The former president Olusegun Obasanjo, has appealed to Nigerians to make the right choice during the forthcoming 2023 general elections, adding that, making the wrong choice in the election will consume the entire nation.

Obasanjo made the call when he spoke at the Wilson Badejo Foundation’s 15th annual lecture with the theme, ‘Overcoming the twin challenge of poverty and insecurity in Nigeria’ held in Lagos on Wednesday.

He said, “It is either we make the right choice in 2023 because if we make the right choice, we would get there.

“However, if we do not make the right choice in 2023, things would consume us and we pray against that one. We must make the right choice in 2023.

He had earlier said that Nigeria has not taken its rightful position because of poverty and insecurity.

Speaking further Obasanjo said: “Nigeria is not where it is supposed to be today. If anyone says it is ok where we are at the moment, then the person’s head needs to be examined.

“My friend, late Ahmed Joda, used to tell me that God has given us everything a nation needs and there’s no need for prayers because if God has given you everything and you squandered it, then something is wrong.

“I told him that even at that, we still need prayers as a nation because what is good needs prayers and on the other side too, we still need more prayers,” he said.
