Former President Olusegun Obasanjo on Monday said Nigeria does not deserve its present position, urging Nigerians to allow sound judgment to prevail when voting during next month’s general election.
The former president lamented that the nation bleeds under the yoke of “crippling poverty, sheer impunity, economic downturn and insecurity,” saying leaders elected to make things better for the people and do otherwise would “give account to God.”
Obasanjo spoke when the Southwest women leaders including the Iyaloja – General of Nigeria, Chief Folashade Tinubu – Ojo, visited him at his Presidential Hilltop Estate, Abeokuta, Ogun State, on Monday morning.
He said: “Nigeria does not deserve the situation it found itself. Our nation bleeds in poverty, economic downturn, sheer impunity and insecurity.”
The visiting women leaders, which included the National President (Women Wing), Christian Association of Nigeria, were led to Obasanjo’s home by the Iyalode of Yorubaland, Chief Alaba Lawson.
