Obasanjo tells FG ''Let Us See Results''

Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has called on the Federal Government to ensure that the results of its development initiatives are felt by Nigerians.

Obasanjo, who was one of the keynote speakers at the Tony Elumelu Foundation Entrepreneurship Forum, which held on Saturday in Lagos, commended the government for its programmes aimed at creating jobs and diversifying the economy.

Also addressing Abia State Governor, Okezie Ikpeazu, and Deputy Governor, Ebonyi State, Kelechi Igwe, at the event, the ex-president said there was the need to support entrepreneurs in their states to develop products that would be fit for export.

Obasanjo said, “What you say you are doing is commendable, please let us see the results. We have to ensure that doing business in Nigeria is easy. We have to make them (investors) come to Nigeria. We need to be able to register a company at a one-stop shop.”

Earlier, the Minister for Information and Tourism, Lai Mohammed, stated that the government was moving the economy from being a mono-product economy to investing in agriculture, mining and solid minerals sectors, among others.

Also addressing the 1, 000 entrepreneurs of the Tony Elumelu Foundation, the Group Managing Director, Rose of Sharon Group, Folorunso Alakija, advised them to pursue their businesses with passion, adding that they should be ready to take risks.

She said, “The hallmark of any entrepreneur is the ability to take risks. You need to fight yourself, friends, competition and government in order to succeed.”punch reportage.

*What is Baba up to oh!!!..I dont trust him.


  1. See him mouth as if him do anything during him tenure

  2. You didnt talk about the part where obj told alakija that he made her a billionaire

    1. After frustrating her.. He should just go and sit down

  3. Double Mtcheeew

  4. Nigeria past leaders and their penchant for having solutions to the Nigerian problem years after they leave office...Although, Obj did try during his tenure but he could have done better. Besides, he did us a disservice by imposing clueless GEJ on us in order to pacify the Nigerdelta region, but look where we found ourselves today????

  5. "Lai Mohammed, stated that the government was moving the economy from being a mono-product economy to investing in agriculture, mining and solid minerals sectors, among others".... This is what they will keeping saying till rapture. E sir do something enough of the talks.

  6. Nothing, that is his usual way of delivery speeches. So nothing spoil...

      I just felt like calling your name

  7. Mtcheeeeeeeew see who is talking?

    E no go better for MTN
    *hangs leg on the cupboard*

  8. Mcheeeeew again. Yes you have the means to talk to the world but you are the worst suited to say anything about good governance and making Nigeria great.
    If you made Nigeria great, we won't be where we are today. Hallubirton, undone power projects(with money paid out in full), Siemens blight, do and die politricks, huge sums paid for no roads done(ask ogunlewe), murder of the one that had the balls to tell you the truth to mention a few. All these contributed to where we are today. These and more happened under your nation building watch. Have we forgotten that your own son didn't see you as a nation builder? Of course all of us know that nigeria jagajaga under your watch. So please sit and enjoy your loot and allow us to live our pain in peace.
