Obasanjo, who said this at the 2018 Ibogun Day Celebration in Ogun State on Wednesday, also said President Muhammadu Buhari would have lost the 2015 election if he had not supported him.

“In 2015, if I didn’t support Buhari, he wouldn’t have won the election. I have what it takes to correct him. Nigeria should not be in the position we are today. Nigeria can be better. God has given us all that we need,” he said.

According to Obasanjo, “I am qualified to speak against Buhari. One, I have done it before. Two, I have shed my blood for this country. Even my biological son has shed his blood. Why can’t I speak about what is best for this country? I am doubly qualified to do that.”



  1. Obasanjo never went to war! General Akinrinade and Col. Adekunle(Black Scorpio) are the true heroes and they have the story…Nigeria gave you your dues and just like you were an ex-president, Nigeria has several other ex-presidents still living. You don’t have absolute say on the federal Govt and no one needs to listen to Obasanjo if they dont want to.
