2023 Elections: Wrong Choice Will Consume Nigeria, Says Obasanjo
Written by City Radio on August 11, 2022
Ahead of the 2023 general elections, former President Olusegun Obasanjo has urged Nigerians to make the right choice by electing credible leaders at all levels, warning that making the wrong choice in the election may consume the nation.
The ex-President made the call while delivering a lecture on Wednesday in Lagos at the Wilson Badejo Foundation’s 15th annual lecture with the theme, ‘Overcoming the twin challenge of poverty and insecurity in Nigeria’.
Obasanjo said the country cannot afford to make the mistake of choosing bad people at the helm of affairs considering the myriads of challenges.
He bemoaned the current state of the nation, calling for more prayers as Africa’s most populous nation goes to the poll in February next year.
He had earlier said that Nigeria has not taken its rightful position because of poverty and insecurity.
He wondered why the National Assembly cannot amend the country’s laws to make room for Nigerians abroad to vote during elections.
