Stop Attacks On Obasanjo, Ogun Obas Tell President

Traditional rulers in Ogun State have advised President Goodluck Jonathan to call his men to order in their use of intemperate language , if he wants to make a headway  in next month’s presidential  election.

The Obas are particularly irked  by the persistent abuse of former President Olusegun Obasanjo by those claiming to speak for the president’s campaign team.

The Obas spoke their mind on Friday at a brief meeting  with the president  after the commissioning of the Olorunsogo Power Project in the Ewekoro Local Government of the state.

Obasanjo is a high chief of Owu,Abeokuta, the capital of the state.

At the meeting with the President was the Olowu of Owu,Obasanjo’s quarter,Oba Sanya Dosunmu.

Also present were the Alake of Egbaland and Chairman of the State Council of Traditional Rulers,Oba Oyedotun Gbadebo, the Akarigbo of Remo,Oba  Michael Sonariwo and former governor of the state,Otunba Gbenga Daniel.

Sources close to the meeting said the Obas told Jonathan, who sought their support in the election, that his men were not helping his cause in anyway by their continued insult of Obasanjo.

They said Jonathan would be the ultimate  loser if he failed to rein them in

Obasanjo and Jonathan are locked in a long running battle  with the former President accusing the incumbent of mismanaging the country.

He believes the president  has not done much in the fight against corruption . He also accused him of depleting the nation’s foreign reservesthrough reckless spendings.

Jonathan countered ,saying  that Obasanjo  was behaving like a motor park tout.
