Former president of Nigeria, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo has insinuated that Patience Jonathan, wife of the president, Diezani Alison-Madueke, Petroleum Minister, Stella Oduah, former Aviation Minister and Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Finance Minister are all ‘Presidents’ of Nigeria, noting that Goodluck Jonathan comes behind the quartet and is the weakest of them all.

Extracts from the three-volume autobiography of Obasanjo, titled, “My Watch” revealed how critical he is of Jonathan’s administration. “Five presidents in Nigeria, these were his wife, Diezani, Oduah, Ngozi, Goodluck Jonathan and that he was the weakest of the five,” Obasanjo wrote in ‘My Watch’.

Obasanjo also said Jonathan is incapable of governing well because he is selfish, weak-willed, callous and incapable of rising to the challenges of running a complex country like Nigeria.

According to SaharaReporters, an attempt by Buruji Kashamu, a senatorial aspirant on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party in Ogun state and a close associate of President Goodluck Jonathan, to stop the publication of a three-volume book by Obasanjo, appears to have failed as the book is set to go into circulation in the coming days.

The book will be unveiled in Lagos on 12 December, P.M.News learnt and invitations have already been dispatched to media men and other dignitaries.

A source close to Obasanjo has confirmed that copies of the former president’s exhaustive autobiography are already available to buyers in print and electronic form.

  • Pauloo, so Sokoto is Nigeria and Oyo is not? If Obasanjo is on fire will you use petrol from Delta to put it off? If Atiku use his CARD on all popularity in Nigeria and yet he could not get APC ticket is Obama in America suppose to come and direct Nigeria to give Atiku the ticket? Finaly, if you are hungry does that force SBassey to give you food – so man up and tell us “I Los wrong with this Administration?”

  • SBassey says:

    I am not blind but being objective in reasoning. There is a gang up against GEJ by forces oppose to his administration. That is the main reason for this insurgency. They want him to fail at all cost. OBJ has not been allowed to have his way that is why he is writing all this trash. This is what he never tolerated in his time. He is not the only past leader we have. GEJ is a descent man and people simply are not used to his kind of leadership because of long years of military dictatorship. No matter what good GEJ does some people will just not acknowledge it. OBJ has no moral justification to judge GEJ because he was worse than GEJ.

  • Pauloo says:

    You are one of those blind Nigerians? Can’t you see everything I Los wrong with this Administration?

  • Nwokedi Nworisara says:

    A military mind cannot understand a democratic disposition and so a bad score for Jonathan is indeed a big endorsement if President Jonathan’s ability to transit this country away from military stranglehold of over four decades. Kudos Mr President!

  • SBassey says:

    Obasanjo can write what ever he likes. It will not stop Jonathan from winning 2015 election. He is simply jealous and angry that Jonathan did not let him control from Ota farm.
