My Fight With Obasanjo Is Over - Atiku Abubakar
Old things have passed away, all things are now new. Former
Vice President Atiku Abubakar has said that the quarrel
between him and his former boss, ex-President Olusegun
Obasanjo is over.
“I don’t harbour any grudge against my former boss. Yes, we
had disagreements in office. These were mere
disagreements. I harbour no hatred or enmity against him or
anybody. I never had anything against him and I will never
have,” Atiku said.
“Politics is not war,” he added.
Former VP Atiku spoke on Tuesday, in Abuja, when he granted
audience to the leaders of the Northern Youth Leaders
Forum, a group that embarked on a mission to settle the
quarrel between him and Obasanjo.
The group, led by Eliot Afiyo, had weeks back met with
Obasanjo in his Ota farm, in Ogun State, during which the ex-
President announced that he had forgiven his former deputy.
Atiku thanked the group for successfully brokering peace
between him and Obasanjo, and added that this single effort
had marked the leaders of the youth organisation as serious-
minded people, fully prepared to take over the leadership of
the country from their seniors.
Both Obasanjo and Atiku ruled the country together as
numbers one and two between 1999 and 2007..
