Former President Olusegun Obasanjo, is charging African leaders to find home-grown solutions to the myriad of problems confronting the continent.
Obasanjo made this known while addressing a delegation of students and youths, across African countries, at the Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library, OOPL, Abeokuta, in Ogun State.
The delegation, which included students’ leaders from Ethiopia and the Tigray Region, was led by the President of All-Africa Students’ Union, AASU, Osisiogu Osikenyi.
The students were on a ‘thank you’ visit to Obasanjo for facilitating the permanent cessation of hostilities agreement between the government of Ethiopia and the Tigray Peoples’ Liberation Front in Pretoria, in 2022.
The former President, who says it was important for Africa to consider the peculiarities of its people in designing and implementing workable home-grown solutions to the problems confronting the continent, says no problem in Africa is too great to solve.
