I made a mistake with my choice of vice president in 1999- Obasanjo - SolaceBase

Former President Olusegun Obasanjo on Saturday said one of his mistakes in life was picking former Vice President Atiku Abubakar as his running mate during the 1999 Presidential election.

Obasanjo, who described Atiku’s choice as his Vice President as one of his genuine mistakes said despite making the mistake, God saved him in the end.

The former President made the disclosure while answering questions, posed by students on the sideline of an event in Abeokuta, the Ogun state capital.

Galaxytv John Felix reports that Obasanjo and his former number two man, Atiku had a running battle during the build-up to the 2003 elections.

It is believed that Atiku, who is now contesting the number seat on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) worked against the third term ambition of Obasanjo and this led to the former President not supporting Atiku in his Presidential ambition.

Obasanjo, while reminiscencing on his life and achievements both as Military Head of State and a civilian President, said he had made many genuine mistakes in his life, but God made him to overcome.
