Former President Olusegun Obasanjo on Saturday said that God spared his life during the COVID-19 pandemic so that he could serve him and humanity more.
The former president stated this during the second annual thanksgiving service of the state chapter of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) which was held at the Olusegun Obsanjo Presidential Library, Abeokuta, Ogun State.
“The fact that you are alive calls for thanksgiving to God.
“It doesn’t matter which way you look at it; those you know, as a result of COVID-19, are no more here with us, not because you are better than them, it is just by the grace of God.
“And if God gives you that grace to still remain on earth, maybe for a purpose.
“I believe part of the purpose is for you to continue to serve humanity and God.
“You cannot be a servant of God if you cannot give thanks to him,” he said.
