After Crying out For So Long, Obasanjo Finally Reveals Who He Will Support To Lead Nigeria, come 2019

Former President of Nigeria, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo in a statement on Monday has categorically denied rumors that he is planning to float a new political party ahead of the 2023 general elections.

Some earlier reports had insinuated that Obasanjo is reportedly plotting to establish a new political party ahead of the 2023 general election with plans that the new party would accommodate aggrieved members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and the People’s Democratic Party (PDP).

But Obasanjo has now issued a denial about nursing such plans, describing the report by a national newspaper as a fabricated story.

He added that it is part of the efforts by some people to drag him into their political games.

“In my part of the world, when you say goodnight in a place, you do not go back there and say good evening. The one who reported that may need to visit Yaba Left. And those who believe it can believe that their mothers are men.

“I’m done with partisan politics but by my position in Nigeria and in Africa and without being immodest and indeed in the world, my door must be opened and it is open to any individual or group of individuals who want to seek my opinion, view or advice on any issue or matter and I will respond to the best of my ability, without being part of that individual or group,” a statement by his media assistant, Kehinde Akinyemi, said on Monday.

The statement noted further that “If anything, Chief Obasanjo’s political party today is the party of Nigerians facing insecurity, unemployment, hunger, poverty, and various other challenging issues. It is the party of Nigeria which must be saved, kept wholesomely united in peace, security, equity, development, and progress.

“Let those who want to use the back door to force Chief Obasanjo to return to partisan politics respect his choice to remain a non-partisan statesman.”
