Despite Tinubu’s win, Obasanjo continues to back Obi.
By Omotayo Olutekunbi
Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has supported Peter Obi, the Labour Party (LP) presidential candidate in the February 25 presidential election, which can lead Nigeria to a brighter future.
This confirmation comes even though the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) declared Bola Tinubu, the candidate of the governing All Progressives Congress (APC), the election winner.
In a recent interview with media personality Chude Jideonwo, former President Obasanjo reiterated his stance that Peter Obi is still the finest option for the nation, notwithstanding Tinubu’s election. Obasanjo stressed that Obi had the characteristics and aptitude to shepherd the country towards growth and prosperity for Nigeria he envisions.
“For the Nigeria that I believe we need to have at this point in time, Peter Obi is still the best candidate,” Obasanjo stated, reaffirming his endorsement of the LP candidate.
When questioned about his greatest legacy, the former president expressed thanks for the gifts and grace bestowed upon him during his life. He recognized God’s goodness and the immense favor showered upon him throughout his earthly stay.
Following Tinubu’s victory declaration, opposition parties, notably the LP and Peter Obi, launched legal challenges to the electoral procedure that culminated in Tinubu’s presidential election. The court disputes underscored the opposition’s displeasure and doubts about the election’s validity.
