Former President

Obasanjo said though the country is not where it ought to be now, he expressed optimism that things will surely get better.

Obasanjo said “Our development is impaired; it is not what it ought to be, but we must get it right.”

“Unemployment is a major problem in the country today and if we don’t take care, it will consume all of us. In fact, the rising unemployment is a time bomb,” he added.

He said the high unemployment rate in the country is the cause of youth unrest, adding that the issue should be addressed.

Obasanjo also highlighted some areas he said will promote development, they include: security, education, food and nutrition, water and sanitation, shelter and transportation.

Former President Olusegun Obasanjo recently announced that it is time for females to be elected as Governors in Nigeria.
