Olujonwo Obasanjo, son of former president, Olusegun Obasanjo, visited President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa on Thursday, November 1, 2018, which is two weeks after he officially joined the president’s re-election campaign team.
The 34-year-old former president’s son pledged his commitment towards ensuring Buhari is re-elected in the 2019 presidential election in September, said the current administration has begun the process of laying a solid foundation for future generations and urged Nigerian youths to back Buhari for a second term in office.
“The ingenuity of the current administration in proffering solutions is highly commendable. No human is perfect, no government is perfect, only the Creator of heaven and earth embodies perfection. We are on the right path and should not deviate.
“The youths of our great nation should join hands and support the progress and giant strides of President Buhari, he is working commendably to free us from past bondage and captivity.”
Olujonwo’s support for Buhari’s re-election is sure not going to go well with his father who has relentlessly criticized the current government since January 2018 and has publicly endorsed his former vice president, Atiku Abubakar, of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) to beat Buhari in the 2019 presidential election, as he believes Atiku can do a better job as president.
