Recall that Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential aspirants like former Vice-President, Atiku Abubakar; former Senate President Bukola Saraki; former governor Peter Obi; Governor Aminu Tambuwal, are among those who have said nomination forms were bought for them.
“Today, they are paying N40m. 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 N40m? If you want to buy it, buy it and tell us. You don’t need to lie to us.”

According to Obasanjo, the problems confronting Nigeria at the moment can only be surmounted by good leadership, noting that Nigeria needed a change of leadership.
“If you say, ‘what is wrong with Nigeria’, leadership. If you say, ‘what do you have to do about Nigeria’, leadership. If you say, ‘where are we taking Nigeria? Leadership.’
