Obasanjo fight Jonathan because he refused to be an errand boy – Rowland Owie
By Simon Ebegbulem
BENIN—FORMER Chief Whip of the Senate, Senator Rowland Owie, has alleged that the reason former President Olusegun Obasanjo was at war with the administration of President Goodluck Jonathan was because the latter refused to be an errand boy to the former President.
He said that Nigerians were suffering today due to the faulty foundation laid by the former President.
He said: “The former president should apologize to Nigerians rather than blame the administration of President Jonathan which is doing very well for Nigerians.
“I am impressed that more and more Nigerians are getting to know that Obasanjo is not truthful and claims to be what he is not. Obasanjo ran the most corrupt government since the amalgamation of Nigeria. The revenue that Obasanjo got in only one year of his wasted eight years regime was almost the total revenue that Ibrahim Babangida’s regime got in eight years. While many legacies were left behind by IBB’s regime, there is nothing good that can be traced to Obasanjo’s regime.
“All Obasanjo was known for was election rigging both within the PDP and the general elections. Obasanjo openly rigged out late Sunday Awoniyi at the PDP national convention in 2000 at Eagle Square in favour of colourless opponents. He used the police to invade the Apo Mansion, all in his bid to ruin the independence of the National Assembly. Obasanjo is worse than Hitler. Obasanjo is like a poisonous crop that germinated on Nigerian soil.
“He should hide his head in shame as he is the forerunner of the anti-Christ. In the Benin Kingdom before the arrival of the whites, a man like Obasdanjo who failed woefully in public administration would have been banished. The problem between Jonathan and Obasanjo is that Jonathan refused to be his errand boy.
“There is no President of Nigeria that Obasanjo has not fought. Even the late Musa Yar’Adua, whom he brought without the consent of the North, he fought, even after the latter’s death.”
