PPA cautions Jonathan over Obasanjo

The Progressive Peoples Alliance, PPA, has said that in view of former President Olusegun  Obasanjo’s antecedents,  it has become necessary to warn President Goodluck Jonathan to be careful the way he listens to Obasanjo because it is already evident that Obasanjo has a strong hold on the government of Dr. Jonathan.

PPA’s National Publicity Secretary, Chief Ben Onyechere, in a statement in Akwa, Anambra State said, “Obasanjo will certainly deny Jonathan at some point the way he denied Yar’Adua while pretending to support a Jonathan Presidency. The hurry in withdrawing the suit against Nuhu Ribadu smacks of dishonour for Yar’Adua and weakness on the side of Jonathan.

“The only way Jonathan can be taken seriously is when he brings Obasanjo to book for the atrocities he committed against this nation. No foreign country will take your anti-corruption crusade seriously when you have not brought the chairman of corruption to book.

“Already it is known that Jonathan consults Obasanjo in every appointment, such that all the fundamental  achievements of Yar’Adua are being derogated and decimated because Yar’Adua decided to be his own man against Obasanjo’s expectation.

 “The reason every body is mourning Yar’Adua is because he was less depen-dent on Obasanjo, and his anti-people activities. That Obasanjo nominated Jonathan for Vice President is not enough ground for control.”
