Former President Obasanjo speaks on Buhari at the villa being from Sudan

Former President of Nigeria, Olusegun Obasanjo, has stated that he does not agree with those people who claim that there is another Buhari from Sudan in the Presidential villa.

Obasanjo said this while answering questions in a virtual interview with Historian, Toyin Falola, on Sunday.

He said, “I thought I knew President Buhari because he worked with me. But I used to ask people, is it that I have not read him well or read him adequately or is it that he has changed from the Buhari that I used to know? I am not subscribing to the people who say we have a new Buhari from Sudan and all that nonsense.”

“I know what I believed was his limitations and I have written about it – he wasn’t strong in economics, not all of us are strong in anything but you need to have sufficient knowledge of it for you to direct the affairs. He wasn’t particularly too strong in foreign affairs but I thought he was strong enough in the Military.”


The ex President further expressed his worry over the security challenges in the country. He urged President Mohammadu Buhari to sit up and address the issue once and for all.

Speaking about the new service Chiefs, he said that the replacement isn’t something to be joyous about, adding that he will comment on their performance after 3 or 6 month.

Obasanjo has been vocal about the present administration in recent times. It could be recalled he once criticized the Buhari-led administration last year, during the handling of the covid-19 pandemic.
