Buhari not good with economy, foreign affairs - Obasanjo

15 May 2016, 07:00

Abuja - Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has spoken out on ex-President Goodluck Jonathan and current Head of State, Muhammadu Buhari, describing each man, and their actions, in detail, Naij reports.

While speaking at the third international conference on African development issues, Obasanjo described President Buhari as consistent, having not deviated from his behaviour back when he used to serve under Obasanjo in the military.

In addition, Obasanjo has claimed that Buhari is "not a very hot person when it comes to foreign affairs or economy" but says that he will do well in the fight against Boko Haram due to his previous military training.

"He is not a hot person when it comes to economy. He is not a very hot person when it comes to foreign affairs. But he will do well in matters of military and he will do well in fighting Boko Haram," Obasanjo was reported as saying by Punch.

In describing former President Jonathan, Obasanjo said nothing good of him, calling him "tactically incompetent" and labelling him as the cause of yet another "spate of corruption" in the country.
