        At the event held at the Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library (OOPL), the former president said he had made many mistakes in his life, saying the picking of his number two was a genuine mistake that God made him to overcome.

        He said:

        “One of the mistakes I made was picking my Number Two when I wanted to become the president. But because it was a genuine mistake God saved me. “The second one was when Abacha wanted to arrest me. When. Abacha wanted to arrest me, I was told by the American ambassador that they will arrest me and that America has asked that I should be given an asylum. I said no. It could have been a mistake because I could have lost my life. “I will say there are many things that could have been a mistake but God saved me from them all.”
