This Is What Obasanjo Told Buhari Yesterday In Abeokuta

The APC’s presidential candidate, his vice and
a whole team paid Obasanjo a courtesy visit
Yesterday as the team were in Ogun State for an
APC rally. Obasanjo who said he wasn’t sure if
Buhari was going to stop by or not, however
instructed his people to suspend every
engagement they have outside the state, in
case he decides to stop by. Obasanjo who
maintained he is still in PDP was delighted to
welcome Buhari into his home. His words;
“But let me in a special way welcome
Muhammadu. Our paths have
crossed on a number of occasions
and when I was told you are going to
be coming to Ogun State, I wasn’t
sure whether you will come here or
not. But I told my boys -I said well,
whatever programme we have
outside Ogun State for today, let us
shelve it just in case Muhammadu
and his party and his team decide to
call here.
“You will remember when you
decided to contest you wrote me a
letter this time around. And I replied
your letter. When you became the
flag bearer of your party, you wrote
me another letter. And I replied your
second letter because I believe that
you have honoured me by writing
and I should of course reciprocate by
also responding to your letter.
“I have always said that party or no party,
what is paramount for me is Nigeria. And that
will remain paramount as far as I am
concerned. There is no political party in the
world that is made up of saints and our own
political parties in Nigeria will be no
exception. All the political parties have saints
and devils among them. But because what
you are campaigning for is the votes of saints
and devils to be able to win an election, and I
wish you well.”
“I thought that I should say it today. I will
just beg all of you who are contesting to add
one to it; you mentioned economy, you
mentioned corruption, and you mentioned
security. All of you, I will beg of you, to add
infrastructure. It’s very important. You may
take it as part of economy but I will take
infrastructure as special and give it special
“For all political parties that are trying to woo
us to vote for them in the coming election;
let’s go away from red-herring, let’s go away
from trivialities, let’s face issues and tell the
people of this country what we will do to deal
with these crying problems of our country.
Having said that, I will also say that while a
party must be microcosm of a nation – and in
a nation you will have near saints, devils,
rapists, armed robbers and a good party
must have all this in them.
“But what matters is that when that party
has to go into government, it must look for
men and women of character. And we have
them in all parties; we have them throughout
the nooks and crannies of this country.
Again, I wish you well as you go around. I
thank you for this visit. I cannot end without
reminding you, even though I saw some old
faces, but some of us will remain firm at least
at the ward level where I am very active in
my party,” Mr Obasanjo said.
