Obasanjo bad judge of character – APC PCC

The All Progressives Congress Campaign Council has said that former President Olusegun Obasanjo ‘is not a good judge of character’, based on his comment that none of the presidential candidates ‘is a saint’.

Bayo Onanuga, the director of media and publicity of the campaign, stated this in his reaction to Obasanjo’s endorsement of the Labour Party’s presidential candidate Peter Obi on Sunday. 

The APC-PCC said while it recognized Obasanjo’s right to name his preferred candidate, the endorsement is “worthless”.

Onanuga said Obasanjo is ‘notorious’ for “always opposing progressive political forces, as he did against MKO Abiola in 1993, but that

“Asíwájú Bola Ahmed Tinubu will not lose sleep over Obasanjo’s move”.

“The endorsement is actually worthless because the former President does not possess any political goodwill or leverage anywhere in Nigeria to make anyone win a Councillorship election let alone win a Presidential election.  He is a political paperweight.

“From our records,  President Obasanjo has not successfully made anyone win election in Nigeria since then. 

“Not even in Ogun State can anyone rely on his support or endorsement to become a governor or Councillor. 

“We pity Peter Gregory Obi as we are confident that Chief Obasanjo can not win his polling unit and ward in Abeokuta for Obi in the coming Presidential election on 25 February, 2023.

“Chief Obasanjo’s endorsement is not a political currency Mr. Peter Obi can spend anywhere in Nigeria because he is not a political force, even in his part of the country. 

“We take a particular notice of the part of the endorsement statement where Chief Obasanjo said none  of the presidential candidates is a Saint. 

“We want to state here that Chief Obasanjo is not a good judge of character. He is a man who considers only himself as the all-knowing Saint in Nigeria. 

“Over the years, Chief Obasanjo has also convinced himself that integrity, honesty and all good virtues begin and end with him.”
