The recent utterances by ex-president Olusegun Obasanjo has been regarded by the presidency as irrelevant and confusing in nature.
The presidential Spokesperson, Garba Shehu, has said that whoever is chosen by Obasanjo for the 2019 elections is of no importance. He made this known while speaking to journalists in Abuja on Wednesday.
According to Shehu, the ex-president had so many times over the past few months made a change of mind publicly on the matter.
“Former president, Obasanjo denounces one person today and supports that same person the next day.
“When it pleases him, he brings God into the matter and uses that as his excuse for whatever position he has chosen,” he said.
He added that it was of no surprise to him when it was reported in the newspapers about Obasanjo expression of a neutral stance at a weekend forum, only for him to express a totally different stance after a day or two.
He said “We have learnt not to take his utterances seriously anymore.
“We know that the slightest wind can make him change his mind again. After all, this is the same man who publicly tore his party registration card barely four years ago, and he now claims to be backing the same party,” he added.
