Obasanjo denies snubbing Jonathan, Shagari, other ex-Presidents

Obasanjop and Shagari at the latter's 90th birthday in Sokoto

Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has denied media reports that he deliberately arrived late at the birthday celebration of former President Shehu Shagari, after the departure of other past leaders and President Goodluck Jonathan.

President Shagari’s 90th birthday was marked with an unusual fanfare Wednesday with President Jonathan and all former Nigerian leaders, except Muhammadu Buhari, in attendance.

Mr. Obasanjo arrived only after his colleagues had left after the cutting of the birthday cake, fuelling media speculation he deliberately delayed the trip to avoid a meeting with Mr. Jonathan, who has faced a barrage of criticisms from him ahead of elections in March.

But the former president denied snubbing the president and other past leaders, saying he had no cause to backtrack on what they all agreed to do together in Mr. Shagari’s honour.

Mr. Obasanjo said it was “unfortunate” he arrived President Shagari’s home Sokoto late, and blamed a traffic gridlock in Lagos for the delay.

“I have read with dismay the imputation of some section of the media to the unfortunate incident of my not being able to be with my colleagues at the birthday celebration of President Shehu Shagari on Monday 25 February,” Mr. Obasanjo said in a statement Friday.

“Leaving Abeokuta at 6:45am and hoping to fly out of Lagos airport at 8:30am, to Sokoto, we ran into a very bad traffic hold-up that made me get to Lagos airport at 10:45am.”

Mr. Obasanjo accused the media of failing to report his apologies to Mr. Shagari during the visit.

“I did not arrive at Shagari’s house until about mid-day by which time the team of my colleagues had left. It is a pity that the media did not report my profuse apologies to both Shagari and other colleagues when I spoke at Shagari’s house.

“I had no cause to dodge, avoid or snub my colleagues for what we all agreed to do together,” he said.

  • Anikulapo

    This is why Nigeria is like this: bad planning. Obasanjo shows that again.
    He lives in Abeokuta where there is no airport and plans to go to Sokoto.
    Would a prudent man not leave for Lagos a day before to be on time?
    This Obasanjo is not it, he is like pariah man. I beg, second base o jare!

  • Shehu Monguno

    OBJ always has excuses for everything

    • abubakar

      Just as Goodluck Jonathan wasted the time of Nigerians for six years!

      • Shehu Monguno

        Abubakar, I don’t think GEJ is relevant in this discussion. General Gowon who was General Obasanjo’s C-I-C flew in from Jos, General Babangida and General Abdulsalam both flew in from Minna and the President from Abuja yet General Obasanjo is the only one that gave excuse. Abubakar, maybe we can go further by leaving the oil resources which comes from President Jonathan’s backyard alone for the owners. After all we did not share out tin and groundnut money with them

        • abubakar

          Just reminding us of the truth that Mr. Goodluck Jonathan wasted the time of Nigerians for six years. It seems you are allergic to such reminder!

          • Shehu Monguno

            What of all our leaders who came from Northern Nigeria and whose states added no value. Did they not live the country worse off. We do not have a moral right ooo

          • abubakar

            It seems you are struggling to make Nigerians forget that your candidate in this election-Mr. Jonathan is a symbol of six year waste to Nigerians. I can see you are sweating to make us forget that. But sorry ooo, we will not forget.

          • Shehu Monguno

            True, but can we deny the fact that leaders of Northern extract were we both came from left 40years of waste? you don’t have to deviate from the original topic which is Chief Obasanjo

          • abubakar

            False “Shehu”, you are still struggling on behalf of your candidate-Goodluck Jonathan! But we Nigerians cannot forget that your candidate in this election -Goodluck Jonathan-is a waste!

          • Shehu Monguno

            Abubakar, it is obvious that you are new to this discussion forum because if you are not you will see my post earlier today where I compared GMB acceptance of responsibility and apology after 30 years to GEJ refusal to visit Maiduguri until elections were at hand. I have been commenting since 2010 and have been attacked severally on this site for comments very critical of President Jonathan. Please stop hiding under pro and anti Jonathan camps to pass comments. Some of us criticise them both ways when it is necessary . The issue still is chief Obasanjo. Do not deviate

          • abubakar

            False “Shehu” , Nigerians do not have amnesia like you. Looking towards March 28 elections, we know that President Jonathan, your darling candidate is the symbol of Six year waste in the lives of Nigerians.

          • Shehu Monguno

            President Jonathan is my favorite candidate now my comment seem to be harsh on GMB. When I criticize GEJ I am tagged a Northern bigot. When will we grow up

          • babayin

            @Shehu Monguno, you are myopic to say someone is new to the forum. Will everybody join thesame time? There is always a first time for everything. For your info, quite a lot of people read comments in many forums and dont bother to contribute. So when such people decide to be part of the discourse you label them new comers. Please note that is not everybody that is jobless like you.

        • Kay Soyemi (Esq.)

          Mr. Monguno, why not state the whole truth all the time?

          Jonothing has never been relevant in any discussion outside of corruption, incompetence, uselessness etc etc!

          • Tunsj

            You got that right. Shehu Monguno is afraid of the truth.

          • Shehu Monguno

            Kay Soyemi, since speaking the truth is your natural past time, please tell us how GEJ corruption, incompetence and uselesness made General Obasanjo come late for the birthday party. Were General Gowon, Babangida and Abdulsalam not also affected by the above bearing in mind General Obasanjo has been linked to Haliburton, National ID card, National stadium corruption scandals to mention a few

          • Kay Soyemi (Esq.)

            You forgot to stick Abacha into the equation, bruv.

            Having stated that, how many if the others sat on their fingers and watched rag tag militia men kill Nigerians in their thousands and plant their obnoxious flags on Nigerian territory?

            Just tell me why Jonothing is not in a class of his own on this matter?

      • BlackieUmukoro

            You mean Mr. Jonathan is a symbol and producer of waste and he did it for six years? Hm hm hm Ijaw man, you have now agreed with all Nigerians that your candidate-Goodluck Jonathan should be sent to Otuoke with our votes to continue to produce his waste in Otuoke. We, Nigerians no longer want waste producer as President for Goodluck Jonathan is the great historic producer of waste!.

            Flush , hm hm you mean flush Shehu Shagari too who you just hypocritically visited, on the surface to “cut Cake” because you are desperatey in search of votes and you want to “look” patriotic- eh Ijaw man Goodluck Jonathan?

      Why cry more than the bereaved? I have not read anywhere else that the celebrant or his felow ex-presidents haven’t accepted his apology for arriving late !

  • BlackieUmukoro

    But that is what you have just done. You dodged, avoided and snubbed the other past leaders. It is no coincidence too that buhari choosed to be in London at that particular time too. Come to think of it this is the only tome Buhari even wished Shagari birthday greetings. That it is coming after 39 years is quite instructive as it is because of election matters

    • Olufemi Aboaba

      Just a reminder that your candidate Goodluck Jonathan WASTED the time of Nigerians for SIX YEARS. We all love birthday cakes and the cutting of birthday cakes, but the six year waste your candidate-Godluck Jonathan represents is most crucial to Nigerians. Finally, more importantly, why did your candidate-Goodluck Jonathan- suddenly wake up to pretend to be a Nigerian president? He-Jonathan-has always seen himself as Ijaw President. You think we will forget your slogan and the slogan of your president on this platform? That historic slogan is OTHER NIGERIANS ARE LAZY, ESPECIALLY THE NORTH, WE IJAWS ARE THE ONLY INDUSTRIOUS ONES, ALL THEY WANT IS THE SWEET SMELLING OIL IN MY BACKYARD!!! Live with that. We will remind you of your past all the way to March 28 before we -who believe in one NIgeria send your candidate packing to Otuoke with our votes!

          I am just wondering too if the Abuja land your Ijaw president-Goodluck Jonathan- stole is also “SWEET OIL IN YA BACKYARD” !!!! I mean Is Abuja land stolen by your Ijaw President-Goodluck Jonathan- in your Ijaw backyard?

          • Olufemi Aboaba

            Thank you , you just confirmed with your own mouth that Mr. Goodluck Jonathan is an Ijaw President. He went desperately to Sokoto to pretend to be “nationalistic”-but the Ijaw man thinks every Nigerian is drunk with Ogoro on an hourly basis. But No, we have eyes , we can see. Mr. Goodluck Jonathan DOES NOT BELIEVE IN HIS SO-CALLED VISIT TO SHEHU SHAGARI IN SOKOTO. he went there to appear as if he is a “nationalist” which he is NOT. Goodluck Jonathan is Ijaw, and he is an Ijaw President and ONLY for the Ijaws who have OIL in there backyard!!!

            So when you Ijaw President went to Sokoto to cut Cake with Shehu Shagari-, when you went to the North you have abused as being too too lazy, as being dependent on the sweet oil in your backyard, you are only being hypocritical. You cannot abuse a whole people yesterday, and still pretend you love them today just because today you are looking for their votes!!! Arent the Shehu Shagari people, the Northerners the same people you abused yesterday Mr. Jonathan? Ijaw President Jonathan , you do not believe in Nigeria, STOP your deception just because you need votes! You cannot deceive anyone outside your Ijaw enclave.

  • JibrilMusagroup

    Cabal Obasanjo has left the political scene roaring away like a lion and tearing his cards with anger knowing that he has lost all opportunities of sucking Nigeria dry. Jonathan’s humble and quite attitude is actually his strength. He is dealing with the cabals that has been sucking the nation dry. They cry fight back shouting that Jonathan is corrupt, just like the way satan lied against God. Jonathan has achieved so much more than Obasanjo. So his corruption allegation are lies? President Goodluck is the best President in the history of Nigeria. #goodluck4president

Do the children posting comments here know what the monthly pension of an ex-president is? and 81% of them are from the North. Whether military of civilian, they earn the same pension and 13 of our 16 presidents so far are from the poor, uneducated, least developed North. But they say we should not count those who governed in the military era. My question to them is: Do the useless leaders of the military era collect different pensions as the civilian presidents? Nonsense. Nigeria will be better off wthout these ex presidents. U know what I mean. Dont you?

  • kola amzat

    God is God. Nobody dares to play His role otherwise…….. If Chief Obasanjo has elected to play God, its unfortunate. If there was a pact by the incumbent president and other 6 past Heads of Nigerian government to honour one of their colleagues during his 90th birthday celebration and 5 others, also out of their very busy schedules were diligent enough to keep the agreement and one was giving excuse of hold up in Lagos which has been a trade mark of Lagos roads over 20-30years, then something is amiss. God has resolved that Nigeria nation is a great country, no macabre dance from any individual can reverse that pronouncement of God. Nigeria unity is not negotiable and its an auspicious time our leaders start showing the way.

    • Olufemi Aboaba

      President Goodluck Jonathan recently wickedly placed advertisements in the newspapers through Ayo Fayose wishing Mr. Buhari dead. President Goodluck Jonathan recently sent Ayo Fayose after Mr. Buhari to London to spy on Buhari and after that President Jonathan LIED THROUGH AYO FAYOSE THAT Mr. Buhari IS IN A HOSPITAL IN THE UK. President Jonathan is the one that should stop playing god just because he has Ijaw oil money!

  • Peter

    My fellow Nigerians, all the nonsense talk about Buhari and his useless team being in London and speaking at Chatham House has been planned to ensure that he does not feature at Shagari’s birthday with the other former heads of state. The man is vindictive and knows the cold attention and the humiliation he would have received in the house of the civilian president that he ousted in a coup. You can see that Shagari’s shadow’s is chasing him about. A presidential candidate in an election that is about one month from now who should have been busy in the country re-branding his battered reputation, is busy telling lies, by washing Nigeria’s dirty linens in the white man’s land and thinking that he was undoing President Jonathan. Buhari and his new-found spoiler friend OBJ planned to avoid being at Shagari’s Birthday together with the other decent former heads of state. This is because they are evil as birds of identical plumage meet together.

  • Frank Bassey

  • Enumah

    This is the person who castigates his colleague in public, someone who’s aim is to cause political controversy. Now more than ever when he he had the chance to iron out issues with Mr President he chose to duck. OBJ is a coward. At least is a good thing he didn’t attend the main event so the cake won’t sour at the sight of his slacked wrinkles and offensive aged odor.

    I said it before and will say it again. Obasanjo is behaving like an animal and it is only Jonathan who is expert in animal behaviour will understand him.

  • Uncle Charlie

    There is nothing more disrespectful as showing up late for functions. Lets leave all the other excuses aside
