The national coordinator of Buhari Youth Organisation, Olajuwon Obasanjo, has said that no one can fault President Muhammadu Buhari’s integrity, stressing that the president stood above his peers in the administration of the nation’s finances and resources.
The son of the former president said this while addressing reporters in Abuja on Wednesday.
“Buhari believes in promoting Nigerian youths which is the basis of forming this association (BYO),” he said.
“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.”
He refused to compare the regime of his father with the current administration, in terms of performance, saying both operated under different situations.
He said his support for Buhari had not affected his relationship with his 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,” he said.
“Politics is meant to unite us. It is important we rise above ethnicity, religious bigotry, and primordial sentiments.”
Olajuwon’s father is vehemently opposed to the reelection of Buhari and has since declared support for Atiku Abubakar, presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
In a letter he wrote to Buhari in January, the elder statesman accused the president of shielding corrupt persons in his government.
