Former president Olusegun Obasanjo has rated the performance of President Muhammadu Buhari high. The former president who was answering questions from journalists in Jalingo, Taraba State capital, Friday said he was not disappointed with Buhari, stressing that the incumbent was on the right track ever though more need to be done on the economic front.
“I know what Buhari is capable of doing and l also know what he is not capable of doing,” the ex-president stated, and denied newspaper reports that he expressed disappointment over his performance.
“Whoever reported that l was disappointed with the administration of President Buhari that person is a murderer,” Obasanjo said.
He also expressed satisfaction with the commitment shown by the president administration towards executing the Mambilla hydro-power project, which stressed is very vital to Nigeria’s quest for economic transformation.
“The Mambilla hydro-power project is capable of generating 50 percent of the electricity needs of the country therefore there is the need to do it,” he stated.
The former president said he did his best to ensure the take up of the project, but lamented that his predecessors did not accord the project the serious attention it deserves.
