Feb 18, 2018 – Photos: Obasanjo Reconciles With Jonathan, Attends Church Service With Him Today In Otuoke Bayelsa State
It seems ex President Olusegun Aremu Obasanjo has forgiven the former sins of Goodluck Ebele Jonathan.
The politicians who reconciled in GEJ’s country home in Otuoke Bayelsa state this weekend have taken their friendship to a whole new level as Obasanjo followed Jonathan to church this morning.
Here is what the Abeokuta based politician said during a church service in Otuoke today:
“What touched me most in this short gathering is the children coming forward and singing the welcome song and dressing in the attire of different cultures, different tribes and different linguistic groups in Nigeria.
“And for me, that underpins the homily you (Rev. Oruwari) gave to us — reconciliation. “Unless we preach, we teach, and practise reconciliation, we will not have peace.
“And unless we have peace, we will not have development; and unless we have development, we will not have growth; and if we do not have growth, we will not come out of poverty.
“Even if some of us are exceptionally lucky and they are able to get out, the majority of us will be ridden in poverty and that is not what God has ordained for this country.
“What God has ordained for this country is for this country to be a land flowing with milk and honey; a land of plenty and a land of prosperity”.
Shortly after Obasanjo finished delivering his mini speech, former President Jonathan expressed his appreciation with these words:
“It is a unique opportunity. Ex-president Olusegun Obasanjo promised that he was going to visit my village when I visited his hometown after leaving office. But I did not know it was going to come at this time.
“But we have to thank Governor Seriake Dickson because Obasanjo was to come here only once. The Governor insisted that immediately he comes in, Obasanjo would come and see us, and that before he leaves, he will also worship with us”.
