A former Nigerian president, Olusegun Obasanjo, has denied the media speculations that he has endorsed one of the presidential aspirants for the February 2015 election.
Obasanjo, while speaking through one of his close friends, Oyewole Fasawe, in Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital on Monday, said he had neither endorsed nor condemned any of the aspirants running on the platform of any of the political parties.
DailyPost recalls that Senate President, David Mark, and a national leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Bola Tinubu, had separately visited the former president in his home to discuss issues bothering on election.
It was alleged that Obasanjo had during the meeting warned the APC leaders not field Mr. Abubakar, who was his (Obasanjo) deputy.
Fasawe said in a statement said the ex-president saw the current aspirants in all the parties as his political children and associates, noting that he would not endorse one over the other no matter the amount of pressure from any quarter.
“Baba has not endorsed anyone and has not condemned anyone. A statesman of his stature and pedigree can only pray and work towards peace and progress in Nigeria, Africa and the world at large. Those trying to exploit his friendliness to gain political advantage over other contenders are being unfair and doing so without Obasanjo’s approval”, he said.
He further explained that the former president had promised to ensure a free, fair and credible election in 2015.
