2023: I never endorsed Tinubu – Obasanjo




Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has debunked reports that he endorsed the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate, Bola Tinubu, when he visited him in Abeokuta.

A statement by the former president special assistant on media, Kehinde Akinyemi, Saturday, stated that the statements coming from those claiming to be supporters of Mr Tinubu were unhelpful.

He said the discussion during the visit was “more brotherly than political.”

Akinyemi further said Obasanjo has neither agreed nor disapproved of Mr Tinubu’s ‘request’.

“Those claiming to be insiders at the meeting issuing statement on the discussion and those crediting to me statement I had not made are enemies of the visitor and are not doing the visit any good,” he said.

Tinubu had earlier visited Obasanjo at the penthouse residence Library on Wednesday August 17, 2022.
