Obasanjo knelt to beg Ghadaffi, used me to wreck Atiku’s presidential ambition – Fayose


Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State has alleged that former President, Olusegun Obasanjo knelt down to beg late Libyan dictator, Moummar Ghaddafi to support his tthird term agenda while in office.

Fayose disclosed that despite Obasanjo going down on his knee to beg Gadaffi in Tripoli, the late dictator treated him like “serf.”

Speaking with The Interview, the Chairman of Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Governors’ Forum said, “It was such a pathetic scenario, so shameful. Obasanjo was speaking rapidly like a parrot. I was shocked beyond words. I never knew Obasanjo would be that humble.
“He was on one knee till the end of the conversation. Ghadaffi kept quiet and was just watching Obasanjo. When Obasanjo stopped rambling, Ghadaffi said, ‘Have you finished? Just know that I will not attend that meeting. I have other engagements.”

Fayose also disclosed how the two-time President used him to allegedly wreck the presidential ambition of former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar.

The governor recalled how on two major occasions when he went to visit then Abubakar at the height Obasanjo’s third term bid, security details promptly reported him to the former president, even before he left the venue.

He noted that the situation left him feeling “spooky and vulnerable.”

“Obasanjo told me that when you capture a general and you don’t kill him, he’ll come back and kill you; that since Atiku tried to stop him and failed, he must pay for it. And he (Atiku) is still paying for it,” Fayose said.
