Make Bad, Corrupt Leaders Uncomfortable – Obasanjo To Nigerian Youths

Peter Obi: Nobody Can Scare Me Over My Favoured Candidate, Says Obasanjo

by Echezona obinna

Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has declared that no one can threaten him over his choice of a presidential candidate, despite rumours that he is supporting Peter Obi, the flag bearer of the Labour Party, LP.
Obasanjo claimed that because he had shed blood and been imprisoned, no one could threaten him with his choice of a presidential candidate.

He made the announcement at the Ohanaeze Ndigbo National Secretariat in Enugu State.

Obasanjo came to the Secretariat with Afenifere’s head, Pa Ayo Adebanjo, and Obi.
They came to the Secretariat to express their condolences following the demise of First Republic Aviation Minister Mbazulike Amaechi.

However, Obasanjo said: “I have shed my blood for this country. I have gone to prison for this country.

“So, what are you going to frighten or threaten me with? The only thing that my senior brother (Adebanjo) hasn’t done is that he hasn’t shed his blood but he has gone to prison but we will leave that aside.”


He said Nigeria’s problem was more national than ethnic.

The former president lamented that Nigeria was yet to have a leader with the right type of character.

“The problem we have in our hands in Nigeria is not ethnic. It is national. And for me, the most important thing in a leader is character.

“If I put my hand on someone, it means that comparing with the other, I see that there is a merit that will be of benefit to Nigeria,” he said.
