Obasanjo said the aspirants lied to Nigerians and should not be voted in the forthcoming presidential election
- The former president argued that youths cannot afford the ₦40 million nomination form as claimed by the aspirants
EKO HOT BLOG reports that a former President of Nigeria, Olusegun Obasanjo has asked Nigerians not to support or vote for some presidential aspirants who claimed their nomination forms were purchased for them by groups.
Recall that the former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, Governor Aminu Tambuwal of Sokoto State, former Senate President, Bukola Saraki, former Anambra Governor, Peter Obi and other aspirants had claimed that some groups purchased their Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) nomination form for them.
But Obasanjo, who spoke during a colloquium to mark the 61st birthday of Pastor Itua Ighodalo in Lagos, said the aspirants lied to Nigerians and should not be voted in the forthcoming presidential election.
The former president, who admitted that the problem of the country emanated from bad leadership, argued that youths cannot afford the ₦40 million nomination form as claimed by the aspirants.
Obasanjo said, “Today, they are paying ₦40m. Some of them (aspirants) even said it is some youths who bought it for them.
“In fact, anybody who would come out to tell you such a lie, you shouldn’t vote for him. Which youths gathered ₦40m? If you want to buy it, buy it and tell us. You don’t need to lie to us.
