Obasanjo affirms that Buhari’s government has performed way below expectations. The former President also buttresses the fact that President Muhammadu Buhari, “Is weak in the knowledge and understanding of the economy,” Obasanjo lamented.
“The lice of poor performance in government-poverty, insecurity, poor economic management, nepotism, gross dereliction of duty, condonation of misdeed-if not outright encouragement of it, lack of progress and hope for the future, lack of national cohesion and poor management of internal political dynamics and widening inequality – are very much with us today,” Obasanjo made this known in a 13-page statement titled : “The Way Out:A Clarion Call for Coalition for Nigeria Movement,” at the beginning of the year.
