Just In: Obasanjo Throws Full Weight Behind Obi

Former President Olusegun Aremu Obasanjo has today endorsed the Presidential candidate of the Labour Party ahead of the 2023 General Elections.

Obasanjo referred to Obi as his protégé and claimed the former governor of Anambra State had an advantage in the 2023 elections in the 2023 New Year letter, which was signed by the former president and provided to journalists by his aide, Kehinde Akinyemi.

He said: “None of the contestants is a saint but when one compares their character, antecedent, their understanding, knowledge, discipline, and vitality that they can bring to bear and the great efforts required to stay focused on the job, particularly looking at where the country is today and with the experience on the job that I personally had, Peter Obi as a mentee has an edge.

“Others like all of us have what they can collectively contribute to the new dispensation to liberation, restoration and salvaging of Nigeria.

“One other important point to make about Peter is that he is a needle with thread attached to it from North and South and he may not get lost.

“In other words, he has people who can pull his ears, if and when necessary. He has a young and able running mate with a clean track record of achievement both in public and private life.”
