Prior to the 2015 Presidential Election, former president Olusegun Aremu Obasanjo threw his weight behind the All Progressives Congress candidate, Muhammadu Buhari. He openly supported his candidature and endorsed him as the incoming president of the nation.
Three years down the line, Obasanjo has changed his rhythm, condemning the Buhari administration, describing it as a failure.
Obasanjo went further to discredit the ambition of Buhari seeking a second term in office, saying that even morons would not describe the mediocre performance of President Buhari as superlative.
In a statement made by the former president Obasanjo, he reiterated that he would not endorse failure, adding that he had not shifted ground on his open letter to Buhari, which he wrote on January 23, 2018.
In the January letter, Obasanjo had scored Buhari low on economy and security, accusing him of running a clannish administration, among others.
The statement further read, “For the record, Obasanjo has not and cannot endorse failure.
“His position remains as stated in his January 23, 2018 statement on the state of the nation. Chief Obasanjo sympathises with the plight of the campaigners and supporters of Buhari.
