Ex Nigeria President Goodluck Jonathan has described his predecessor President Olusegun Obasanjo as the “boss of bosses.”
According to him, any politician who ignores the elder statesman does so at his peril.
The immediate past president said the chances of former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar were bright in the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, but noted that he would need the endorsement of Obasanjo. Jonathan said:
“He (Atiku) can’t get the APC ticket. If Atiku gets our party ticket, he would compete well.
“He’s always a passionate politician. 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.”
