Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has denied reports that he endorsed the presidential ambition of the APC candidate, Bola Tinubu, when he visited him in Abeokuta.
The former President in a statement issued by his Special Assistant on Media, Kehinde Akinyemi, on Saturday, said the statements coming from those claiming to be supporters of Tinubu are unhelpful.
He said the discussion during the visit was “more brotherly than political.”
Akinyemi further said the former President has neither agreed nor disapproved of Mr Tinubu’s ‘request’.
“Those claiming to be insiders at the meeting issuing statement on the discussion and those crediting to me statement I had not made are enemies of the visitor and are not doing the visit any good.”
Tinubu had visited Mr Obasanjo at the former President’s private penthouse residence within the Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library on Wednesday.
