Obasanjo said this while speaking at a thanksgiving service organised for him by the Christian Association of Nigeria, Ogun State chapter.

The service was held at the Chapel of Christ the Glorious King on the premises of the Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library, Abeokuta.

The former President stressed that he would continue to do things that would make God show him mercy.

He attributed his success in the military and in the civilian government to God’s mercy.

He said, “God has done a lot for me. I want to do things that will make God show His mercy on me. I can’t lie to God.

“How many of you know Ibogun-Olaogun? The village where I was born is so small that no matter how large you make the map of Nigeria, Ibogun-Olaogun will never appear.

“And yet, somebody born in that village of pure illiterate parents will have the opportunity that I have now, to reach the stage that I have reached, to be used to achieve whatever I have been used to achieve, I cannot thank God enough.

“I always say this, whatever I have achieved, whatever I have done, I thank God because it is not me alone, there are those who have worked with me, some of them are dead, some of them are still alive and without them, I will not have been able to achieve much. On occasions like this, let us just thank God and keep thanking God.”

In his address, Ogun State Governor, Dapo Abiodun, attributed his victories at the tribunal, Court of Appeal and the Supreme Court to God’s mercy.

He pledged that his administration would be accountable and transparent with all financial records.

Abiodun, however, called on residents to cooperate with his administration in the development of Ogun State

The governor described Obasanjo as the “world ambassador, global icon and a son of Ogun State whom everybody is pleased with.”

He urged Nigerians to emulate the lifestyle of Obasanjo.

Abiodun promised that his administration would govern the state with the fear of God.

In his goodwill message, the Bishop of Egba Anglican Diocese, Bishop Emmanuel Adekunle, advised Nigerians to desist from anything that could ruin the country.

Adekunle attributed Nigeria’s failure to lack of following the rules of God.

He advised that rather than lamenting on the unfavourable condition of the country, Nigerians should follow the commandments of God.

The cleric called on Nigerians to invest in the country rather than taking their wealth overseas.

Dignitaries at the service included a former governor of Ogun State, Gbenga Daniel, a former governor of Ekiti State, Olusegun Oni, and the President, African Development Bank, Dr Akinwunmi Adesina.

Others are a business mogul, Chief Kessington Adebutu, a former Speaker, Ogun State House of Assembly, Suraj Adekunbi and the governorship candidate of the Action Democratic Congress in the last election in the state, Gboyega Isiaka.
