While some are hailing the former president of Nigeria, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo over his recent critics on President Jonathan that his regimes is the worst that Nigeria ever had; that was not so with the Ekiti State Governor, Mr. Ayo Fayose, as he has openly thrown it back to the former President, Olusegun Obasanjo, that his own regimes, was even worst than that of Jonathan’s.
The Ekiti state governor, who spoke at a summit in Ife, pointed out that Obasanjo had no moral justification to criticize Jonathan’s administration because the former President’s government was far more corrupt than the one he is saying all sorts things concerning.
All these was coming from Fayose at a notable leaders of the Yoruba race summit to endorsed Jonathan for a second term in office.
They were all seen or appear to be speaking with one voice in supports of Jonathan’s re-election as can be seen from the following utterances:
“Do not ask Obasanjo for anything as he would certainly not support you” and if you don’t know, let me tell you that we know him more than you do”
The Ooni of Ife, Oba Okunade Sijuwade, led notable traditional rulers from many Yoruba towns majority of who are from Ekiti State to the summit.
“Even if you give your blood, your being, your strength and your life to Obasanjo, he would not support you.
“We know him more than you know him. He will not want a man with independent mind.
“Mr. President, you have refused to toe the path of unconstitutionality. You have refused to level Borno and other states like he levelled Odi in Bayelsa State.
“You are taking your time to respect human rights by not committing crime against humanity, he won’t like that.
“Your Excellency, the more you try to curry Obasanjo’s favour, the more he would continue to disparage you. If you continue to curry his favour, we are not going to curry him. He doesn’t like people that give him respect.
“Your Excellency, your second term has been concluded in heaven. Fear not! Obasanjo accused government of the day of corruption, but what happened to the N50m he shared to each senator and House of Representatives member during his third term agenda that failed?
“What do you call the donations to Obasanjo Library? That is corruption. Go and check the code of conduct, the form filled by Obasanjo. We knew when he came out of the prison; we knew his situation.
