The National Leader of the All Progressives Congress , Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, on Tuesday said that ex – President Olusegun Obasanjo is part of some challenges presently confronting Nigeria , noting that it is mainly because Obasanjo did not lay the right foundation when he was president.Obasanjo was Nigeria ’ s president between 1999 and 2007 .
Tinubu made the statement in Lagos while addressing party members at a stakeholders’ meeting of the state chapter .
He said that the President had “ acquitted himself as a leader so far , ” despite the challenges of governance .
The APC leader condemned what he called “ the frequent attacks on Buhari- led administration ” by former President Olusegun Obasanjo .
He said that the criticisms were in bad faith , pointing out that Obasanjo could not stop Nigerians from re -electing Buhari .
“ Our president , President Muhammadu Buhari , has done well . He deserves another term , and we will support him to win because he is our man .
“ Forget about Obasanjo ’ s letter and his frequent attacks on our president . He cannot stop the president because Nigerians would re – elect him .
“ Obasanjo has spent his own time ; he should leave Buhari alone and face his business because he cannot tell us who to vote for .
“ He is part of some of the challenges we are facing in the country today , because he did not lay the right foundation when he was president , ” he said .
Tinubu added that the exit of some members from the APC would also not stop the re -election of President Buhari.
The chieftain said that the party was unshaken by the defections and was on course to recording victories in the 2019 election .
Tinubu said that the results of the Kogi , Katsina and Bauchi bye elections, in which the APC was victorious, were a precursor to the pattern of the general elections.
“ I congratulate the winners in the election and their victory is proof that our party is getting more popular by the day .
“ Those who want to defect can defect , that is their problem . APC remains unshaken and these people will know the reality in the election , ” he said .
He commended the National Chairman of the party , Mr . Adams Oshiomole , saying members were pleased with what he was doing in the party.
He said that the direct primary system was good for democracy , and the party would adopt it to conduct its primaries .
Tinubu urged members to play by the rules in electing candidates at the primaries .
He urged the members to mobilse others to obtain their Permanent Voter Cards as that was necessary for victory in 2019 .
