“Let me tell you emphatically that President Buhari will contest again. Don’t listen to letter writers like Obasanjo. He has been President twice, so he should keep his letter in Otta for himself. “If anyone will caution President Buhari, it should not be Obasanjo. “If you check your records very well, he remains the most corrupt President ever. He came into office with less than N20,000 and built the multi-billion naira Otta farm, library project and hilltop mansion.
“This is why I am in Ekiti to tell our people not to listen to Obasanjo. He met the economy in a comatose. Today, President Buhari has raised foreign reserve from $23 billion to $47 billion, while the menace of Boko Haram has been defeated. “Some people are out to destabilise his government. We want Nigerians to embrace love, peace and show understanding.” “Some people are out to destabilise his government. We want Nigerians to embrace love, peace and show understanding.”
