Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has said that President Muhammadu Buhari might not be grounded in both the economy and foreign affairs, he is doing well in fighting Boko Haram and corruption.
Obasanjo made the statement while speaking on Monday at the 3rd Covenant University International Conference on African Development Issues tagged, “Driving Inclusive and Sustainable Development in Africa: Models, Methods and Policies”.
President Buhari served under me and I know him a little bit. He hasn’t deviated from what I knew him for. Actually he is not a perfect man; indeed no leader can be perfect.
Buhari might not be grounded in both the economy and foreign affairs, he is doing well in fighting Boko Haram and in his anti-corruption crusade. I am very optimistic as far as Nigeria is concerned because we have somebody that will do it well as president.
According to DailyPost, the former president also described the acquisition of exotic cars by senators as absolute nonsense. “After given the money for cars and houses allowances to the senators, yet they appropriated special funds for cars,” he said.
