I want to go to heaven – Obasanjo

Elder statesman and former Nigeria President, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo said on Saturday he will like to go to heaven so as to ”join the host sing.”

Obasanjo who urged Christians to be prepared for the second coming of Jesus Christ as the end of the world is near, spoke during the 2017 camp meeting concert by Apostolic Faith Church choir and orchestra at the camp ground Igbesa, Ogun state.

Obasanjo said: “You have to be fully prepared for the second coming of our Lord, there is no compromise. I have a friend who will always say that when we get to heaven that we will be exhausted praising God and it will be like a prison and will be very boring.

“But what I have seen this afternoon by the choir, I will want to go to heaven and join the hosts to sing.

“If this is an example of what praising God in heaven will be, then I want to be part of it. If what I have seen here is an indication of how heaven will be, I will like go to heaven.

“Jesus Christ came to the world to show us the way to salvation and eternal life. We have a good heritage and we have everything to be proud of.”

Obasanjo said God could not fix Nigeria but the people have to invite God into their lives collectively and individually.

“We have a lot of things wrong with this country if all Nigerians are sincere,” he said.
