Former President Olusegun Obasanjo says he is not afraid of death and that nothing could stop him from speaking when it mattered.
The former president disclosed this on Tuesday at an interactive session of the Presidential Youth Mentorship Retreat, held at the Youth Development Centre, Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library, Abeokuta, Ogun State.
Obasanjo said God has favoured him to live long after serving as military head of state and as democratically-elected president of the country.
“I’m not afraid of death at my age, God has favoured me and I appreciate God’s blessings on me over these years,” he said.
Obasanjo advised the youths to sacrifice themselves in making Africa great.
“My concern over the years is to build leaders of Africa. My greatest concern is tomorrow and that tomorrow begins today
The world today is in crisis; I believed that youths need interaction from leaders and learning from them. I want to be inspired at the end of this programme.
“I want you to identify yourself and use your identity to achieve service to God and humanity,” he said.
