"No one can buy my conscience " - Olusegun Obasanjo says

Chief Olusegun Obasanjo has said at a recent event that he isn't sure anybody can buy his conscience. He also slammed people, especially the Yorubas who now value money, instead of moral values, such as: hardwork, truth, integrity, industry and truthfulness. 



He made the statement while speaking at the inauguration of Professor Abayomi Oluwatosin Jiboku Building and Entrepreneurship Centre at the Lariken International College. 

In his words, he says: " “One of the ways we have problems in our society today is the values we cherish. Money-making is the value now pervasive.

“In Yorubaland, money-making is not one of the values that we take to. Omoluabi, truthfulness, integrity, truth, industry and hard work were our values. Where have they gone? Why have we put them aside and all we are striving for is money? Where is honour in our values?

“Nowadays, anyone who has money can buy anything but not with me. If you have money, you cannot buy my conscience and support for anything. In any case, if you have all the money in the world, of what purpose will it be?

 “How do you describe success? I define success as you making a place better than you met it. It is not the amount of money you have, not the number of houses built, not the number of cars you have. It is how much you have contributed to making a place better than you find it.”
