Jesus would not be mute if he were in Nigeria – Obasanjo

Olusegun Obasanjo

Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has said that if Jesus were in Nigeria at the moment he would not keep quiet on the situation of the country.

Speaking on Sunday at the 64th annual national convention of the Foursquare Gospel Church in Nigeria, Obasanjo revealed that he first attended the church’s convention soon after he was released from prison.


At the convention, the church changed leadership as Rev. Samuel Aboyeji took over as new general overseer from Rev. Felix Meduoye.

Obasanjo called on Christians to act like Christ in whatever situation they find themselves.

“As Christians, we have to be like Christ as we are transformed into the likeness of Christ or little like Christ.

“So, in all positions, situations and events, we should be guided,” he said.

“If Christ was in this position, in this situation or in this event, what would he have done?

“We have a lot to do in the situation we found ourselves in this country today. And make no mistake about it, if we don’t get together and stay together, we would be devoured and that we should not take lightly.


“For me, if Christ was in Nigeria today, he would not keep quiet. He would say it as it should be said. He would speak truth to power. He would have no fear and he would have no intimidation.

“Children of God, you have a responsibility to do and say what Jesus Christ would have done and said if he was in Nigeria today.”
