Former Vice President of Nigeria, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo has enjoined those with the opportunity to be in power to do their utmost best to justify the opportunity.

The elder state-man made this appellation while Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki, on Saturday played host to him at the Government house on Saturday 

Obaseki received Obasanjo who was on a courtesy visit at the Government House in Benin City, the Edo State capital.

Commending the governor for the warm reception, the former President charged Nigerians not to lose faith in the country.

He noted, “The situation in Nigeria is hard, but no bad situation can’t be made good. The question is, when and how? All we should be saying to those who have the opportunity now is to do their best. It is indeed an opportunity for you to run the affairs of your country and look after your people. It is an opportunity.


“It should not be me but we; not mine but ours; not my tomorrow but our tomorrow, and not my generation but all generations, including the generation coming. This is what sustainable development is all about. You don’t eat today and not remember the generation coming that they too have to eat, that is all it is.”

On the developmental strides of Governor Obaseki in the last seven and half years, Obasanjo said, “The governor used this opportunity to brief me of what is going on in Edo State.”
