Reasons why I picked Jonathan instead of Odili as Late Yar'Adua's Vice President during his time- Obansanjo Unviels

Ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo has uncovered why he picked Goodluck Jonathan rather than the man who had battled, Peter Odili, as President Umaru Yar'adua's running mate. 

Proceeding from the book, Baba Obasanjo affirmed that Odili, a former Governor of Rivers, was his first decision as Yar'adua's running mate, however a few obstacles made it conceivable...Of course, Jonathan was not my first choice as running mate to Yar’Adua; it was Dr. Peter Odili. But whether by fate or some conspiracy, Odili had hurdles that made it impossible for him to take that position. That was how I settled for Jonathan,” Obasanjo said.

The political power-play between 2016 and 2017 was very interesting, to say the least.
