You Are Bittered Because Atiku Stopped Your Third Term Agenda, PDP Knocks Obasanjo

The Peoples Democratic Party(PDP) has tackled former President Olusegun Obasanjo over comments that he made, saying “I made a mistake when I was to be president in picking my number 2.”

Obasanjo had over the weekend said he made a mistake in the choice of his number two ahead of the 1999 presidential election.

He was elected as President in 1999 along with the current PDP presidential candidate of the PDP, Atiku Abubakar, as his vice-president.

The former President, who did not mention Atiku in his statement, said it was a mistake he made in good faith, but was saved by God.

But the PDP is not taking Obasanjo’s comment lightly, and has threatened to expose the character of the former President should he fail to clarify his statement within 48 hours.

Adressing a news conference in Kaduna on Monday, Chairman of the PDP Board of Trustee, Senator Walid Jibril said although the party has great respect for the former President, it would be disappointing if the statement credited to him, turned out to be true.

He further accused Obasanjo of being angry with Atiku Abubakar for truncating his third term agenda despite the latter’s contribution to the Obasanjo administration.

“I wish to appeal to former President Obasanjo to come out openly to repeat what he has said,” Jibril said. “Whether or not he was misquoted or meant what was credited to him.

“Although he has not debunked what was reported, one can assume that what was quoted to have been said by him is correct, but if he fails to openly come out and say which is correct in 48 hours, you will hear the bombardment and I will have no option but to break the egg and tell the whole world and Nigerians who is Obasanjo.

“There is no doubt Obasanjo may still be angry with Atiku even after helping him to succeed but perhaps for truncating his third term agenda. In any case, Alhaji Abubakar Atuku is our presidential candidate and I can tell you for sure that he will be the President in 2023 insha Allah.”

On the the outcome of the Presidential primaries and subsequent picking of Governor Ifeanyi Okowa as running mate of Atiku which may have angered Governor Nyesom Wike, the BoT Chairman disclosed that a high powered reconciliatory committee is soon to be constituted to meet Governor Wike and appeal to him.

”Governor Wike is a great party man who fought for the party, when the committee is constituted, in which we will also bring other contestants together, we will go and meet with Governor Wike and appeal to him even if it means kneeling down to beg him,” he said.

Two robbers set ablaze in Ibadan after snatching motorcycle from Okada rider

Waterfield Luxury Hotel Akobo Ibadan

It was the end of the road for two robbers on Thursday, June 23, in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital, when an angry mob set them ablaze after they snatched a motorcycle popularly known as Okada from a commercial motorcycle rider.

They were sent ablaze at the Ijokodo-WAEC area along the Sango-Eleyele highway after they snatched the Okada at the Ologuneru area and were pursued by other Okada riders who then caught up with them.

I was heading towards WAEC office in Ijokodo when I saw a crowd that gathered and with smoke pervading the scene.

On getting to the area, I asked an onlooker what happened and he told me that the two young men were set ablaze after snatching a commercial motorcycle from the owner around 8:00 a.m.

I also asked an official of the Oyo State Road Transport Management Agency (OYRTMA) who was also at the scene for details of the incident and he told me that the information they got was that the two robbers snatched the Okada at Ologuneru and were pursued to Ijokodo before they were caught up with.

According to his report, as they snatched the Okada, the owner raised the alarm and this caused other Okada riders around to pursue them from Ologuneru to Ijokodo, a distance of about four kilometres, and eventually caught up with them.

When they were apprehended, according to the onlookers at the scene, the two robbers were said to have disclosed that they came from the Agodi Gate area of the city to snatch the motorcycle at Ologuneru.

However, it was gathered that by this time, more Okada riders and other residents of the area had converged and started beating the two robbers mercilessly. Some of the Okada riders later scooped petrol from their motorcycles and poured it on the robbers before setting them ablaze.

The photographs of their burnt bodies may be too gory for use in this article.

However, shortly after the two robbers were set ablaze, policemen from the Sango Division of the Oyo State Police Command raced to the scene and dispersed the crowd while officials of OYRTMA were also seen pouring water on the fire that was set on the robbers.

By the time I left the scene, policemen had taken over the road while efforts were being made to remove the burnt bodies of the robbers.
