Gen. Olusegun Obasanjo (rtd), a former military and civilian president of Nigeria, has visited other past rulers of the country in their hometown in Minna, Niger State on Sunday.

Speaking with Track News Nigeria, the elder state-man stated that some presidential candidates and Political Parties who visited him recently as reported is not an indication that he has a preferred presidential candidate for the 2023 elections but rather a national agenda.

According to him: “I don’t have a special candidate for the 2023 presidential election but rather, I have a National Agenda.”

Recall that Obasanjo had received different political leaders like Mr Peter Obi, the Labour Party presidential flag-bearer; All Progressives Congress Presidential Candidate, Bola Ahmed Tinubu and others who consulted them over their ambitions in the forthcoming 2023 general elections.

Our Correspondent says Chief Obasanjo who arrived in a Black Jeep with plate Number Kaduna DKA 621FQ at exactly 12.30pm on Sunday drove straight first to General Abdulsalami’s residence where they had a closed door meeting for about 30 minutes.

“I have come to see my brother who was indisposed and when he was abroad I had wanted to visit him but unfortunately, I missed him because the day I arrived in London to visit him was the day he left.

“So I said 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.

“He is special in a way and he was indisposed, so I had to come and see him. If there is anybody again who is special and indisposed that I have to see, I will see him. I am still strong enough”, Obasanjo remarked.

The former President immediately drove to General Ibrahim Babangida’s residence too where they also had another closed door meeting.
