Former Nigerian leader Olusegun Obasanjo has harped on the need for citizens to make the right choice in the 2023 general elections as doing otherwise would amount to lead to things consuming everyone.
While speaking as a guest of honour at the Wilson Badejo Foundation’s 15th annual lecture on Wednesday, he stated that if Nigerians make the right choice in next year's election, they will get to their destination.
“It is either we make the right choice in 2023 because if we make the right choice, we will get there.
“However, if we don’t make the right choice in 2023, things will consume us, and we pray against that one. We must make the right choice in 2023.
“Nigeria isn’t where it is supposed to be today. If anyone says it’s ok where we’re 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 is 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", Obasanjo stated.
