Former president Olusegun Obasanjo has offered a piece of advice to President Buhari on how to get Nigeria out of recession.

“Things are not what they should be, but we should pray that next year will be better than this year.” “We thank God for those who are alive, we prayed for the souls of those who have laboured for these country and who have passed on to rest in perfect peace.

Obasanjo said “Whoever that has lived to witness the celebration of today should thank God.

OBJ insisted that “Unemployment is a major problem in the country today and if we don’t take care, it will consume all of us. In fact, the rising unemployment is a time bomb,” the ex-president offered.

The Former President recall how he got five job offers as soon as he left high school, the elder statesman of Nigerian politics adduced the youth restiveness in the country to unemployment and counseled the present administration to pay attention to agriculture, else the country may not develop.

He said: “That is why we have to take it as a key of our development else the many educated Nigerians who have no job are like time bomb, sooner than later, it will explode.”
