Buhari showers praises on Obasanjo at Ogun state's 40th anniversary celebration

While speaking at the presidential luncheon to celebrate Ogun state's 40th anniversary in Abeokuta yesterday February 2nd, President Buhari showered praises on former President Olusegun Obasanjo. He said Obasanjo tolerated him and his excesses while he served as Minister of Petroleum under his administration in 1976.


“I express my thanks to General Obasanjo, who, as head of state, made me minister of petroleum and tolerated me for three-and-the-half-years. He tolerated me because God knows and he knows that I am not used to working as hard as he used to, but he allowed me to last that long and allowed me to work. If you go into records, that government made so much investment and infrastructural development in the petroleum industry. Two refineries were built, Warri and Kaduna. More than 20 depots were built; more than 3,500 pipelines were laid; and we were exporting refined products of 100,000 barrels per day. But what do we have today?”he said

Buhari is not supposed to hold public office anymore, considering he does not have any idea to tackle challenges of the 21st century. His ideas then is now irrelevant today. Dude is suppose to focus on his farm!

It's obvious that President Buhari is unfair to Nigerians who expect so much from him and very unserious/biased in his attempt to fight corruption in media houses anyway. it's no more news or surprising that he is pushing northern agenda; he continue to show case himself as president of certain region. Over 8 months in office he is yet to prove that he is the president of FRN. This is pathetic and worrisome.

Corruption is rooted in this country. You have a president that is beginning to play to the gallery. This kind of association with perceived corrupt personalities does not single the president out as a saint. I wipe for my country... We are just recycling the same generation of thieves as leaders.

Thanks for this comment. I wonder if Nigerians really think. Recycling the same set of retards that have held the country down for the past 50 years.
