2023: Wrong Choice Will Consume Nigeria, Says Obasanjo


Former President Olusegun Obasanjo on Wednesday in Lagos called on Nigerians to make the right choice by electing credible leaders at all levels in the forthcoming general elections, warning that making the wrong choice may consume the nation.

The ex-President made the call while delivering a lecture on Wednesday in Lagos at the Wilson Badejo Foundation’s 15th annual lecture with the theme, ‘Overcoming the twin challenge of poverty and insecurity in Nigeria’.

Obasanjo said the country cannot afford to make the mistake of choosing bad people at the helm of affairs considering the myriad of challenges.

He bemoaned the current state of the nation, calling for more prayers as Africa’s most populous nation goes to the poll in February next year.

He had earlier said that Nigeria has not taken its rightful position because of poverty and insecurity.

“Nigeria is not what it should be today. If anybody says anything to the contrary, then the person’s head needs to be examined,” the ex-President said.

“Nobody will do it for us and nobody needs to be blamed. But the choice is in our hands. You don’t have anybody to blame.

“Is there any choice, that is where prayer is very important? Don’t let us deceive ourselves, we have a choice. It is whether we make the right choice or not. If we don’t make the right choice, we don’t blame anybody but ourselves.”
