“I don’t harbour any grudge against my former boss. Yes, we had disagreements in office. These were mere disagreements. I harbour no hatred or enmity against him or anybody. I never had anything against him and I will never have,” Atiku said.
“Politics is not war,” he added.
Former VP Atiku spoke on Tuesday, in Abuja, when he granted audience to the leaders of the Northern Youth Leaders Forum, a group that embarked on a mission to settle the quarrel between him and Obasanjo.
The group, led by Eliot Afiyo, had weeks back met with Obasanjo in his Ota farm, in Ogun State, during which the ex-President announced that he had forgiven his former deputy.
Atiku thanked the group for successfully brokering peace between him and Obasanjo, and added that this single effort had marked the leaders of the youth organisation as serious-minded people, fully prepared to take over the leadership of the country from their seniors.
