Obasanjo in New Book, Says He Planted Moles in His VP’s Camp THISDAY exclusive In his latest book titled My Watch scheduled to be launched in Lagos this morning, former President Olusegun Obasanjo has chronicled the genesis of the uneasy relationship between him and his former deputy, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, as well as how his aides planted moles within Atiku’s camp to monitor him. Obasanjo, who denied ever seeking Third Term in office, blamed Atiku for what he described as a campaign of calumny against him on the issue after buying up the media. Revealing details of their private conversations at different times, Obasanjo also traced the ascension to power of President Goodluck Jonathan and the compromise deal that was struck for him (Jonathan) to spend only one term in office. He said it would be dishonourable for the president to now go back on that promise by contesting the 2015 presidential election. Obasanjo also accused the Jonathan administration of promoting corruption. He cited several exampl ...
under intense pressure to drop Vice-President Mohammed Namadi Sambo as his running mate. Although there has not been any reported rift between the duo ─ unlike former President Olusegun Obasanjo and his deputy, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar ─ the major argument being canvassed against the retention of the former governor of Kaduna State is that he is a “political lightweight” and cannot deliver the needed northern votes in the election. As the intrigues are intensified ahead of the official ratification of Jonathan as the candidate of the party after his adoption by various organs of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), the position of Sambo has continued to come under scrutiny. But a presidential aide told TheCable that Jonathan has no intention of dropping the architect as his vice-president. “It is true that the president has been under pressure from various interests in the north that he should not retain Sambo, but I can confidently tell you that as at today (Sunday), the president has no plans to d ...
2015: APC will visit Obasanjo soon – Buhari As part of its ongoing efforts to win more political gladiators into the party ahead of the 2015 general elections, the leadership of the All Progressive Congress, APC, has said it would soon visit former president, Olusegun Obasanjo. A former Head of State and a chieftain of the party, Gen. Muhammadu Buhari, made this known on Wednesday in Abuja, while speaking with newsmen at the residence of former Vice President, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar. The party chieftain noted that the leadership of the APC, had been paying courtesy visits to prominent Nigerians and it was high time they visited Chief Obasanjo. He said: “We have been visiting others; like the G7 Governors; we have visited former heads of state, and we intend to visit former President Olusegun Obasanjo any time he is available, to ask for understanding and brief him on why we formed the APC.” Buhari said he was happy with the outcome of the meeting between the leadership of the APC and Abubakar.

Once upon a time, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar (then the Vice President of Nigeria) engaged in a battle of wits with then President Olusegun Obasanjo. Atiku eventually left the PDP and joined Bola Tinubu to form the Action Congress (AC). Many pundits anticipated the "implosion" of the PDP. It did not happen. Atiku later dumped AC (taking the party's registration certificate with him!) and returned to the PDP. The PDP "lived happily thereafter". Lesson: If the PDP did not "fall" when Vice President Atiku Abubakar fought the leadership, it is unlikely to "fall" because Gov. Rotimi Amaechi has now taken up the gauntlet. People should not make too much of this Amaechi affair. The interests that bind typical Nigerian politicians together are complex and they do not unravel that easily.
