Former President, Olusegun Obasanjo, Speaks Of Death, Reveals He Has A 30-Year Old Incurable Disease


HAPPENING NOW: Former President, Olusegun Obasanjo, Speaks Of Death, Reveals He Has A 30-Year Old Incurable Disease

Former President, Olusegun Obasanjo, on Friday afternoon, revealed that he been managing a 30-year old incurable diabetes.

Obasanjo made this shocking disclosure shortly after a two-kilometre awareness walk from the Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library, through the MKO Abiola way, in Abeokuta.
The walk was organised by the South-West Zone of the Diabetes Association of Nigeria, in conjunction with the Library, to celebrate the 2017 World Diabetes Day.
He said: “Diabetes is not a disease that should kill. I was diagnosed to be diabetic more than 30 years ago, but rather, I am growing strong. If you do not believe I am growing strong and you did not witness this walk, come and see me at night, you will know I am growing strong; come and see me in the morning, you will know I am growing, even in the afternoon, you will know I am growing strong.
“What is necessary is the management of diabetes. Some people said some diseases are incurable, but diabetes is manageable.
“My Headmaster in Primary School was diagnosed at the age of 50 and died at age 85, you will agree with me that he tried.
“What to do is that if you are diabetic, do not be nonchalant about it, and do not eat carelessly. Three things are important; the food you eat, regular exercise, and prescribed medication, those are the three most important things.
“You can be diabetic and still live till 100. I do not know when I would die, but I am above 80 and many of the youth could not catch up with my pace during the exercise this morning, many of them were running after me.
“This is my message. Whether you are diabetic or you have a family or friend with diabetes; diabetes is not a killer disease or it should not be a killer disease unless you are careless”, Obasanjo said.
