What Does Obasanjo Want? By Chido Onumah

Columnist: 
Chido Onumah

You couldn’t miss the headline. I am referring to the conclave of gerontocrats that took place earlier in the week. It centred on former president, Olusegun Obasanjo.

“Anenih in secret meeting with Obasanjo”, was how The Guardian headlined the event. If there was any doubt about the purpose of the meeting, Anthony Anenih, chair of the Board of Trustees (BoT) of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) and successor to Obasanjo in the very lucrative post of BoT chairman, dispelled it when he told reporters, “In 2015 we (PDP) will do what we know how to do best”. Of course, we all know what the PDP knows how to do best. And we have Obasanjo to thank for that.

For whatever it is worth, Obasanjo is still held in high regard in the PDP family and he may well continue to direct the affairs of the party as long as he is alive. “I am here to see my leader (Obasanjo). I am here to pay my respect and indeed I am here with my colleagues, some members of the Board of Trustees of our party to discuss some issues that affect the corporate existence of this country,” Anenih gushed after the meeting. “As you can see, we are all smiling, don’t you see me smiling? And my leader too is smiling. So, we are quite happy about the outcome”.

Unfortunately, the Nigerian crisis is no laughing matter. It would be tragic to leave the discussion about the corporate existence of Nigeria to the Obasanjos and Anenihs amongst us.

Chief (Gen.) Olusegun Matthew Okikiola Aremu Obasanjo, GCFR, is an enigma, in and out of office. I am sure he cherishes that role. Nobody, dead or alive, has had more impact on the course of post-independence history of the country than the retired general.

Obasanjo evokes different memories for different people. Academics and students in tertiary institutions in the late 70s would remember his assault on students, academics and education in general. Those in secondary schools also have memories of that era of despotism. In a remarkable show of defiance, Afrobeat icon, Fela Anikulakpo-Kuti, withdrew his son, Femi, from Baptist Academy in Lagos State when Obasanjo deployed soldiers to secondary schools.

Like President Goodluck Jonathan, Obasanjo took charge of the Nigerian state after the death of his boss. It was in February 1976. The head of state, Gen. Murtala Ramat Muhammed, had been assassinated. That was when Obasanjo came into our consciousness. Before then, the much we knew about him was from the conflicting stories of his exploits during the civil war.
Ever since, Obasanjo has refused to go away. Through a combination of luck, guile and opportunism, he has managed to remain a constant figure in our political evolution. To his admirers, Obasanjo is the “father of modern Nigeria”; the “Mandela” of Nigeria. After all, like the legendary Nelson Mandela, South African anti-apartheid revolutionary, politician and president (1994 to 1999), he moved from prison to the presidency.
A few weeks ago, after my article titled “IBB’s two-party solution”, a responder had noted, “I always take the view that Obj (Obasanjo), IBB and Gowon -- in that order -- more than any of our ex-rulers had the best opportunities to set our country on a path to true greatness and all of them failed woefully. It is the enduring tragedy of our (potentially) great nation that the incumbent may yet surpass them all in terms of cluelessness and damage inflicted on our country”.

Of course, this is not hyperbole. In 1979, Obasanjo had the chance to launch the country on the path of genuine democracy, but he bungled it. Twenty-eight years later, in 2007, after eight years as civilian president, he had the opportunity to make amends, but he squandered it in his characteristic devious manner.

If you do not know Obasanjo, you would probably mistake him for a global expert sent by the UN to oversee events in Nigeria. Ever since he reluctantly left power in 2007, he has never missed an opportunity to remind us of how ungrateful we are as a people for not recognising his trailblazing role as the father of democracy in Nigeria.

Obasanjo has warned about revolution. He has talked about unemployment, corruption and what they portend for the country.  “I’m afraid, and you know I am a General. When a General says he is afraid, that means the danger ahead is real and potent,” he told the West African regional conference on youth employment in Senegal, earlier in the year. “Today, rogues, armed robbers are in the State Houses of Assembly and the National Assembly,’’ Obasanjo said not too long ago. Of course, he is right; except that he failed to take his share of the blame for the emergence of these scoundrels who have taken over our democratic space.

In a keynote lecture at the Agricultural and Rural Management Training Institute (ARMTI) in Ilorin, Kwara State, Obasanjo again warned, “We are sitting on a keg of gun-powder in this country due to the problems of unemployment of our youths. We have almost 150 universities now in the country turning out these young Nigerians but without job opportunities for them”.

Recently, Obasanjo blamed poor leadership for the country’s woes. He forgot to add that apart from his forgettable leadership (1976-1979 and 1999-2007), he carefully orchestrated the poor leadership we had in 1979 and again in 2007. Fortunately for him, we have in President Jonathan a ruler who has redefined the meaning of poor leadership which in a way makes Obasanjo look like a messiah.  

That is Obasanjo’s modus operandi. As one writer noted, “In 1983 when the Shagari government started to wobble, he came out to play prophet”. It was the same government he installed four years earlier. When the Babangida regime was at its wit’s end and its demise looked certain, Obasanjo attacked the regime’s disastrous economic policy dubbed Structural Adjustment Programme (SAP), arguing that the policy needed a “human face”.
Obasanjo understands what democracy entails, but he does not have the moral courage to be guided by its rule. When Gen. Babangida annulled the June 12, 1993, presidential election won by Chief Moshood Abiola, Obasanjo told a bewildered nation that, “Abiola is not the messiah”. Like an addict hankering after a fix, it was his way of saying he needed the job. It was that ambition that landed him in Abacha’s prison after he reinvented himself and became a “born-again democrat”. It’s been twenty years since the annulment; and three disastrous elections (two supervised by Obasanjo in 2003 and 2007) after, we are still talking about Obasanjo.

In a 2008 piece titled "Obama's election and the needed change", Obasanjo, while congratulating then President-elect, Barack Obama, noted, “The feeling of change that Senator Obama engendered through his campaign for the White House represents a significant theme of change we have all aspired and fought for in different areas, regions, cultures and historical times. The desire for change has never been the question nor has it ever been in question. It is the extent, the range, the tone, the quantity, the quantum and the sustenance of change that has always been the question”.

“Rooted in the achievements of Senator Obama is a far more significant theme for people aspiring to lead their communities, particularly for young Africans in Africa. It is the aspirations, the determination, the energy, the strategic thinking, planning and execution that Senator Obama and his campaign team have brought into what is being regarded as a movement. Entire generations have been roused and invited to bring about a change that they and the rest of the world desire”.

It is a measure of his hypocrisy that Obasanjo has remained the greatest threat to change in Nigeria. How can young Nigerians aspire to lead their communities when men who are almost 80 years old like Obasanjo and Anenih have sworn not to exit the political space? Clearly, in tackling the PDP and Jonathan in 2015, we must realize that we have to contend with the Obasanjo factor.  

With all due respect, Mr. ex-President, you have earned the right to leave us the heck alone!

Great article, just what I wanted to find.

Hi, all is going well here and ofcourse every one is sharing facts,
that's genuinely excellent, keep up writing.

Obj will yet account for his atrocities in this country!

@KaparaK "Note also that you quoted mostly Nigerian sources,"

What is wrong with Nigerian sources? Does that change the flagrant abuse of offices by the PDP governors? Does that whitewash the underhand sleight of the hand of OBJ's transactions with Transcorp?

Ribadu, a Nigerian, as EFCC HEAD, brought out 31 governors (including GEJ, his wife Patience, Ibori, eventually convicted in London, as well as Tinubu) to account for their stewardship. Is this part of the foundation you effusively referred to as OBJ laying down? Obj will yet account for his atricities in this country.

Fellow Nigerians and

Fellow Nigerians and Africans, I am a devotee of the present Satguru Maharaj Ji and as a Rosi I have discovered that we have been fooled to become the food for all whites to eat and feel good through preaching the mantra called democracy but they go against it anytime they like They de regulated every institution but failed impossibly in papaw, yam, peas, sun, moon, the rivers, etc. Nothing was debased because man was a perfect extension of the genius of divinity (GOD) known as God or the Creator. In the principles and natural laws, it is a taboo for the younger ones to insult or abuse the elders no matter the situation except where it is discovered and there is proven evidence that murder and treason has taken place. After saving the world from collapse on 6th and 7th July and later 31st December 1999 OBJ was used to save

Nigeria from the hands of the

Nigeria from the hands of the northern oligarchy whose military wing that was once hidden has now been exposed as Boko Haram, making it clear for all to see that we have been under heavy manipulation for long and so this is not the time to point accusing fingers at anybody. Compare with others, OBJ has made it. That he has a Gestapo privately trained to destroy is just mere fabulism. ITS BLATANT LIE/ We should go back to our culture because it is nucleus and never fails. The trouble today is that Nigerians are being forced to be Christian or Islamic country whereas we have our culture before oyinbos arrived. are the custodian of all things in creation. It can not be forced. There MUST be law and order for all practitioners in the system/institution, OBJ is the one we can trust now to lay down a new way of life with out support.

@Elmango tacitly confirmed my points with his 6 listed points...

...that are among OBJ's other accomplishments of which none of OBJ's 9 predecessors can list one as theirs. OBJ laid the foundation for others to move ahead, if detractors like you would allow them with your empty nags. Even the world’s #1 economy has failing school systems, gap between the rich & the poor, etc. There is no utopia. Note also that you quoted mostly Nigerian sources, reporting rumors & innuendoes as rotten as dead fish could be, Nnamani, especially. Whatever happens to independent sources with no hidden agenda? One reality that is undisputable is what the Economist wrote that Nigeria is lurching ahead, unsteadily perhaps, yet on the heels of surpassing South Africa within a decade as the most powerful economy in Africa which is our manifest destiny, despite naysayers like you. That is where we are different - I see Naija's glass as half-full compared to your emptiness.

@kaparak, our opinions are more like 2 parallel lines (E)

6) Upward review of the minimum wage.

What has inflation done to the meagre increment COMPARED to this SKY-ROCKETTING GDP you mentioned?

Nigerians are not looking for handouts you know. We are generally hardworking people and given the right environment by the PDP crooks that are rapidly wrecking this nation, we can match anyone in the world; once given the chance. Nigerians deserve to be treated as human beings with a right to dignity and decency of life.

With the foregoing, it is clear that your position and mine about Nigeria and the state OBJ left it, are actually even more divergent. Our opinions are more like 2 parallel lines. Have a good weekend.

@kaparak, our opinions are more like 2 parallel lines (D)

5) Establishment of poverty alleviation program.

There is a strong correlation between corruption and poverty level. Despite our GDP skyrocketing to the skies, Nigerians have not benefitted or even felt the impactor seen a trickle down effect. In the health, how many Nigerians have decent food, water or treatment in our hospitals?

FG is currently shopping for N921.4bn for ongoing road projects all over the country. What happened to Annenih's N300 billion for ROADS that Orji public challenged him on? Has Annenih not had enough of public funds and office?

What new ideas is GEJ expecting him to bring to the table? Is this not part of the issue of dearth of new thinking on the part of this government, or is it the lack of political will to change the CORRUPT and DECAYING status quo?

@kaparak, our opinions are more like 2 parallel lines (C)

3)Introduction of UBE.
Its estimated there are up to 10 million Almajiris in the North. Why are there so many if UBEC was so successful? Why the recent FG announcement of N5bn for almajiri schools? Educate yourself on the scope of this problem - http://bauchichronicles.wordpress.com/2013/03/21/almajiri/

It is one thing to introduce, it is another THING to see it succeed. UBE program is laudable: to provide universal, free, and compulsory education to every Nigerian child of school age, up to the secondary school level. Have you have heard of the scam in UBEC? "Three UBEC officials told SR that Modibbo, former “First Lady” Turai Yar’adua, former Agriculture Minister Abba Ruma, and former Minister of State for Education Aishatu Dukku pocketed the entire budget for the printing and distribution of the textbooks.." http://saharareporters.com/news-page/ubec-scam-how-modibbo-wife-steal-co...

@kaparak, our opinions are more like 2 parallel lines (B)

2) Monitoring...to recover looted public funds.

Indeed! It remained at the monitoring stage. Whatever happened to Abacha's loot?

How Obasanjo blocked recovery of IBB's $2bn loot!"investigations has now revealed that the Obasanjo administration refused offers by the experts, including those from UN sources, to trace monies looted from Nigeria during the Babangida regime, but encouraged the pursuit of Abacha stolen funds." .."although about $5 to 6b of the stolen funds were stashed away by Late General Sani Abacha, General Ibrahim Babangida looted almost $25b." http://nigeriaworld.com/columnist/laoluakande/071002news.html

You must be aware of OBJ's comment on IBB and out-of-court settlement for Abacha family to keep $100 million of looted funds!

Nigeria's CPI improved slightly because of the use of EFCC to selectively clobber those not in OBJ's good books. http://archive.transparency.org/policy_research/surveys_indices/cpi/2007

@kaparak, our opinions are more like 2 parallel lines (A)

1)The inauguration of anti-corruption bill.

Ken Nnamani faulted the law establishing the EFCC.
“Unlike the ICPC where the chairman can be fired by the president only with the consent of two-third majority of the National Assembly, the EFCC boss can unilaterally get fired by the President.

“When we were in the Senate, we made conscious effort to reverse the law. We noticed that EFCC was a mere tool in the hand of the president. We passed the bill but it was not signed into law."
http://www.punchng.com/news/efcc-tool-in-presidents-hand-nnamani/

Yar'Adua presided over the purge and persecution anticorruption crusader Nuhu Rubadu, the former chairman of the EFCC " http://library.fes.de/pdf-files/bueros/nigeria/07813.pdf

In 1999, Nigeria was ranked 134, by 2007, we were at 149th position worse than a lot of African countries! http://www.infoplease.com/world/statistics/2007-transparency-internation...

What does Obasanjo want

CHIDO OR WHATEVER YOUR NAME IS,You guys should all 'SHARAP' where were you all when OBJ was harassing the living day light out of we Nigerians,where? All of you have turned to apostles,now you are trying to bring down the GOVERNMENT OF GEJ,why? Why do you all egg head journalist tell Nigerians the good things GEJ have been going to up-lift Nigeria. Did GEJ cause the problems of Nigeria? Why cant you egg heads tell Nigerians about the Airports,road constructions,railway,second nija bridge,stability in our oil industry,stability in education on like the days of OBJ? Listen you egg heads,GEJ can not do everything,he will do the little he can and then live the rest for the one who will come after him to do his and then leave as well.Everyone in nigeria has turned to a journalist over night,he shoots the BH rascals you say he is distroying the north,he comes up with Amnesty,you say his weak,why do you all speak from the two sides of your mouths.

@Elmango, gradually our polar views narrowing. See Economist

of 4/13/13. http://www.economist.com/news/middle-east-and-africa/21576135-africas-gi.... "When Nigeria’s GDP is reassessed by new criteria that include earnings not on the official balance-sheet, its gap with South Africa, the continent’s largest economy, will narrow. Nigeria’s GDP may rise...by 40% to around $350 billion, not far off South Africa’s $400 billion. If Nigeria goes on growing by 7% a year (as it is expected to in 2013) against South Africa’s present 3%, it will become Africa’s biggest economy within a decade." A legacy of Obasanjo's economic revival, which you cannot say of any other HoS before him. Credit to Pres. Jonathan for staying the course. Nigeria is on its way to fulfilling OBJ's forecast despite naysayers.

@KaparaK. Knowledge is available to one and all that will seek!

Thanks @KaparaK. Knowledge is available to one and all that will seek it. I have no vested interest in any of the present or past players in Nigeria except the goodness their policy bring to the table for ALL Nigerians to rightly enjoy.

You credited OBJ with:"The inauguration of anti-corruption bill;
-monitoring domestic & international campaign to recover looted public funds;
-introduction of universal basic education,
-addressing the energy crisis,
-the promotion of private sector,
-establishment of poverty alleviation program,
-the upward review of the minimum wage, etc.

Where did all the so called OBJ interventions you sited leave us before OBJ was booted out as he trended towards a third term? Do you think we shall attain 20 2020 MDG goals? Why not?
I shall address these issues in due course.

Impact of Obasanjo’s Admin on Nigeria

@ ElMango, I am glad you hit the books. I will further encourage you to read from the links below to learn about the period prior to 1999 when Nigerian socio-political & economic malaise of the Shagari, Buhari, Babangida, Abacha's regimes when the nation was on the verge of collapse. On assumption office, the Obasanjo's admin put in place an enabling environment to revive democracy, regaining international respectability, and putting the economy on the path of sustainable growth. The inauguration of anti-corruption bill; monitoring domestic & international campaign to recover looted public funds; introduction of universal basic education, addressing the energy crisis, the promotion of private sector, establishment of poverty alleviation program, the upward review of the minimum wage, etc. www.unpan1.un.org/intradoc/groups/public/documents/IDEP/UNPAN004220. www.medwelljournals.com/abstract/doi=pjssci.2011.308.315.

OBJ did not single handedly increase our GDP! (2)

Even granted our GDP went up, Is it all about money, what about quality of life? What state did OBJ leave our power, transportation, roads, schools etc, etc?

I willboldly assert that:

B] OBJ did not single handedly increase our GDP!

World crude Oil price increment over that period did it!

"Inflation adjusted oil prices reached an all-time low in 1998 (lower than the price in 1946)! And then just ten years later Oil prices were at the all time high for crude oil (above the 1979-1980 prices) in real inflation adjusted terms."
http://inflationdata.com/Inflation/Inflation_Rate/Historical_Oil_Prices_...

Note that this period coincided with OBJ's rule!

What did OBJ do about corruption except selective application of the law to suppress and oppress his opponents?

History is yet to judge OBJ.

OBJ did not single handedly increase our GDP! (1)

A] In 1998, Falae talked about 'monumental vote rigging'. President Jimmy Carter, an election observer, also questioned the outcome of the poll. http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/africa/287902.stm

In 2004"So the election here was better than in Zimbabwe," I observed.

"Better in some places, worse in others," he replied. There were no constituencies which voted 100% for President Robert Mugabe, hard as he and his supporters tried.

"Those who were already in the queue were allowed to vote and police officers stood at the end of the line, to make sure..." http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/africa/2935491.stm

Remember Anambra under OBJ's watch and Achebe's comment on why he refused National honor?

What about Odi and Gbaramatu?
http://historymatters.co.za/an-open-letter-unfolding-humanitarian-crisis...

Extrajudicial killings of Ige, Marshall. OBJ was Chief of Security!

OBJ’s tenure GDP rose from $50B in 1998 to $300B in 2007

@Elmango Meat, can you prove your innuendoes? What matters to me are the facts about Nigeria’s GDP growth, a legacy of OBJ's economic policy, from the source-link below for you to crosscheck at your convenience. “The GDP in Nigeria was worth 243.98 billion US dollars in 2011, or $450 billion in 2011 estimate of Purchasing Power Parity. As reported by the World Bank, historically, from 1961 until 2011, Nigeria GDP averaged $50B in 1998, reaching $300B in 2007 & an all time high of $450B Purchasing Power Parity in 2011 and a record low of $4.40B in 1961. This page includes a chart with historical data for Nigeria GDP.” Source: www.tradingeconomics.com/nigeria/gdp. Take time to educate yourself on the truth for a change, you might learn something usefull.

@KaparaK, OBJ has always been significant Nigerian role-player.

@KaparaK, you said 'How can a single man impose anybody on 100+ million voters, repeatedly these many years?'

My friend, It is called vote rigging!

If there is anything Nigeria has advanced in, it is being proficient in vote rigging! They used to stuff the boxes, however over the years, they have advanced to simply changing the numbers of the votes by adding as many zeroes as appropriate.

PDP which is the Biggest party in Africa, has advanced the art of election rigging and civilian coercion to a different level! OBJ has been a major player not only in PDP but also in the annals of Nigerian history; both as a military dictator and as a civilian ruler and PDP Chairman. Do you agree that Nigeria is not where she should be in comparison to other countries in the last 40 years? OBJ may yet account for his stewardship to Nigerians as he has had at least 12 years at which he was the significant role-player in mapping out the course of Nigeria, at best tragic!

What does Obasanjor want?

Only him and God knows

The Owu Fox

OBJ wants to be loved and cherished without showing love and genuine endearment to the people.

His second coming was marked by utter lawlessness and assasinations.

Just ask Bola Ige, Harry Marshals and Funsho Williams.

Obasanjo is the worst disease ever to be inflicted on the peoples of the greatest country in Africa.

In 2015, the Nigeria people will not be for Jonathan and not the PDP.

In 2015, the Nigeria people would be voting for neither Jonathan nor the PDP.

The Owu fox would better get ready for prison and ask his contemporaries Musharaf and Mubarak how life looks inside, because he'd be delivered just like he delivered Taylor.

Gratitude of majority of Nigerians expressed in votes for OBJ's

...chosen candidates. Femi Omolade opined that "...if he has done so very well for Nigeria, why is he not receiving the gratitude of the generality of Nigerians?" Whiners like you also complained that OBJ imposed Shagari, Yar'Adua, & Jonathan on you. How can a single man impose anybody on 100+ million voters, repeatedly these many years? Perhaps, he comes to your house & put a gun to your head to force you to vote for his choice. In a democracy, the candidate popular enough to win a majority of the electorates' votes wins. Obviously, OBJ's record of good deeds & trust is credible enough to convince majority of Nigerians to vote for his chosen candidate to continue OBJ’s epoch of unprecedented economic growth policies in the annals of Nigeria, which IMF forecast to overtake South Africa as Africa’s largest economy by 2016. If only you could un-bury your heads from the sands of ignorance to smell the rose for a second. Peace!

obj...baba naija

Instead of castigating baba,why not the people that cant do without him.Did he drag them to Otta?Baba is the only strong man Naija can be proud of,like it or not he is baba naija if not AfriCa baba.Gba be\

MISLEADING HEADLINE.

The headlined should have read WHAT DOES ANENIH WANT. Chido and his likes are always afraid of OBJ even when he is not talking. Anenih wanted BOT chair he got it. He also got chairmanship of Port Authority. He wanted OBJ out of PDP and his loyalists Jonathan has granted his wish. WHY DID ANENIH GO TO OBJ ? Was he invited? How can the headline be upside down? Somebody is confused I think. I know the old man is no fool. After stripping him naked in public they went to cloth him in secret. OBJ is a hot topic any day so it makes some sense to use his name. If it is Chido nobody will even read the story.

Chido,u are part of the problem!

I say this because when you churn out articles like this one,you are giving undue attention to OBJ,thereby contributing to his evil influence.Please,i beg you,just ignore him.If all news media can do this,d man will probably die in less than a year bcos he feeds on attention.This was y he foisted weak MUYA/GEJ,so that we can keep runnin back to him.
Annenih is a paper tiger.He was defeated twice by Adams in his own backyard.He even looks like he is on life support.The PDP house is crumbling.
@ kaparak,angels corner and co,its really not ur fault.u guys have gotten so used to poor leadership that u can celebrate such a corrupt,murderous man as a saint.Sad.

what does Obj want?

That is a childish question because until death do us part he remains the factor and corner stone

Igbobi College

Please as much as I agree with some of all you said, may I correct you that Femi Kuti attended Igbobi College Yaba and not Baptist Academy, thanks.
