Examine the head of anyone that says Nigeria is where it’s supposed to be — Obasanjo



Nigeria’s former President, Olusegun Obasanjo has stated the head of anyone who says the nation is where it is supposed to be should be examined.

The ex-president said this during his speech as the special guest of honour at the Wilson Badejo Foundation’s 15th annual lecture, with the theme, ‘Overcoming the twin challenges of poverty and insecurity in Nigeria’, held in Lagos on Wednesday.

He also enjoined Nigerians to make the right choice come 2023 while warning “if we don’t make the right choice in 2023, things will consume us, and we pray against that one. We must make the right choice in 2023”.

Obasanjo said, “It is either we make the right choice in 2023, because if we make the right choice, we will get there.

“Nigeria isn’t where it is supposed to be today. If anyone says it’s ok where we’re at the moment, then the person’s head needs to be examined.

“My friend, the late Ahmed Joda, used to tell me that God has given us everything a nation needs and there is no need for prayers because if God has given you everything and you squandered it, then something is wrong.

“I told him that even at that, we still need prayers as a nation.”
