Spotted at the burial ceremony of the mother of Governor David Umahi of Ebonyi state which held last weekend was the former president of Nigeria, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo and Patience Jonathan, the wife of the immediate past Nigerian president, Goodluck Jonathan.
The event, which took place at Uburu community in Ohaozara local government area of the state, brought together dignitaries from within and outside the country as the venue of the event was filled to capacity with sympathizers including men of God from different denominations as well as top Nigerian politicians both from the ruling and the opposition party.
As pictured in the photos posted on Facebook by IfeanyiCy Njoku, Obasanjo and Patience Jonathan were seen engaged in a close ‘romantic’ dance and hug, an act which i’m sure will come as a surprise to many Nigerians considering the fact that Obasanjo did not support Jonathan’s bid for second term during the 2015 presidential election.
With this I now believe that there are truly no permanent enemies in politics! It is only fools and blind followers that go about fighting and killing themselves in the defence of their choice political candidates because even after you are dead, these people keep their private relationships going having learned to separate it from their political interests. No wonder it is usually said that politics is a game!
