Why I’m supporting Buhari – Obasanjo’s Son
Former President Olusegun Obasanjo‘s son, Olujonwo Obasanjo says since politics is not war, he has every right to support the re-election bid of Buhari as against his father’s choice, Atiku.
According to PUNCH, Olujuwon who is the Coordinator of Buhari Youth Organisation disclosed this on Wednesday in Abuja, while addressing journalists on why President Muhammadu Buhari deserved a second term in office.
He said no one can fault the president’s integrity and honesty as a leader.
Olajuwon who refused to compare the regime of his father with the incumbent, saying both operated under different situations, added that youths had benefited more from programmes and actions of this administration.
He also added that his support for Buhari had not in anyway affected his relationship with his father or his father’s presidential choice, Atiku Abubakar.
“Buhari believes in promoting Nigerian youths which is the basis of forming this association (BYO). This government has empowered the youths to go into farming and other entrepreneurship.
“This government is laying a good foundation for an expanded economic base and infrastructure development.”
“This government is leading us towards economic diversification as this nation is blessed with vast resources. I believe in this government as an individual and I’m supporting Mr President. I can’t speak on behalf of my father.
“I’m here as an individual, adult, and someone who believes in this government. Politics can’t separate me and my father. We are still one loving family; our relationship is cordial.
“Politics is meant to unite us. It is important we rise above ethnicity, religious bigotry, and primordial sentiments.
“When you get to certain stage and point in your life, you can choose your path. My father remains my father despite different political ideologies.”
