presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), as “complete non-event”.
On Thursday, Obasanjo endorsed Atiku, saying he had learnt his lessons, had reinvented himself, would not be President of just a section of the country, and that he understands the economy better than President Muhammadu Buhari. This is despite several years of demonizing Atiku, notably calling him disloyal and corrupt.
But, responding in a statement by Festus Keyamo, Director of Strategic Communications, the Buhari Campaign Organization said it was “bemused and amused that a character who intends to be President of Nigeria has, for the past eleven years, consistently begged for ‘forgiveness’ from a man who has consistently and unequivocally called him a very corrupt fellow”.
It said it did not intend to “dwell on all the unprintable things touching on the lack of character, lack of integrity and corruptibility of Alhaji Atiku Abubakar that Chief Obasanjo has repeatedly and consistently told the whole world about up until few weeks ago”, as these are “well-documented and circulated for Nigerians to remember”.
