Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has denied saying those looking for a thorough-bred politician should go to Bourdillion, stressing that only the military trains personnel to be good managers.

According to a statement by Obasanjo’s media aide Kehinde Akinyemi, his principal never made any comment at the expense of the military, a “noble profession”.

He said the unverified viral WhatsApp message, authenticated by a faceless group called “National Patriots”, claimed that Obasanjo said, “If you are looking for a thoroughbred politician of masters class, visit Lagos Bourdillon”.

However, he quoted his principal as saying that “Only the military trains personnel to be good managers of men and materials.

“So, I cannot disparage my noble profession for politics that has no formal training. This is false and fake,” Obasanjo added.
