2019 Elections: Obasanjo Goes Neutral On Atiku

Former President  Olusegun Obasanjo seems to have gone neutral on his former partisanship and endorsement of the PDP presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar.

Obasanjo created this impression on Saturday in Iwo, Osun State when he  urged Nigerians to vote for credible candidates who will drive growth and development.

He did not mention Atiku Abubakar as his favourite candidate as he did on October 11, when he said he had forgiven his former deputy and now whitewashed him as the successor to President Muhammadu Buhari.

Obasanjo spoke at the 27th  annual Owu National Convention  held in Iwo, Osun.

He said credible leadership would promote good governance.

The former president, who said he would not campaign for any particular candidate, urged Nigerians to vote wisely.

The Chairman of the Supreme Council of Owu Obas, Oba Hammed Oyelude, said Owu being the largest Yoruba speaking ethnic group in the South West Zone had been contributing to policy development in the country.

Oyelude, who is the Olowu of Owu Kuta, said the Royal Union of Owu People had been contributing to policy development in the country.

He called on Owu people to participate in politics in order to contribute to national development.

Oyelude also called on indigenes of  Owu to support and vote for any indigene contesting for any political office.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that dignitaries present at the occasion included Owu monarchs as well as indigenes of the Yoruba sub-ethnic group.
