How Obasanjo Drags Oyedepo & Adeboye Into Meeting With Jonathan

obasanjo jonathan meeting

Jan 13, 2015 – How Obasanjo Drags Bishop David Oyedepo & Pastor Adeboye Into Meeting With Jonathan At His Home

Chief Olusegun have been described as ‘cunny’ so many times by his foes and even his friends will tell you he can be dramatic. ‘Hide and Seek’ aptly described how former President Obasanjo eventually met with

President Goodluck Jonathan who paid him a visit in Abeokuta yesterday.
A reliable source while recounting how the drama unfolded account said the moment baba Iyabo confirmed President Jonathan had arrived Abeokuta, he (former President Obasanjo) left his palatial Hilltop building in Abeokuta. Apart from being driven ‘out’ in his black SUV and one security Hilux when he should be ‘in’ to welcome president Jonathan, Obasanjo also an, shunned his main entrance and made use of his private gate in case they meet at the gate..hehehe see drama.

While Chief Obasanjo was jetting out, President Jonathan was also taking his time at the presidential lodge in Abeokuta, to ‘rest’ after his political campaign held at the stadium, where he met Ogun State potential voters.

A source close to Obasanjo’s Hilltop mansion in Abeokuta had earlier confided in Vanguard that President Jonathan was not in Obasanjo’s itinerary for the day at all. He also hinted that Obasanjo jetted out around 2: 59 p.m few minutes after the helicopter that flew the President to the state, touched down. Operatives of the Department of State Service (DSS) who had earlier besieged Obasanjo’s Hilltop mansion as early as 6a.m in anticipation of President Jonathan’s arrival also left the place at exactly 3.10p.m when it became obvious that Jonathan was not coming.

But President Jonathan and Baba Iyabo eventually met. At night! A closed-door meeting was held between the two leaders starting from around 7.00pm. General Overseer of Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adeboye and the Founder, Winners Chapel, Bishop David Oyedepo, were allegedly part of the meeting; part of the conditions Obasanjo gave to hold any talk with President Jonathan.

Obasanjo, recently came down hard on Jonathan accusing his administration of squandering $55 billion crude oil savings and reserves. Jonathan had in turn promised to expose what former leaders and heads of state failed to do while in office that stunted the country’s socio-economic growth. He later added that some leaders were behaving like motor park touts, a comment that was perceived to be aimed at Obasanjo.

The last night meeting however ended at 9.53pm without official statement from both parties.

Jonathan woos Ogun voters At the Abeokuta rally, he promised to create additional eight million jobs for Nigerian youths in the next four years, if re-elected. While referring to Gen. Mohammadu’s Buhari’s assertion that if elected, he would ensure that all guilty corrupt persons are jailed, Jonathan said:

“It is my prayer that a time will come in Nigeria that there will be no single prison in the country.” You have a choice to vote for those who will build more prisons for you or my administration which will build more schools for you.”

      I believe the two respected Men of God, Pastor Enoch Adeboye and Bishop David Oyedepo accompanied GEJ to visit OBJ because of their love for the nation.It may interest you to know that Men of God are peace makers.

    I am just sick and tired of this block head called a president, How will you think of having a country without a prison, Even in the Bible there was a prison where Paul and Silas were locked even they were Innocent, Denmark and Norway the most peaceful country in the world gat prisons even with a zero crime rate. How will this slow being think of not having prison in Nigeria, Infact this shows this guy is scared of this prison stuff than anything. Jonathan you and your linage will serve your time in Jail . No he his promising 8 million jobs to 60 Million youths what happens to the 52 million. This guy is just too empty for my liking. He has never displayed no good sense of thought, Just a left axis school boy.

    My fellow Nigerians with good intention for this country let us face the fact and not allow sentiment to ruin our senses. President Goodluck Jonathan has done well. Forget all the lies, propagandas, mudslinging and political chauvinism being peddled by the APC and their agents. Do you know that GEJ admin. is the most transparent admin as long as the history of this country is concern? Do you know that with the signing of the Freedom of Information bill(FOI) into law by GEJ,the yearly budget and all government spending are virtually in the public domain? And that is why we hear about this noise about food, aircraft etc. Have you ever ask yourself how much that had gone in time past with Nigerians knowing nothing about? Can even Buhari account for all he spent when he was in government? Can he account for his defense budget, security vote? That apart
    Let us look at the roads. I have traveled from PH to Lagos in the past and I know what the roads use to look like. I was able to visit Lagos during the yuletide period and I traveled en rout from Onitsha through the Benin /Ore road. I remember how we us to spend hours(at time we sleep over) on that road. The East/ West road in PH is now motorable. Now u can travel from Uniport to Lagos. Do U know how much that went down in the past on that road without meaningful achievement? I went to visit a friend at Woji(PH) and for the first time in my whole life I was able to see a ‘life train’, ‘moving train!’ The are real not hearsay. Was Buhari able to construct one rail track when he was there?
    Again,Do U know how much that has gone down in fighting this boko haram insurgency(which Buhari and some mischievous northern elders fueled) since inception? Suppose that same amount was channeled into the development of our infrastructure, do u know how far Nigeria would have gone? That apart.
    Apart from killing, arresting, and imprisoning people, what can Buhari really boast of that he did during his reign in governance? Apart from now that he is seek for an elect did he condemn these people that have drained the blood out of the life of our brothers and sister? No! Rather he was defending them.
    Please let us look at this issue more critically, if this man, buhari really love this country as he want us to assume, what has he done in the past to help in bringing to and end to this senseless killing? Is he waiting to get to government before he will do anything to that? If that is the case, it then means that he is banking on this killing into to achieve his selfish ambition. Which also means he has no vision for this country, his vision is just the taste for power. I read over the news few days ago that he plan to create 720000 jobs in one year and I laughed. The questions that came to my mind was it is not about giving us figures, how does he intend to achieve this? and I was shock I could not find any plan from all he said. When he was in power was he able to create quarter the number of that kind of jobs? Was buhari able to build schools? Today, despite this insurgency, GEJ has been able to build over100 Amajiri schools for the north and unity schools in the south, 12 Federal Universities(with nine in the north and three in south)
    When the renegade PDP members were defecting to APC buhari told Nigerians that when elected he ll not probe the past government as he ll b busy providing for the needs of Nigerians. Now that he has these people fully in his grip, he went on to contradict himself by saying in PH “when elected, all corrupt leaders will be jailed in Kirikiri prison.” Which indirectly means that his perceive corrupt leaders are those in PDP and this also mean that Buhari is seeking power in order to punish his perceived enemies and that if Buhari take over power from GEJ(God forbid) he ll spend his four years in government chasing perceive enemies with no meaningful achievement for our country. I believe that Nigerians are not daft to mortgage their Life in the Deep Blue Sea. PLEASE I WRITE FOR THE LITERATE MINDS

    **** and *****, 2 of you idiots can hear yourself talking right? OBJ, himself is the greatest problem Nigeria have until someone cap his head which i know will happen soon , Nigeria will never be the same or survive. Just one question, why is this old man still moving around causing problems in Nigeria political scene? Second of all Jonathan God knows he will will his second term and i wonder where all of you will be then? Remember most of you are chicken, when it starts to rains, this time it will affect every one. No hiding no runing. Obj is the biggest palaver , he is like a cancer and must be capped.

    That is why Goodluck can not rule Nigeria again because he will bread more armed robbers, kidnappers and more Boko haram since prosecuting people is not part of his administration. God will never allow him to come back again as a president . He has failed Nigeria.

    Between GEJ & GMB,who is an illiterate or semi-illiterate? look at the way GEJ talk and you will agree with me that he is so naive, the brain is so shallow to the extent that he is not a rational human being.
    I won’t blame him because failure can push someone to reason anti clockwise.
    He is not only praying that there won’t be prison in this country rather he is saying there won’t be law and order in this country anymore.
    That is the more reason this man most be voted out because I can’t imagine how a country will be without law and order. Without Law and Order, there won’t be violation and as well there won’t be imprisonment.
    GEJ and all the political thieves are afraid of the unknown.
    Change is inevitable.

    Thank God for these men of God who stays close to our leaders, giving them directions that will bring God’s favor and peace on our country Nigeria. With these, there are a lot of hope for the Nation! Quite different scenario from the former practice of leaders consulting whoredom and satanic alters in pursuit for power and position. Bravo! for the courage displayed so far!

    Some men of God have turned to full time Politicians instead being truthful and make their grievances known to Jonathan administration about his bad governance, they are just acting in concert with the present government. All men of god that I know always stand for Justice but not our men of God in Nigeria. I don’t understand how they cannot be economical with truth.
