Lagos - Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has publicly endorsed the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Muhammadu Buhari as his candidate in the presidential election, reports Punch.

Obasanjo's endorsement is coming days after he vowed not to speak on the elections until after the polls.

The former president broke his vow during the launch of his book, "My Watch" in Kenya on Monday.

He said he is supporting Buhari because the APC presidential candidate is smart enough to tackle the myriad of problems bedeviling the country now.

He expressed the view that Buhari would be well equipped to combat corruption and restore the fighting spirit to an army that has struggled in the face of the onslaught by Boko Haram.

This is the first time Obasanjo has come out openly to support Buhari.
