Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has stated that he has no preferred candidate among those contesting the 2023 presidential election.

Obasanjo, who stated this in Minna on Sunday when he paid former Head of State, General Abdulsalam Abubakar a visit, said he only had a national agenda not a preferred candidate.

“I don’t have a special candidate, I have a national agenda,” Obasanjo declared.

The former President also said he was in Minna to visit the former Head of State who had been indisposed.

“I came to see my brother who has been a little indisposed. I had plans to visit him when he was still in London, but the day I arrived in London was the day he returned home.

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.

“So that is why I decided to come and see him at home. He is very special so I had to come.

He also said that “if there is anyone who is indisposed, I will visit and I am still strong.”

The former President who was in a close meeting with Abdulsaam arrived at 12:30 and left at 1:13pm.
