Buhari Has Not Disappointed Me” — Obasanjo
Former Nigerian President, Olusegun Obasanjo has said the administration of the country’s current leader Muhammadu Buhari has not disappointed him.
“President Buhari, I have said, has not disappointed me because the areas which we knew he was strong, he has performed fairly well,” Obasanjo told BBC’s Focus on Africa, singling out Buhari’s scorecard in the fight against corruption and the Boko Haram insurgency.
But the former leader conceded that not “everyone will be satisfied” with Buhari’s anti-corruption war, The Guardian reports.
Obasanjo, however, insisted he would only support Buhari for re-election in 2019, should Buhari seek it, after he must have reviewed his performance towards the end of his current 4-year term.
