I wish to live beyond 100 – Obasanjo

Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has expressed his wish to live beyond 100 years so as to have more opportunities to celebrate with the Agura of Gbagura, Oba Sabur Bakare, Jamolu II.

He said this on Tuesday in Abeokuta, the Ogun state capital when he joined other dignitaries at the first year anniversary of the traditional ruler held in the state capital on Tuesday.

The traditional ruler received the staff of office from former Ogun State Governor, Ibikunle Amosun, on May 21, 2019, as the 9th Agura of Gbagura in Egbaland.

He commemorated his first year anniversary with interdenominational services with Muslims and Christians, as well as commissioned a borehole for the community.

In his remarks at the interdenominational service, Obasanjo who clocked 83 this year, said he wished to be at the 20 years anniversary of the monarch.

He also wishes God takes his life after fulfilling the dream.

“I will be here to celebrate your 20 years anniversary with you, whether I am invited or not,” the elder statesman told the traditional ruler.

He added, “By the time I also partake in celebrating your 20th anniversary with you, if God wishes, he can call me to come and meet him in heaven because I know by that time, I will be above 100 or more.”

The former president, however, advised the monarch to always ensure he propagates unity among traditional rulers in Yoruba land.

He said, “There are times that kabiyesi don’t listen to words and there are times he does listen to words.

“If we are united, there is nothing we can’t do in Yoruba land and Nigeria as a whole,” he said.
