Former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar, on Monday, said former President Olusegun Obasanjo had the right to endorse whoever he wanted for the 2015 presidential election.
Atiku said this in Abuja, at a news conference organised by his media organisation to intimate the public of a policy review summit coming up at the Obasanjo Presidential Library in Abeokuta on October 27.
Debunking claims that the three-day conference was a ploy to get Nigeria’s ex-president to endorse him for the next general election, Atiku said the choice of Abeokuta for the conference was because his media organisation felt each time they went to Lagos, the people’s daily routine was usurped.
He said: “Abeokuta is a more serene atmosphere for thinking and suits our purpose. It is not a strategy for endorsement.
“Obasanjo is in the PDP; he has a right to endorse anyone he wants as president but you will agree with me that the ultimate choice lies with the electorate.”
