Abeokuta: Former President of Nigeria, Dr. Olusegun Obasanjo has emphatically the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu that it is the turn of the South East region to produce the President of Nigeria, come 2023.
According to available reports, the former President Obasanjo made his stance known when Tinubu paid him a courtesy visit at his Otta residence in Abeokuta, Ogun State, to mend fences and seek his blessing regarding his presidential bid.
According to sources close to Obasanjo, however, during the meeting he simply told the APC presidential candidate that he ought not to be in the race because of the poor performance of his party, the ruling APC.
Also, he stated that it is important to be fair to the South East for equity and all-inclusiveness to reign and asked his visitor to give the region a chance.

Obasanjo was quoted as saying: “I am very much aware that it’s the turn of the South to produce the next President of Nigeria.
“I was part of the meeting when the agreement was made between Northern and Southern Leaders.
“I am even surprised PDP gave her ticket to another Northern candidate.
“It will be an injustice to the South if the North retains power after 8 years of rule.
“We will do the right thing when the time comes.”
News.band reported that in 2019, Tinubu had called on Nigerians to “dump Obasanjo in the dustbin”.
The then APC leader said that “Obasanjo is expired milk”.
Asiwaju Bola Tinubu stated this during his speech at the Teslim Balogun Stadium in Lagos State.
He had also accused Obasanjo of being behind the greatest election rigging in the history of the country.
He had said: “Obasanjo is the greatest election rigger in this country.
“He’s an expired milk. Dump him in the dustbin. Forget Obasanjo.”
Reacting to the name-calling, former Aviation Minister, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode noted that Bola Ahmed Tinubu is an ugly and repugnant little creature who lives in and presides over the affairs of Lagos state.
He said that Tinubu comes from a long line of slave-dealers even though he is of questionable parentage, adding that “many claim that his real name is not Bola Ahmed Tinubu but rather Hameed Sangodele or Yekini Amoda Ogunlere or Bobo Chicago”
“Whatever his real name is or whatever anyone chooses to call him, at every available opportunity this creature insists on insulting President Olusegun Obasanjo and President Goodluck Jonathan accusing them of deceit, theft, incompetence, graft, corruption and all manner of atrocities.
“He claims to be holier and better than them yet the truth is that he is not fit to be used as toilet paper to clean their either of their rectums.
“He suffers from low self-esteem, he has no conscience and he will do anything or sell anybody for money and power.
“He is a traitor to the Yoruba, a traitor to the south, a traitor to the progressives and a traitor to the oppressed. He is the Judas of Nigeria, the first born of hell and the supreme leader of the accursed.
“He is a conflicted, compromised, corrupt, filthy, parasitic and sociopathic leech and a professional loafer that has sold his soul to Satan and that has traded his nation, his people, his heritage, his conscience and his honor to Beelzebub in return for a few choice morsels at Buhari’s table.
“The truth is that he is not fit to be Obasanjo’s or Jonathan’s houseboy let alone join issues with either of them or insult them in the way that he has been doing.,” Fani-Kayode added.
