True or False :Only leaders with a touch of madness can fix Nigeria – Obasanjo

Nigerian former President said the next set of leaders in the country must combine passion with a touch of madness.

Obasanjo said this when he received a presidential aspirant of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), mohammed, to his residence in Abeokuta, Ogun state on Thursday, May 19, 2022.

Daily Trust reported :The former president said he is passionately mad about Nigeria and owes no one an apology for that,

He decried the current situation in the country saying it’s agonising for him and other well-meaning Nigerians who also look forward to a better Nigeria.

Obasanjo, however, expresses belief that with the right leader who’s willing to take tough decisions, Nigeria can overcome the security challenges confronting it in two years.

He enjoined all Nigerians to be ready to make sacrifices in order to redirect the country to the right path.

The former President said, “Some people say the human memories are short, maybe they are right because if human memories are not short, some of the mistakes that we are making, we will not be making them.

“Yes, we have a record which some people may find a little bit not what they want to hear, but whatever people want to hear, I believe like you (Hayatu-Deen) have rightly said, that this period is not like any other period in the history of Nigeria and you used two words, decomposing and dissolving. I can’t find any better words to describe the situation we have found ourselves.

“It is an agonising situation for you obviously and also for me. I want to emphasise the point that the Nigerian situation, bad as it is, will only be put right by Nigerians at the forefront of our situation. So, Nigerians have to brace themselves up to do what needs to be done to put Nigeria back on the right path.

“And you are right in saying that wherever you go now, one of the things you hear is that Nigeria is not on the table, but why shouldn’t Nigeria be on the table? What does it cost Nigeria to be on the table?

“I will say four things, of which I was reminded this morning. One is knowledge. If Nigeria is not at the table, maybe the knowledge that we should have of ourselves, of our situation, of our continent and indeed of the world is not that adequate, if that knowledge is adequate, we will do what is right, when it is right and how it is right.

“The second is vision, what is the vision that we have? And if you have no vision, you may have eyes, but you are blind. And I believe that is part of our situation.

“The third is passion. And when you said, that you are involved in this, with a passion and I was telling some people this morning that, passion means madness, that you are mad about Nigeria, I am and I have no apologies for that because I have no other country I can call my own and I have no other country I can go to and say yes, I have come to live here.

“Passion means being mad about Nigeria, having a touch of madness and I look at you (Hayatu-Deen) and say yes, you are mad about Nigeria too.”

Meanwhile, Hayatu-Deen had earlier stated in his remark that Nigeria was “decomposing and dissolving very fast.”

The former Managing Director of FSB International Bank will jostle for the PDP ticket with the likes of former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, former governor of Anambra state, Peter Obi, former Senate Presidents Bukola Saraki and Anyim Pius Anyim, Rivers state Governor, Nyesom Wike among others.
