Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has advised politicians not to see politics as life and death.
Obasanjo spoke in Calabar, Cross River State, at the public presentation of a book, Stepping Forward with Uti J.D. Agba, authored by Goddy Jedy-Agba and Mathias Okoi-Uyouyo.
Obasanjo, who was the special guest of honour at the event, said politicians who didn’t win election could help winners to succeed.
He said, “Politics should not be about life and death. If you cannot be the chief servant, you can be the assistant chief servant. This is because the chief servant cannot do it on his own. He has to work with others.”
Also, Cross River State Governor, Prof. Ben Ayade, said politicians who could not be in power to serve should support those in power.
He stressed the need for all to work together for the development of the people.
“Power is like the wind which blows away. In using power, one must do so with the fear of God,” Ayade said.
The governor presented the book with N5m on behalf of the state government and another N5m on behalf of himself.
One of the authors, Jedy-Agba, who described indigenes of Cross River as one, urged them to work together for the development of the state.
He expressed gratitude to all who made the event a success.
Uti J.D. Agba is the monarch of Obudu in Cross River State. The book was reviewed by Prof. Kalu Uka of the University of Uyo.
