Obasanjo gave his support to the ex-military ruler during the launch of MY WATCH in Nairobi, Kenya.

“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?”
“You need to ask [Jonathan] how has he let [the army] go to this extent,”

In the last 2 years or so, Obasanjo has been criticizing President Goodluck JonathaN accusing him of weak leadership and bad governance.
