Obasanjo Says Nigeria is Dripping with Bitterness, Sadness
Nigeria's Former President, Olusegun Obasanjo says Nigeria is dripping with bitterness and sadness in the wake of the insecurity and economic challenges facing the country.
This, he argued, is contrary to what God destined the country to be.
Obasanjo made this known in Abeokuta; the Ogun State capital on Thursday at the unveiling of a book authored by Femmy Carrena in his honour and titled “The Man, The General, The President”.
He said God has created Nigeria to be a land flowing with milk and honey.
Obasanjo noted that Nigeria has been destined to lead the black race, but failure of leadership has impeded the country from taking its place in the comity of developed nations.
To put Nigeria on the right footing, the former President said education must take the forefront.
According to him, over 14 million out-of-school children must be returned to school.
