Former President Olusegun Obasanjo, has on Monday, May 23, met with three PDP governors.

 

Ahead of the primaries for the 2023 election, Obasanjo organised a closed door meeting in Abeokuta, Ogun State.

Speaking to the press, Obasanjo admitted to the governors’ meeting him concerning the 2023 presidential election.

 

He said, “of course, Governor Nyesom Wike as a presidential aspirant with Governor of Oyo, Governor of Benue, former Governor of Cross River and former Deputy Senate President and former Minister to express to me the desire and of course I made the point that I have always made that, I have ceased to be a partisan politician, I don’t belong to any political party.

 

“but if politics is the welfare of the people, I cannot cease to be a politician because I must always seek the welfare of the people.

 

“And of course, you all know what the situation of Nigeria is and anybody who doesn’t know that, is either not a Nigerian or is not being truthful to himself or herself and we need, as I often said, no one individual can say yes I can do it because the situation Nigeria is today, we need all hands, all Nigerian hands on deck to restore Nigeria and that is what Governor Wike is saying to me.

 

“Courage, he doesn’t lack it, and if you have courage and you have the conviction to speak your mind, well you will have a saying in this part of the world that a person who speaks the truth all the time may not even get a mat spread for him because you will incur the displeasure of people, but you need the truth to be spoken and to get ourselves moved Nigeria on the path of unity.”
