I Accept Forgiveness By Obasanjo—Atiku

Some days ago Former President of Nigeria, Olusegun Obasanjo during the Northern Youth Leaders Forum, NLYF stated that he has forgiven Atiku Abubakar of whatever offence he might have committed as his Vice-president.

Atiku Abubakar who said he has accepted Obasanjo's forgiveness thanked his former boss, yesterday, while urging Nigerians to emulate such kind of forgiving spirit as shown by the former President.
Abubakar who was Obasanjo's vice president between 1999 and 2007 was believed to have dashed Obasanjo's third-term plans in 2006 said that regardless of one's disagreement with his former boss, its certain Obasanjo is the committed and has the best interest of the country.

He also commended "Obasanjo, his former boss for taking this bold and Godly step in the interest of the nation and humanity."

Atiku, in a statement, said forgiveness should be the country's motto: ''Forgiveness is divinely inspired and is an oil that lubricates the wheels of continued human interactions and engagements."
He also urged politicians to learn from the words of Mahatma Ghandi that an eye for an eye would make "our nation go blind. "When I made a similar effort few years ago, it was on the conviction that it would not be beneficial to me before Allah, if I went to the grave with bitterness. Let us forgive one another so that we can team up for national rebirth."
