Goodluck Jonathan has advised former Vice President Atiku Abubakar to seek Olusegun Obasanjo’s help to secure the presidential ticket of the Peoples Democratic Party.
According to a report from The Nation, Jonathan said Atiku must beg or apologize to ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo to get the 2019 presidential ticket of the PDP on a platter of gold.
“If Atiku gets our party ticket, he would compete well. But he would have to reach out to our boss, Baba OBJ, the boss of all bosses. We’ve all learnt at different times that you ignore OBJ at your peril. OBJ has the magic wand. He is respected at home and abroad”, he reportedly said.
However, it’s unknown if Atiku has either accepted the condition or opted to go it alone in seeking the presidential mandate of the PDP.
