As one of the first guests on Nduka Obaigbena’s newly launched, Arise TV, former president Olusegun Obasanjo spoke on why he was still so active six years since he handed over as president.
The former president said there was no retirement for him and pledged to continue doing good so long as he had the breadth of God in him and capacity to do so.
”There is no retirement in doing good in life and so long as you have breadth, you should continue to do good,” Obasanjo said in the interview monitored in Lagos,” Obasanjo said.
He said his good works through his presidential library was in line with what is obtained in America where former presidents launch their presidential libraries after leaving office.
In the interview which was recorded in London, where Obasanjo is scheduled to launch his Olusegun Obasanjo Foundation on Friday, Baba called on the international community to mobilise funds to help coalition forces in Mali. He said that the Malian intervention was launched for the benefit of the global community.
“The point is that if we have a situation anywhere in the world that affects the whole world, the world must be able to raise the needed money in order to deal with the situation,” adding “if the will is there, it would be done.”
