"God Not To Be Blamed For Our Sufferings In Nigeria" - OBJ

Former Nigeria President, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo has told Nigerian leaders that God is not the cause of our sufferings. 

Chief Obasanjo made this known while speaking at his Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library, Abeokuta, Ogun State, on his 2021 message to Nigerians.

He said we shouldn't have to depend on prayers alone and neglect the work that's supposed to be done by both leaders and followers. 

According to him, “I like the motto of a school which says ‘work and pray.’ Some people say it should be ‘pray and work’, but it doesn’t matter to me in what order I put it, but prayer must go with work and work must go with prayer.

“And I believe we need to work hard in this country as we pray hard so that the coming year, the year 2021 will be a glorious year for us. But it will not happen unless we work to make it happen.

"We do not have to blame God for our situation, we have to blame ourselves. Nigeria does not have to be poor, no Nigerian must go to bed hungry. That we have a situation like that is a choice by our leaders and followers alike. My prayer is that God will make year 2021 a better year for all of us, but it will not happen without work.”

"When we do the right thing. We are not doing the right thing now. When we do the right thing, the economy will be what it should be.

"We have gone from one form of insecurity to bad economy and on the top of it is the COVID-19. Some people, either for insecurity or for bad economy or for COVID-19 have gone to the great beyond, I will say may the would of those who have departed, particularly in this year of challenges, may their souls rest in perfect peace", he concluded.
