Don’t allow politicians to wreck Nigeria – Obasanjo

Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has cautioned religious leaders not to allow politicians to wreck Nigeria.

Chief Obasanjo gave the charge when he received the new President of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Most Reverend Daniel Okoh at his Presidential Library Penthouse residence in Abeokuta, Ogun State capital. 

The former President noted that Nigeria politicians could be made more responsible by the country’s religious leaders.

He hinted that he was impressed with the new CAN president noting that collaboration between him and Sultan of Sokoto could yield good results for the nation.

The new CAN president had earlier commended the former President for his roles in turning around the Christian faith in the country, noting that Chief Obasanjo has made valid contributions to Christianity in Nigeria including the establishment of CAN in 1976 and the inter-religions Council in 1999. 

Most Reverend Daniel Okoh said the Inter religions Council had also resolved “not to leave the political space to the politicians stating that the religious leaders must also be involved in the political space.
