President Muhammadu Buhari’s performance thus far is at best “mediocre”, according to ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo.
Obasanjo noted this in a statement on Wednesday where he denied reports that he was supporting Buhari for re-election in 2019.
The statement read: “For the record, Obasanjo has not and cannot endorse failure.
“His position remains as stated in his January 23, 2018 statement on the state of the nation. Chief Obasanjo sympathises with the plight of the campaigners and supporters of Buhari.
“He doesn’t believe dishing out fake news that can only be believed by imbeciles will turn black into white.
“Nigerians know that Chief Obasanjo has only spoken the truth about widening poverty, alienation and social disunity and near disintegration of the country through Buhari’s incompetence.
“Obasanjo will continue to exercise his right to free speech and no amount of hate speech will assuage Nigerians who are in need of a brand new leadership.
“The mediocre performance of Buhari cannot be described by anybody as ‘superlative’ even by morons not the least President Obasanjo.”
