Why I Endorsed Atiku For President – Obasanjo



Ex-president of Nigeria, Olusegun Obasanjo, has revealed why endorsed Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar.

Obasanjo, said his faith as a Christian does not allow him to keep grudges against Abubakar, especially when he himself asks God for forgiveness daily.

Prior to now, Abubakar who served as vice-president in Obasanjo’s administration between 1999 and 2007 had  a rustic relationship with his boss.


The former president earlier alleged that Abubakar had corruption cases outside the country, to which, he must answer.

“God will not forgive me if I support Atiku for president,” he once said.

However, Obasanjo seems to have had a rethink and made a u-turn to forgive, endorse and gave Atiku his blessings to be Nigeria’s next president.

“Obviously, you have mended fences with the Party and fully reconciled with the Party. That’s why today, you are the presidential candidate of the Party.”

Obasanjo also prayed for Atiku to emerge Nigeria’s president after next year’s general election.

“And when you become Nigerian President which, Insha-Allah, you will be, remember what we did together in government – we ran an administration by Nigerians for all Nigerians where merit and performance count more than blood relationship, friendship or kith and kin.”

Stating reasons for endorsing his former vice, Obasanjo said, “And in all honesty, my former Vice-President has re-discovered and re-positioned himself. As I have repeatedly said, it is not so much what you did against me that was the issue but what you did against the party, the government and the country.”
