President Olusegun Aremu Obasanjo has set issues straight by denouncing the news of setting up a ‘Third Force’ as party. This was contained in a statement signed by his Media Aide, Kehinde Akinyemi.
Akinyemi, in his speech, confirms the erstwhile military leader and President has done with politics. He has no plan to accommodate the aggrieved members of APC or PDP in his new political party.
Obasanjo, according to his Media Aide is in Kabul, Afghanistan, where he is being hosted by President Ashraf Gani. The purported move to floating a new party should not be welcomed with the collective attention, as it is faulty, fake and unrealistic.
Obasanjo was quoted as saying, “In my part of the world, when you say goodnight in a place, you do not go back there and say good evening. The one who reported that may need to visit Yaba Left (Federal Neuro-Psychiatric Hospital, Yaba). And those who believe it can believe that their mothers are men.
“I’m done with partisan politics but by my position in Nigeria and in Africa and without being immodest and indeed in the world, my door must be open and it is open to any individual or group of individuals who want to seek my opinion, view or advice on any issue or matter and I will respond to the best of my ability, without being part of that individual or group.”
