2023 may break Nigeria – Obasanjo tells religious leaders

The Former President, Olusegun Obasanjo has revealed that the 2023 elections might make or break Nigeria.

Obasanjo also informed various religious leaders in Nigeria not to allow political actors destroy the country.

The former general said the country would regret it if the people allow such.

Obasanjo made this revelation when Most Reverend Daniel Okoh, the new President of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), paid him a visit at his Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library (OOPL) Penthouse residence, Abeokuta, the capital of Ogun State.

Kehinde Akinyemi, Media Aide to the former Nigerian leader, via a statement on Wednesday, said that Obasanjo pleaded that religious leaders should make political actors more responsible.

“If you stand on the truth, you stand for justice and equity, it is then the politicians will not be able to mess us around,” Obasanjo said, adding that “if we do not watch it, the politicians will wreck this country and we’ll all regret it.”

“Now, if we take the righteous away from politics, and we leave politics to the unrighteous, the unrighteous will smear the righteous with the unrighteousness that they will carry into politics,” he said.

“And in the next election, if we do not watch it, it may make or break Nigeria. And I pray that it will make Nigeria,” Obasanjo was quoted as saying.
