Olusegun Obasanjo has called on Nigerians to vote wisely in the 2019 general elections, saying he’ll not campaign for any particular candidate, Punch is reporting.
The former president made this known on Saturday whilse speaking at the 27th annual Owu National Convention which took place in Iwo, Osun state.
Speaking in Yoruba, Obasanjo said:
This is not a political gathering, but we can talk politics a little. Last year, we had this event in Ibadan. This year, we’re having it here in Iwo. Next year, we may go to Kwara because we also have Owu people in Kwara.
Another election is near, open your eyes and vote wisely. Vote only the party that won’t add to your suffering. The economy must return to a better state. Look at parties that have governed this country and choose that one that will return Nigeria’s economy to a better state.
I am not campaigning for any party or candidate and I won’t do that. But I urge you to open your eyes and vote wisely. Only credible leadership can guarantee good governance and that is what the country needs now.
