Olusegun Obasanjo, former President of Nigeria has said that anyone who is happy with the country’s present condition should be medically examined.
The former president disclosed this when he appeared as the special guest of honour at the Wilson Badejo Foundation’s 15th annual lecture.
The lecture was theme, ‘Overcoming the twin challenges of poverty and insecurity in Nigeria’ held in Lagos’.
Obasanjo blamed poverty and insecurity for the country’s underdevelopment.
He said, “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, 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, however, expressed the hope that if the right choice was made in 2023, the nation may witness progress.
He added: “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.”
