Alamieyeseigha is said to have made the comment after blaming Obasanjo for his impeachment and imprisonment.
Former Bayelsa State Governor, Diepreye Alamieyeseigha has reportedly described ex-president, Olusegun Obasanjo as a ‘devil incarnate.’
Alamieyeseigha is said to have made the comment after blaming Obasanjo for his impeachment and imprisonment, according to Daily Sun.
The former governor said further that Obasanjo engineered the persecution in order to prevent him from running for the office of Vice President.
“For Goodluck, I knew that Jonathan was going to be vice president of Nigeria as far back as August 25, 2005. Former President, Olusegun Obasanjo, told me that since Atiku and I wanted to take his job, that it would be over his dead body; and that unless he died, Atiku cannot be president of Nigeria,” Alamieyeseigha said.
“Obasanjo said since Atiku had picked me as his running mate, he would make sure that he dealt with and disgraced us. He said he was going to use my deputy to rubbish me before everybody. So, I knew,” he added.
Alamieyeseigha was impeached in 2005 after being accused of money laundering.
