-Olusegun Obasanjo

Former President Olusegun Obasanjo, has asked citizens to avoid voting for certain presidential aspirants. He said aspirants claiming that their presidential forms were bought by youths are liars who should not be voted for.

The former president made the comment while speaking at a conference in Lagos organised in honour of a clergyman.

Obasanjo has called on Nigerians to reject presidential aspirants lying about how they got their their nomination forms.

Obasanjo made the comment in Lagos during a colloquium to mark the 61st birthday of Pastor Itua Ighodalo.

“Today, they are paying N40million. Some of them (aspirants) even said it is some youths who bought it for them.

“In fact anybody who would come out to tell you such a lie, you shouldn’t vote for him. Which youths gathered N40million? If you want to buy it, buy it and tell us. You don’t need to lie to us.”

Presidential forms have been bought for some Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential aspirants in the last few weeks including Obasanjo’s former deputy, Atiku Abubakar, and immediate past Senate President, Abubakar Bukola Saraki. Others are Sokoto state governor; Aminu Waziri Tambuwal, former Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Senator Anyim Pius Amyim, and former governor of Anambra state, Peter Obi.
