Presidency Replies Obasanjo, Says His Choice is Irrelevant
Obasanjo's Change of Mind is a Sign of Confusion- Presidency
The presidency has on Wednesday, December 12 replied Olusegun Obasanjo for stating that he would be a fool to be neutral as regards the 2019 presidential elections.
The reply was as contained in a statement by the spokesperson to the president, Garba Shehu.
The presidency said that the former president’s choice is irrelevant.
According to the statement, Obasanjo’s statement was merely a sign of confusion as he had publicly changed his mind on the matter so many times over the past few months.
Shehu added that the presidency is not surprised at Obasanjo’s change of mind as they have learnt not to take him seriously.
“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.
“We have learnt not to take his utterances seriously anymore. We know that the slightest wind can make him change his mind again.
”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.
