Buhari wouldn’t have won if I didn’t support him, says Obasanjo

Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has said   President Muhammadu Buhari would not have won the 2015 presidential election without his support.

He also urged Ogun State Governor, Ibikunle Amosun, to let God decide the next governor of the state.

Obasanjo spoke on Wednesday during the annual Ibogun-Olaogun Day celebration in Ibogun in the Ifo Local Government Area of the state.

Obasanjo said he had what it took to correct Buhari, adding that Nigeria should be in a better position than it was presently.

He said, “Buhari will continue to  address me as ‘sir.’ In 2015, if I didn’t support Buhari, he wouldn’t have won the election.

“I have what it takes to correct him.  Nigeria should not be in the position we are today.  Nigeria can be better.  God has given us all that we need.

“I am qualified to speak against Buhari.  One, I have done it before.  Two, I have shed my blood for this country.  Why can’t I speak about what is best for this country.  I am doubly qualified to do that.”

Obasanjo also said his choice and that of Amosun, who was also at the event, did not align regarding who becomes the next governor of the state.

The elder statesman, however, advised the people to support whoever emerged governor.

He cautioned politicians against sponsoring violence in the state, declaring that there was no reason for the state not to have a peaceful election.
