Presidency tells Ex-President, Olusegun Obasanjo - No one takes you seriously anymore

The Presidency has dismissed the recent utterances by former President Olusegun Obasanjo as “ a sign of confusion not worthy of attention. ”

Speaking to journalists in Abuja on Wednesday , presidential spokesperson, Garba Shehu , said that whoever “ Obasanjo chooses to support at the 2019 elections is irrelevant . ’’
He noted that the former president had publicly changed his mind on the matter so many times over the past few months.
He said : “ 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 . ’’
Shehu added that he was not surprised that newspapers reported Obasanjo expressing neutrality at a weekend forum , only for the former president to express “ a completely different stance after a day or two . ”

“ 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 , ’’ Shehu added.
