The elder statesman and former President of Nigeria, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, has decried the current socio-political strangulation in Nigeria. He disclosed his view at the Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library in Abeokuta, during the presentation of a book in his honour titled “The Man, The General, and The President.”
Soberly, Obasanjo stated: “My prayer is that all of us will have something to contribute to making this country what God has created it to be – a land flowing with milk and honey.
“Right now, it is a land flowing with bitterness and sadness, that is not what God wants this country to be.
“We must change the narrative, we must talk to ourselves in the civilized language.
“There is nowhere you go in this country that you will not see geniuses in any section of the country. So, why should we look down on ourselves?”
