Olusegun Obasanjo, Nigeria's former president, has publicly expressed support for the electioneering campaign of Muhammadu Buhari, presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC). Cable reports

Speaking at the launch of My Watch in Nairobi, Kenya on Tuesday, Obasanjo, who served his two terms as president under the same Peoples Democratic Party(PDP) platform that Jonathan is now running on, condemned the postponement of the election.
"The circumstances [Buhari] will be working under if he wins the election are different from the one he worked under before, where he was both the executive and the legislature – he knows that," he said. "It's a question of leadership – political and military. "He's smart enough. He's educated enough. He's experienced enough. Why shouldn't I support him?" 
 On the postponement of the election he said:

"The signs are not auspicious. I don't know whether a script is being played."
 He criticised the administration of President Goodluck Jonathan, accusing him of wasting the country's resources
. "You need to ask [Jonathan] how has he let [the army] go to this extent," he said "Many things went wrong: recruitment went wrong; training went wrong; morale went down; motivation not there; corruption was deeply ingrained; welfare was bad." When asked if he was still nursing further political ambition, he said: "I am an old man and I'm enjoying what I'm doing now… And then you forget I am a farmer; I have to manage my farm."
