Nigeria Has No Business With Poverty, Insecurity – Obasanjo
Olusegun Obasanjo

Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has expressed that Nigeria has no business with insecurity and poverty, saying the nation is at crossroads because of its choice of leaders.

Obasanjo stated this on Saturday at the 113th anniversary of King’s College. The anniversary lecture titled, ‘Building the Nigeria of our dreams,’ was organised by the King’s College Old Boys’ Association.

Obasanjo, who led the King’s Week 2022 colloquium which was held at the Kings College, Lagos, stated that Nigeria as a country was poor, insecure, and had other challenges because of its choice of leaders.

‘‘We are politically divided, economically disunited we are nowhere, we are down the drain. Diplomatically, Nigeria is not at the table. Before we had sent troops to Sudan, Serria Lone but today, we can’t send troops to the Republic of Benin. There are three races in the world, white, yellow, and black. For now, America is leading the whites, the Chinese is leading the yellow race, and Nigeria with 225m people is created by God to lead the black race. When we stop disappointing ourselves we can take care of the continent and the black race. Nigeria has no business with poverty, insecurity, or political division.

‘‘It is the advertently or inadvertently choice of our leaders. It is not God’s choice for us. If God hasn’t chosen that for us we can do better. For Nigeria, we have done a few things right but we have not continued to do it right.’’
