Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has gone down the memory lane to explain why he opposed the second term bid of former President Goodluck Jonathan in the 2015 polls.
One of the reasons, according to Obasanjo, is the way Jonathan was handling the war against Boko Haram forces, and his handling of the state matters within the context of Ijaw interests.
The former president, speaking at a book launch in Abuja, also recalled the insistence of Jonathan to go for a second term in office, in violation of the one term agreement he reached with top northern leaders, ahead of the 2011 presidential poll
Obasanjo said he stood by the agreement with the northern leaders, when Jonathan on the eve of the 2015 polls, enlisted the support of Pastors Enoch Adeboye and Bishop David Oyedepo at a meeting held at his Hilltop Mansion in Abeokuta on January 12, 2015.
In the run up to the 2015 presidential poll, Obasanjo said he opposed Jonathan’s bid for re-election, and did not support Buhari, adding that Buhari was just a beneficiary of his campaign against Jonathan.
