ, knowing fully well that GEJ’s failure
    will be ascribed to him. GEJ responded that he is not a General or King David
    when Baba warned him to deal decisively with Boko Haram, at their initial
    stages. Baba also talked about the official stealing of crude and the diversion
    of our national patrimony. GEJ and his cohorts came out to abuse the old man.
    Nigerians have now vindicated OBJ with the very terrible state of the
    Government finances with exchange rate as high as N213 to a US dollar from N155
    within 3 months.

    In one of our discussions with a Nigerian Brigadier General in New York, he
    postulated that the present military is different from the military of the 80s
    and 90s. The reason he gave is that the youthful soldiers are all on the
    internet and that when he sent one his junior orderlies to sensitise on their
    refusal to confront Boko Haram. The Orderly was told that the Soldier boys were
    not ready to fight for a country with such official leadership stealing and
    looting.

    In sum, GEJ’s second term would have been a cup of tea had GEJ capitalised on
    his Goodwill by working genuinely for the Nigerian people. A million OBJ’s
    would not have been able to stop him for a second term. GEJ has a right to
    change his mind if he had performed and not looted.

    The APC is a not better in terms of corruption because corruption is corruption
    whatever the guise since they say theirs was restricted to percentages on
    projects. Tinubu’s is more scientific as he does contracts with his Governments
    and also earns professional fees on his tax services. This is however much
    better than stealing from the National income like our Ogas at the TOP.

    The APC heard the yearnings of the masses and was smart enough and discovered
    that the only way to reach Nigerians was to look for that hard incorruptible
    Nigerian in the person of a Buhari to save the nation. Buhari is like a Tiger
    when corruption is involved because he could end up eating any of his riders.
    Even OBJ acknowledged it to some people that he does not believe that Buhari
    would not arrest him if he should cross the corruption line. OBJ tore his card
    to remove the PDP leprosy mark on his body.PDP is therefore finished even GEJ
    knows it himself.

    In sum, when Nigeria had Global problems in 1999, a General in the person of
    OBJ was brought out from prison to rescue Nigeria. Nigeria today is on the
    brink and Nigeria needs an incorruptible General before corruption kills the
    nation and the exchange rate rises top N1,000 to one US dollar. Had Idiagbon
    being alive today, there would have been no Buhari.

    “No saviors”, “Disaffection with the status quo”, “Ordinary citizen”? This lady quit her brilliant column in LeadershipNg and plunged into partisan politics, decamped from PDP and joined her former lecturer in the then opposition who is now the VP and yet…….buyer’s remorse, pissed off or neglected when the spoils were divided?
