Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has disclosed that he is not afraid of death because he would not stop raising the alarm about things that are not right in Nigeria.
Obasanjo made this known at the two- day interactive session of the Presidential Youth Mentorship Retreat held at the Youth Development Centre, Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library, Abeokuta.
The former president said God has favoured him to live long after serving as military head of state and as democratically-elected president of the country.
He stated that the purpose of the Presidential Mentorship Retreat was to facilitate the release of creative energies of young people.
Obasanjo said: ” I ‘m not afraid of death at my age, God has favoured me and I appreciate God’s blessings on me over these years. 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. I want you all to come out individually and collectively in making Nigeria and Africa at large a great nation .”
