Doyin Okupe Mends Relationship With Obasanjo – Politician Doyin Okupe has revealed on his Facebook page that he has mended his relationship with former president Olusegun Obasanjo.
Okupe, who was the Senior Special Assistant on Public Affairs to former president Goodluck Jonathan, had fallen out with Obasanjo during Jonathan’s re-election campaign.
Okupe wrote on his Facebook that he prostrated before Obasanjo and apologized for all his misdeeds, and even kissed the former president. Okupe was Special Assistant on Media & Publicity to President Obasanjo when he was President.
He wrote: “Last sunday , in the company of some friends I met with Baba Obasanjo principally to try and settle and resolve the misunderstanding that has existed between Baba and I since I joined the Jonathan’s 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, u hurt your friends and even benefactors, but its all that is well that ends well.”
