Olusegun Obasanjo, Nigeria’s former president has opened up on the emergence of Muhammadu Buhari as the country’s leader.
Obasanjo, while speaking in at a reception held in his honour at the Government House, Jalingo, Taraba state on Friday, August 19, 2016 said he and four other notable Nigerians brought President Buhari to salvage the country from its challenges.
He said: “Three or four other of us from different part of the country got together and said to ourselves what do we do?
“We said what is the problem with us and why are we still not growing. We got talking and knew we needed to do something.
“What do we need to deal with for this Nigeria of ours to become what God has created it to be? A land flowing with milk and honey, that is the intention of God for creating Nigeria,” the former president added.
Obasanjo maintained that Buhari had not disappointed Nigeria adding that “he will overcome the challenges facing the country.”
The ex-president however said Nigeria needed to get its acts right in the area of politics, governance and leadership for the country to develop.
