President Jonathan's performance is below average - Obasanjo

Former President, Olusegun Obasanjo has rated President Goodluck Jonathan's performance as below average.

Obasanjo spoke during an encounter with book writers in Abeokuta, Ogun State, as part of activities marking the popular Ake Festival.

"His performance is below average. I will not accept responsibility for his performance. There is nobody that gets such a position without being helped."

The former President also debunked the insinuations that he had selected Jonathan as the running mate to the late President Musa Yar'Adua because he knew the latter was sick.

"Yar'Adua told me he was well. He showed me his medical report and I even consulted experts", he said.

Meanwhile, the Presidency on Friday said a statement credited to Obasanjo that President Goodluck Jonathan's performance is below average was "not true and in error."

A Senior Special Assistant to the President on Public Affairs, Dr. Doyin Okupe, described Obasanjo's statement as untrue and baseless.

"If indeed former President Obasanjo said that, that statement was in error because no government since independence has done close to 50 per cent of what this administration has done in less than four years," Okupe said.
