Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has revealed what world leaders are saying about the incumbent President Muhammadu Buhari.
Former President, Olusegun Obasanjo has revealed the impression of some world leaders about President Muhammadu Buhari.
Speaking with reporters at his Abeokuta home on Thursday, October 1, Obasanjo stated that despite Nigeria’s “mistakes and missteps,” it is not doing badly at 55 as a nation.
He said: “I heard some of the comments of those he (Buhari) met; the comment that probably will not come back to him. He met Clinton for almost one hour and President Clinton, when I joined him for his global initiative talked to me about the impression of our President, it was favourable.
“Gordon Brown and I met him and we talked about issues. The few other leaders who met him gave me their impression and his debut so to say, it has been good. I think we are at the table, what they use to say that Nigeria is not at the table, now we are present at the table.”
He said comments from the world leaders and statemen during the recent UN summit showed that President Muhammadu Buhari did not only have a good outing there, but also helped to place Nigeria at a strategic position for global politics.
