2023: I've Not Endorsed Any Presidential Aspirant - Obasanjo | CABLE REPORTERS


Former President Olusegun Obasanjo on Saturday said he was not in a hurry to endorse any presidential aspirant ahead of the 2023 general elections.

The former president denied rumours making the round on the social media that he had endorsed a candidate and a political party, saying, “I have neither named names nor stated my position”.

Obasanjo hinted that he would be looking beyond personality of any candidate and urged Nigerians to learn from the events of the past and put aside sentiments in choosing the next president of the country.

He also also denied forming any political party to serve as a third force to wrestle power from the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).

He said, “As the quadrennial madness builds a head of steam and the runners and riders crisscross the nation in the quest for nomination as the party flag bearer to the highest office in the land, I read and hear about endorsement and statements in support of candidates that I frankly have not made and forming next political parties that I can never get involved in. I was told that social media credited to me names of three people from the south that I am sponsoring for Presidency in 2023.
