Former President Olusegun Obasanjo declares support for Gen. Muhammadu Buhari | Warns against Coup!

The former president of Nigeria, Olusegun Obasanjo, has finally declared his support for All Progressives Congress (APC) Presidential Candidate, Gen. Muhammadu Buhari. Obasanjo made his views known at an interview with Financial Times during the launch of his autobiography, “My Watch“, which took place in Nairobi, Kenya, Punch reports.

Obasanjo expressed confidence in Buhari and his capabilities to rule the country and effectively address widespread corruption and insecurity that is plaguing Nigeria.



On Buhari being capable of ruling Nigeria & justification for supporting him:The circumstances he (Buhari) will be working under if he wins the elections are different from the one he worked under before, where he was both the executive and the legislature – he knows that. He is smart enough. He is educated enough. He’s experienced enough. Why shouldn’t I support him?

On Buhari’s ability to restore the morale of the Nigerian military: “It is a question of leadership – political and military. I think you need to ask Jonathan how he let the army go to this extent. Many things went wrong: recruitment went wrong; training went wrong; morale went down; motivation was not there; corruption was deeply ingrained; and welfare was bad.”

On his views about the postponed elections: “I sincerely hope that the President is not going for broke and saying ‘look dammit, it’s either I have it or nobody has it’. I hope that we will not have a coup. I hope we can avoid it,” he said.
