Despite Endorsing Atiku, Obasanjo Says He Won’t Campaign For Anybody

Despite endorsing Atiku Abubakar, the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), a former President Olusegun Obasanjo said he would not campaign for any particular candidate or political party.

Speaking in Iwo, Osun State at the 27th annual Owu National Convention on Saturday, the ex-president also urged Nigerians to vote wisely in 2019 general elections.

He added that only credible leadership would promote good governance, hence the need for Nigerians to choose wisely in the poll.

Obasanjo, who spoke in Yoruba said, “This is not a political gathering, but we can talk politics a little. Last year, we had this event in Ibadan. This year, we’re having it here in Iwo. Next year, we may go to Kwara because we also have Owu people in Kwara.

“Another election is near, open your eyes and vote wisely. Vote only the party that won’t add to your suffering. The economy must return to a better state. Look at parties that have governed this country and choose that one that will return Nigeria’s economy to a better state.

“I am not campaigning for any party or candidate and I won’t do that. But I urge you to open your eyes and vote wisely. Only credible leadership can guarantee good governance and that is what the country needs now.”
