- Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has recounted his life experience on earth
- Obasanjo said he only achieved a lot in his lifetime because of the mercies God showed
- The former president said that God has done many unimaginable things for him
Nigeria's former president, Olusegun Obasanjo has said that he only got to the level he is in life because of God's mercies.
Obasanjo while speaking at a thanksgiving service of the Christian Association of Nigeria on Thursday, January 2, said as a Christian, he will only work towards doing the right things in life.
He said he would continue doing things that will make God continue to show him mercy.
The Cable reports that the former president said that God has done many unimaginable things for him.
“God has done a lot for me. I want to do things that will make God show His Mercy on me… I can’t lie to God."
“Those of you who know where I was born, how many of you know Ibogun-Olaogun? The village where I was born is so small that no matter how large you make the map of Nigeria, Ibogun-Olaogun will never appear," Obasanjo said.
Stating that the kind of opportunity he got could not have been possible if not for God's presence in his life, Obasanjo said, he cannot thank God enough.
He said: “And yet, somebody born in that village of pure illiterate parents will have the opportunity that I have now, to reach the stage that I have reached, to be used to achieve whatever I have been used to achieve, I cannot thank God enough."
“I always say this, whatever I have achieved, whatever I have done, I thank God because it is not me alone, there are those who have worked with me, some of them are dead, some of them are still alive and without them, I will not have been able to achieve much. On an occasion like this, let us just thank God and keep thanking God," Obasanjo said.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that Obasanjo had warned of the continued rise of Nigeria's debt profile.
The former president said Nigeria’s external debt profile suddenly grew from $10.32 billion to N24.947 trillion or $81.274 billion between 2015 and March 2019.
He also warned that the Federal Government must seek an urgent solution to the challenge of the rising external debt profile.
