Politics Is Not A Do Or Die Affair–Obasanjo

Former President of Nigeria, Olusegun Obasanjo said on Saturday that politics should not be treated as a matter of life and death.

Obasanjo stated this at the public presentation of a book titled: Stepping Forward With Uti J.D. Agba, written by Goddy Jedy Agba and Mathias Okoi-Uyouyo, in Calabar, Cross River State.

Obasanjo, who was the special guest of honour at the event, said politicians who failed to win elections can help winners to succeed.

He said: “If you cannot be the chief servant you can be the assistant chief servant. This is because the chief servant cannot do it on his own. He has to work with others.”

Also speaking, Cross River State governor, Ben Ayade, also urged politicians defeated in polls to support those in power.

“Power is like the wind which blows away. In using power, one must do so with the fear of God,” the governor said.
