Former president, Olusegun Obasanjo, has blamed the religious institutions, parents, teachers and community leaders for the delinquencies and loss of values system in Nigeria, saying they are not living up to the expectations.
He spoke in Abeokuta at the 2017 International Youth Variety Day and public presentation of volume one of his books for children organized as part of activities to mark his 80th birthday.
The former president, recalling his experience while he was in the Yola prison, said some of the inmates were jailed for the offences committed because of the moral decadence in the society.
The former president lamented that Nigerian museums no longer have national treasures.
He explained that the Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library, Abeokuta, has been modelled after the U.S Presidential library to bridge the gap between the attitude and behaviour of not preserving the national treasures.
Also speaking at the event, education minister, Malam Adamu Adamu explained that the library and books of Obasanjo was borne out of his interest and passion to move Nigerian education system forward.
