Nigeria is complex, not difficult to govern– Obasanjo 

By Michael Ofulue, Osogbo

Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has described Nigeria as a complex country but not difficult to govern.

Obasanjo disclosed this on Sunday, at the commissioning of VIP lodge at the Government House in Osogbo.

According to him, many people used to say something about Nigeria and you can say that about any state. With my experience, Nigeria is a complex country but Nigeria is not a difficult country to rule.

Obasanjo charged Governor Ademola Adeleke not to joke with infrastructural development in the state.

He said people may say Osun State is a complex state but Osun State is not a difficult state to rule. You have to be honest with your conscience, with the people and with your God.

“In projects to handle, there is no end to it but you have to prioritize within priorities, I am happy that you are taking them one after the other. But let them know that you tried your best because there are records that eyes would see and mouth will say. 

“You have to be a man of character and attribute that everybody will see that Ademola Adeleke, when he sees opportunity to dance, he would dance but is a man of integrity, honest and hard work, it is very important. When light comes, darkness vanishes.

“Some people once despise you that you are a dancer but I said only happy people dance, you are my dancing partner. 

“What I have heard and saw since three days ago I have been here, If there is doubt in anybody that you are working, call the person to come and see.

“I am happy that he called them for deliberation. Senator Olu Alabi is here, Alhaji Fatai Akinbade, former Governor Olagunsoye Oyinlola. Bringing everyone on board is the best. I have talked to two out of three of them, it is a good move which is not only good for the party but for the state and the country. 

“You said government is continuum in your word and that all the abandoned projects you are working on, God will make it good for you. 

“Anywhere we meet, we would dance and rejoice, if anybody wants to abuse us they should go ahead,” he said.
