“…I should bring up Nasir el Rufai here because of the greatest insults he piled on me in his book ‘Accidental Public Servant’ on the issue of 3rd term.
“Nasir’s penchant for reputation damaging is almost pathological. Why does he do it? He is brilliant and smart. …..I appreciated his brilliance and acknowledged his weaknesses; the worst being his inability to be loyal to any person or issue for long….
“I believe he can still be used for public service under guidance, making allowance for ‘his petite size and his elephantine brain’
“He was described as a malicious liar. He was more than that ; he is a pathological purveyor of untruths and half truths with no regards to integrity ……..”

OBJ On 3rd term
“…..if my NASS liaison Ita-Giwa and my attorney general Bayo Ojo were neither overtly or covertly asked to work on 3rd term , how can I be charged with maneuvering or planning for 3rd time?
“Those regarded as influential and have publicly accused me of maneuvering for 3rd time include Atiku , a blatant and shameless liar…….; El Rufai , a brilliant man, economical with the truth and without substantiating his claim in his book and has a track record of a turncoat ( vide his behavior against his foster father Zayyad and later Atiku). The other was Condelliza Rice who must have received her information from the Nigerian media or US Embassy….”

This OBJ man lies to himself! Everybody is evil except archangel OBJ!
“…..That night I settled for Atiku Abubakar. Some of the reasons were : he worked hard for the project, he never indicated interest in the job to me, he worked closely with Shehu……..What I did not know, which came out glaringly later, was his parental background which was somewhat shadowy, his propensity to corruption, his tendency to disloyalty, his inability to say and stick to the truth all the time …….and reliance on marabouts….”

“…Only once had I ever contemplated suicide. This was what to do to prevent being captured alive: when Biafran soldiers reached Ore in the West and strong rumors had it that some of the Ojeshas , who traditionally were members of NCNC, tended to see the war as political……upon learning that I …embarked on some reversal measures , and felt if the reversal measures failed, then I had to be a man rather than be a prisoner to be paraded by Biafrans.”
