Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has said nobody can threaten him over his choice of a presidential candidate.
Obasanjo, who has been publicly showing his support for the Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi, said he has shed his blood and gone to prison, therefore nobody can threaten him about his choice of a presidential candidate.
He disclosed this at the Ohanaeze Ndigbo National Secretariat in Enugu State when he visited with Afenifere’s leader, Pa Ayo Adebanjo and Peter Obi.
They visited the Secretariat to pay condolence over the death of First Republic Aviation Minister, Mbazulike Amaechi.
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."
He said Nigeria’s problem was more national than ethnic.
The former president lamented that Nigeria was yet to have a leader with the right type of character.
"The problem we have in our hands in Nigeria is not ethnic. It is national. And for me, the most important thing in a leader is character.
"If I put my hand on someone, it means that comparing with the other, I see that there is a merit that will be of benefit to Nigeria," he said. ... r-obi.html
