Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has yet again opened up over the estranged relationship between him and his former deputy, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, saying that despite the fact that the latter was corrupt during their regime, he (Obasanjo) had to take him along for his second term in office in 2007 due to expediency.

“At that time, politically, I needed to carry
him (Atiku) along but then to put him in check,” said Obasanjo.

Obasanjo, who said that he was unaware of Atiku’s activities until law enforcement agencies in America alerted his government, however, confessed that he could not in good conscience ask that his deputy be investigated then.

He, however, said he could not ignore the calls by the Americans to investigate the ex-vice president, which the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) did then.

The ex-president added that the allegations by the Americans were justified since Atiku is a fugitive in United States.

“I don’t know if he can go to America…He travels? Travels to where? To Dubai? Let him go to America and return to Nigeria”.

He also took a swipe at the same EFCC, saying that the commission had lost its original vision of a bold and fearless agency capable of fighting economic and financial crimes in the country.

Obasanjo made this criticism in an interview published in the current and special edition of Zero Tolerance magazine, a publication of the anti-graft agency to mark its 10th year anniversary.

Obasanjo also denied ever prompting Ribadu to investigate anybody for political reasons but he was quick to admit that Ribadu went haywire.

The ex-president also faulted the choice of Mrs. Faridi Waziri to head the commission after its pioneer chair, Nuhu Ribadu, was unceremoniously removed by the late Ptresident Yar’Adua, saying she did not have the cognate experience and connection needed for the position.

Talking about Nigeria’s position on global corruption index before and now, he said: “There was a lot of work that was done to achieve that feat (moving from position number 2 to 45). I think we have come down to only being above 34 countries; that shows that there must be a lot SOURCE: http://newsinigeria.blogspot.com/2013/09/atiku-is-corrupt-fugitive-and-cant.html#more

O my God are you fighting for a politician. Maybe you are eating from them now but I tell you they neither have friends nor have enemies. They will only become you friend when they need you, after you have been used they will dumped you hence making you their enemy. God help Nigeria.

HE WAS A TOP MEMBER OF YOUR CABINET, PRECISELY THE NUMBER 2 MAN. YOU GAVE HIM THE PRIVILEGES BECAUSE YOU WERE INTO IT. YOU ARE A FULL PART OF THE SAME CONSPIRACY RIGHT FROM WHEN YOU WERE A MILITARY HEAD OF STATE UNTIL YOU BECAME PRESIDENT.

FIRST OF ALL, THE BIG FARM IN YOUR VILLAGE "OTTA FIRMS" WAS A BIG STEAL FROM "OPERATION FEED THE NATION" WHY DON'T YOU TELL NIGERIANS HOW A CIVIL SERVANT OWNS THAT HUGE PROPERTY? YOU HAVE MULTIPLE OIL BLOCKS IN NIGERIA. ALL OVER AFRICA YOU HAVE MULTI-BILLION DOLLAR INVESTMENTS. IN THE UK YOU HAVE STARCHED BILLIONS IN THE UK BANKS AND BUILDINGS IN MALAYSIA, CHINA, INDIA, YOU HAVE MONIES STOLEN FROM NIGERIAN WEALTH IN SWITZERLAND WHICH BUSINESSMEN MOVED FOR YOU AND OTHERS.

SO, WHO IS TO BLAME IN WHAT SITUATION?
WHY SHOULD "A" POINT FINGERS AT "B" WHILE "A" IS THE ORIGINATOR AND "B" IS THE FOLLOWER?

BEFORE YOU MAKE SUCH REMARK, FIRST TAKE A GOOD LOOK AT YOURSELF IN THE MIRROR. YOU DON'T DECEIVE ANYONE DUDE.
