A Former Nigerian Senate President, Ayim Pius Ayim, had on Friday during an interview on Channels Television Politics Today said he had no grudge or personal loggerheads with former President Olusegun Obasanjo.

Ayim Pius in his appraisal of the former Nigerian president said Olusegun Obasanjo was someone who has always remained focused and determined in his activities.

“(Former) President Obasanjo was a very outstanding President Nigeria ever had. President Obasanjo was focused and determined in all that he wanted to do.”

Pius Anyim, who succeeded Chuba Okadigbo as the Senate President in August 2000 after the latter had been impeached – at a time when Obasanjo was president.

He represented Ebonyi South, held the position until May 2003, but with disagreement between the legislature and the executive, which led to a rift between the duo with purported impeachment plots.

Below are the exact words of the former Senate President, Ayim Pius Ayim during the interview on Channels Television Politics on Friday and I quote:

“We had a little disagreement, and it was the National Assembly and the Executive; not Pius Ayim and (former) President Obasanjo. What brought about the problem was a motion moved by Senator Idris Abubakar from Gombe, it wasn’t a motion moved by me,” he explained.

“It was the action taken in the Senate that the former President was reacting to, and it was friction between National Assembly and the Executive.

“Of course, being the head of the legislature, I cannot run away from it; I was leading the legislature and he (Obasanjo) was leading the Executive on the other hand, but there was nothing personal.”
