Former President, Olusegun Obasanjo has said that he is no longer at the centre of political activities in Nigeria.

Obasanjo made the comment during a recent meeting with a delegation of the Kogi State group, Okun Development Association (ODA), Daily Trust reports.

“I am open to you if it has to do with the issues relating to national interest and development. But, I will not, when it has to do with any interest that is not open or having national interest as focus,” Obasanjo said when the group asked him for his assistance on political matters.

“Since I have eased myself out of what I will call centre of political activities, I have not eased myself out of the totality of development in Nigeria. This I will welcome and support from any group or association,” he added.

Obasanjo made a dramatic exit from partisan politics in February 2015 when he tore apart his Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) membership card in public.
