President Jonathan's response to Obasanjo's 5 questions

Olusegun Obasanjo and President Goodluck Jonathan

Yesterday, DavidvsNaija reported that President Goodluck Jonathan was placed on the hot seat by former president, Olusegun Obasanjo during a reconciliatory meeting on Monday.

The former president queried Jonathan, "Tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth, (1) Did you agree to run for only one term or not? (2) What did you tell me was your reason for not going after Boko Haram insurgents even when I told you this will boomerang? (3) What happened to Nigeria's external reserve and Sovereign Wealth Fund? (4) Did you give licence to Niger Delta militants (Dokubo and Tompolo) to import arms in the name of their privately owned companies? If so, for what reason? (5) Did you not get correspondence from the United States consulate that a certain citizen named Buruji Kashamu is indicted for drug trafficking? Why did you appoint the same Kashamu as South West leader of PDP rather than hand him over to the US? And did the.PDP give automatic Senate ticket to a wanted and convicted drug baron?"

A seemingly remorseful Jonathan, could only plead for understanding and corporation, choosing not to respond to some of the questions posed by the former president.

The president had after his re-election campaign in Abeokuta, Ogun State, gone with the overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adeboye and founder of Living Faith Church, Bishop David Oyedepo, to the residence of Obasanjo to seek his forgiveness and support.

A PDP source further hinted that the choice of the two revered pastors was to soften the ground for the former president to attend to him.

Obasanjo had since refused to endorse Jonathan's re-election bid.

Their relationship had shortly after 2011 degenerated and culminated in the resignation of Obasanjo from the activities of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
