Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has commended President Muhammadu Buhari for his achievements in office so far, so saying there is need to encourage him to do more.
Obasanjo also appealed to leaders and youths in Africa to embrace change to tackle the continent’s challenges.
Speaking on Thursday with CNN’s Christiane Amanpour, the former President called on African youths not to accept the status quo, tasking them on the need for them to make bitter sacrifices.
On the challenges facing the African continent, he said there is need to change from the status quo.
He said, “There are many challenges. How do we feed our population that is supposed to double in about a generation from now? How do we provide jobs for them and employment? Now, these are the challenges. It cannot be business as usual. We cannot sit in the cool and comfort of our past and think that we will be able to bring about change. Change has to come.”
