The former President Olusegun Obasanjo yesterday asked Nigerian youths what would their generation do to make Nigeria a better place. He  spoke at the one day symposium organized the Kaduna Chamber of Commerce and Industry Mines and Agriculture (KADCCIMA). Read his statement….

“My own generation fought for the unity of Nigeria. You cannot deny that. There are many things we must have done wrong but we fought for the unity of this country.  I still have sharp nails from grenades that entered my body that our brothers shot at me during the civil war. But, at the end of it we reconciled. In addition, my generation laid the foundation of democracy in the country. Our democracy is not perfect, our democracy is a journey and not a destination, and we must continue to improve on it. My sons and daughters, what will your generation do? Condemnation is easy but what will you do? There are some people who have taken the bull the horn and tried their best. But, all in all still intact. There are many countries that fought civil wars and they are not together. Yugoslavia, Pakistan, Sudan, we fought a civil war sadly, but we are still together. I think for God and thank those who made that possible.”
