Abraham Obasanjo, son of former President Olusegun Obasanjo, has declared his support for the second term bid of President Muhammadu Buhari.
The younger Obasanjo conveyed this in a letter he wrote to the Buhari Campaign Organisation on Wednesday.
Spokesman of the campaign, Festus Keyamo, acknowledge receipt of the letter and shared its content.
“Dear Sir, please find attached a statement of my public declaration and support for the 2019 second term re-election bid of our highly esteemed President Buhari,” Obasanjo’s son wrote in a letter.
“I have taken a personal decision to release the statement and to notify you of my availability to work for the re-election of our dear President Muhammadu Buhari with sincerity and loyalty.
“Please accept my assurances of the highest regards.”
Abraham Obasanjo’s declaration pits him against his father who has been vehemently opposed to the re-election of Buhari.
The ex-President, in January, he released a strongly-worded statement where he advised the president to forget about another term.
He accused Buhari of incompetence and favouring one section of the country over the other.
