Former President Olusegun Obasanjo says his faith in Nigeria remained unshakable despite the myriads of challenges confronting the country.
He said this at the opening of “Abeokuta Window on America,” held at the Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library (OOPL) Abeokuta, Ogun State.
The former Nigerian leader said the country would not be destroyed by the myriads of challenges.
Represented by the Deputy Coordinator of OOPL, Ayodele Aderinwale, Obasanjo said: “Whatever may be the problem or challenges currently confronting Nigeria, I assure you that they are not problems on the attack, they are actually problems on the retreat.”
“I see hope in the willingness of Nigerian young, who are resisting with all their might the evil that are being perpetrated.
“I see hope in the unwavering conduct and uncompromising drive of Nigerians in demanding a democratic process. I see hope, in the ingenuity and infinite creativity of Nigerians. I see hope in the youth and young, for our tomorrow lies in them.”
The “Abeokuta Window on America” is a type of American Space located in over 150 countries worldwide to engage Nigerian youths in learning about American culture and politics.
