Founder of the Atiku Kawai Media Group, AbdulRasheed Shehu, has said that former President Olusegun Obasanjo is still very bitter that former vice president Atiku Abubakar frustrated his tenure elongation agenda, otherwise known as ‘the Third Term Agenda’ in 2007
Reacting to Obasanjo who said yesterday that he made mistake in selecting Atiku as his deputy, but that it was a genuine mistake in the end, AbdulRasheed, in a tweet, said that Obasanjo is “still bitter” that Atiku frustrated his tenure elongation agenda, otherwise known as the ‘Third Term Agenda’ in 2007.
AbdulRasheed Shehu, who is a member of the Atiku Abubakar presidential election technical committee, tweeted: “surprisingly, OBJ is still bitter about his failed 3rd term agenda. Although the PDP family holds him in high esteem, his recent statement is unbecoming. Had @atiku not fought that selfish and unconditional drive, Yar’adua, Jonathan, and Buhari wouldn’t have sniffed the presidency,”
Obasanjo had said: “One of the mistakes I made was picking my number two when I wanted to become the president. But because it was a genuine mistake, God saved me.”
