Feb 11, 2015 – Obasanjo Endorses Buhari, Supports APC “I Support Him Bcos He’s Educated & Experienced Enough To Handle Security”

Obasanjo Endorses, Supports Buhari, Warns Jonathan Of Coup, Military Take Over In Nigeria If Election Rigged 

Former Nigerian President Olusegun Aremu Obasanjo has openly endorsed All Progressives Congress Party candidate, retired General Muhammadu Buhari.

Obasanjo, a card carrying member of the ruling party, PDP made this known during an interview he granted to Financial Times during his book launch in Nairobi Kenya.

The elder stateman boldly said Buhari who ruled Nigeria from 83 to 85 is fully aware of the challenges facing Nigeria and is more than qualified to lead the country aright.

In his words:

 “The circumstances he (Buhari) will be working under if he wins the elections are different from the one he worked under before, where he was both the executive and the legislature – he knows that. He is smart enough. He is educated enough. He’s experienced enough. Why shouldn’t I support him?”

 “It is a question of leadership – political and military. I think you need to ask Jonathan how he let the army go to this extent. Many things went wrong: recruitment went wrong; training went wrong; morale went down; motivation was not there; corruption was deeply ingrained; and welfare was bad.”

The ex-President who disagreed with the election postponement said he hopes Jonathan would bow out quietly and stop putting his selfish ambition ahead of the well being of Nigeria.

The fearless military man also warned Jonathan that any attempt to manipulate the election could lead to a coup d’etat (violent seizure of the government). Obasanjo added that May 29 handover date can not be changed.

“I sincerely hope that the President is not going for broke and saying ‘look dammit, it’s either I have it or nobody has it’. I hope that we will not have a coup. I hope we can avoid it,” he added.

Obasanjo concluded by saying that Buhari would restore the morale of the military which Jonathan has battered due to his lack of military experience.

He said GEJ betrayed the military by allowing corrupt officials to take over important operations.

Hmmmm a word they say is enough for the wise… Oga on top make u hear ooooo. These Generals don’t joke with words.

I fear for this upcoming election chei! no wonder many people are leaving Nigeria for abroad just to escape the imminent violence.

May God protect us all.

    OBJ is a criminal. the western Nigeria people are always afraid of Hausas Fulani oligarchies. I hate peace when I see no justice. must a northerner always rule Nigeria? people said we are one Nigeria and the north that destroyed Nigeria keep figting for power, is time to take Nigeria back from these warlike normads from chad and niger who call themselves nigerians.

      1999 till date is about 16years now and the westerners and southerners have been ruling. Well, all these do not matter anymore. We all want change and we don’t care from whosoever competent to bring it about. If your condition is ok by the present administration, please go ahead and vote again.

      @Obi whenever you are presenting your case try to be fair and objective. You are coming with a loud voice that Northern oligarchs are claiming born to rule but that is not the case. Since 1999 the power has been shifted to the southern states. Jonathan was given that opportunity to prove that we southerners are more better in leadership and effective to steer the ship of this nation to its final destination but instead, what we are experiencing now is worst than when we are under born to rule as you have indicated. Jonathan could have made a landmark and build a momentum to take this Nation to the next level to the extent that Buhari will not be able to match up with him but what happened? he messed up greatly. We are not saying that Jonathan should solve Nigeria problem once but good governance can be felt even if you are not yet there. Before Jonathan will sink the Titanic Ship, another Captain needs to take over and redirect the ship to safety.

    No military can take over Nigeria. Nigeria has passed that stage.

    Obasanjo is really destroying Nigeria. Obj should go and make peace at home and settle with his children and family whom he has hurt and living in malice with.

    Who told him one needs military experience tto be a better president or to take care of the military.

    How can obj be talking unintelligently this way.

    During his tenure. He chased Atiku, his vice from this country. He ruled alone. Did a lot of ugly things.

    Nigeria will stand or divide. Obj has no more relevance in the dictates of what should happen in Nigeria. His words are mere opinions of a man who thinks he is rich and can manipulate few people with the monies he has stolen. At his age. I wonder.

    Dear Nigerians, First of all Who is Obasanjo? An exconvict, secondly he had ruled Nigeria 3 times no change no transformatiom. Thirdly what did he mean by saying Buhari can take care of our security because he was once a coup ploter 1983. The answer to this question is Nigeria must end up going for Referendum because without Referedum there must be a war and that will become division South and North Nigeria.
    They are all interested in the oil in Niger Delter , this time Niger Deltans are ready to recall the state of (Biafra) if Nigeria is one who the hell Norther owning an oil well in Niger Delter. enough is enough.

    OBJ is always looking for unsolicitated relevance. Who cares who he endorses. He chose Atiku and abandoned him. He chose Yar’Adua, Yar’Adua died. He chose Jonathan, today he has abandoned him. He told us PDP will rule for 50yrs, today he is singing the song of a drowning man. He is endorsing Buhari now, tomorrow he will backstab him. Buhari should beware of his virus. Let OBJ keep his opinion to himself. We Nigerians know better.

    my comment is why all these formal governments should retain power, nothing changing in that country God has blessed Nig with natural allocation resources. according to world rank Nig supposed to be number one in Africans,with high rated increasing poverty.we need new generational political legacy, development create opportunities for citizens ex-governments none of them has good reputation,all of them during their government administration terms they are just used their power authorities stolen federal money transferable to abroad because Nig is a country where there’s lawless law no constitution, corruption has ruling our nation. NIGERIAN YOUTH COUP need to wake up and stand for justice, am not supporting anybody including Buhari and his god father OBJ. during the OBJ regime what particular development this old thief achieve all his government administration office terms, no account on federal reserve and revenue, Nigerian youths time has come need to bring all formal governments to face justice. must stop them not to soak innocent blood God will judge all of them according their work. a country their leader do not value education no human right,

    Nigeria is not going to break-up, i saw some sacrifices and Nigeria leader’s are behinde it.
    The military coup does not work out at the end of the journey, some other country coming to benefit from the Lord blessing upon Nigeria.
    Let us pray Nigerians, father in Jesus name, we ask for your peace over Nigeria,Daddy, let there be peace in Jesus name(AMEN).
    For you said to me in the revelation”That in this 2015, you will subtract and multiply in Nigeria, oh Lord, subtract the bad one in Nigeria and let the good Nigerians be multiply in the Mighty name of Jesus(AMEN).
    Thank you Jesus, *08038433483#
