Obasanjo stated this in Bayelsa State at Ijaw National Academy(INA) Kaiama while asking questions from the students of the institution who  expressed their frustrations in the country.
According to him, “If Nigeria does not have hope I would find a rope and commit suicide immediately because then what am I living for? I am an incurable optimist in Nigeria. Nigeria has hope.
“There are many things we should have done as we should have done them. There is no doubt about that. But that does not mean Nigeria does not have hope.  Look, hope is what drives any human being. A person without hope is like a person without life. How can I therefore say that Nigeria has no hope? Nigeria has hope and you are part of the hope of Nigeria. You asking me that question heightens my conviction that Nigeria has hope.  This country in spite of our difficulties, we have hope.”
