2019: If God Decrees That Atiku Will Rule, Millions Of Obasanjo Cannot Stop Him – Atiku’s Camp Explodes, Sets The Controversial Record Straight

Emerging report indicates that former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, has shunned a purported reconciliatory meeting with former President, Olusegun Obasanjo.

Recall, that a video which had recently gone viral, showed Obasanjo saying he could not have allowed Atiku to succeed him, apparently because of the magnitude of the information at his disposal.

“With what I know about Atiku, if I had put Atiku forward, God would not have forgiven me”, Obasanjo claimed in the video, said to have been recorded in 2015.

The insinuations from the video have portrayed Atiku as being corrupt in the public view, but the former Vice President had recently in Lagos put paid to all the insinuations surrounding his source of wealth, where he narrated how he established his business as far back as 1971.

An impeccable source within the Obasanjo camp revealed that with the stance taken by Atiku, it is going to be a fight to the finish, just as he revealed how Atiku had refused to take advantage of two meetings meant to reconcile the old friends.

The source claimed that though Atiku had been to Obasanjo’s home in Abeokuta, he said that was just a publicity stunt, revealing that there were two meetings called specifically for reconciliatory purposes, that had been thwarted.

“Some people tried to put all these crisis to an end, they called two meetings for them within and outside the country, but their efforts were frustrated. It is a pity things are going this way.

“But for the steps taken by Atiku and his die-hard supporters, the matter would have been settled long ago. Baba only wanted him to confess the allegations against him and apologise. He could just have done that, but he botched it twice.

“There had been two meetings called to settle this matter. On the first occasion, he refused to apologise and he shunned the second one that was to be held outside Nigeria.

“He attended the one in Nigeria, but was adamant, he did not apologise. On the second meeting, baba was actually waiting for him in an East African country, but Atiku did not show up. That was a great opportunity he missed. He would have been President, if he had not fought his benefactor.

“Unknown to many people, baba actually brought him on board in 1999, to succeed him in 2007. If you remember, Atiku was already elected a Governor in Adamawa, but baba picked him as his running mate for the Presidency”, the source said.

However, in response from the other camp, a source linked with Atiku faulted the claim, saying that Obasanjo was becoming too overbearing for his former Vice, hence the need for Atiku to check his excesses.

Atiku’s ally was also of the opinion that the apology demanded by Obasanjo would not have changed anything, because the former President had made up his mind and had publicly said he would not back Atiku.

“Do not believe everything they are saying, it is even people in Obasanjo’s camp that are scuttling all the reconciliation moves. They are not sincere. What else do they want? If we call a meeting, they will make it public. Ask them why?

“The last time Atiku was in Abeokuta, it was supposed to be a closed-door meeting, it was nott meant to be for the press, but when we got there, they had already briefed the media.

“Whatever we do, they have a way of turning it around. That is why we went with our team for the Abuja meeting, in case they wanted to play pranks. The one they told you we did not attend, was supposed to be in Ethiopia.

“They did not tell you the country, but I am telling you now that it was supposed to be in Ethiopia. They told Atiku late, and he already had another engagement within the country.

“They cannot blame anybody for that. More so, why are they playing God? Is Obasanjo God? Let nobody play God, whatever would be, would be. 2019 is not a do-or-die matter; if God decrees that Atiku will rule, millions of Obasanjo cannot stop it. We shall live beyond 2019 by God’s grace.”
