My major regret in life – fmr President Obasanjo speaks on his 81st birthday celebration

Former President Olusegun Obasanjo, while speaking during his 81st birthday ceremony in Abeokuta revealed what he considers to be the major regret in his life.

According to PREMIUM Times, the elder statesman stated that he wished his parents lived long to enjoy the fruits of their labour and witness his success in life.

“One thing I always miss and remember is that my parents left this world too early. The sacrifice they made, they did not wait to see the results. How I wish they had waited to see and eat fruits of their labour.”

Obasanjo said he draws consolation from the Yoruba belief that the dead always look behind to see happenings after their existence on earth, and with that belief, he said he was sure his late parents would still be happy in their graves.

But going by what Yoruba believe and say, that the dead always watch over their beloved ones and see happenings around them, I am convinced that my parents are happy in their graves, as they watch over me,”
he said.

On his birthday, Obasanjo said he would continue to appreciate, praise adore and worship God as long as he lives.
