Olusegun Obasanjo
Former Nigerian President, Olusegun Obasanjo has said that the nation he once ruled is in the state of bitterness and unlike the popular phrase of a land flowing with milk and honey, he said Nigeria is rather flowing with sadness.
This is coming in the heels of the insecurity, featuring killings, abduction and disappearance of citizens, combatting the nation, the economic instability as well as the calls for secession from two of the three major tribes in the nation.Right Now, Nigeria Is A Land Flowing With Sadness - Obasanjo
