While it counselled the former president to be wary of his newly found friends in the APC saying they are only hobnobbing with him to use and dump in “their over ambitious quest to take power at the centre.”

In a statement by the state publicity secretary, Mr Taofik Gani, the party said, “as much as we can apply the constitutional interpretation to the wish to mean that every four years is new mandate/Administration, we will not overlook the possible mischief in the wish that the present president should not continue in May”.

According to the party, the persistent antagonism of President Jonathan by Chief Obasanjo is, “unfair, destructive and unbecoming of a supposed elder statesman.”

The party stated that, “this is more so as president Jonathan has remained calm, unprovoked and focused.”
