The Peoples Democratic Party said it was apparent that President Muhammadu Buhari and the All Progressives Congress were already regretting that Obasanjo had withdrawn his support for them.
It said both Buhari and his party were full of praises for the former President when he was leading their campaign in 2015.
National Chairman of the PDP, Prince Uche Secondus, who spoke with one of our correspondents, said the President and the APC in 2015 described Obasanjo as their navigator.
He said, “This is what we have been saying. This is a government of use and dump. They have no memories. When they put on their uniforms and went to beg Baba at Abeokuta shortly before the last election, they were happy to have his support.
“Now that they have disappointed the former President and the majority of Nigerians, they don’t care about his support anymore.
“This is a government that doesn’t rely on the vote of the people. They want to rig, but Nigerians will reject them.”
Secondus also said that the PDP during its campaigns, would expose the method which he alleged the ruling party was relying on to win the elections.
On his part, the Director-General of the Voice of Nigeria, Osita Okechukwu, said the 2019 general election would be a battle for Nigeria’s soul.
Okechukwu spoke while receiving members of the Buhari National Student Support Group in his office, on Monday.
In response to allegations of incompetence levelled against the Buhari All Progressives Congress administration by former President Olusegun Obasanjo, the VON DG said, “It is because there has not been an investigation into how Obasanjo suddenly became wealthy.
“If questions were asked about how a man who in 1998 was brought out of prison and asked to contest the Presidency and he said he didn’t have money and today, he is the owner of several business concerns, including Bells University, perhaps, Nigeria would be the better for it.”
