There were indications last night that the elaborate meeting on Monday geared towards ending the frosty relationship between President Goodluck Jonathan and former President Olusegun Obasanjo ended in fiasco.

GISTMANIA learnt from competent sources at the meeting that President Jonathan and other top leaders of the ruling People’s Democratic Party, PDP, who requested for the meeting with Obasanjo, felt disappointed with its outcome and may not push the idea of mending fences with the former leader again.

One of the sources, who was present at the meeting, told Vanguard that Obasanjo merely accepted to allow Jonathan and other PDP chieftains to visit him as a mark of respect to the office of the President and not to make peace with him.

According to the source, Obasanjo deliberately requested two prominent clergymen to be present as witnesses at the meeting to prove the point that it is Jonathan who actually caused disaffection between them by reneging on previous decisions they jointly reached.

It was learned that but for the respect Obasanjo has for the office which he once held, he would not have accepted to host Jonathan because of his recent provocative utterances against prominent Nigerian statesmen, including him (Obasanjo).

Why the meeting flopped
The source said Obasanjo was irked by last Sunday’s statement in which Jonathan referred to some elder statesmen behaving as ‘motor park touts’, a classification, Obasanjo reportedly took in bad faith.

The source said that at the meeting, Obasanjo opened up to those present and the two clergy men he had invited to ask Jonathan whether he had been honest with him and those he had assured he would run for a single term, if they supported him to win the last election.

The source said: “It is true that Obasanjo invited the two clergymen to witness the meeting which he grudgingly accepted to host because of the respect he has for the office of the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. He did not want to turn the president and his entourage down since they requested to see him in his house as part of their rally in the state.

“But the truth of the matter is that Baba has not shifted grounds on any issue since he feels that Jonathan has not been fair to him by not adhering to any of the previous agreements reached with him.

Motor park touts classification
“What really irked Baba is the reference by Jonathan to some Nigerian elder statesmen as behaving as ‘motor park touts’ a day before begging him to grant him audience in Abeokuta.

The man really feels insulted by such unfortunate outburst from the president of a country.
“There was no need to enter into any peace deal with Jonathan because similar deals done in the past only resulted in more attacks by him and his aides on Baba only for them to come begging for forgiveness once it is close to election.”

Obasanjo and Jonathan with members of the party’s Board of Trustees, BOT, met for about three hours in Abeokuta on Monday with a view to settling the differences between the two leaders and to seek his support for the president’s re-election, next month.

Obasanjo, who appears upset by the way Jonathan has so far run the country, has often taken to public fora to criticise him, including an open letter entitled “Before it is too late” and a critical book entitled “My Watch” which a court had barred from being circulated.

Congratulations Mr. poster I can see that you even have access to every meeting held by Mr. president even the meeting held in OBJ residence. keep monitoring the president on his meetings, utterances, and the turn-out of his campaigns. Hopefully your job will end at most 20th of February, 2015.
Idle mind.

OBJ is obviously behind GMB bcos as an experienced ex-leader, he knows he is capable of transforming dis nation and not d weakling, clueless, and corrupt ogogoro drinking GEJ who has failed nigeria...am not a politician, I don't belong nor support any political party, but one thing is for sure and that's why am clamouring for change.. if GMB emerged as president of nigeria, he will b force to work knowing dat the PDP are monitoring him and they will be glad to see him fail so that they could reclaim power. While APC on the other Hand, will want to do every thing to impress Nigerians so as to fully entrust the nation under them. It just like a business setting where there are competitions and several companies are trying to capture an industry. Naija this is the time we've patiently been waiting for, let's prove to the PDPIGS dat we the electorate are important by making sure that we vote against them and ensure that our vote count and put an end to PDpigs and their tyrant.. we've never had a strong opposition in this country and that has giving them the impetus that has made some of them like Mark to say publicly dat if his househood will vote for him dat he will win his senatorial sit with or without the mandates of the rest of idoma.                                          This People has stylishly turned every institution around and planted their allies in the key position to assist them with their evil plans. Our judiciary has been compromised, Police, army,Dss politicised, instead of Nigeria police, we now have PDP police dat go around
defending the interest of PDP instead of Nigerian.. it enough fellow Nigerian, let give GBM a chance and reclaim dis country..  VOTE GMB come Febuhari 14...peace

Dickman2 which one are you? Igbo ppl are not good, Yoruba ppl are touts but I can see that you are in-between, a combination of both. I know you are for sure from either Edo or Delta state, middle ground between the Igbos and the Yorubas ( neither Yoruba nor Igbos but combination of both) and you have inherited the two qualities of being not good and a tout.

Becos I won't tolerate any sort of Tribalism and Racism  by some people at all ............. 

Evrybody is entitled to his opinion bt must we bring Tribalism into ur various comments and post .......... 
 
Freedoms of speech does nt welcome Tribalism and Racism at all ............ I tink we shld get that cleared ....

So let us be tore lance in our comments / posts  and. Look forward in building one nation ...........

A̶̲̥̅♏ well cultured being ......bt i cant fold ♍γ̲̣̣̥ arms and be watching some attacking my tribe .........

I have made my points..........I rest my pen here .........
