NO PERMANENT ENEMIES OR FRIENDS IN POLITICS!!! Why Atiku Visits Obasanjo Revealed

Atiku  Sets To Re-unite With Obasanjo, A Heavy Blow To Buhari

The Peoples Democratic Party’s presidential candidate for 2019 elections, Atiku Abubakar, visited Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital along with the party PDP National Chairman, Prince Uche Secondus, and Senator Murray Ben-Bruce, among others.

Source close to  PDP  says the visit was aimed at signing a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) in a grand alliance with the former President ahead of the 2019 general elections.

IGBERE TV understands that Obasanjo says he is not backing Atiku’s bid for president because ‘he knows him too well’

Even before he gets a possible PDP nomination for 2019 presidential race, former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar’s bid has already hit some heavy bumps and storms.

His former boss, Olusegun Obasanjo said Atiku should never count on him to support his latest bid to actualise his life-long ambition of being elected the president of Nigeria.

IGBERE TV reports earlier how  Obasanjo swore he will never support Atiku and the doctor of theology also invoked God to buttress his position:“How can I be on the same side with Atiku?” Mr Obasanjo asked. “To do what?”

“If I support Atiku for anything, God will not forgive me. If I do not know, yes. But once I know, Atiku can never enjoy my support,” he added.

Obasanjo’s pronouncement comes barely two weeks after Mr Abubakar declared his intention to run for president and weeks after a photo-op between him and Obasanjo at an event on China Africa relations, organised by Gusau Institute in Abuja.

“I do not have personal grudges with anyone,” Mr Obasanjo said. “If you do not do well for Nigeria, you do not do well for all of us.”

“It is not a question of working with or not working with an individual,” he said. “If you are working for the good of Nigeria, I am working with you. If you are not working for the good of Nigeria it does not matter who you are I am not working with you.”

“Most of you do not understand the way I operate,” Mr Obasanjo said. “And I thought your own paper will understand better.”

“I know Atiku very well. And I have mentioned my position with Atiku. My position has not changed,” he said.

On a personal note, he added, “If my children are getting married, he has sent representatives. If his children are getting married, I have sent representatives. That is social. That is not political.

But “on political ground, my position has not changed. If I support Atiku for a political office other than the one I supported him in the past when I did not know him,” maybe, but not “now that I know him, God will not forgive me.”

NO PERMANENT ENEMY IN POLITICS

In politics there is no permanent enemy neither is their permanent  friends, what we have in politics is permanent interest.  The latest re-conciliatory move from PDP in all indication is likely going to make the former President to “take back his words on Atiku” and throw his unflinching support for his former VP especially now that  the ruling party (APC) has drawn a line with Obasanjo and even rumored to open a case file for his probing.

Indeed Obasanjo has nothing to loose by supporting Atiku.
