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.
