Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has urged Nigerians not to relent in their quest for change with the election of the President-elect, Gen. Muhammadu Buhari, in the March 28 polls.
Obasanjo asked them to re-enact the same feat of March 28 by coming out en masse to vote for candidates of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in governorship and state Houses of Assembly elections on Saturday.
The former president spoke to reporters at the weekend in Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital, shortly after a surprise visit to traders at the popular Itoku market.
Obasanjo, in what was seen as endorsement of APC, said: “They should do exactly what they did last Saturday. As a member of the community, I have the right to visit my people, especially in the spirit of Easter.
“Since I came back, I have not really visited any market. I have come to do two things. I have come to give them Easter greetings and to find out how they are doing in their market. “This is my community. As a member of the community, I want to know what’s going on and what’s happening in the community.”
