Former President, Olusegun Obasanjo has said his former deputy, Atiku Abubakar and presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), deserves to be celebrated.

Obasanjo said this at the turbaning of Atiku as the seventh Wazirin Adamawa by the Lamido of Adamawa, Mustapha Barkindo.

He also hailed his former deputy, for jointly dealing with national and international affairs with him, while they were at the helms of affairs.

“Even when we were in Abuja and we were dealing with national and international affairs, you did not take it lightly the cultural affairs at home.

“So, you more than deserve this celebration and I will plead that the way you had carried the office you held in the past, you will carry the one that you have now. No matter what responsibility you may have at the national or the international level, east or west, home is the best.

“If the occasion we are having today is an acknowledgement that home has given to you and you must do everything to show the home that you appreciate the honour that has been done to you,” Obasanjo said.
