Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, a former president of Nigeria, has cautioned that the 2023 general election might make or destroy the nation if “we do not watch it.”
When the Most Reverend Daniel Okoh, President of the Christian Association of Nigeria, paid him a courtesy call at his penthouse residence in the Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library in Abeokuta, the capital of Ogun State, Obasanjo made this statement.
In a statement signed by his Special Assistant on Media, Kehinde Akinyemi, Obasanjo issued a warning that politicians had the power to cause chaos that, if ignored by leaders, might make or destroy the nation.
“If we don’t watch the next election, it might make or break Nigeria,” he remarked. And I hope it will help Nigeria.
“If you stand on the truth, you stand for justice and equity, it is then that politicians will not be able to mess us around and I will say it with all sense of responsibility now if we do not watch it, the politicians will wreck this country and we will all regret it.
“And where can we look for salvation, that is where you religious leaders have a significant role to play.
