This is an interesting story unfolding in Malaysia. Picture below is Aziza wife of Jailed opposition leader Anwar and Mahathir who first jailed Anwar, then his Deputy on charges of Sodomy and graft leading to a bitter feud
In 2006 as President Obasanjo was preparing his exit, we had a conversation where I raised the issue that his feud with his Vice President @atiku appears similar to Mahathir and Anwar. He told me a foreign diplomat had told him so too and advised him to be careful
Mahathir choose Abdullahi Badawi as his successor and Obasanjo choose Yar’Adua as his successor after vanquishing their influential Deputies. By 2005 Mahathir and Badawi fell out over policy issues particularly the cancellation of the Malaysia-Singapore highway project and Proton
2006 Mahathir tried unsuccessfully to attend the UMNO General Assembly as a delegate announcing the widening gulf between Mahathir and chosen successor. In 2008 @ObasanjoOAremu attempt to influence the election of Gov. Sam Egwu as PDP Chairman suffered a setback at Eagle square
Yar’Adua and his henchmen led by Gov. Saraki and Ibori enforced the emergence of Ogbulafor against Sen. Anyim ( who Obasanjo didn’t want) and Sam Egwu his preferred candidate. Interestingly Yar’Adua left @ObasanjoOAremu at Eagle Square to attend the funeral of Emir of Katsina
