The opposition and the ruling party were both shaken by the open announcement, which was viewed as a significant boost for Obi’s ambition.

Since then, Obasanjo has been accused of accepting inducement in some social media posts and publications.

One of his assistants, who wished to remain unnamed, refuted the allegation in a conversation with Newsmen.
