NIGERIA HAS DISAPPOINTED THE WORLD – OBASANJO

Former President Olusegun Obasanjo says since Nigeria got its independence 63 years ago, the country has not lived up to expectations.

He spoke in Abuja during the public presentation of a book written by a former Minister of Trades, Investment and Industry, Olusegun Aganga.

He said at independence, Nigeria was viewed as a shining light to the black race. Obasanjo said to chart a new course for the country, the leaders needed to admit their failure.He identified two major issues which are inter-related on the factors for all-round development, saying that they are peace and security which we cannot achieve without justice, equity and inclusive society.

    Gen Obasanjo is right, if Nigeria cannot achieve peace and security, which are only possible when justice, equity, and inclusiveness are the building blocks of the society, the country, then this ship of State shall remain agrounded, unfortunately for the black race. But then, No, the black race doesn’t deserve that punishment. Therefore, the black race must rid themselves of the obstacle called Nigeria. 63 more years or even more shall not happen to us again, I mean to the next generations that are innocent of the sins of those holding us down. Something’s got to give!
