Former President Olusegun Obasanjo says he is in the position and has what it takes to correct President Muhammadu Buhari.
He added that Buhari would have lost the 2015 election if he hadn’t supported him.
Naija News gathered Chief Obasanjo made the submission during the 2018 Ibogun Day Celebration in Ogun State on Wednesday.
He said, “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.
Recall the former President also recently said God can’t be blamed if peace eludes the country, adding that Nigerians must strive to ensure peace and live in unity with one another.
As the race to the 2019 presidential elections gather momentum, Naija News reports Obasanjo has declared support for the candidacy of Alh. Atiku Abubakar of the PDP.
