Former President Olusegun Obasanjo on Thursday declared that God is a Nigerian.
Obasanjo explained that God allowed Nigeria to get away with “stupid things.”
He spoke at the official launch of The Letterman by the Editor-in-Chief of Premium Times, Musikilu Mojeed, in Abuja.
The former president stressed that Nigeria should blame itself for failing to harness God’s given natural resources.
He, however, expressed hope that God will not run out of patience with Nigeria.
Obasanjo said: “I believe that God is a Nigerian. Bishop Kukah may not agree with me. Because God loves us so much that we have done so many stupid things and he allowed us to get away with these stupid things.
“I sincerely hope that God’s patience has no limit of elasticity because if he does, there will soon be a day that God will say: ‘No, I have heard enough.’
“I believe the right lessons must be learnt. We have all that we need to have. God has given us all that we need to have; that we are not doing what we should do, it is not God; we should blame ourselves.”
