Doyin Okupe, ex-aide to former President Goodluck Jonathan, has revealed how he begged former President Olusegun Obasanjo for forgiveness.
Okupe, who had worked under Obasanjo, had severally hurled insults at the former president during the re-election campaign of Jonathan.
The seeming ‘son’ and ‘father’ relationship between the two grew colder, especially with Obasanjo not favourably disposed to Jonathan’s re-election.
According to Premium Times, the reconciliation meeting took place last Sunday at Obasanjo’s Hilltop G.R.A. residence in Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital
It was gathered that when Okupe arrived Obasanjo’s residence, he was initially prevented form entering the premises until the former President told his security operatives to allow him in.
It was also reported that Obasanjo had rejected Okupe’s apology, saying “you cannot abuse me in the papers, on TV, on radio and on the streets and then come here to privately apologise.”
“Why don’t you mount the same platforms you used in abusing me to apologise to me?” Obasanjo was quoted as saying.
