Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has appealed to religious leaders to save the country from collapse in the hand of politicians whom he said are not God fearing.

The former military and civilian leader spoke when the new President of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Most Reverend Daniel Okoh, visited him at his Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library (OOPL) Penthouse yesterday in Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital.

Obasanjo was quoted in a statement by his Special Assistant on Media, Kehinde Akinyemi, as saying that religious leaders could make politicians to become more responsible.

“If you stand on the truth, you stand for justice and equity. It is then the politicians will not be able to mess us around. I will say it with all sense of responsibility now: if we do not watch it, the politicians will wreck this country, and we all regret it.

“And where can we look for salvation? That is where you, religious leaders, have a significant role to play. I think it’s the mistake of the past (particularly in the Christendom) that we said politics is not for the righteous.”
