The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has given former president Olusegun Obasanjo 48 hours to clarify the statements credited to him about its presidential candidate and former vice president, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, or else it would be left with no option than to expose him.
Telescope.ng reports that the PDP specifically threatened to tell Nigerians and the whole world who Obasanjo is in reality.
Addressing a press conference in Kaduna, the PDP Board of Trustees (BoT) chairman, Senator Walid Jibrin, noted that he and the PDP have high regards and respect for the former president, adding however that it would be very disappointing if the statement credited to him which was published in virtually all the national dailies is true.
He described Obasanjo’s statement that he made a mistake in appointing Atiku his running mate as very worrisome.
The elder statesman said: “In the present circumstance, I wish to appeal to former president Olusegun Obasanjo to come out openly to repeat what he has said, whether or not he was misquoted or meant what was credited to him.
“Although he has not debunked what was reported, one can assume that what was quoted to have been said by him is correct, but if he fails to openly come out and say which is correct in 48 hours, you will hear the bombardment and I will have no option but to break the egg and tell the whole world and Nigerians who is Obasanjo.
“There is no doubt Obasanjo may still be angry with Atiku even after helping him to succeed but perhaps because he truncated his third term agenda. In any case, Alhaji Abubakar Atuku is our presidential candidate and I can tell you for sure that he will be the President in 2023 insha Allah.”
