Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has said that anyone who says Nigeria is fine needs to be examined, noting that the country is not supposed to be where it is at the moment.

The former president said this on Wednesday at the Wilson Badejo Foundation 15th Annual Lecture in Lagos.

“Nigeria is not where it is supposed to be today. If anyone says it is okay where we are at the moment, then the person’s head needs to be examined,” Obasanjo said.

He urged Nigerians to make the right choice in the forthcoming elections to get things right.

He added, “It is either we make the right choice in 2023 because if we make the right choice, we would get there.

“However, if we do not make the right choice in 2023, things would consume us and we pray against that one. We must make the right choice in 2023.

“My friend, late Ahmed Joda, used to tell me that God has given us everything a nation needs and there’s no need for prayers because if God has given you everything and you squandered it, then something is wrong.

“I told him that even at that, we still need prayers as a nation because what is good needs prayers and on the other side too, we still need more prayers.”
