Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has revealed the reason for the many failures and stagnation of Nigeria as a country.
The former President Obasanjo said the choices of Nigerians were the reasons for our current situation as a country. He said this on Saturday at the presentation of the African Democratic Congress (ADC) candidates on Saturday ahead of 2019 general elections.
Obasanjo stressed the need for Nigeria to take her place in the comity of nations beyond the African continent.
He said, “God did not create Nigeria to be a failed country; God created Nigeria to be one of the leading countries among the comity of nations.”
“That we are not there is not the faulut of God; that we are not there is the conscious and unconscious choice of people of Nigeria.”
He added that; ‘I just don’t believe that when you are confronted with a bad situation, you should be wringing your hands and say ‘well, what do we do? You should sit down and think, and look at the situation and say what is wrong?”
Obasanjo advised the government and people of Nigeria to be proactive in tackling the many challenges of the country.
