Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has warned about the outcome of 2023 general elections in the country.
Speaking on Wednesday September 23, when President of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Reverend Daniel T. Okoh, paid him a courtesy visit at his Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library (OOPL) Penthouse residence in Abeokuta, Ogun State capital, the former President said 2023 election may make or mar Nigeria.
Obasanjo in the statement released by his Special Assistant on Media, Kehinde Akinyemi, said if clerics allow the political class to wreck Nigeria, “everyone would regret it”.
The statement read;
Quote
“If you stand on the truth, you stand for justice and equity, then the politicians will not be able to mess us around and I will say it with all sense of responsibility now, if we do not watch it, the politicians will wreck this country and we all regret it.

“And where can we look for salvation, that is where you religious leaders have a significant role to play. I think it’s the mistake of the past (particularly in Christendom), that we say politics is not for the righteous. Now, if we take the righteous away from politics, and we leave politics to the unrighteous, the unrighteous will smear the righteous with the unrighteousness that they will carry into politics and will have nowhere to go.
“And in the next election, if we do not watch it, it may make or break Nigeria. And I pray that it will make Nigeria.”
Obasanjo also applauded the CAN President over his relationship with the Sultan of Sokoto, Saad Abubakar in promoting peace in the country.

Nobody knows the whereabouts of your  JAGABAD . Has he gone to  change his  battery  ahead of the  campaign? Tell him to  quit  because he can't  stand the heat. Tsunami of OBIDIENT  movement  will sweep him away. The  youths are on the March. Emboldened by the  spirit of  their  colleagues  Tinubu  murdered at Lekki toll gate  during the  ENDSARS  protests.
