Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has praised President Muhammadu Buhari for his achievements in office within the past two years.
According to him, there was need to encourage Buhari to do more for the Nigerian people.
He said this on Thursday when he appeared on CNN’s global affairs interview programme hosted by Chief International Correspondent, Christiane Amanpour.
“President Buhari has not disappointed me. Yes, he is fighting corruption, he is fighting insurgency.
“We are not there yet and it is not a one night wonder. With what he has done, we should credit him and encourage him to do more,” Obasanjo told Amanpour when asked if the state of Buhari’s health and Nigeria’s economy worries him.
On the challenges facing the African continent, he said there was need to change from the status quo.
He said: “There are many challenges. How do we feed our population that is supposed to double in about a generation from now? How do we provide jobs for them and employment?
“Now, these are the challenges. It cannot be business as usual. We cannot sit in the cool and comfort of our past and think that we will be able to bring about change. Change has to come.”
