Former Nigerian president Olusegun Obasanjo has spoken out about his thoughts on the effectiveness of current presidents, saying that in the past, people made good decisions on who should rule them based on how they actually fared in office.
According to the Nigerian Tribune, the former president made the remarks as the evening's guest of honor and keynote speaker for the National Daily Newspaper in Lagos. In his speech, he reportedly focused on how people have failed to choose the right leader to lead them, which has led to poor performance on the part of leaders.
Obasanjo, who disclosed that people in the past made smart decisions on who to lead them, went on to highlight the importance of having the proper leader in charge in achieving excellence and good performance.
He stated it this way: "In the past, people made the appropriate choice on who to rule them, and there were good performances from those that were put in positions of authority. With conviction, he stated, "Excellence is only possible when the right leader is in charge."
It's safe to assume that in Nigeria's recent presidential election, Olusegun Obasanjo supported Peter Obi, the candidate of the Labour Party.
I'm curious as to your thoughts on this claim. Don't be shy about sharing your opinions down below.
