Former President, Olusegun Obasanjo, has again opened up on
President Muhammadu Buhari, saying that the former Army General,
has not disappointed him since he assumed office, in 2015.
Obasanjo stated this in an interview with the News Agency of
Nigeria, NAN, on Sunday, at his hilltop residence, in Abeokuta.
While reflecting on the Buhari administration since 2015, Obasanjo
said that the President had done his best to move the country
“Whatever anybody says, President Buhari has not disappointed me
from what I know of him,’’ he said.
He added,that the President had delivered on his core areas of
strength and ability, particularly in the anti-corruption crusade, and
the war against insurgency.
“In my book, I have said that Buhari is not strong on the economy,
and I did not write this to run him down.
“I also used to think that he is not strong in the area of foreign
affairs, but I have realised that he has improved very well.
“He has actually done his best in the areas where we know him to
be strong,” he said.
The Elder Statesman, urged Nigerians not to relent in their support
for Buhari, and not to give up on Nigeria.
“Whatever you might see as bad in Nigeria, other societies have
gone through the same at some period in their history.
