Former Nigerian president, Olusegun Aremu Obasanjo has claimed that the President-elect Buhari might not change Nigeria in the coming years.
In a meeting with the South-West women leaders in Abeokuta, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo made it known that the president-elect Muhammadu Buhari might not be able to change Nigeria in the near future because the damages the present government have caused is not something that can be amended in just four years.
Nigeria is currently in a state of havoc with problems like the fuel scarcity, terrorism, low power generation amongst others so with all these, I don’t think the president-elect will be able to change this great nation overnight. Obasanjo urged Nigerians that the new government of Buhari will be inheriting a very bad government with other debts attached to it, and for people to smile again, they will have to endure a bit because it takes identifying the wrong turn to know the right one.
