Former President Olusegun Obasanjo says Nigeria and its citizens are getting away with many anomalies because God has chosen to be patient with the country.
Obasanjo spoke on Thursday in Abuja at the public presentation of a book entitled, “The LetterMan: Inside the ‘Secret’ Letters of former Nigerian President, Olusegun Obasanjo”, written by Premium Times’ Editor-in-Chief, Musikilu Mojeed.
According to the former president, Nigeria is blessed with all the resources the country needs to prosper yet unable to to harness the opportunities.
His words, “Only this morning, I heard something that shocked me; here at our door, Chad.
“When Idris Dabi was killed or died, some people said he was shot from the back when he was in the war front.
“We didn’t do anything about that. I believe, to say the least, that it is not good enough.
“Again, I believe that God is in Nigeria, because God loves us so much that we got away so many stupid things.
“I sincerely hope that God’s patience have no limit of elasticity. Because if it does, there will be a day that God will say look, I have had enough.
“And if God says he has had enough, it doesn’t matter; Musikilu can write 20 books on letter men and letter women, it won’t help us.
“So, I believe that the right lessons must be learned. We have all that we need to have. God gave us all that we need to have. That we are not doing what we need to do, God is not to blame. We should blame ourselves.”
