“I will like to refer to 2019, former president Obasanjo supported Atiku in that election. Atiku was more or less Obasanjo’s candidate, so if he supported him that much, I don’t think anything has changed between 2019 and now.
“Again, former President Obasanjo, is a man we have enormous respect for.
“I am confident that the same God that led him to support Atiku in 2019 is still alive and will lead him to know that Atiku has what it takes to rescue our country from where we are at the moment.
“We believe that Obasanjo is a man who meant well for our country, he has demonstrated this in so many ways. He saw the ability of Atiku in 1999, and he chose him against all odds to become his running mate.

Recall that Obasanjo had expressed dissatisfaction with the unauthorized report of the discussion at his meeting with the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, and the fake statements credited to him.

Legit.ng reported that the ex-president in a statement by his special assistant on media, Kehinde Akinyemi, on Saturday, August 20, said the statements coming from those claiming to be supporters of Bola Tinubu were unhelpful.

The former president said the discussion during the visit was “more brotherly than political”, and that at the request of Bola Tinubu, Obasanjo agreed to no statement from either side.
