Nobody Can Threaten Me Over My Preferred Candidate – Obasanjo

By Glam & Essence

Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has reacted to the talks in some quarters that he is backing Peter Obi, the Labour Party, LP presidential candidate.
According to him, whoever he chooses to support is nobody’s business, therefore, nobody can threaten him over his choice of a presidential candidate.
He made his reaction known at the Ohanaeze Ndigbo National Secretariat in Enugu State, while on a condolence visit there over the death of First Republic Aviation Minister, Mbazulike Amaechi, in the company of Afenifere’s leader, Pa Ayo Adebanjo and Mr Peter Obi.
During the visit, Obasanjo said, “I have shed my blood for this country. I have gone to prison for this country.
“So, what are you going to frighten or threaten me with? The only thing that my senior brother (Adebanjo) hasn’t done is that he hasn’t shed his blood, but he has gone to prison. But we will leave that aside.”
The former president pointed out Nigeria’s lack of leadership and the need to have a leader with the right type of character.
He equally describes Nigeria’s problem as national not ethnic, hence, the urgent need to put the country in the hands of someone with credibility and character.
