The Presidency on Tuesday said it will not comment on the letter released by former President Olusegun Obasanjo.
Obasanjo had advised President Muhammadu Buhari against seeking re-election in 2019.
Obasanjo, in a lengthy and strongly-worded statement, also promoted what may become a political party, Coalition for Nigeria, CN.
Obasanjo further lambasted the All Progressives Congress (APC) and the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), insisting that they cannot solve Nigeria’s problems.
“I, therefore, will gladly join such a Movement when one is established as Coalition for Nigeria, CN, taking Nigeria to the height God has created it to be. From now on, the Nigeria eagle must continue to soar and fly high”, he said.
“CN, as a Movement, will be new, green, transparent and must remain clean and always active, selflessly so.”
When accosted by State House correspondents, Senior Special Assistant on Media and publicity, Garba Shehu, maintained sealed lips.
Pressed further, Shehu simple replied “We won’t comment now.”
