Obasanjo: Nigeria Is Presently Dripping Bitterness, Sadness by iwaeda: 2:30pm On Jun 03
Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has described Nigeria as a country presently dripping in bitterness and sadness.

The former president argued that even though the country is destined to be a land flowing with milk and honey, bad leadership has made it unachievable.

He said this on Thursday while getting presented with a book titled, ‘The Man, The General and The President,’ authored by Femmy Carrena, at the Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library in Abeokuta, Ogun State capital.

Obasanjo said, “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.

“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 civilised 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?”

How did Nigeria get here? Simple.

The frustration in any an EQUAL MULTI-PARTNERSHIP is having to deal with a partner who ERRONEOUSLY believes
-- he is SUPERIOR to other partners
-- he is the ONLY fabric holding the partnership together
-- he is the ONLY one who determines the terms and conditions of the partnership
-- and that any issue he is NOT comfortable with is a "no go area", which should never make it to the discussion table.

At a point, with back against the wall, the other partners will become frustrated and in order to change the prevailing circumstances and narratives, they would become aggressively assertive and demand for an equitable partnership.

No b small.. even acrimony. But he should not forget how he tore his PDP card during Jonathan's regime and helped raise Buhari to power. So he should keep his opinions to himself.

Why is he lamenting? He is among Nigeria problems. thought he wanted to rule for life with his third term agenda....while in office, he was the all and on....no one's opinions matters to him on how Nigeria should be or governed, today he is blaming Buhari...mtchew!

If only you have given us a sound democractic footing, instead of this man know man democracy, Nigeria wouldn't have been here by now!

This old man should stop crying till he show us the trained snipers by GEJ.

We won't also forget that it was during his tenure that he permitted the core North to create Sharia and Hisbah terrorist while arresting their southern counterpart.

I'm happy to note that people still recollect the role obj played to foist buhari on Nigeria.
He went as far as cooking the snipers &1000 politicians on the watch list story against gej, just to bring him down for buhari to come in. I remember, one foolish ameachi somebody, even came out to say his name was number one on the imaginary list. And today obj is here pontificating gibberish. The blood of thousands of Innocent citizens killed over the past 6yrs plus shall be on obj's head.

Obj should just mind his business or keep quiet, he is part of the problems of our darling nation. He and his goons stole and milked the country dry for 16 years. How about the electricity scandal? Petroleum scandal? Etc. He who comes into Equity must come with clean hands.
We know the country is really going through alot thanks to the menace Nnamdi Kanu brought upon us but Nigeria will overcome. We shall remain indivisible, forever brimming with glory as one.
God bless Nigeria.
