Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has appealed to Nigerians to make the right choice ahead of the 2023 general elections as the wrong choice will consume the whole.
According to the reports, Obasanjo made the call when he spoke 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.
Obasanjo 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″.
“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, the 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,” Obasanjo added.
