Jesus as a man was imperfect, and so is Atiku —Obasanjo.
Former President Olusegun #Obasanjo said he did not expect perfection from ex-Vice President Atiku Abubakar, saying that even Jesus Christ, as a man, was not perfect.
He said he could vouch for Atiku, the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, to re-position the country.
Obasanjo made the statement in Lagos while speaking at the 2019 Island Club Quarterly Business Lecture.
Obasanjo, in his remark, said he believed that Atiku had the experience, the capacity and passion to move the country forward, urging Nigerians to no longer find his support for the former vice president strange, considering what he said or wrote about him in the past.
He reiterated that he stood firmly by whatever he said in the past about Atiku and President Muhammadu #Buhari. He, however, said the PDP candidate had demonstrated what was expected of a committed and sincere leader by owing up to his past mistakes and showing remorse.
Obasanjo added that Atiku had not only apologised to his political party and the nation, but he had also apologised to him for the past disagreements he had with him (Obasanjo) when he served as his deputy.
