Former Nigerian president, Olusegun Obasanjo, on Wednesday said the 2023 election will either bring success or ruin Nigeria.

POLITICS NIGERIA reports that Obasanjo spoke when the President of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Reverend Daniel Okoh, paid him a courtesy visit at his residence in Abeokuta, Ogun State capital.

“If you stand on the truth, you stand for justice and equity, then the politicians will not be able to mess us around and I will say it with all sense of responsibility now, if we do not watch it, the politicians will wreck this country and we all regret it,” Obasanjo said.

“And where can we look for salvation, that is where you religious leaders have a significant role to play.

“ I think it’s the mistake of the past (particularly in Christendom), that we say politics is not for the righteous.

“Now, if we take the righteous away from politics, and we leave politics to the unrighteous, the unrighteous will smear the righteous with the unrighteousness that they will carry into politics and will have nowhere to go.

“And in the next election, if we do not watch it, it may make or break Nigeria. And I pray that it will make Nigeria,” Obasanjo was quoted to have said.
