Why I Didn't Die In 2020 - Olusegun Obasanjo

Olusegun Obasanjo revealed the reason why he is still alive to see the year 2021.. My life was spared by almighty God for a purpose to serve him and humanity more and more.. “Why i didn’t die in 2020” he said during the second annual thanksgiving service of the Christian Association of Nigeria held on saturday at the Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library, Abeokuta.


The Former President of Nigeria, Mr. Olusegun Obasanjo, has claimed God spared his life to witness 2021 despite the challenges of the past year 2020, considering the out break of corona virus and the #Endsar and #Endpolicebrutality movement by Nigerian youths all across the Nation which lead to lost of lives and destruction of properties owned by the government and non governmental bodies.

Revealing the reason why he is still very much alive, the former President Mr. Olusegun Obasanjo urged those who survived COVID-19, and the #Endsars killing to thank God for His mercies and grace which see them through 2020 hardship.

According to Obasanjo, he was spared by God purposely to “serve Him and humanity more and more”.

Obasanjo stated this while speaking at the second annual Thanksgiving Service of the state chapter of the Christian Association of Nigeria held on Saturday, at the Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library, Abeokuta.

He said.

It is our duty to give thanks to God. You will be the most ungrateful person if you do not perform the duty of giving thanks to God.

In all circumstances, give thanks. Therefore, if you fail to give thanks, you are failing a very significant duty of yours as a Christian.

Last year 2020 was a very challenging year not only for us in Nigeria, not only for us in Africa but for the whole world.

The fact that you are alive calls for giving thanks to God. It doesn’t matter which way you look at it, those who you know as a result of Covid-19 are no more here with us not because you are better than they are, more knowledgeable than they are; it’s just by the grace of God.

And if God gives you that grace, to still remain on earth, maybe for a purpose and I believe part of the purpose is for you to continue to serve humanity and to serve God. You cannot be a servant of God if you cannot give thanks to him.

The purpose of being here is to perform our duty as Christians, by giving thanks to God.
