Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has shared his thoughts on the present situation in the country.
Obasanjo, while speaking at the official launch of The Letterman by the Editor-in-Chief of Premium Times, Musikilu Mojeed, in Abuja opined that God must be a Nigerian.
He explained that God allows Nigeria to get away with “stupid things.”
The former president argued that Nigeria should blame itself for failing to harness God’s given natural resources.
He, however, expressed hope that God will not run out of patience with Nigeria so the citizenry can continue to enjoy God’s mercy.
Obasanjo said: “I believe that God is a Nigerian. Bishop Kukah may not agree with me. Because God loves us so much that we have done so many stupid things and he allowed us to get away with these stupid things.
“I sincerely hope that God’s patience has no limit of elasticity because if he does, there will soon be a day that God will say: ‘No, I have heard enough.’
“I believe the right lessons must be learnt. We have all that we need to have. God has given us all that we need to have; that we are not doing what we should do, it is not God; we should blame ourselves.”
