This Day quoted him to have said:
"“I do not have a special candidate. I only have a national agenda.
“I came to see my brother who has been a little indisposed. When he was in London, I wanted to visit him but the day I arrived in London was the day he left. So that is why I decided to come and see him at home.
“He is very special and I am still strong to visit those who are special to me.”
Some Nigerians actually believe that Obasanjo, having been a president in the past, knows the problems of Nigeria and how best to fix them.
One of such persons is Uzokwe Nneka Ndukwe who reacted to Obasanjo's remark on Monday, August 29.
"Obasanjo as a political father you know exactly what is wrong in the country and as a former president you also have ideas on how to Fix some of the major problems if not all of them but why you are keeping quiet is what we don't know
"2023 is indeed pregnant.
"We all pray hope and believe God to give us a peaceful baby that will bring this country out of the mess he is into and not a violence child of any kind at all."
