2019: You are a confused old man – again FG hits back at Obasanjo as they battle words for words


2019: You are a confused old man – again FG hits back at Obasanjo as they battle words for words







The Presidency has described former President Olusegun
Obasanjo’s declaration that he would support his former deputy,  Atiku
Abubakar for the 2019 presidential election, as a sign of confusion not
worthy of attention.





Senior Special Assistant to President on Media and Publicity, Garba
Shehu, said that whoever Obasanjo chooses to support at the 2019
elections is irrelevant, as the former president had publicly changed
his mind on the matter so many times over the past few months.




Obasanjo had, while declaring his support for Atiku, said that he
would not be neutral in the 2019 general elections because the country
was being destroyed with incompetence, corruption, lack of focus,
insecurity, nepotism, brazen impunity.




Shehu, in his reaction, told State House Correspondents that, “Former
president Obasanjo denounces one person today and supports that same
person the next day.




“When it pleases him, he brings God into the matter and uses that as his excuse for whatever position he has chosen,” he said.




The presidential spokesman added that he was not surprised that
newspapers reported Obasanjo expressing neutrality at a weekend forum,
only for the former president to express a completely different stance
after a day or two.




“We have learnt not to take his utterances seriously anymore.




“We know that the slightest wind can make him change his mind again.
After all, this is the same man who publicly tore his party registration
card barely four years ago, and he now claims to be backing the same
party,” Shehu said.
