Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has stated that he has no preferred candidate among those contesting the 2023 presidential election.
Obasanjo, who stated this in Minna on Sunday when he visited former head of state, General Abdulsalam Abubakar, said he had only a national agenda and no preferred candidate.
“I don’t have a special candidate, I have a national agenda.”
The former president also said he was in Minna to visit the former head of state, who was unable to attend.
“I came to see my brother who was a little unwell. I had plans to visit him while he was still in London, but the day I arrived in London was the day he returned home.
“So that’s why I decided to come and see him at home. He’s very special, so I had to come.
He also said that “if anyone is unable to attend, I will visit and I am still strong.”
The former president, who had a close meeting with Abdulsaam, arrived at 12:30 PM and left at 1:13 PM.
