The political system took a different dimension especially when former President Obasanjo endorsed his most hated associate, Atiku Abubakar. I was in Abeokuta, Ogun state when the Waziri of Adamawa secretly visited his former boss at his Ota island.
We were not surprised because politicians are coming day by day, as soon as Atiku, Saraki, PDP National chairman and some persons unidentified by me, the meeting went to close door. It took 2 hours to end the meeting. Shortly after their arrival TY Danjuma, Aliyu Gusau and some Oil magnets stormed the venue. Now, I got confused. I asked myself what is going on here. This is beyond political gathering, but a formation of business interests. Few of us were told to step out, but I was lucky to stay in due to my Dad’s influence.
The meeting began as at 11 pm and ended 2:49 am. It was fantastic actually, but every horrible and disheartening, I saw evil elements and wicked games. I knew Obasanjo is evil but never knew he is as evil as he was during the meeting. I now realize why my Dad sent me to represent him.
I don’t like President Buhari, but something came to my mind why did is Obasanjo so wicked to him and his people (the North), unfortunately I don’t have the answers.
I don’t need to go into details of every bit of their conversation, but rather highlight the conditions given to Atiku and his elements, if they actually need his (Obansanjo’s) support.
1. The Waziri signed a paper to allocate more Oil Wells to both TY Danjuma and his cronies.
2. That the Mambila hydro power station will be suspended.
3. That the Baro Sea Port will be suspended as well.
4. That he will impose National ban on Cattle Range.
5. That when supported into office he will make sure all oil exploration shall stop.
6. That he shall renew the subsidy regime.
7. That all corruption charges shall not be given attention.
8. He will handover to Peter Obi.
Seeing the above conditions my heart exude, I couldn’t sleep, I couldn’t eat, I have to confide in my Dad, he told me clearly that Obasanjo hates anything development, my dad confessed to me unless the man is dead otherwise we can’t get ourselves out of this mess.
My worries about the whole meeting was Atiku’s acceptance to deadly proposals. Why would he accept such evil agenda? Does his political ambition override our National development or what?
As I said earlier I don’t want to go into details, but my self consciousness will always judge me if I fail to say something. I know what I am putting myself into. I know what might happen to me, but I don’t care, I will be very happy while laying down in my grave if Nigerians know what they are plotting than to live and cry day by day.
My note is a point of call.
