Monday motivation quote: 5 quotes by former Nigerian President, Olusegun Obasanjo

Going by the recent calls for a political overhaul, it seems like Nigerians are increasingly getting tired of things in the country. 

The level of demotivation has become so high that in the early hours of Monday, 10 August, the hashtag, #EnoughIsEnough started to trend on the social networking app, Twitter.

However, there are still people working in different positions to restore Nigeria’s lost glory. People in different industries – health, technology, academics, and so forth, who are still quite patriotic about the country.

Today’s Monday motivation quote is a list of five quotes from a former president of Nigeria, Olusegun Obasanjo, to inspire you to keep going.

These quotes are mostly from the 1990s and early 2000s when the level of patriotism in the country was still high and hope was still teeming.

See the quotes below:

“In Africa, we are emerging. We have taken responsibility, and know change is required so that we can be empowered in the way of human and capital infrastructure. And then America and Europe and ourselves will be the better for it.”
