Nobody Is Perfect, But Atiku Is Far More Better Than Buhari - Obasanjo 3

The former President, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo has insisted that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate in the 2019 general election, Atiku Abubakar, is far more better than incumbent President Muhammadu Buhari.

Obasanjo said this when South-West PDP leaders led by the party’s National Vice Chairman (South West), Dr Eddy Olafeso visited him at his Pent-House residence inside Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library (OOPL), Oke-Mosan, Abeokuta, Ogun State.

The former president, who maintained that he critically compared Buhari and Atiku’s competence before settling for the latter in the last election, bemoaned what he called failure of leadership, saying Nigeria cannot move forward “if we continue the way we are.”

According to him, Nigeria demands a vibrant voice and opposition in PDP with a view to building a virile democracy. He said:

“I said if you compare the two of them (referring to Atiku and Buhari); with what I know and all I have written about the incumbent (President) which they have decided to cover up, Atiku is better than the incumbent by far. That’s the point I am making. And nobody is perfect.

“I am not a perfect person. I have my shortcomings. If I deny my shortcomings, it means I am not being truthful to myself. But, my shortcomings has nothing to do with my love for Nigeria. It has nothing to do with being greedy or selfishness, Obasanjo said.
