God should not be blamed for Nigeria’s situation

Former President Chief Olusegun Obasanjo has said Nigerian leaders, not God, should be blamed for the situation of things in the country.

Obasanjo said this while addressing newsmen in Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital, on Tuesday.

According to the elder statesman, no Nigerian should go to sleep hungry considering the enormous resources the nation is blessed with.

While praying that the year 2021 be better than 2020, the Balogun Owu asserted that Nigeria was not supposed to be poor.

“We do not have to blame God for our situation, we have to blame ourselves. Nigeria does not have to be poor.

”No Nigerian must go to bed hungry. That we have a situation like that is a choice by our leaders and followers alike, my prayer is that God will make the year 2021 a better year for all of us. But it will not happen without work,” he stated.

Obasanjo also urged people to be thankful to God in all things, 2020 was a year of challenge.

Speaking on fixing the economy, Obasanjo said, “we are not doing the right thing now, when we do the right thing, the economy will be what it should be.”
