Cordinator of Buhari Youth Organisation, 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.
Speaking while addressing journalists on why President Muhammadu Buhari deserved a second term in office, Olujonwo Obasanjo, on Wednesday in Abuja, said no one can fault the president’s integrity and honesty as a leader.
According to PUNCH, the former President Obasanjo’s son who is the National Coordinator of Buhari Youth Organisation, said Buhari stood above his peers in the administration of the nation’s finances and resources.
Olajuwon who refused to compare the regime of his father with the incumbent, saying both operated under different situations, added that youths had benefitted more from programmes and actions of this administration.
“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.”
Olujanwo said his support for Buhari had not in anyway affected his relationship with his father or his father’s presidential choice, Atiku Abubakar.
“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.”
