Jesus, the only messiah I know was imperfect – Obasanjo

Former President Olusegun Obasanjo says Atiku Abubakar, presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), never claimed to be a saint and he never described him as such.

Obasanjo said this when he led Atiku and other PDP leaders to Island Club, Lagos, on Wednesday.

The elite club marked its 75th anniversary.

Obasanjo said as a Christian, the only Messiah he has is Jesus Christ and that the man aspect of Him was imperfect while the divine aspect of Him was perfectly messianic.

“Atiku never claimed to be a saint and I never described him as such. I will never so describe any human being alive let alone calling him a Messiah,” he said.

“On an occasion in the past when I said that someone was not a Messiah, some Nigerians out of bad belle were up in arms. For me, as a Christian, the only Messiah I know and have is Jesus Christ and even then, the man aspect of Him was imperfect while the divine aspect of Him was perfectly messianic.

“I must reiterate that Atiku is not a saint and who is? But from what I know of Atiku, he will be a performer in all respects. I can say that again from my personal experience.”
