FORMER President of Nigeria, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo has described the country as ‘a land flowing with bitterness and sadness.‘
Apparently worried about the current socio-economic and political challenges facing the country, President Obasanjo said on Thursday that the Nigeria had drifted from the original plan God had for her.
“My prayer is that all of us will have something to contribute to making this country what God has created it to be – a land flowing with milk and honey,’’ Obasanjo said in Abeokuta, Ogun State.
“Right now, it is a land flowing with bitterness and sadness, that is not what God wants this country to be.
“We must change the narrative, we must talk to ourselves in the civilized language.
“There is nowhere you go in this country that you will not see geniuses in any section of the country. So, why should we look down on ourselves?”
