Former President Olusegun Obasanjo said yesterday, that though Nigeria at 56, as a nation, is not where it ought to be, he was optimistic that there is still hope that the country would surmount its challenges.

He said: “Our development is impaired, and this is not what it ought to be, but we must get it right.”

As one of the major ways to move the country forward, Obasanjo stated, “We must all accept responsibility, and stop passing the buck.”

He spoke at a lecture organised by members of the Youth Fellowship of the Owu Baptist Church, as part of the church’s activities to mark the Independence anniversary.

The former President, who spoke on “Nigeria Development for Nigerians by Nigerians,” insisted that the country’s development must not be by Nigerians alone, but should also include foreign investors and all friends of Nigeria, adding that all those interested in assisting the country in its developmental efforts must also be encouraged to help.
