I Stand By Buhari -Obasanjo


Nigeria’s former president, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo has once again confirmed Gen. Buhari has the best man for the number one job of the country.

Obasanjo made this known while launching his controversial book ‘My Watch’ in the United Kingdom, he responded to questions on reports that he had endorsed the presidential candidate of the All Progressive Candidate, General Muhammadu Buhari, adding that his wish is to see Nigeria headed by a strong president.

If you will recalled, Obasanjo’s ‘My Watch’ was banned from selling in Nigeria even though the book was launched late last year.

“Well, whatever you get in the paper and in the press, please yourself, he said, referring to guests at the event who wanted to confirm the reported endorsement.

Obasanjo added that “”What I said and I maintain that and I will say it again and I will do it. When the time comes for me to vote, I will consider the track record of all the candidates that are contesting and I will assess and based on my assessment for who I believe have the best track record to perform the job of the Nigerian president, then he will have my vote and if anybody should know what the job of the Nigerian president requires, I should know.”

He continues by saying that “Nigeria has a population of 180 million and you wouldn’t have anybody other than one person or two persons that can run the affairs of Nigeria? What the hell are we talking about?

“For me there are millions who can run the affairs of Nigeria who are not even coming out. So why should you die on behalf of one who is probably performing as a mediocre. With all due respect.

“Nigeria, if you love it, you would look for the best for Nigeria and I don’t believe that at this point in time we have the best for Nigeria,” he concluded.
