I’m not afraid of death – Obasanjo says
Former President Olusegun Obasanjo who spoke at a two-day interactive session of the Presidential Youth Mentorship Retreat held at the Youth Development Centre in Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library, Abeokuta stated that he would continue to raise the alarm when things are not done properly in the country.
The elder statesmen said the fear of death won’t deter him from speaking up against anomalies witnessed across the country.
Obasanjo averred that he shouldn’t be afraid of death at his age as he urged the visiting youths to sacrifice themselves individually and collectively to make Nigeria a great nation.
“I’m not afraid of death at my age, God has favoured me and I appreciate God’s blessings on me over these years.
”My concern over the years is to build leaders of Africa. My greatest concern is tomorrow and that tomorrow begins today.
“The world today is in crisis; I believed that youths need interaction from leaders and learning from them. I want to be inspired at the end of this programme.
“I want you to identify yourself and use your identity to achieve service to God and humanity,” he said.
