Former President Olusegun Obasanjo, has come hard on those that believe the present situation of Nigeria is good enough.
VANTAGE NEWS reports that Obasanjo also warned Nigerians against making the wrong choice during the 2023 general election.
Obasanjo issued the warning on Wednesday, at Wilson Badejo Foundation’s 15th annual lecture with the theme, ‘Overcoming the twin challenges of poverty and insecurity in Nigeria’ held in Lagos
Obasanjo, who decried the increasing poverty and insecurity across the country, also noted that Nigeria has not taken its rightful position as a result.
He said, “Nigeria is not where it is supposed to be today. If anyone says it is ok where we are at the moment, then the person’s head needs to be examined.
“My friend, late Ahmed Joda, used to tell me that God has given us everything a nation needs and there’s no need for prayers because if God has given you everything and you squandered it, then something is wrong.
“I told him that even at that, we still need prayers as a nation because what is good needs prayers and on the other side too, we still need more prayers.”
