Olusegun Obasanjo, a former Nigerian President, said that he wants to do things that will make God show him mercy reported Punch Nigeria.
He said this during a thanksgiving service organised by the Ogun State chapter of the Christian Association of Nigeria on Thursday.
He said, “God has done a lot for me. I want to do things that will make God show His Mercy on me. I can’t lie to God.
“The village where I was born is so small that no matter how large you make the map of Nigeria, Ibogun-Olaogun will never appear.
“And yet, somebody born in that village of pure illiterate parents will have the opportunity that I have now to reach the stage that I have reached, to be used to achieve whatever I have been used to achieve, I cannot thank God enough.
“I always say this, whatever I have achieved, whatever I have done, I thank God because it is not me alone, there are those who have worked with me, some of them are dead, some of them are still alive and without them, I will not have been able to achieve much.”
