I’m not afraid of death, says Olusegun Obasanjo

Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has  said  he won’t  act like  a coward for fear of death. According to him,   he  will continue to  raise the  alarm when things are not right in the country.

Obasanjo said these at the two-day interactive session of  the Presidential Youth Mentorship Retreat held at the Youth Development Centre, Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library, Abeokuta.

The  former army officer, who spoke at the  event  on  Monday and Tuesday, said his major concern was to build leaders who would  lead Africa to  the  Promised  Land.

He said God had  favoured him to live long after serving as   Head of State and  President of the country.

Obasanjo said  the purpose of the retreat was to facilitate the release of the  creative energies of young people.

He said African  youths needed to interact with their leaders.

The ex-military ruler  however  advised the youths to  made individual and collective sacrifices  to make  Africa  a great  continent.

Obasanjo said, “I ‘m not afraid of death at my age. God has favoured me and I appreciate God’s blessings on me over these years.

“My concern over the years is to build leaders of Africa. My greatest concern is tomorrow and that tomorrow begins today.”
