2019: What Atiku needs to do with Obasanjo – Jonathan

Atiku

Former President Goodluck Jonathan has strongly advised former Vice president Abubakar Atiku to reconcile with ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo for his presidential ambition to be fulfilled in 2019.

Jonathan, in a recent interview with Ovation Magazine, said Atiku must do everything possible to get Obasanjo’s endorsement,because he is the boss of all bosses.

The former president said any politician who ignores Obasanjo does so at its own peril.

“He (Atiku) can’t get the APC ticket. If Atiku gets our party (PDP) ticket, he would compete well,” Jonathan said.

“He’s always a passionate politician. But he would have to reach out to our boss, Baba OBJ, the boss of all bosses.

“We’ve all learnt at different times that you ignore OBJ at your own peril. OBJ has the magic wand, respected at home and abroad,” Jonathan said.

Atiku served under Obasanjo as Vice President, but the duo has not had good relationship even after the end of their tenure because of what the latter described as disloyalty while in office.
