I Do Not Belong To Any Political Party, I Will Not Join Any Campaign Train – Obasanjo Declares

Olusegun Obasanjo, a former president, has brushed down rumours that he will support Peter Obi’s bid for the presidency of the Labour Party (LP).

Obasanjo declared that since he doesn’t belong to any political parties, he won’t be a part of any campaign train.

Obasanjo said this while speaking at a virtual engagement hosted by the Africa Leadership Group.

Recall that earlier on, in a message addressing Nigerian youths on their leadership choices, the former president had given Obi his endorsement.

A decision that had caused him to be heavily criticised by Obi’s political opponents.

Obasanjo said: “I am not on the campaign train. I have used the benefit of my experience and put things plainly.”

“I do not belong to any political party. I will not join any campaign train. I have said what is best for the country.”

Further speaking, he said:  “Nigeria is where we are because of leadership.”

“We must decisively look for men and women who have the character, attributes, skill and attitude that we need for leadership that will deliver in this country” he added.
