Dr. Doyin Okupe, the Senior Special Adviser on Media and Publicity to former president Goodluck Jonathan says he kissed and prostrated before former President, Olusegun Obasanjo, while he paid him visit at Otta farm.
Okupe made the statement on his Facebook page on Friday. He once served under Obasanjo but the relationship took other side when he started working for Jonathan second term agenda.
Many will remember how Obasanjo openly opposed Jonathan’s ambition to run for second term in office
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.”
