Governor tells Obasanjo to stop attacking Jonathan

Nigerians know those involved in the Halliburton scandal, and people who are yet to be cleared of their alleged complicity in a scam like Halliburton lacked moral rights to brand other people as corrupt.

 

The end is not yet in sight, regarding fmr. President Olusegun Obasanjo’s comments about former President Jonathan and the South-South.

Another attack has come from Gov. Ayo Fayose of Ekiti state. He has asked Obasanjo to stop attacking Jonathan.

He said that the South-South people have demonstrated that they love their son-Goodluck Ebele Jonathan.

Adding that “This is in contrast to Baba Obasanjo, who tried (to have a) third term when he was about concluding his constitutional two terms. And who knows whether he would have tried fourth term if he had succeeded with his third term agenda?”

In a statement issued by his Special Assistant on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka, Fayose said “people living in glass houses should avoid throwing stones.Nigerians know those involved in the Halliburton scandal, and people who are yet to be cleared of their alleged complicity in a scam like Halliburton lacked moral rights to brand other people as corrupt.”

He also said that  “The reality is, assuming but not conceding that Jonathan performed below expectation, the democratic governance that he established in Nigeria is more important than any other performance that Obasanjo alluded to.”

Fayose also advised fmr. President Obasanjo saying, “We are all stakeholders in Nigeria. It is wrong for any Nigerian, no matter how highly placed, to go about carrying himself around as the only honest and lover of the country.”
