June 27, 2015 -“Nigerians Don’t See Good In Others” – Obasanjo Laments
Ex-President Chief Olusegun Obasanjo has enjoined Nigerians to always celebrate the successes and achievements of their countrymen and women, without waiting on outsiders to discover and celebrate them.
He lamented the fact that Nigerians sometimes demonstrate a carefree attitude by not seeing anything good in themselves, until outsiders discover such and take the glory away.
Obasanjo stated this while speaking at a send forth lunch organised by his family in honour of His Lordship, Most Reverend Josiah Idowu-Fearon, who has been appointed as the Secretary General of the World Anglican Communion.
The event was held at the Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library (OOPL) with dignitaries from all walks of life from across the country present, including the state deputy governor of Ogun, Princess Yetunde Onanuga.
“One of the things we don’t often do well in Nigeria is that we don’t often see good in ourselves; and one of the things that God does fairly well for us is that He makes others to see the good in us.
“I believe that is what has happened in the life of the man whom we are celebrating and honouring today. I believe that Bishop Idowu-Fearon, who is going as the Secretary General for the Global Anglican Communion falls into this category,” he said.
