Former President Olusegun Obasanjo on Sunday said that he did not have a special candidate in the 2023 presidential election.
Obasanjo spoke to newsmen shortly after he paid a visit to former Head of State, Gen. Abdulsalami Abubakar, in Minna.
He said: “I don’t have a special candidate, as far as 2023 presidential election is concerned.
“I have come to see my brother who was a bit indisposed and when he was abroad I had wanted to visit him, and the day I arrived in London to visit him was the day he left.
“So, I said, well, since I could not see him in London, I will come to see him in Nigeria. And so, that is what I have come to do.
“He is special in a way and he was indisposed; so, I had to come and see him.
“If there is anybody again who is special and indisposed that I have to see, I will see him. I am still strong enough,” he said.
While in Minna, Obasanjo also visited ex-military president, Gen. Ibrahim Babangida, where they held a closed door meeting.
