Former President Olusegun Obasanjo says the unity, progress and the development of Nigeria remain his foremost responsibility.
The former President, who said this in Owerri, the Imo State Capital, during the “Imo day of thanksgiving” on Monday, added that he was passionate about the unity and growth of the country.
Obasanjo said, “As a former President, I have what I call residual responsibility for this country. I will continue to work for the unity and progress of Nigeria.”
The ex-President, who charged Nigerians to work for the unity of the country, irrespective of ethnicity or religion, averred that it was biblical to give thanks to God.
He said, “As a former president of Nigeria, where am I in the progress of Nigeria? As a citizen of Imo State, where are you in the progress of Imo State and Nigeria? As a Christian, where are you in the development of the society?”
