2023: “Those who believe it can believe that their mothers are men” – Obasanjo denies plans to float new party

Former President Olusegun Obasanjo in a latest statement has debunk reports linking him to the formation of a new party ahead of the 2023 Presidential election.

Recall that a few hours ago, the reports had gone viral claiming that Obasanjo was planning to float a new political party as well as picking three former governors as the coordinators.

The former President, who is currently in Kabul, Afghanistan, as a guest of President Ashraf Ghani has declared the report false while maintaining that “there was no plan to float a new political party now or in near future.”

He stressed that he is not surprised by the fabricated report because he has, for some time now, observed with bewilderment the efforts by some people to drag him into their political games.

“In my part of the world, when you say goodnight in a place, you do not go back there and say good evening. The one who reported that may need to visit Yaba Left. And those who believe it can believe that their mothers are men.

“I’m done with partisan politics but by my position in Nigeria and in Africa and without being immodest and indeed in the world, my door must be opened and it is open to any individual or group of individuals who want to seek my opinion, view or advice on any issue or matter and I will respond to the best of my ability, without being part of that individual or group,” a statement by his media assistant, Kehinde Akinyemi, said on Monday.

Akinyemi noted that Obasanjo’s political party today is the party of Nigerians facing insecurity, unemployment, hunger, poverty, and various other challenging issues.
