2023 Election: Don’t Make Wrong Choice – Obasanjo Warns Nigerians
Former President of Nigeria, Olusegun Obasanjo has warned Nigerians against making the wrong decision during the 2023 general election.
mNaija reports that Obasanjo issued the warning on Wednesday, at Wilson Badejo Foundation’s 15th annual lecture with the theme, ‘Overcoming the twin challenges of poverty and insecurity in Nigeria’ held in Lagos.
The elder statesman expressed optimism that if Nigerians make the right choice in 2023, the nation will witness progress.
According to him, making the wrong choice in the election may consume the nation.
He said: “It is either we make the right choice in 2023 because if we make the right choice, we would get there.
“However, if we do not make the right choice in 2023, things would consume us and we pray against that one. We must make the right choice in 2023.”
The Country Still Needs Prayers
The former president also noted that Nigeria has not taken its rightful position because of poverty and insecurity adding that anyone who says the country is fine at the moment needs to be examined.
Obasanjo said: “Nigeria is not where it is supposed to be today. If anyone says it is ok where we are at the moment, then the person’s head needs to be examined.
My friend, late Ahmed Joda, used to tell me that God has given us everything a nation needs and there’s 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 because what is good needs prayers and on the other side too, we still need more prayers.”
