Nigeria’s Federal Government has asked former President Olusegun Obasanjo to tender a public apology over his comments imputing ethno-religious motive to Boko Haram and ISWAP, described as deeply offensive and patently divisive.

Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has said Nigeria is currently a land flowing with bitterness and sadness.

Obasanjo said this on Thursday while receiving a book titled, ‘The Man, The General and The President,’ authored by Femmy Carrena, at the Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library in Abeokuta, Ogun State capital.

He said that even though the country is destined to be a land flowing with milk and honey, bad leadership has made it unachievable.

Obasanjo said, “My prayer is that all of us will have something to contribute to making this country what God has created it to be – a land flowing with milk and honey.

“Right now, it is a land flowing with bitterness and sadness, that is not what God wants this country to be.

“We must change the narrative, we must talk to ourselves in the civilised language.

“There is nowhere you go in this country that you will not see geniuses in any section of the country. So, why should we look down on ourselves?”
