Former president Olusegun Obasanjo says he has no choice candidate for elections.

Obasanjo said this on Wednesday when a youth group from Delta state led by Frank Esanubi, a governorship aspirant, visited him in Abeokuta, Ogun state capital.

Addressing the youth, Obasanjo said his decision to stay away from partisan politics still holds.

In 2015, the former president announced that he had quit partisan politics.

“In the year 2015, I said I would no longer participate in partisan politics. And I still stand by my decision,” he said.

“Everybody, irrespective of his or her political affiliation, is free to come here for advice, I will gladly do that.

“I have no candidate, whatsoever, for any political office. I just believe that things must be done differently in Nigeria to get different results.”

He said since the colonial era, transitions have taken place without taking the people of the grassroots into consideration.

“So, CNM is about the people at the grassroots,” he said, adding: “It is a socio-economic movement where youth and women, especially, will be given the opportunity to appreciate their interests and power.”
