As Nigerians continue to languish under the yoke of bandits, kidnappers, terrorists, and criminal elements of all sorts, three prominent Nigerians have spoken against the terrible situation of the country.
These eminent Nigerians are former president Olusegun Obasanjo, Senate President Ahmad Lawan and Gombe state governor, Inuwa Yahaya, The Nation reports.
Legit.ng highlights some of their opinions.
- God is not the cause of Nigeria's problems, it is the leaders.
- The economy is worsening because Nigeria is not doing the right thing now.
- Nigerians do not have to be poor and no citizen ought to go to bed hungry.
- The pandemic and the insecurity situations in the land is pathetic.
- Nigerians should pray for their leaders to lead the country right because it is only prayers that can redeem them.
- Nigeria may not know peace in the future if the security situation in the country is not addressed.
- The young people that are around are not well guided.
Recall that Legit.ng had reported that Olusegun Obasanjo, two-term former Nigerian president and head of state, on Tuesday, December 29, pulled the trigger again as he did a thorough assessment of the economy, security, and agricultural engagement under the watch of President Muhammadu Buhari.
The former president, in his New Year message to Nigerians, maintained that it is high time leaders worked hard to diversify the economy and improve the worsening security crisis across the country.
Obasanjo, who spoke in a statement from his Obasanjo Presidential Library, Abeokuta, Ogun state, called on the government to centrally engage the agricultural sector in order to provide jobs and make “a glorious 2021.”
Legit.ng also reported that Obasanjo addressed the claim by Senator Anthony Adefuye that his ancestry is not Yoruba but Igbo, with the former president maintaining that his "two parents were from Owu in Abeokuta."
In his book titled ‘My Watch Volume 2: Political and Public Affairs', the former president had traced his ancestry to the Yorubas, maintaining his parents are from Abeokuta, Ogun state.
The former president who ruled between 1999 and 2007 said as a Yoruba man, he has the tribal marks of Owu, settling the specks of dust on his race.
