A former president, Olusegun Obasanjo, has said President Muhammadu Buhari must earn  his support for his rumoured second term bid   with a strong overral performance.

Speaking in an interview with the BBC Hausa Service on Saturday, Obasanjo said that Buhari has so far done well to address some of the problems he met on ground.

He said the Nigerian President started dealing with the problem of bribery, corruption and the war against insurgency.

“It is not everybody that will be satisfied with the way he is fighting bribery but the important thing is that he has started waging war against the problem.

“The same way we know that with his status as a retired soldier, he will try his best to find a solution to the problem of insurgency,” he said.

On whether the President will have his support in 2019, he said: “If he (Buhari) says he will re-contest, I will look at his overall performance before I take a decision. I voted for him two years ago because I could vote for anyone besides Goodluck Jonathan.”
