Former President Olusegun Obasanjo on Friday again hinted where his vote will go in the February general elections, saying it is “performance” and not “party loyalty” that will inform his choice of who to support.

Obasanjo, who has not hidden his soft spot for the All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship candidate in Ogun state and incumbent, Senator Ibikunle Amosun, in the February 28 governorship election in the state, made his position known when Igbo leaders from Lagos and Ogun States visited him at his Presidential Hilltop Estate, Abeokuta, the state capital.

The Igbo delegation led by Chief Austine Nkeze, was in the former president’s residence to identify with him and seek his direction regarding the forthcoming elections.

In his address to the delegation, Obasanjo appealed to non–indigenes in Ogun State to re-elect Amosun so that the infrastructural, urban renewal projects being executed by the governor could be sustained.

Obasanjo said: “In 2011, we were not together, though we were together before and I did campaign against him. But, see what he has been able to do in the last three and half years in the state, I cannot sacrifice performance for party.

“I never dream of having a bridge on dry land in Ogun state in my life time. Yes, we have Ogun River, where there is a bridge, but on a dry land, go to Ijebu, Sagamu, Ota, what am I seeing, bridges, not even one, two, three.

“So, my people, I am not talking about other elections. I have come to tell you that in order to appreciate what this personality has been able to do in the last three and half years, let us give him our votes.

“If you do me this honour and things change, come and meet me and I will be responsible. But, because I know his personality, he will not. What happened in 2011 is politics, and we can all see the difference between politics and personality”.

Baba if this is from you  I want to ask about your own performances such as your failed bid for a third term which even your wife and daughter fought you not Nigerians, your inability to privatise the power sector, turning Otta farm to a personal farm, your inability to equip Nigerian military, your scheme of bringing Musa Yaradua as president seeing that he has health issues. Oh that reminds me GMB the next to spend less than a year in office then Katsinsa State air port light will be turned-off to receive another dead president if at all GEJ will leave office, your inability to refubish the refineries after 8 solid yrs, your inability to question OBJ about the excess crude money during the gulf war, what about ordinary recharge card you were collecting 1% at every recharge and the list is endless.
In your time the press had no freedom thanks to GEJ who has given us the freedom to say our heart. in your time you would have arrested all these APC ( critics ) who are buzy every day insulting GEJ.
Obasanjo you think Nigerians are not aware that you are supporting GMB because the man is few days to his grave then that Toy Osibanjo will take over for you to be remoting him .
Listen to this advice the wrought of God is coming to every Nigerian that have wrecked this great country Nigeria, it will be better for you to start confessing your sins before you will suffer now and again the second death.
God Bless Nigeria.
