The task to oust Jonathan has been accomplished, that's the reason Obasanjo was present. He only went there to mock Jonathan (the outgoing President). Immediately Jonathan steps out of Aso Rock, Obasanjo would be more respected than him because he completed his two terms while Jonah was ousted. Difference dey!!! cheesy grin
