The former President of Nigeria, Olusegun Obasanjo has now broken his silence to talk about the recent security issues faced by the country, revealing that despite the recent travails of the country, he is still quite optimistic about the nation. The vibrant strongman of the Southwest made his position known during the 108th Nigeria Baptist Convention held in Oyo State on Wednesday.
According to Obasanjo, he has continued to remain a strong and incurable optimist about the possibility of a better Nigeria, in the face of security travails that continue to worsen. He ended by stating in Yoruba that indeed, no matter what the country is currently going through, there would always be some form of light at the tunnel’s end.
In his own reaction, Governor Seyi Makinde expressed worry and concern over the current insecurity levels in Nigeria. However, he reiterated his Government’s resolve to ensure that the people of Oyo State together with their properties and sources of livelihood would be adequately protected.
Makinde also charged religious leaders with the duty of praying for leaders including himself, as the government cannot afford to handle these matters alone.
