Presidency believes Obasanjo is confused
The Nigerian Presidency has announced that it no longer takes former president, Olusegun Obasanjo’s utterances seriously. Speaking to journalists, presidential spokesperson, Garba Shehu said “Former president Obasanjo denounces one person today and supports that same person the next day.”When it pleases him, he brings God into the matter and uses that as his excuse for whatever position he has chosen”
According to Shehu, whoever Obasanjo chooses to support is no longer relevant. “After all, this is the same man who publicly tore his party registration card barely four years ago, and he now claims to be backing the same party”, he said.
