CONTROVESIAL LETTER: South-West PDP Chieftain Challenges Obasanjo Over His Letter

As the face-off between the former President, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo and the incumbent President, Dr. Goodluck Jonathan heightens, a chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party in the South West, High Chief Abiola Ogundokun has challenged  Chief Obasanjo to give proofs of the allegations leveled against the President.
He said the onus lies on whoever raises such destructive and inciting allegations against anyone to prove them.
“If he fails to prove all the allegations against the president, Nigerians would take him to be a liar,” he said.
Chief Ogundokun, who spoke with newsmen on diverse national issues, faulted the contents and the channel through which the 18-page letter  was sent, said the patriotism that Chief Obasanjo “always claims leaves much to be desired by the way he made the letter public.
“What patriotism is in someone speaking about breaking up Nigeria when he should be working for the unity of the country,” he added.
