Obasanjo, an example of the kind of leader Nigeria shouldn’t have.

They then went on a junk food rampage - eagerly snatching food from ...
Mischievous monkey, clever in his own sense
How long would Baba Obasanjo keeps shitting on everyone and expects them to keep packing it? Can any man ever be so callous and mischievous in utterances and deeds? A graver disappointment to young people of this generation, who seeks positive exemplary models to pattern their lives after so as to actualize the developmental goal of our country. And here we have leaders and elder state’s men like OBJ, whom people should be looking up to failing in every moral senses and wasting the grace the creator, and the goodwill and resource the country had invested on him.

 Chief, General, grand master know it all, and do no wrong OBJ, the principality and the example of the kind of leaders a country shouldn’t have, except a cursed nation was at it again when he announced that he love Nigeria so much, against those seeking her to destroy! What a paradox!

OBJ, just as the military had warned recently-needs know that he’s not the only general or leader this country had ever had. We have Gen. Yakubu Gowon, (aka Jack Gowon), the civil war chief commander, we have the ever evasive maradonic and chameleonic darling bomb, General IBB, what about GMB, Abdulsalam Abubakar, Shagari, Shonekan, and all these respectable compatriots and leaders who knows how and when to advised themselves on how to behave and respond to national issues are in this great country, not like the ‘Motor park touts’ style of OBJ, if I might borrow from the President’s adjective.
OBJ it is, not too long ago, his atrocities it was which went against the Nigerian Nation, bastardizing and the degrading our institutions, the most instrumental pillars on which any expected fruits from any democratic practice could be realised.

Here is what Iyabo Obasanjo, the daughter of our ‘not the kind of leader we deserve said about her father “  
“It brings me no joy to have to write this but since you started this trend of open letters I thought I would follow suit since you don’t listen to anyone anyway. The only way to reach you may be to make the public aware of some things. As a child well brought up by my long-suffering mother in Yoruba tradition, I have been reluctant to tell the truth about you but as it seems you still continue to delude yourself about the kind of person you are and I think for posterity’s sake it is time to set the records straight.
“I will return to the issue of my long-suffering mother later in this letter.
“Like most Nigerians, I believe there are very enormous issues currently plaguing the country but I was surely surprised that you will be the one to publish such a treatise. I remember clearly as if it was yesterday the day I came over to Abuja from Abeokuta when I was Commissioner of Health in OgunState, specifically to ask you not to continue to pursue the third term issue.
“I had tried to bring it up when your sycophantic aides were present and they brushed my comments aside and as usual you listened to their self-serving counsel. For you to accuse someone else of what you so obviously practiced yourself tells of your narcissistic megalomaniac personality.
Everyone around for even a few minutes knows that the only thing you respond to is praise and worship of you. People have learnt how to manipulate you by giving you what you crave. The only ones that can’t and will not stroke your ego are family members who you universally treat like shit (sic) apart from the few who have learned to manipulate you like others. Before I continue, Nigerians are people who see conspiracy and self-service in everything because I think they believe everyone is like them. This letter is not in support of President Jonathan or APC or any other group or person, but an outpouring from my soul to God. I don’t blame you for the many atrocities you have been able to get away with, Nigerians were your enablers every step of the way. People ultimately get leaders that reflect them.
And here is what his son, Gbenga Obasanjo admitted about his father, our “NO!” leader:
Gbenga Obasanjo
Gbenga Obasanjo, first son of former head of state, and president, Gen, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, who alleged that his father was having an affair with his wife of eight years, thereby, seeking annulment of the abominable adulterous union.
“The Petitioner avers that the Respondent also got rewarded for her adulterous acts with several oil contracts with the NNPC from his father, General Olusegun Obasanjo, amongst which was the NNPC consultancy training in supply chain management and project management awarded to her company Bowen and Brown.The Petitioner avers that the lurid sexual relationship of the Respondent, with her own father, Otunba Alex Onabanjo and his father General Olusegun Obasanjo, has brought him great pain and psychological trauma and is the primary reason for the breakdown of his marriage to the Respondent” and lots more.

Here also is what Gen. Alabi Isama said in response to OBJ’s “My Watch” Super story book:
 I’m gravely pained to be trading words with General Olusegun Obasanjo once again on the history of Nigeria-Biafra War. He is an elder and a former ruler who, ordinarily, should be treated with utmost respect.Olusegun Osoba
But how can one genuinely respect an old man who tells lies like a badly raised child? Obasanjo has obviously not recovered from the shock inflicted on him by my book, The Tragedy of Victory in which I exposed the tissues of lies in his civil war memoir, My Command. It is
said that a lie may travel for a thousand miles, but it takes just one step of truth to catch up with it.”
What about what Prof, Wole Soyinka, the Nobel laurel thinks of the mischiefs tendencies of General OBJ:
 In response, Professor Soyinka, in a piece titled “Watch And Pray, Watch And Prey”, said:
APC’s visit to OBJ: Nigeria heading for a shipwreck -Soyinka “I despise that species of humanity whose stock-in-trade is to concoct lies simply to score a point, win an argument, puff up his or her own ego, denigrate or attempt to destroy a fellow being. However, even within such deplorable species, a special pit of universal opprobrium is surely reserved for those who even lack the courage of their own lies, but must foist them on others.”
 “For now, let me single out just one of the most glaring instances of this man’s compulsive career of lying, one sample that the media can readily check upon and use as a touchstone – if they do need one – in assessing our author’s multifaceted claims and commentaries on people and events.I refer here to the grotesque and personally insulting statement that he has attributed to me for some inscrutable but obviously diversionary reasons.”
“In the process, this past Master of Mendacity brazenly implicates an innocent young man, Akin Osuntokun, who once served him as a special adviser. Instead of conferring dignity on a direct rebuttal of an ignoble fabrication, I shall simply make a personal, all-embracing attestation: When an old man stuffs a lie into the throat of an age-mate of his own children – omo inu e! – we can only pity an irredeemable egomaniac whose dotage is headed for twilight disgrace,” Soyinka continued.
I also have here, that of Chief Segun Osoba, former governor of Ogun state:
Osoba said though he had not read Obasanjo’s book, he was appalled by the aspect of the book where Obasanjo said he did not initiate the relationship between the disbanded Alliance for Democracy and the Peoples Democratic Party.
He said he recalled how Obasanjo approached the AD governors “virtually on his knees, begging us to come and rescue him and support his second term agenda.”
He said that contrary to Obasanjo’s claim that his vice president, Atiku Abubakar, was at the forefront of the relationship with Afenifere, Obasanjo was always flying down at the shortest notice from Abuja to meet with the late leader of the Afenifere, Abraham Adesanya, who always chose the venue of their meetings.
Don’t you reason something could be wrong with this old mischievous man?
