Here’s Why Former President Obasanjo’s Son Has Gone Against His Father

Abraham Obasanjo, son of former President Olusegun Obasanjo, has gone against his father and declared his support for the re-election bid of President Muhammadu Buhari.

Abraham conveyed this in a letter he wrote to the Buhari Campaign Organisation on Wednesday.

Festus Keyamo, spokesman of the campaign, acknowledge receipt of the letter and shared its contenet.

“Dear Sir, please find attached a statement of my public declaration and support for the 2019 second term re-election bid of our highly esteemed President Buhari,” Obasanjo’s son wrote in a letter.

“I have taken a personal decision to release the statement and to notify you of my availability to work for the re-election of our dear President Muhammadu Buhari with sincerity and loyalty.

“Please accept my assurances of the highest regards.”

THEWILL recalls that the ex-president is vehemently opposed to the reelection of Buhari and is making moves to ensure the election of another candidate under a ‘third force’.

In January, he released a strongly-worded statement where he advised the president to forget about another term.

Obasanjo accused Buhari of shielding some corrupt persons around him and also favouring a section of the country against the other.
