Former Senator, Rowland Owie has warned members of the Igbo tribe to beware of ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo.

Owie made the comment after Obasanjo encouraged Igbo politicians to try their luck at the presidency during the 2019 general elections.

“Serious minded South Easterners should ignore Obasanjo. The nearer Obasanjo is to a person, the more dangerous he becomes,” Owie said in a statement to Vanguard.

“Obasanjo was dancing with the late Chuba Okadigbo’s wife at the opening of Apo Mansion while his agents led by a late South West  governor were finalising the impeachment of late Okadigbo.

“I urge the South East to support the emerging ADP and get the Vice President’s slot in 2019 and thereafter take the Presidential slot when Presidency returns to the south,” he added.
