Former President, Olusegun Obasanjo has said that the country is flowing with bitterness and sadness in the face of economic and security challenges facing the country.
Obasanjo spoke on Thursday at the Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library in Abeokuta, Ogun State’s capital, where he was presented with a book titled “The Man, The General, and The President,” written by Femmy Carrena.
He said, “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?”
