Obasanjo To Pres. Jonathan, Others: Don’t Beg Me, Do The Needful by farem: 9:07pm On Oct 12, 2014
Don’t beg me, do the needful, Obasanjo tells Jonathan, others
Posted by: Ernest Nwokolo, Abeokuta

Former President, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo returned from a trip to South Africa on Sunday and told President Goodluck Jonathan, Senate President, David Mark, and the leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party(PDP) to do the “needful” and stop inundating him with appeals for forgiveness.
Obasanjo in a statement at his Hill top mansion on Presidential Hill Top Estate, Abeokuta, said he has neither left the PDP on whose platform he governed the country for eight nor has anybody offended him by virtue of his membership of the party.
The former Chairman, Board of Trustees of PDP, who was South Africa over the South Sudan’s increasing insecurity and violence, said he almost cut short his stay there following “the avalanche of news, cacophony of appeals and pleadings from some quarters of PDP,” at home.
He said appeals are evidential manifestation of “misunderstandings and misrepresentations” of facts.
Obasanjo who also stated he had had occasion to make his stand on vital matters affecting party known to Jonathan, Mark and the Party Chairman, that issues of principle, morality, honour , integrity, commitment and character which to him are paramount, said he could not “accept that the Zonal leader of my political Party and, worse still in my zone, will be an indicted drug baron wanted in America.”
Obasanjo said: “during last week when I was in South Africa as the Chairman of AU Commission of Inquiry on South Sudan and while with my fellow Commissioners, we were deliberating on how to help that new country out of its problem of security and violence, I received avalanche of news and cacophony of appeals and pleadings from some quarters of PDP leadership.
” There are misunderstandings and misrepresentations which some of those appeals and pleas manifested; hence this explanation from me. Talking of inviting me back to PDP is wrong and it is a great misrepresentation as I have never left PDP and I will never leave PDP.
” I have said it before and I will say it again, I rose to become the President of Nigeria on the platform of PDP and for that reason alone, I will remain a card-carrying and ward-active member of PDP for as long as I have to be a political party member.
“Secondly, nobody has personally offended me as a result of my membership of PDP. If, however, anybody or group feels offended by my continued membership, I will offer an unreserved apology but continue to remain in the Party.
” I have had occasions to say to the President, the Senate President and the Party Chairman separately that I have no quarrel with any individual or group in the Party. There are, for me, issues of principle, morality, honour , integrity, commitment and character which are paramount.
“For instance, as a former President of Nigeria, the Chairman of West Africa Commission on Drug and a member of Global Commission on Drug, I cannot accept that the Zonal leader of my political Party and, worse still in my zone, will be an indicted drug baron wanted in America.
“How do I explain that to friends outside Nigeria? This is only one of the many issues that I have pointed and still pointing out.
“I have national and international standard to maintain and reputation to keep and sustain. For these reasons, I opted to remain active only at the ward level of the Party till the leadership does the needful.

“But under no condition will my commitment to Nigeria be diminished. And, for me, it is commitment to Nigeria first and any other commitment can only follow in second or third place. Where any other commitment is in tandem with what I see and understand as commitment to Nigeria, such other commitment will share a pride of place with Nigeria.
“I must hasten to thank the President, the Senate President and the Chairman of PDP with whom, at their instances, these issues have been discussed and laid to rest. My interest and commitment to Nigeria go beyond partisan politics.
“Today, Nigeria needs all hands on deck to deal with our pressing problems of security including the issue of Chibok girls, widening inequality, infrastructure, impunity, corruption, poverty and youth education, skill-acquisition, empowerment and employment.
“These are issues of concern to most Nigerians. We all need to join hands to move Nigeria forward. I don’t need to be begged for that.
“Rather, I beg and appeal to those who are begging me to realize that we must put Nigeria’s interest above politics – party or personal – otherwise, we will all be judged at the bar of history if not the bar of current affairs.
” In addition, we must preserve, sustain and deepen democracy and democratic practices,” Obasanjo stated.[/color]

Baba speaking in parables.. grin
I doubt the dunderheads in Abuja would understand you Baba. smiley

When he was in good spirits and wrote his Letter, they threw everything except the kitchen sink at him, and unleashed an avalanche of insults upon the Old Fox. They even enlisted his daughter to add salt to injury! Now the bow is broken, the cradle has fallen, "babies" rolled over and got their skins bruised, and they are rushing back to have their wound tended to by the rejected physician. Indeed.

I see Baba preparing his tools to collect his pound of flesh!! grin

Is only a fool that bites the fingers that feeds him, after Baba OBJ has successfully helped him to power then he started creating enemity with OBJ, what about the likes of Professor Wole Soyinka, Tunde Bakare and thos who matched to aso rock to save his ass when Turai the then first lady locks him and dat fat patience in the kitchen? Today those people are his worst enemy, he is now in strong alliance with those who could not alter a word when the going was tough such as the likes of Edwin clark, and all the AGIP (Any Govt In Power) crew.

All I no is come 2015 Buhari will be the next Nigeria president because in him we have a hope of a better Nigeria

For God so loved Nigeria that he spared the life of Gen. Buhari till 2015, so that who so ever desires progress and Votes for him may not regret but experience the true meaning of leadership where security, food, employment, zero corruption, transparency and infrastructural development prevails.
The number one problem facing Nigeria today is corruption! Fix corruption, and you fix Nigeria. Jonathan has only encouraged and promoted corruption. The ONLY person that is fearless and would ruthlessly cleans this country is General Mohammadu Buhari... Those who hate him have no idea why they do...he remains the most incorruptible ... Fearless... Patriotic and principled leadership figure remaining in Nigeria today. Nigeria may not be able to have the likes of Buhari in another 50years time.
Is only a fool that will continue to do things the same way and expect a different result, So Let's Make The Right Choice.

God Bless Nigeria
God Bless Niger-Delta

All the drama you read in the press is just out of respect for the age of OBJ and to give him false impression of importance. OBJ lost his polling unit in 2011 elections and currently has ZERO electoral value.

Baba u are asking for too much from Jonathan. How do u expect him to do that when they are into the same thing together, someone ruled the country for 4years and has amassed for himself so much to become number six richest president in Africa. One should that Jonathan will only flock with men of like mind. Corruption and criminal association of Nigeria.

Much respect to Baba. A lot of guys here don't understand Obj. He has repeatedly said, that he is a ward card carrying member of Pdp n nothing takes him out Pdp. He works n will work for Pdp but certain things need to be addressed. He has not said he will work against Gej, just anti Jonathan group want to see Jonathan dead before the election. Gej is d leader for today. Stop d insult n give respect to d head. Lets wait to vote him out in 2015, definitely not by Buhari. I am just a neutral observer.
God bless Nigeria.

Mr..man, what is your electoral value? Definitely not as much,as OBJ. Even your single vote can be devalued by mine. Your arrogance and infantile posture is disgusting. You certainly cannot be wiser than David Mark and Muazu or the president who are desperately trying to mend fences. in their own interest whete you are of no consequence.

We all know the beneficiaries of tgis warped democracy and they do not come here to insult our sensibilities. You are literally the tail of the dog and you come here btoadcasting your pedestrian stuff.

Anyway I blame the "otu" that expunged you for either taking the wrong position at reception or behaving like a butt hole.
