God will never forgive me if I support Atiku for president- Obasanjo

Former President Olusegun Obasanjo said on Friday that former Vice President Atiku Abubakar should not count on him for support in his latest bid to become the president of Nigeria.
.
.
According to a report by Premiumtimes, Obasanjo hinged his blistering position on the unsavoury corruption perception of Mr Atiku. “How can I be on the same side with Atiku?” Mr Obasanjo asked. “To do what?”
.
.
“If I support Atiku for anything, God will not forgive me. If I do not know, yes. But once I know, Atiku can never enjoy my support. I do not have personal grudges with anyone. If you do not do well for Nigeria, you do not do well for all of us.”
.
.
It is not a question of working with or not working with an individual. If you are working for the good of Nigeria, I am working with you. If you are not working for the good of Nigeria it does not matter who you are I am not working with you.
.
.
Most of you do not understand the way I operate. I know Atiku very well. And I have mentioned my position with Atiku. My position has not changed,” he said.
.
.
On a personal note, he added, “If my children are getting married, he has sent representatives. If his children are getting married, I have sent representatives. That is social. That is not political.
.
.
But “on political ground, my position has not changed. If I support Atiku for a political office other than the one I supported him in the past when I did not know him,” maybe, but not “now that I know him, God will not forgive me.”
