Former President Olusegun Obasanjo, has vowed not to stop raising his voice against the government whenever there is need for it even at the point of death.

The ex-President disclosed this on Tuesday at a two-day interactive session of the Presidential Youth Mentorship Retreat, held at the Youth Development Centre, Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library, Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital.

Obasanjo said God has favoured him to live long after serving as military head of state and as democratically-elected president of the country.

He said the youths across the African region needed mentorship by their leaders.

Addressing the youths, Obasanjo advised them to sacrifice themselves individually and collectively to make the African continent a great nation.

“I’m not afraid of death at my age, God has favoured me and I appreciate God’s blessings on me over these years.

”My concern over the years is to build leaders of Africa. My greatest concern is tomorrow and that tomorrow begins today.

“The world today is in crisis; I believed that youths need interaction from leaders and learning from them. I want to be inspired at the end of this programme.

“I want you to identify yourself and use your identity to achieve service to God and humanity,” he told the youths.
