Nigeria’s former vice president and 2019 presidential aspirant under the platform of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP ), Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, has denied having any rift with his former boss, former President Olusegun Obasanjo.
The former vice president stated this, at the weekend in Lafia , Nasarawa State capital, when he visited the state PDP chapter to solicite support for the party’s presidential ticket.
According to him “I don’t have any problem with former President Olusegun Obasanjo as far as I’m concern but if he has a problem with me, that is his own business,” he said.
Former President Obasanjo had, in early August 2018, while returning from Kigali, Rwanda, said that God would never forgive him if he supported Atiku for President.
According to him, “If I support Atiku for anything, God will not forgive me. If I do not know, yes, but once I know, Atiku can never enjoy my support,” Obasanjo had said.
On consensus candidature of the PDP, the PDP Presidential aspirant said if it did not work, all the aspirants should be allowed to go into the race proper where the delegates will decide the candidate.
According to Atiku, “Well if it is possible, it will be good but if it is not possible them we meet in the field,” he said.
