The former President of Nigeria Olusegun Obasanjo is saying the All Progressive Congress Presidential candidate Buhari will perform much more better than President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan if given the oppoturnity to Rule.Obasanjo made this statement known in an interview with Financial TIMES at lunch of his autobiograghy titled MY WATCH in Kenya.

“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?,” he said.

He continue by saying he believes Buhari will effectively going to handle insecurity and corruption.
He also said he(Buhari) will fight and defeat Boko Haram insurgency.He further said GEJ betrayed then armed forces by allowing corruption undermine their operations.

“It is a question of leadership – political and military. I think you need to ask Jonathan how he let the army get 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,” he said.

He also added that it saddens him the rate at which the nation’s resources were dwindling. He said when he left office, Nigeria had $45bn in its reserve but the resources had been depleted by more than half despite the increase in oil prices.
