Obasanjo Best President Ever – His Eminence Mbang

The former Prelate of the Methodist Church Nigeria, His Eminence, Dr. Sunday Mbang, said on Sunday that erstwhile President Olusegun Obasanjo will be remembered for first bringing his programmes to God before execution, describing the former President as the “best President Nigeria has ever had” since independence.
Mbang who said he owes no one any apology about his opinion on Obasanjo and leadership in Nigeria, added that one of the things that ensured the former President’s success was the habit of always bringing the government’s policies and programmes first to God in prayer before making it public.
Mbang spoke in Abeokuta while delivering a sermon during Thanksgiving Service at the Chapel of Christ the Glorious King (CCGK) within the Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library(OOPL), Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital, to mark the 80th birthday ceremony of the former President.
The church service was attended by former President Goodluck Jonathan, former Head of Interim National Government, Chief Ernest Shonekan, Chairperson of Chairperson of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS), Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf, Governor Ibikunle Amosun, Governor of Abia State, Okezie Ikpeazu, Senator Godswill Akpabio, former Ogun Governor Gbenga Daniel, the Ooni of Ife, Oba Enitan Ogunwusi, among others.
The former President of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), said Obasanjo succeeded as leader because he recognised the place of God in the affairs of man and accorded it to him through regular morning devotion in Aso Rock as well as getting some men of God to also join him to seek God’s favour on every of his decision and programme in government.
He recalled that God in his mercy was with the two term President of Nigeria on the ticket of the Peoples Democratic Party(PDP), not only to help him excel, but also to ensure that all conspiracies and plans (by the National Assembly) to impeach him failed while his tenure lasted.
He said whatever that is being done in the country to move it forward – be it the anti – corruption crusade or the reviving of the agricultural sector since Obasanjo left office, were not new but just a continuation of all that the elder statesman had started.
He noted that his successors did not even handle some of them right.
According to Mbang, if successive government after Obasanjo had followed the agricultural policies with the same vigour and diligence displayed while in office, the country would not have been in a precarious economic condition today.
