In his appreciation speech, the 78-year-old disclosed that the decoration had rekindled memories of when he became Queen’s Scout, adding that leaders must always be prepared for challenges at all times.

“We need a Scout spirit in our country not just for individual benefit alone but also for services to the nation. Work collectively and provide the leadership that will make us get progress,” he emphasised

The elegant leader further called for unity, stating that collective responsibility would make the nation progress in all spheres.

The ex-leader however promised the group that he would help it notify President Muhammadu Buhari to fix a date for his decoration as the Grand Patron of the association.

In his response, Olusoga Sofola-Atibioke who is the Chief Commissioner of Scout Association of Nigeria, explained that having Obasanjo as the group’s ambassador will help build a peaceful and formidable Africa with special focus on Nigeria.
