Atiku Will Be Better President Than Buhari - Obasanjo

Godwin Akomah, Southwest Bureau

Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has said that given the track record of his former Vice -President, Alh. Atiku Abubakar, he would perform better than the incumbent President Muhammadu Buhari, if elected President.

Obasanjo who only four days ago released a 16 - page scathing text, where he urged Buhari to go home peacefully as Nigeria deserves better governance than what he was presently offering, noted that his three predecessors (late Umaru Musa Yaradua, Goodluck Ebele Jonathan and Buhari) have "performed inadequately" in office.

The former Head of States made this known when the wife of Atiku Abubakar, Mrs Titi Abubakar, visited him in Abeokuta, Ogun state, to solicit support for her husband, who is the Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party(PDP), the major challenger of Buhari in the forthcoming February 16 Presidential polls.

Obasanjo who prayed for the success of Atiku as the election day draws closer, declared that even if the PDP Presidential candidate performs poorly after being elected and sworn - in, he would ask Titi Abubakar to join him in mobilising Nigerians not only to speak out but also vote Atiku out.

The elder statesman said that is the beauty of democracy, because it gives the people power to democratically sack an incompetent leader and enthrone a better option.
