Former President Olusegun Obasanjo and former senior special assistant to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan on public affairs, Doyin Okupe, have reportedly reconciled.
Okupe made the disclosure saying that he kissed the former president at a meeting where they reconciled. Okupe, who also worked under Obasanjo, said the elder statesman scolded him before pardoning him.
During the reelection campaign of Jonathan, which Obasanjo was not favourably disposed to, Okupe criticised his former boss publicly.
But he said he has apologised to “Baba”
He wrote on his Facebook page on Friday:
“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’s 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 its all that is well that ends well.”
