An activist, Deji Adeyanju, has confirmed that former President Olusegun Obasanjo is supporting the candidate of the Labour Party (LP), Peter Obi, to become the next Nigerian president in 2023.
The activist, in a statement today, August 25, said that Obasanjo has been soliciting funds for Obi’s presidential campaign, which will kick off next week, according to the calendar of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
He said however, that Obi will come a distant third in the next year’s presidential election despite such support, challenging anybody in doubt to a bet.
“I have information and those who know me know this. OBJ is supporting Obi 100% and I said this days ago.
“Baba (Obasanjo) has been the one calling people all over the place for Obi; from PDP governors to international connects and even people that can help fund the campaign but Obi will still come distant 3rd. Do you wanna bet?”
