Let Jonathan Live His Life, You Are Not The Only One That Loves Nigeria, Fayose Tells Obasanjo

Ekiti State Governor, Mr Ayodele Fayose has urged former
President, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo to stop attacking the immediate past
President, Dr Goodluck Jonathan, saying; “Dr Goodluck Jonathan is no longer the
president of Nigeria, he should be allowed to live a private life devoid of
mudslinging from elder statesmen like Chief Obasanjo.”
Governor Fayose said he was miffed that former President
Obasanjo could choose the 11th Convocation Lecture of Benson Idahosa University
(BIU) Benin, Edo State to say that “performance of Jonathan while in office
will hunt the people of the South-South region for a long time to come.”
In a statement issued in Ado-Ekiti on Monday by his Special
Assistant on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka, the governor
said the people of the South South had already demonstrated their approval of
Jonathan’s performance while in office by voting overwhelmingly for him on
March 28 despite the gang-up orchestrated by Chief Obasanjo and his allies.

“Most importantly, Jonathan’s performance as a democrat has
been widely acknowledged locally and internationally, particularly by President
Mohammadu Buhari, who on many occasions acknowledged the role he (Jonathan)
played in midwifing a peaceful and successful transition programme, thereby
averting the feared crisis in the country.
“This is in contrast to Baba Obasanjo, who tried third term
when he was about concluding his constitutional two terms. And who knows
whether he would have tried fourth term if he had succeeded with his third term
“The reality is, assuming but not conceding that Jonathan
performed below expectation, democratic governance that he established in
Nigeria is more important than any other performance that Obasanjo alluded to,”
the governor said.
Speaking further, Governor Fayose urged Obasanjo to stop
running other Nigerians down, saying; “We are all stakeholders in the country
Nigeria. It is wrong for any Nigerian no matter how highly placed to go about
carrying himself around as the only honest and lover of the country.”
The governor said; “since Baba Obasanjo has openly destroyed
his Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) membership card, he is free to go about
seeking relevance in the All Progressives Congress (APC) without running anyone
He said people living in glass houses should avoid throwing
stones, adding that Nigerians know those involved in the Halliburton scandal
and people who are yet to be cleared of their alleged complicity in a scam like
Halliburton lacked moral rights to brand other people as corrupt.
