Former President of Nigeria, Olusegun Obasanjo has reportedly declined to support the presidential ambition of the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, Alhaji Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
Former President Obasanjo made his stance known when the later paid him a courtesy visit at his Otta residence in Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital.
We had earlier reported that the APC presidential candidate met the former President today in Abeokuta, Ogun State.
The meeting, the report said, is part of Tinubu’s ongoing consultation and fence-mending process to actualise his presidential ambition.
According to sources close to Obasanjo, however, during the meeting he simply told the APC presidential candidate that he ought not to be in the race because of the poor performance of his party, the ruling APC.
Also, he stated that it is important to be fair to the South East for equity and all-inclusiveness to reign and asked his visitor to give the region a chance.
It could be recalled that in 2019, Tinubu had called on Nigerians to “dump Obasanjo in the dustbin” , adding that “Obasanjo is expired milk”.
He stated this during his speech at the Teslim Balogun Stadium in Lagos on Saturday, February 9, 2019, during the APC presidential campaign rally.
He also accused Obasanjo of being behind the greatest election rigging in the history of the country.
He had said: “Obasanjo is the greatest election rigger in this country.
“He’s an expired milk. Dump him in the dustbin. Forget Obasanjo.”
Reacting to the name-calling, former Aviation Minister, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode noted that Bola Ahmed Tinubu is an ugly and repugnant little creature who lives in and presides over the affairs of Lagos state.
He said that Tinubu comes from a long line of slave-dealers even though he is of questionable parentage, adding that “many claim that his real name is not Bola Ahmed Tinubu but rather Hameed Sangodele or Yekini Amoda Ogunlere or Bobo Chicago”
“Whatever his real name is or whatever anyone chooses to call him, at every available opportunity this creature insists on insulting President Olusegun Obasanjo and President Goodluck Jonathan accusing them of deceit, theft, incompetence, graft, corruption and all manner of atrocities.
“He claims to be holier and better than them yet the truth is that he is not fit to be used as toilet paper to clean their either of their rectums.
“He suffers from low self-esteem, he has no conscience and he will do anything or sell anybody for money and power.
“He is a traitor to the Yoruba, a traitor to the south, a traitor to the progressives and a traitor to the oppressed. He is the Judas of Nigeria, the first born of hell and the supreme leader of the accursed.
“He is a conflicted, compromised, corrupt, filthy, parasitic and sociopathic leech and a professional loafer that has sold his soul to Satan and that has traded his nation, his people, his heritage, his conscience and his honor to Beelzebub in return for a few choice morsels at Buhari’s table.
“The truth is that he is not fit to be Obasanjo’s or Jonathan’s houseboy let alone join issues with either of them or insult them in the way that he has been doing.,” Fani-Kayode added.
