Retired Politician Tony AnenihTells How He Stopped Former VP Atiku From Becoming President

Former chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Board of Trustee, Tony Anenih, has revealed that he stopped former Vice-President, Atiku Abubakar, from being President.

Anenih, who has announced he is stepping out of politics, said this in his book titled ‘My Life and Nigerian Politics’, which was presented in Abuja on Saturday.

He explained that Atiku wanted to become the President, when former President Olusegun Obasanjo was contesting for a second term.

“As a result of my preparations for Chief Obasanjo’s second tenure, I stepped on the toes of many of those who did not want him to seek a second term. These are the people I can now refer to as members of the ‘G3’. These were General Ibrahim Babangida, (ex-) Vice- President Atiku Abubakar and the (ex-) National Security Adviser, General Aliu Gwarzo,” Anenih said.

“There was no other way I could have offended the vice-president other than that I prevented him from being PDP’s presidential candidate in the 2003 presidential election. He erroneously believed that he was the only politician at the Villa and that he was better qualified than the President. I was well ahead of him in all his plans to prevent Chief Obasanjo from running (for re-election).”

Anenih also claimed he recommended Atiku as Vice-President, after he had just won the Adamawa State governorship election.

He added: “I asked Obasanjo whether he would want a vice-president that would give him absolute confidence and allow him to sleep with his two eyes closed or whether he would want a vice-president he did not trust.

“He answered that he would like to sleep with his two eyes closed. It was at this point that I asked him: ‘What about Atiku?’ Chief Obasanjo’s answer was that Atiku had just won his governorship election and the law might not allow him to come on board as his running mate.

“We both decided to get a lawyer to advise us and Barrister Alimi Rasaq of Kwara State was sent for. He advised us that there was nothing in the constitution that prevented Atiku from being his running mate; especially as Atiku had not been sworn in.”
