Nigeria has been poorly managed in the past eight years - Obasanjo

Former President Olusegun Obasanjo on Sunday said Nigeria had been poorly managed for eight years, telling Nigerians to be patient with the incoming administration of President-Elect, Muhammadu Buhari, to correct the prevailing abnormalities.
He said this during a visit of a delegation of South-West women leaders, under the leadership of Iyalode of Yorubaland,Chief Alaba Lawson, to his Abeokuta Hilltop residence.                                     
Obasanjo noted that it would take a sizable time for Buhari to correct the anomalies.
In a report made available by PUNCH, the ex president who also ruled for eight years said, “The country had been poorly managed in the last eight years, and it will take some time for Buhari’s government to correct the anomalies. But I want to him not to be frightened.
“When I came in 1999, there was no fuel, there was no power. The situation was like this, and I thought we have put that one behind us. The man that is coming on board has a lot of experience in terms of governance.
“He is not a green horn. We have both worked together in administering, then as a military Head of State and we did it well. Nigerians need to exercise patience because what have been destroyed in eight years cannot be rebuilt in a day.
“Let’s give him time. Let’s pray for him and let’s cooperate with him. We are all concerned about the present situation of Nigeria. The expectation is very high but at the same time, there is a lot of goodwill internally and externally for the incoming government.
“Once the incoming administration realises this and takes every step, particularly in the first three months,when people will be watching and counting, I think for me, we will get there. 
*Coughs* This is a proverbial case of pot calling kettle black Mr ex president..
