I kissed, prostrated before Obasanjo during my last visit, says Okupe

A former Senior Special Assistant to immediate past President, Goodluck Jonathan on Media and Publicity, Dr. Doyin Okupe, says he kissed and prostrated before former president, Olusegun Obasanjo, on his recent visit to Otta farm.

He disclosed this via a Facebook post on Friday.

Okupe, who once served under Obasanjo had claimed that their relationship turned sour after he started working for Jonathan’s second term.

Many will recall that during the build-up to the last presidential election, Obasanjo had openly criticised Jonathan.

Obasanjo had alleged that Jonathan had recruited a team of snipers and also said Jonathan was afraid that the then presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Muhammadu Buhari, would jail him if he won.

In response, Okupe had publicly condemned Obasanjo while defending Jonathan.

But speaking on his Sunday’s visit to Obasanjo, he said, “Last Sunday , in the company of some friends, I met with Baba Obasanjo principally to try and settle and resolve the misunderstanding that had 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.”



  1. And am aware the visit was on a strategy to form a parallel PDP leadership to frustrate the yerima led team.

    The elders of PDP led by Gerry gana and Okupe can not generate 20,000 votes from nigerians. So the main PDP shouldn’t be worried at all.

    The best thing left for them is to join APC and that’s what it will finally result. Obj visit is to negotiate on their behalf.

  2. Hungry so quick Mr Doyin Okupe? Baba (OBJ) has said it before and in less than one year its happening. You are looking for soft landing for the arms money you collected for campaign. OBJ may forgive u but Nigeria will not if you took part of the blood money even if Nigeria did the spirit of the dead victims of Boko-haram will not.
