Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has expressed regrets for supporting the presidential ambition of incumbent president, Muhammadu Buhari in 2015.
Obasanjo disclosed this during a chat with a blogger, Ifedayo Agoro who he met on a plane.
Agoro shared the details of their one on one conversation via her official Twitter account, revealing that she met the former president recently and sat beside him on the plane.
According to her, the former President said.
“I made a mistake supporting Buhari, he knew nothing about the economy. We thought he would fight corruption and insecurity, then hire people who know about economy and infrastructure. Big mistake.”
The former president also accused Nigerian youths of not having a commonality of purpose to fight the old guard in politics.
He noted that until the young people in Nigeria shows the determination to change the political leadership in the country, thing will not change.
