The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Presidential Campaign Organisation on Sunday took a swipe at former President Olusegun Obasanjo saying he is unfair to President Good luck Jonathan and Nigerians.
Chief Obasanjo had on Saturday alleged that President Jonathan was plotting to win the rescheduled March 28 presidential election by ‘hook or crook’ and to plunge the country into crisis if he loses the election.
But reacting to the allegations at a press conference in Abuja, Director, media and publicity of the PDP Presidential Campaign Organisation, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode described the allegations as reckless, saying the former President should present his case before the Council of State if he has evidence.
Fani-Kayode claimed that Chief Obasanjo is against President Jonathan’s reelection because Jonathan has refused to dance to his tune on certain issues stressing that the president would soon expose the former President.
“After Jonathan came to power, Obasanjo not only tried to tele-guide him but he also asked him to do a number of things that were simply wrong and unacceptable. It is for President Jonathan himself to divulge those things and I am sure that he will do so at the appropriate time.
“As far as he is concerned, he must either control Jonathan or Jonathan had to go. That is why he decided to secretly support the APC and became their ‘navigator in chief’. He was determined to pull the whole house down rather than allow Jonathan to return to power,” he said.
Fani-Kayode stated that Obasanjo is prepared to put even the ‘devil into power’ adding that the former President who he said insisted on having a third term in office is planning to head an interim government if the option is explored.
The campaign spokesman stressed that Chief Obasanjo’s utterances are capable of creating chaos in the country adding that the former President should present to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) the data of whatever sinister plan President Jonathan has, to stay in power by hook or crook.
