Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has claimed that the Muhammadu Buhari government has performed poorly, describing it as a “failure.”
Obasanjo said this on Monday when he received members of the New Nigeria group at the Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library in Abeokuta Ogun State.
“The first lesson I learnt in my military training is never reinforce failure; what we have now is failure. Never you reinforce failure, let failure be failure,” he said.
According to him, “The truth is this – when you have an ineffective and incompetent government, we are all victims and don’t let anybody deceive you.
“Those of you who are in business, your business could have been better today if we have a competent and effective and performing government.”
He also accused Buhari of having a “poor understanding” of the dynamics of internal politics.
“This time, for us to make it, we need all hands on deck,” Obasanjo stated. “I have publicly said and I mean it that as a party, neither PDP nor APC can get us there; never mind about reforms and apology and all that.”
