2023: Reason I won’t campaign for Peter Obi —Obasanjo
Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has given reason he won’t join the campaign train of the presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), Peter Obi.
Recall that Obasanjo had earlier in his New Year message to Nigerians titled: “My appeal to all Nigerians particularly young Nigerians,” asked Nigerians to vote for Obi.
On Thursday, at a virtual engagement organized by Africa Leadership Group with the theme: “Leadership and nation-building,” Obasanjo maintained his position on Obi, declaring that he has no regrets about leading Nigeria.
According to the former President, character, attributes, attitude, skills, and most importantly, fear of God are needed for leadership.
Obasanjo 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.”
On the reason he won’t join Obi’s campaign train, Obasanjo noted that he has done his best by writing his endorsement plainly.
“I am not on the campaign train. I’ve used the benefit of my experience and I’ve put it plainly.
I do not belong to any political party. I will not join any campaign train. I’ve said what is best for the country,” he said.
