Former President Olusegun Obasanjo on Friday blows hot again, saying it is “performance” and not “party loyalty” that informed his choice of whom to support in the forthcoming general election.
Obasanjo, who is a former chairman, Board of Trustees (BoT) of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), did not hide his intention to vote for the All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship candidate in Ogun state, Senator Ibikunle Amosun, in the February 28 governorship election in the state.

The ex- president said this in  Abeokuta, the state capital, when addressing Igbo leaders from Lagos and Ogun States, who visited him at his Presidential Hilltop Estate, Abeokuta. The Igbo delegation led by Chief Austine Nkeze was in Obasanjo’s home to identify with him and seek his direction regarding the elections.

He appealed to non – indigenes in Ogun State to re-elect Amosun so that the infrastructural, urban renewal projects being executed by the governor could be sustained. Obasanjo said: “In 2011, we were not together, though we were together before and I did campaign against him. But, see what he has been able to do in the last three and half years in the state, I cannot sacrifice performance for party.”

“I never dream of having a bridge on dry land in Ogun state in my life time. Yes, we have Ogun River, where there is a bridge, but on a dry land, go to Ijebu, Sagamu, Ota, what am I seeing, bridges, not even one, two, three.
“So, my people, I am not talking about other elections. I have come to tell you that in order to appreciate what this personality has been able to do in the last three and half years, let us give him our votes.
“If you do me this honour and things change, come and meet me and I will be responsible. But, because I know his personality, he will not. What happened in 2011 is politics, and we can all see the difference between politics and personality.”
