Atiku would have been a better president– Obasanjo
Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has said that former Vice President Atiku Abubakar would have performed better in office than President Muhammadu Buhari as president of Nigeria.
While featuring on BBC Yoruba, he compared what Atiku could have done better than Buhari.
He said: “What I am saying is that where we are today, our present situation, if you look at those who are there today and our boss, I insist that Atiku will do better than them. Atiku is not an angel, he had offended people including me but he asked for forgiveness and I forgave him due to my religion.
“As a Christian, the God I serve said forgive those who offend you and I did just that. So when he came to me with a Christian and Muslim clergy, begging that i forgive. should I refuse when I’m not God?
“I did not say his past behaviour was not bad but none of us is a complete and whoever feels his complete should come out. But what I’m saying is that where we are today, Atiku will do better than them if he was given the chance.”
