“So, it is only fair that when he decided to be the president or a candidate, he should come and let me know. That’s the essence of the relationship. It’s like ‘don’t read it in the papers, I am going to run.’ And whatever advice I have, I will give it to him based on my own experience. Hopefully, that will help him to mobilize all of you.

When asked whether the report that he, Obasanjo, Abdulsalami, Gusau and Abdullahi are behind Peter Obi’s candidacy, he responded.
