Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has told Nigerians not to vote for any presidential aspirant “lying” that some persons bought their Expression of Interest and Nomination Forms for them.
Obasanjo said during a colloquium with the theme: “The African Christian Leadership: Radical Transformation in Unsettled Times.”
The colloquium in Lagos on Thursday was to mark the 61st birthday of Pastor Itua Ighodalo.
Obasanjo said: “Today, they are paying N40 million.
“Some of them (aspirants) even said it is some youths who bought it for them.
“In fact anybody who would come out to tell you such a lie, you shouldn’t vote for him.
“Which youths gathered N40 million?
“If you want to buy it, buy it and tell us.
“You don’t need to lie to us.”
