He contended that it was wrong for anyone to write Nigeria off, lamenting poor management of the nation’s resources by its leaders
He added that many nations of the world are not as blessed as Nigeria.
“God has been so generous to us, many nations are not as richly blessed like we are,” he stated.
Obasanjo added that,
“The first thing God did that surprised us most was that He dropped two big rivers down to confluence Nigeria. He then later use gold, bauxite and so many lime-stone in abundance to beautify everywhere in the country. He then later dropped oil under our soil near the water and later in the water.
“I believe there are good people who will be able to manage it, maybe later. But the earlier we are there, the better and I am sure we will be there. We will be there because God has been kind to us; we only need to be kind to ourselves. God will help us.”OBJ concluded that the problem of Nigeria is leadership
