Former President Olusegun Obasanjo, has on Wednesday, stated that despite the insecurity currently faced in most parts of the country, under President Muhammadu Buhari’s watch, there will be light in the end, .
Obasanjo was joined by the Governor of Ogun State, Dapo Abiodun, and his Oyo State counterpart, Governor Seyi Makinde, at the 108th Nigeria Baptist Convention, which held at the Baptist International Conference Centre, Lufuwape Town, along the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway.
The event which was equally used to conduct a Valedictory and Commendation Service for the retiring President of Baptist Convention, Nigeria, and the President, Christians Association of Nigeria, CAN, Dr. (Reverend) Samson Ayokunle, was attended by other Dignitaries, including Senator Ishaku Abbo (Adamawa North), among others.
In his address, the former President stated that he remains an “incurable optimist” about a better Nigeria, despite the escalating security challenges in the country.
His words: “When I was coming here, I did not intend to make a speech. And you will see that unlike my two brothers (referring to Governors Abiodun and Makinde), I do not have anything to read.
“If you have brothers like this, do you have anything to fear? So, I told them to make a speech, and I have come to concur. So, I concur.
“But having concurred, if I do not say more than that, you will leave here and say ‘Obasanjo is I concur’.
“Is that good enough? My two brothers talked about the situation we are in (insecurity). You know, I am an incurable optimist about a number of things, but particularly about Nigeria.
“Epon Agbo wa n fi ni, koni ja (the situation may be threatening, we will not be consumed.) There will be light at the end of the tunnel.”
