Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has said that although no human being is perfect, the PDP presidential candidate in the just concluded presidential election, Atiku Abubakar, was by far better that President Buhari.
According to the former president, Atiku who was his Vice President when he was in office, is politically, economical and socially more sound than Buhari.
Obasanjo said this over the weekend when the Southwest PDP leaders led by the party’s National Vice Chairman (South West), Dr Eddy Olafeso, visited him at his Pent-House Residence in Abeokuta, Ogun State.
Recall that the former President in a series of letters, slammed President Buhari, saying he was mentally and physically unfit to preside over the affairs of Nigeria.
Speaking at his meeting on Sunday, Obasanjo said
“Politically speaking, you can’t be my friend if you don’t buy into the Nigeria’s project. For me, till death, I will continue to push for a better Nigeria. I said if you compare the two of them Atiku and Buhari with what I know and all I have written about the incumbent, which they have decided to cover up, Atiku is better than the incumbent by far. That’s the point I am making. And nobody is perfect. I am not a perfect person. I have my shortcomings. If I deny my shortcomings, it means I am not being truthful to myself. But, my shortcomings have nothing to do with my love for Nigeria. It has nothing to do with being greedy or selfishness” he said
Recall that in the build up to the 2019 election, Obasanjo reconciled with Atiku and endorsed his candidacy to run against President Buhari in the 2019 presidential election.
