Olusegun Obasanjo, a former president of Nigeria, is confident that nothing will interfere with the holding of the general elections in 2023.

Obasanjo’s statement comes amid concerns that the upcoming elections may be delayed as a result of the ongoing crisis brought on by the lack of new naira notes and petrol.

At his penthouse apartment inside the grounds of the Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library (OOPL), Abeokuta, Ogun State, the former president hosted the Board of Trustees (BoT) of the African Democratic Congress (ADC).

The ADC’s national leaders were led by Chukwuka Monye, a previous presidential aspirant, the party’s national chairman, Prof. Ralph Nwosu, and the party’s chairman, Dr. Mani Ibrahim Ahmed.

Obasanjo asserts that the country of Nigeria is going through an intriguing time and urges Nigerians to treat the elections seriously, as is done in developed countries.

The Balogun Owu urged Nigerians to put up their best effort in order to ensure the success of the general elections.

He stated that the 2023 elections in Nigeria are currently the focus of attention from the international world and urged Nigerians, who are the primary stakeholders, to help make the elections successful.

“We are in an interesting period in Nigeria. In less than three weeks, we will be going to the polls; well, I hope nothing will intervene against that. In less than three weeks, we will be electing a leader that will pilot the affairs of Nigeria for the next four years from May.

“I have been in Togo, Ghana and Côte d’Ivoire from the beginning of the week; and they are as concerned about what happens in Nigeria as every Nigerian should be.”
