Obasanjo was described as a man who has always proved himself – a unique individual, and one who sincerely cares about the well being of Nigeria. A real elder statesman.
“What former President Olusegun Obasanjo has just done is what we expect of true Nigerian statesmen.
“We want to thank Chief Obasanjo for speaking up in favour of one United Nigeria where every citizen irrespective of ethnicity, the religion of political affiliation will be given a sense of belonging.
“A Nigeria where competence, track record of achievement and patriotism will play a pivotal role in the leadership recruitment process.
“We are happy to confirm that these qualities exist in the persons of our candidate, Peter Obi and his running mate Yusuf Datti-Ahmed.
