2023: Only non-patriotic Nigerians will vote for Tinobu and others – Obasanjo

Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has insisted that the Labor Party candidate, Peter Obi, deserves the votes of all nationalist Nigerians, saying that only non-nationalists would vote for his opponents.

While calling on Nigerians to support Obi, Obasanjo said it was because he had good personalities, which his fellow contestants lacked.

Obasanjo spoke on Thursday while participating in an interactive session organized by Experimental Command in Africa (TEL-Africa) in Abeokuta, the capital of Ogun state.

Speaking on why he announced his support for Obi against Bola Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP), Obasanjo said “I will punish God if I know what is right and do not put it where it ought to be”.

He explained that he had mentioned in his letter that Obi had an advantage, he holds everything together; Stating that “I take a personality, I take a track record, I take a vision and I take what you see in this man as the Son of God.”

He noted that during his New Year’s open letter to young people, he said that he knew the main candidates a little and could talk a little about them as their mentor.

“Why should you as a Nigerian vote for someone who has the character, reputation and life you don’t want your children to have?” Obasanjo asked, emphasizing that “Either you’re evil, you’re unpatriotic or you’re really a bad citizen of this country, and if that’s what you are, what do you want God to do with you, and that’s the way I see it.”
