Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has said President Muhammadu Buhari can seek a re-election.

Obasanjo, who was reacting a report that he had advised  the president against seeking another election, was, however,  not specific about 2019.

The former president said he did not, at any time, authorise Alex Nwokedi to speak for him on any issue.

He described the report as false and sheer imagination of the author, adding that the last time he had any form of communication with  Alex Nwokedi was three years ago.

“My belief is that democracy allowed for anybody including President Buhari for that matter to contest any election and it is the prerogative rights of Nigerians to vote or not to vote for them,” read a statement issued on behalf of the ex-president by Kehinde Akinyemi, his media aide.

“I have not communicated with Alex in the last three years, so how a story could be credited to me, when I did not authorise such or communicate with him in the last three years?

“I condemn in the highest manner the story and those behind it. And for those behind it, they are simply enemies of democracy and freedom of expression,” he said.
