Former President Olusegun Obasanjo who has become really spiritual said that fasting and praying are key ingredients that leaders need to lead the people well.
According to him, he fasted and prayed before taking critical decision concerning the country.
Obasanjo made these statements in the course of delivering a speech at the launching of special projects of the Rivers State Government, led by Governor Rotimi Amaechi in the state.
He also applauded the governor for his great efforts at transforming the state, and praised his wife for her contributions to his success as governor.
He said, “You are the only person that can tame this man, I thank you for what you are contributing to his success and works in Rivers State”.
It is believed the invitation to launch projects extended to Obasanjo by the Rivers State government was done to spite President Goodluck Jonathan whom Amaechi is at loggerheads with. Obasanjo is also reportedly not on good terms with the President too.
