Endorsement Or Coincidence: ‘My Job Is Done’ Obasanjo Says As He Gives Up Seat For Peter Obi At An Event

Former President Olusegun Obasanjo stole the show at the event organised to celebrate the national award given to the President of the African Export-Import Bank, Prof. Benedict Oramah.

In a viral video, former President Olusegun Obasanjo was seen offering his seat to Peter Obi, Labour Party’s presidential candidate, that is calling up Obi who was sitting at table nine, and then leading him to table one.

This has stirred multiple reactions, mostly positive as the former president did not just give up his seat, but as Obasanjo went forward to pick the former Peter Obi from his previous chair, he said, “In the presence of Nigerians,” and after leading Obi to table one, he declared, “My job is done,” as the audience applauded in approval.



It is of note to recall that the former president is yet to endorse a presidential candidate for the forthcoming presidential elections; however, as speculations go Obi might be his preferred candidate.


Prior to the event, the Labour Party flagbearer had been involved in a series of closed-door meetings with the former president.

Obasanjo also took part in Obi’s meeting with Governor Nyesom Wike and his group in London recently.
