Ahead of the 2023 presidential election, former President Olusegun Obasanjo has revealed that he does not have a preferred candidate to replace the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari(retd.).
This is coming after Obasanjo met with the presidential candidates of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu, Peoples Democratic Party’s Atiku Abubakar, and Labour Party’s Peter Obi in London last week.
Speaking in Minna on Sunday during a visit to former Head of State, General Abdulsalami Abubakar, Obasanjo said he only had a national agenda, not a preferred candidate.
“I don’t have a special candidate, I have a national agenda.”
The former President also said he was in Minna to visit the former Head of State who had been indisposed.
“I came to see my brother who has been a little indisposed. I had plans to visit him when he was still in London, but the day I arrived London was the day he returned home.
“So that is why I decided to come and see him at home. He is very special so I had to come.
He also said that “if there is anyone who is indisposed, I will visit and I am still strong.”
The former President who was in a close meeting with Abdulsalami arrived at 12:30 and left at 1:13pm.
