Politics Africa : Obj reveals who gets his support in 2019 general election


Obj reveals who gets his support in 2019 general election
Former Nigerian president, Dr. Olusegun Obasanjo has declared his unalloyed support for anyone who will lead Nigeria to her promised land after he noted that Nigeria’s under-performance problems are that of poor leadership.
OBJ made this statement while he receiving a PDP Presidential Aspirant, Kabiru Tanimu Turaki (SAN), at his residence in Abeokuta, Ogun State on Thursday, when he said that he had not lost hope because God had blessed Nigeria with men and women of caliber who can stand their own in the world.
The ex-president noted that “we are not short of leadership that can perform”. He recalled that he consulted widely in 1998/1999 just as Turaki is doing now, revealed that he accepted to be drafted into the presidential campaign because of the need to unite the country.

“Listening to you, I believe you have got the concerns of Nigerians today in the area of security, economy and cohesion. Anybody who will lead Nigeria to the promised land will have my support,” Obasanjo said.
However, Obasanjo condemned the siege laid to the residences of the Senate President, Bukola Saraki and his deputy, Ike Ekweremadu, while he stated categorically that it was indeed embarrassing that such is happening at this time when the country is going through a lot of issues.

OBJ said, “We are in a position to do better than what we are doing today.”
Obasanjo further noted that what Turaki had been doing is to firm up and stabilize Nigeria’s democracy which, he believed is making some progress.
Meanwhile, Turaki in his remarks, described Obasanjo as the ‘Father of Modern Nigeria’, said that it is people like him who speak truth to power that are working assiduously for a united country.

The aspirant stressed that there is need to take up the challenge of rescuing Nigerians from the plethora of problems such as insecurity, poverty, divisiveness and hopelessness confronting them today.
He said that with the support of respected leaders like Obasanjo “we know that we would be able to rescue our country as we have no other place to go.”
