Former President, Olusegun Obasanjo has dismissed as fake news, a viral message where he was quoted as endorsing the political prowess of the All Progressives Congress, APC, presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu and disapproving of the military.

Obasanjo in a viral message on Whatsapp was quoted in part to have said: “I am not a politician; I am a decorated soldier, an army general. If you are looking for thoroughbred politician of masters class, visit Lagos Bourdillon, there you’ll find one…” (end of quote)

Reacting to the claim through his Special Assistant on Media, Kehinde Akinyemi, Obasanjo declared he never made any remark at the expense of his noble military profession.

According to the former President, only the military trains personnel to be good managers of men and materials.

The spokesperson maintained that Obasanjo cannot criticize his noble profession for politics that has no formal training.
