Former president Olusegun Obasanjo has denied media reports that he is neutral in the forthcoming general elections, saying such never came from him.

According to a statement obtained by premium Times, the media aide to ex president Olusegun Obasanjo, Mr. Kehinde Akinyemi, “it is disingenuous, if not malicious for anyone to suggest that Chief Obasanjo was being neutral when he chose not to use the “Owu” convention as a platform for political campaign, but instead adopt a communal and familial approach in talking to members of his Owu family.”

The statement continued,

“For the records, and as accurately reported by some media organisations, what the former president said at the convention in Iwo was that while he would not impose any candidates on them, Nigerians should vote for credible candidates who will drive growth and development and make their lives better than it is now.” 
He said in no way does Mr. Obasanjo’s statement suggest neutrality as he believes that “only a fool will sit on the fence or be neutral when his or her country is being destroyed with incompetence, corruption, lack of focus, insecurity, nepotism, brazen impunity and denial of the obvious, Chief Obasanjo is no such fool nor is he so unwise.”
