WHY I BEGGED OBASANJO-OKUPE

okupe-objDr Doyin Okupe,  former Senior Special Assistant to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan on Media and Publicity, has said that he visited ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo, at his residence where he  kissed and prostrated before him on Sunday. Okupe made this known in a Facebook post on Friday.

Okupe, who once served under Obasanjo said their relationship turned sour after he began working for Jonathan.

Okupe said, “Last Sunday , in the company of some friends I met with Baba Obasanjo principally to try and settle and resolve the misunderstanding that has existed between baba and I since I joined the Jonathan administration.

“Vintage baba, he descended on me heavily and vented his anger copiously. I prostrated and held his feet as a well trained Yoruba man and pleaded earnestly for his forgiveness, occasionally given short explanations for areas I considered my actions were misunderstood.

“Also typical of baba, ever willing to forgive a repentant son, we embraced; I even kissed him as a loving son.

“Politics sometimes is such a bad business, you hurt your friends and even benefactors, but all is well that ends well.”

It will be recalled that during the build-up to the last presidential election, Obasanjo had openly criticised Jonathan.
