Former President of Nigeria, Olusegun Obasanjo, had said on Tuesday, November 19, that he is not afraid of death and not even the fear of death could stop him from raising his voice whenever there is a need to do so as an elder statesman in Nigeria and Africa as a whole.
Obasanjo added that God has favoured him to live long after serving as military head of state and as democratically-elected president of the country.
Obasanjo said: “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 believe that youths need interaction from leaders and learn from them. I want you to identify yourself and use your identity to achieve service to God and humanity” he told the youths.
