    Nigeria’s former President, Olusegun Obasanjo , has yesterday revealed one of the major regrets in his life so far.

    Obasanjo, who is marking his 81st birthday, revealed that the early death of his parents and their inability to wait to enjoy the fruits of the sacrifice they made while raising him had continued to make him unhappy.

    Obasanjo, who has led Nigeria, both as a military man and as a civilian, said this at a ceremony to mark his birthday at an events centre located within the premises of Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library, Abeokuta.


    Obasanjo said, “One thing I always miss and remember is that my parents left this world too early.”

    “The sacrifice they made, they did not wait to see the results. How I wish they had waited to see and eat fruits of their labour.”

    “But going by what Yoruba believe and say, that the dead always watch over their beloved ones and see happenings around them, I am convinced that my parents are happy in their graves, as they watch over me.”

    Obasanjo, however said he would continue to appreciate, praise, adore and worship God, just as he admitted that all those who worked and are still working with him are loyal. He added that his success was based on their loyalty.

    He advised people to serve humanity, noting that it is when humanity is served that one can serve God.

    Obasanjo said, “We must be able to serve humanity, if we can’t serve humanity, we can’t serve God. I do not believe God had created bad situation for Nigeria, or any particular country in Africa. If things are not going right, we must blame ourselves.”
