According to a statement made available to journalists by his media aide, Kehinde Akinyemi, the former president requested that Nigerian politicians should be made more responsible by the country’s religious leaders.

The statement quoted him as saying, “The next election, if we do not watch it, it may make or break Nigeria. I pray that it will make Nigeria.

“For having both the Sultan of Sokoto and the CAN leader already on the same page, maybe our politicians will listen, and if our politicians don’t listen, maybe our people will listen.”

Obasanjo said Nigerians must watch it so that politicians do not wreck the country.

He added, “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 and I will say it with all sense of responsibility now if we do not watch it, the politicians will wreck this country and we will all regret it.

“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 that we say politics is not for the righteous. Now, if we take the righteous away from politics, and we leave politics to the unrighteous, the unrighteous will smear the righteous with the unrighteousness that they will carry into politics and will have nowhere to go.”

Okoh told Obasanjo that the Nigerian Inter-Religious Council, at its recent meeting in Lagos, resolved not to leave the political space for politicians.

He said, “The council has resolved not to leave the political space to the politicians, that the religious leaders must get involved, not to be partisan, but must give leadership to make sure that the values of our religion are brought to the space to help us to live in peace and work for the unity of the nation, including fighting for justice.”
