God Has Been So Partial To Me – Obasanjo


Former President Olusegun Obasanjo on Sunday disclosed that God has been so partial to him and showering him with favour he never deserved.
Speaking at the thanksgiving service organised by the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Ogun state chapter, to mark his 80th birthday that was held at the Treasure House of God, Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital, the former president said, “God has been partial to me by showing me so much favour that I do not deserve.
“If you don’t know anything about me at all, go to the village where I was born. I was born by parents that were illiterates. There was no road to the village then. One could not boast of even being known in the next village.
“God has done so much for me more than I deserve. I thank God for this.”
Obasanjo, who said his background as a poor Ibogun village boy never gave him a chance in the game of life, recalled the horrifying moment when he was imprisoned on a trumped charge of plotting to dethrone General Sani Abacha as Head of State.
In his sermon, the Deputy National Vice President of the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN), Bishop Francis Wale Oke, described the former president as man of destiny, adding, “Once in a generation, God raises a leader for a generation. We have such people like Abraham, Joseph, Samuel, Ezra, Nehemiah, Esther and Apostle Paul.
“They were raised and commissioned for a specific task and they were focused on that task. God has raised Baba Obasanjo to be in this mould”. Oke stated.
