Garba Shehu then went further to mention that the parties involved in the meeting will all lose together.

Read the statement below:

The Presidency has received the news of former President Olusegun Obasanjo’s predictable U-turn and somersault on the endorsement of the PDP candidate, Atiku Abubakar, at a meeting Thursday, and to say that we are the least surprised by the well-rehearsed theatre.

They will lose together. Listening to the prepared statement of the former President after the meeting showed the usual ego trip and “I know it all” character of Chief Obasanjo.

In the first place, we dare to say that a pompous statement from the former President advising Nigerians on a vote against President Buhari is the best recommendation that can come at this time.

It also betrayed a lack of understanding of today’s politics which is about good governance.

The country voted for change in 2015 and a leader that ensures good governance which only President Buhari and the APC can provide.

Bent on these laudable goals, we will not allow ourselves to be distracted.

We are busy on various national issues including the restructuring and the diversification of the economy, fighting corruption, terrorism and other threats to national security; increasing the availability of electric power, improving education, health, and providing long-delayed infrastructure – roads, rail, airports and so forth.


  1. If there is one thing I frown about this APC people, I think it is the way and manner in which they lie. The same people that were happy 2014 when OBJ endorsed Buhari are now saying thrash. Until election time, then we will know the winner and loser.

  2. Even if Buhari is going to leave Aso Rock villa today as a front line leader of this country to another person obviously not to the set of crook, criminal and power drunk human-being parading themselves up and down blindfolding those who wish to be blindfolded to gain power, not at all. If Obasanjo like let him liberate who ever with olive oil or whatever who care. Does anybody Know Obasanjo in the field of politics before now if not for Babangida that imposed him on everyone in the west after the death of MKO and wanted to turn himself to god father, let wait till after May 2019 you people found something else to say when the loser will know himself.
