Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State on Saturday advised former President Olusegun Obasanjo to emulate statesmen like former Head of State, General Abdusalami Abubakar who works behind the scene diligently for the stability of the country.
He said that aside working for peace, stability and development of the nation, statesmen like Abubakar do not see themselves as saints while others are devils.
Fayose, who is also the Chairman of the PDP Governors’ Forum, gave the advice in a parley with reporters after a visit to General Abubakar in his residence in Abuja.
He said, “Former President Olusegun Obasanjo must take a cue from somebody like General Abdusalami Abubakar who is working for the unity and stability of the country.
“President Obasanjo must behave like a true statesman.
“President Obasanjo’s major weakness is that he does not see anything good in other people or what they do except what he does himself”.
Fayose commended General Abubakar for the roles he played before and after the 2015 general elections in Nigeria.
He outlined some of the legacy projects his administration is executing despite the economic recession in the country.
Responding, General Abubakar congratulated Fayose on his election as the Chairman of the PDP Governors’ Forum.
He said he has been reading about Fayose’s activities as a leading opposition figure in Nigeria.
He added that democracy needs a virile opposition to thrive and make progress and commended Fayose for the various development projects being executed in Ekiti State.
