Nigeria’s former President, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, on Wednesday, said he is most qualified to criticise President Buhari, having presided over the affairs of the country at different times.
He said this at the 2018 Ibogun Day celebration in Ogun State. He said, “I know Buhari and he too knows me. Till the day I die, Buhari will continue to address me as ‘sir.’ .
In 2015, if I didn’t support Buhari, he wouldn’t have won the election. I have what it takes to correct him. Nigeria should not be in the position we are today. Nigeria can be better. God has given us all that we need.
I am qualified to speak against Buhari. One, I have done it before. Two, I have shed my blood for this country. Even my biological son has shed his blood. Why can’t I speak about what is best for this country? I am doubly qualified to do that.”
