God Will Never Forgive Me If I Support Atiku For President – Obasanjo

Image result for God Will Never Forgive Me If I Support Atiku For President – Obasanjo    Previous President Olusegun Obasanjo says ex-VP Atiku Abubakar "can never appreciate" his help for a political office.

He said God will never pardon him on the off chance that he backs Atiku's presidential aspiration.

Atiku filled in as VP to Obasanjo from 1999 to 2007. He tried to succeed Obasanjo in 2003 yet the senior statesman proceeded to finish another term.

By 2007 when Obasanjo's second term finished, the two men had broken apart. Obasanjo's charged third term motivation was additionally said to have intensified their debate.

In a meeting with Premium Times, Obasanjo said he has no individual feelings of spite against Atiku however just works with anybody "working for the benefit of Nigeria"."If I bolster Atiku for anything, God won't pardon me. In the event that I don't have the foggiest idea, yes. Be that as it may, once I know, Atiku can never make the most of my help," he was cited as saying.

"It's anything but an issue of working with or not working with a person. On the off chance that you are working for the benefit of Nigeria, I am working with you. On the off chance that you are not working for the benefit of Nigeria, it doesn't make a difference your identity, I am not working with you.

"I don't have individual hard feelings with anybody. On the off chance that you don't do well for Nigeria, you don't do well for all of us."He added that his resistance to Abubakar's desire is just inside the political segment and does not mean different circles of their lives."If my youngsters are getting hitched, he has sent agents. On the off chance that his kids are getting hitched, I have sent delegates. That is social. That isn't political," he stated, including that "on political ground, my position has not changed. On the off chance that I bolster Atiku for a political office other than the one I upheld him in the past when I didn't have any acquaintance with him … God won't pardon me".

Wole Soyinka, Nobel laureate, said Thursday that Obasanjo "stooped down" before Atiku in an offer to secure the ticket of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the 2003 decision.
