An erstwhile leader of Nigeria, President Olusegun Obasanjo has reacted to the current state of the nation.
Obasanjo while qualifying Nigeria, identified it as “dripping in bitterness and sadness,” he said even though the country is meant to flow with milk and honey, it has failed for poor leadership.
The general while receiving a book, “The Man, The General and The President,’ authored by Femmy Carenna at his Presidential Library on Thursday addressed the issues with Nigeria.
Obasanjo 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 civilised 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?”
