2023 Presidency: Nigeria needs leaders with touch of madness – Obasanjo


Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has identified the kind of leader Nigeria needs.

Obasanjo said Nigeria needs a leader driven by passion and “a touch of madness” to move forward.

He made the remark while hosting a Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Presidential aspirant, Mohammed Hayatu-Deen, in Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital.

The former President said Nigeria would overcome its security challenges within two years if the leader was ready to make tough decisions.

According to Obasanjo: “I will say four things, of which I was reminded this morning. One is knowledge.

“And when you said, that you are involved in this, with a passion and I was telling some people this morning that, passion means madness, that you are mad about Nigeria, I am and I have no apologies for that because I have no other country I can call my own and I have no other country I can go to and say yes, I have come to live here.

“Passion means being mad about Nigeria, having a touch of madness, and I look at you (Hayatu-Deen); you are mad about Nigeria too.”
