President Olusegun Obasanjo has urged Nigerians to turn to God if the country is to overcome intractable problems that have bedevilled Africa’s most populous nation for nearly forty-six years. “We have come out of the dark past and as we continue to work together and plan together, our dear country, in God’s name, we will continue to make progress,” Obasanjo said in a nationwide broadcast. “We are a strong, God-fearing, proud and productive people; we must continue to make progress.” (Ecumenical News International)
