Nigeria’s situation can be changed, says Obasanjo

Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki, Welcomes Former President Olusegun Obasanjo, Emphasizing Sacrifice and Unity

Former President Olusegun Obasanjo paid a courtesy visit to the Government House in Benin City, the Edo State capital, where he was warmly received by Governor Godwin Obaseki on Saturday.

During the visit, Obasanjo emphasized the importance of sacrifice and selflessness among political leaders, urging Nigerians to remain hopeful despite the challenges facing the country.

Commending Governor Obaseki for the warm reception, Obasanjo encouraged leaders to prioritize the collective good over personal interests. He stated, “The situation in Nigeria is challenging, but every difficult situation can be overcome.

The key question is how and when? Those in positions of power now have a unique opportunity to govern the country and serve the people. It’s not about ‘me’ but ‘we’; not about ‘mine’ but ‘ours’; not about ‘my tomorrow’ but ‘our tomorrow,’ encompassing all generations, present and future. This is the essence of sustainable development—to ensure that we leave a better world for generations to come.”

Reflecting on Governor Obaseki’s achievements over the past seven and a half years, Obasanjo appreciated the governor for his developmental strides and commitment to the progress of Edo State. He remarked, “The governor took the opportunity to update me on the progress and projects underway in Edo State.”
