Former President Olusegun Obasanjo Monday said Nigeria would have made remarkable progress if his successors had continued with the policies and programmes of his administration.
He declared that while the late former President Umaru Yar’Adua reversed some of his policies, the succeeding administration of ex-President Goodluck Jonathan also slipped into massive corruption, which his (Obasanjo) regime fought to a standstill.
He also said though President Muhammadu Buhari may not be actively knowledgeable about economy and foreign affairs matters, he believed in the current leader’s fight against graft and insecurity.
Obasanjo spoke as the special guest of honour at an international conference organised by the Covenant University, Ota, Ogun State.
The event was attended by the university’s Chancellor, Bishop David Oyedepo, Nigeria’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations, Prof Joy Ogwu, and Executive Vice Chairman, Ibadan School of Government and Public Policy, Dr Tunji Olaopa, among other dignitaries.
