Ado Ekiti - Gov. Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State has urged former President Olusegun Obasanjo to stop his repeated verbal attacks on the immediate past President, Goodluck Jonathan, reports Newsday.
The governor, who expressed concerns over Obasanjo’s comments on the administration of Jonathan while delivering the 11th Convocation Lecture at the Benson Idahosa University, Benin City, noted that Jonathan is no longer the President of Nigeria and should be allowed to live a private life devoid of mudslinging from elder statesmen like Obasanjo.

Fayose in a statement issued by his Special Assistant on Public Communication, Lere Olayinka, in Ado-Ekiti, said Obasanjo should stop running other Nigerians down.
Fayose stated that the people of the South-South had already demonstrated their approval of Jonathan’s performance while in office by voting overwhelmingly for him on March 28 despite the gang-up orchestrated by Obasanjo and his allies.
Fayose said since Obasanjo openly destroyed his Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) membership card, he was free to go about seeking relevance in the All Progressives Congress (APC) without running anyone down.
