Former President, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, says he will continue to canvass for a more progressive and prosperous Nigeria that will be beneficiary to the people until he leaves mother earth.
Obasanjo made this known during a meeting with the leaders of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the Southwest, where he said that the party’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar was denied the right to lead Nigerians at the just concluded Presidential election.
“Politically speaking, you can’t be my friend if you don’t buy into the Nigeria’s project. For me, till death, I will continue to push for a better Nigeria.
“I said if you compare the two of them (referring to Atiku and Buhari) with what I know and all I have written about the incumbent, which they have decided to cover up, Atiku is better than the incumbent by far. That’s the point I am making. And nobody is perfect.
“I am not a perfect person. I have my shortcomings. If I deny my shortcomings, it means I am not being truthful to myself.
“But, my shortcomings have nothing to do with my love for Nigeria. It has nothing to do with being greedy or selfishness.”
