Obasanjo gives condition for supporting Buhari’s re-election in 2019

Former president, Olusegun Obasanjo, has revealed that he would only support President Muhammadu Buhari for re-election in 2019 after a review of his performance towards the end of his current four-year term.

In an interview with BBC’s Focus on Africa on Friday, Obasanjo also rated Buhari’s administration, which is now more than two years old.
He declared that he was not disappointed in Buhari’s government.
According to him, the current president has performed well in his areas of strength, which includes fighting corruption and the Boko Haram insurgency.
“President Buhari, I have said, has not disappointed me because the areas which we knew he was strong, he has performed fairly well,” Obasanjo said.

However, Obasanjo admitted that not “everyone will be satisfied” with Buhari’s anti-corruption war.
