Obasanjo says Nigeria is more divided and in disunity than civil war period


Obasanjo made this known on Thursday while speaking at a one-day 2019 annual retreat/conference and general meeting of members of Association of Chief Audit Executives of Banks in Nigeria held in Abeokuta.

He said:

“When we look at this country today, even during the civil war, we were not as divided as we are today.

“Today, we are in danger if we don’t take partnership seriously. Partnership within our people and partnership within Africa and the rest of the world.”

While addressing members of ACAEBIN, Obasanjo said private sector is the life blood of development in every economy of a country.

He said:

“As chief audit executives, it is defined by virtue of what you are doing as a profession. If the audit is awry, banking business will not be right.

“What I want to emphasise is that, it is a must as Nigerians and as Africans, that we have certain elements that we have to take very seriously which I put as five Ps.

“The first is politics which is governance. Unless we get governance right, any other thing we are trying to do will not be right.
