Former Nigerian president, Olusegun Obasanjo on Monday reveled his biggest regret in life to be the failure of his late parents to stay alive and reap the fruit of their labour.
Marking his 81 birthday at Marque Events Centre located within the premises of Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library, Abeokuta, Obasanjo said he wished his parent were alive to see his success.
“One thing I always miss and remember is that my parents left this world too early. The sacrifice they made, they did not wait to see the results. How I wish they had waited to see and eat fruits of their labour.
“But going by what Yoruba believe and say, that the dead always watch over their beloved ones and see happenings around them, I am convinced that my parents are happy in their graves, as they watch over me.”
