Former President Goodluck Jonathan
According to him, any politician who ignores the elder statesman does so at his peril.
Jonathan said this while talking with Dele Momodu, distributer of Ovation Magazine, on the 2019 decision. The quick past president said the odds of previous Vice-President Atiku Abubakar were brilliant in the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, yet noticed that he would require the support of Obasanjo. Jonathan stated: “He (Atiku) can’t get the APC ticket. In the event that Atiku gets our gathering ticket, he would contend well. “He’s dependably an enthusiastic lawmaker. Yet, he would need to connect with our manager, Baba OBJ, the supervisor of all supervisors. “We’ve all learnt at various circumstances that you overlook OBJ at your danger. OBJ has the enchantment wand. He is regarded at home and abroad.” Obasanjo assumed a noteworthy part in the political profession of Jonathan. He had impacted Jonathan’s decision as the running mate generally President Umaru Musa Yar’Adua. Jonathan, who rose to the main position after the passing of Yar’Adua, dropped out with Obasanjo in 2013. Obasanjo composed an open letter to him. The circumstance deteriorated when the senior statesman declined to underwrite the re-decision offer of the Ijaw pioneer. He was disparaging of Jonathan amid the electioneering time frame, blaming him for plotting to win the decision by snare or criminal. Be that as it may, Jonathan let go back by making a hidden reference to Obasanjo. He said a few senior citizens were carrying on like engine stop touts. The two men accommodated in January when Jonathan paid an unexpected visit to Ibogun, the main residence of Obasanjo.
