I see hope in the determination, resilience and the indomitable spirit of Nigerians. I see hope, in their resistance when they are pushed to the wall. I see hope, in the zeal, commitment and courage in the face of adversity. I see hope, in the bound and incurable optimism of young Nigerians.

I see hope, in the dynamism, vibrancy and richness of our culture. And I see hope, in the commonality of humanity,” Obasanjo said.
