Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has said that he would never be a politician again in his life and does not belong to any political party in the county.

Obasanjo stated this yesterday while hosting Kogi State governor, Capt. Idris Wada, at his residence in Abeokuta, Ogun State capital. He noted that although he is no longer playing active partisan politics, he would continue to work with any Nigerian with good intention and leadership traits.

“Everybody is welcome but they must be with good leadership traits, and genuine intention to improve the country.

“We should understand first that, not the party makes the person, but the person makes the party. It is who you are that you bring into the party. Though, for now I remain a “partyless” Nigerian, but, I will continue to welcome any Nigerian with good leadership qualities.

“It does not matter which party you are, either, PDP, APC, Labour, APGA any party at all, as long as you a are committed, sincere and a purposeful leader, I am ready for you. And that is what our brother is doing. I pray that this country will never be short of this type of people,” Obasanjo said.

Speaking during the visit, Wada explained that he was in Abeokuta following his recent award as the best governor in the country that took place in Lagos. “Since we were honored as the best governor yesterday in Lagos, we deem it appropriate to come down to Abeokuta to report to our father, the little recognition we got.”
