The Chairman Presidential Advisory Committee (PACAC), Prof. Itse Sagay (SAN) on Tuesday warned Nigerians against attaching importance to former President Olusegun Obasanjo in the forthcoming 2019 election. Sagay who issued the warning while speaking with Independent in Abuja said Obasanjo's influence starts and ends with himself, as he hardly controls even his children.
“I think Obasanjo is irrelevant. He doesn’t have more influence than myself. So, I believe Nigerians should just forget about him,” he added.
His comment is coming after some media outlets claimed that Obasanjo may endorse the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, ahead of the 2019 presidential election.
